Sanyo HD1000 review

 

Never have we willed a camcorder to succeed quite like Sanyo's HD1000. From the all-black finish to the outsized metal lens barrel, it packs more features into its tiny pistol-grip body than camcorders twice the size. And while previous generations of...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1000

 

Fitting snugly into one hand, the HD1000 can record either 4-megapixel still photos or HD (1080) video onto the same SDHC memory card. Shutter buttons, zoom and menu controls fall neatly under one thumb, and the light (270g) chassis nonetheless manages...

Colours are muted, details are weak and the focus occasionally misses its mark, resulting in footage that doesn’t stand up well on a big TV. In order to use the HDMI connection, you have to carry around the Sanyo’s docking cradle, and the electronic...

The Sanyo’s sci-fi styling begs the question: is it a camera or camcorder? Unfortunately, the answer can’t be found in its average movies and even more average snaps. The Xacti is well priced and well specified for the price but might not give the...

A good price coupled with outstanding image quality - a good alternative to the Panasonic HDC-HS9.

For a camcorder enthusiast looking for a cheap model, this may be of interest, but to anyone looking for the best of both worlds, this is far from it.

Sanyo Xacti HD1000 Review

 

Even with a skimpy software package that includes Nero 7 Essentials and Ulead MovieFactory 5.0 SE, the HD1000 is an excellent buy. We love the portability and video quality, and even the option to shoot stills while recording video. (The cam's 4-MP...

Very good video quality, Well-placed, easy to use controls, Ultralight, pistol-grip design, Sharp 4-MP still photos

Difficult to hold steady, Some tearing in video

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1000 Camcorder Review

 

Set Phasers to HD - Hands down, the HD 1000 gets its highest marks for coolness. Whip it out at the next family reunion and envy will fill the air. This camera is genuinely stylish; add in its light weight and small size and it becomes a very useful...

Looks great, Multiple outputs provide flexibility, Truly ergonomic

Awkward manual focus / exposure controls, Noisy image in low light, Onboard mic slightly tinny, Video out only on docking station
