In my first post (which strangely I cannot edit) the footage is 1440x1080 (not x1280).
I forgot to mention that their HD footage is further down on their product page (the first video is their sales presentation). The video can also been seen directly at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYSdCwsBjvc (make sure you select the 1080p viewing mode).

Unfortunately, one cannot edit an original post. Only someone with a MOD console, like Steve G. here, can do that. Now, you should also not be able to edit any of your replies, when another replies to that - though sometimes the Edit button still works for me. Also, I have had many instances, where I quickly returned to a reply, with more info, and it had no replies, but also had no Edit button. Why? No one on the Forum Comments board can offer any clues.

Good luck, and let us know about this camera.
Sorry, Neale. For some reason even I can't edit that first post.
But oh well. You got the message through.
Dang, you must have worn out that MOD's console...
I haven't tried one Neale nor even heard of the brand. I'm a bit of a brand snob and my miniDV Panasonic camcorder works so well that I would be hesitant to try such an HD camcorder.
That said, my local videostore has a Purtek LED micro projector on sale for $99 identical to this one at the link.
It weighs about a pound and is supposed to be able to project an image 48 inches wide. Does anyone have any experience with a micro projector?
Didn't Dick Tracey's super wrist watch have one of those? [Note: Dick Tracy is a comic book detective character in the US, and he had (going back many decades, like the 1930's) a wrist watch with full video, audio, and all sorts of "special features." I would imagine that Ian Fleming modeled some of James Bond's wrist watches after some of those used by Dick Tracy]
Now, on a more serious note, it seems that some recent smart phones offer a micro projector add-on. I have not seen any in action, nor do I know how they might differ. I'd like to see one in action. My wife does tons of presentations, and has a Blackberry "World Phone," but I do not know if it allows for these projector modules. Normally, she just has her communications department either bring the gear (small truck load), or they go in the day before and work with the venue's AV department, or the AV company hired for the event.
Interesting. Curious how steady one must hold the device - rock-solid would be my guess.
Thanks for providing that link. Something new every day.
