AVCHD 720p/60 a problem?

Re: flexibility

Currently, no consumer camcorders do 1080p at 30 FPS. All of them are 1080i or 720p. However, there are a few 1080p ones on the horizon. There are two digital still cameras that do 1080p currently though. They are the Canon SX1-IS and the 5D MKII.

Therefore, you have it all backwards.

The truth is that 720p @ 30 FPS is all the average consumer can even use. 720p @ 60 FPS might be good for some situations but 1080p is not necessary for home videos.

Note: 720-anything is pretty skinny. Real HD camcorders are capable
of 1080 lines, and digital cameras need to get there before they can
truly start to compete. These industries are probably moving towards
some kind of convergence in the future, when a single device will be
able to shoot HD (or whatever format comes after it) and high quality
still pictures. But we're not there yet.
