Why this new interest in fractions with decimal fractions in the denominator? What's wrong with saying 11mm?
The success of Flip’s pocket camcorders has seen a fair few manufacturers scrambling to grab a share of this potentially lucrative market. Many of us, it seems, quite like the idea of owning a product that lies somewhere between a cameraphone and a camcorder. Samsung’s HMX-U10 is for the person who wants a highly portable …

A 1/2.3" sensor is actually about 7.7mm on the diagonal.
You say that when the video was played back on a PC, it was jerky. Since the device itself doesnt seem to be involved in this case, that implies the file itself is jerky - it sounds like transcoding could have fixed up the timecodes in the clip to make it playable.
Since playback from the device itself takes up considerably less cycles that record, I would assume, from you comments, that the record process is a bit cack resulting in dodgy files.
"Since playback from the device itself takes up considerably less cycles that record, I would assume, from you comments, that the record process is a bit cack resulting in dodgy files." No the recorded files were fine. otherwise the transcoded files would have audio that was out of sync.
Still all we want is a small device with 720p at 30 fps (not 25 or god forbid 24) and a 10x optical zoom. OIS and a single button to set the white balance. That would do me :)
