Sanyo VPC-HD1010 review

 

With its pistol-grip design and small dimensions, the VPC-HD1010 looks like the ultimate in point-and-shoot simplicity.

Sanyo HD1010 review

 

The Sanyo HD1000 is dead. Long live the HD1010 with progressive Full HD and super slow-mo mode

Sports an impressive new progressive mode, but more of an update than a sequel

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1010 review

 

Sanyo's Xacti VPC-HD1010 is a high-definition camcorder that's much smaller than your typical HD model, making it ideal for carrying with you around town. In fact, we found the VPC-HD1010 to be an exciting little device, full of features and capable of...

The Sanyo Xacti HD1010 is a charming little device. Its HD video comes close to the quality produced by full-sized consumer HD camcorders, and its still photos are good enough to replace a no-frills point-and-shoot digital still camera. If you’re...

Feature-packed and capable of shooting good quality video and stills, but it's not the easiest thing to use.

Expert review by: Chris Jager (goodgearguide.com.au)

Sanyo Xacti HD1010

 

When most people think about video cameras, Sanyo is not the first company that comes to mind. For the past decade, the Japanese manufacturer has been...

Superb image quality for the asking price, solid low-light performance, huge array of inbuilt modes and features

Rubbish menu interface, no optical image stabiliser, underpowered optical zoom

The Sanyo Xacti HD1010 is one of the best HD camcorders we've reviewed in this price range, combining comprehensive manual features with top-grade video quality. Despite the unwieldy controls and difficult menu interface, it remains a winner.

Sanyo Xacti HD1010

 

Excellent still photos ; Great video clarity ; Smaller than most camcorders ; Hot shoe for accessories ; Cables included ; Wide variety of shooting modes ; Easy-to-use interface

Some streaking and jitter with motion video ; Highest video resolution isn't currently Mac-compatible

Product Specifications

This compact Xacti HD1010 is easy to carry anywhere. Now you can take stunning full-HD videos any time you like. The HD1010 sports a well balanced, vertically oriented design that fits comfortably in one hand, so you can enjoy long shooting sessions without tiring your wrist. The Xacti HD1010 adopts the MPEG-4 AVC/H264 format for high-compression recording. The resulting files are small in size, yet offer picture quality as good as, or better than, DVD (MPEG-2). A high-speed shooting mode enables smooth and detailed slow-motion playback. And to help keep your images steady, the HD1010 uses a digital image stabilizer to eliminate the effects of unwanted shaking. More than just a movie-shooter, the dual-function Xacti HD1010 also captures still images with ease. An original algorithm employs a pixel-interpolation filter to convert the 4-megapixel captured by the CMOS to the recorded equivalent of 8-megapixel. Another proprietary Sanyo technology creates a wide dynamic range for stills, so that both dark and light areas can be captured at optimal exposure levels.
