Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1 (EXBL)

 

An ultra-compact high-definition Sanyo camcorder with 720p resolution

Attractive design (especially for the asking price), decent video performance, solid array of features

Only' 720p, Xacti pistol-purists will feel betrayed, still image mode is average at best

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1 (EXBL) is a good camcorder that does a fair job in most areas. Its low price tag makes up for its assorted flaws.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1

 

Very light and easy to use. Nice to have a different colour to balck

In Low light the HD seting is very grainy, lowering the image quality gives better results

Great Quality for the money

 

Bought this for family sporting events and vacations. Works perfectly just for that. Battery life could definately be longer, but overall good v-cam. Great quality vids and easy to download. Easy to learn for the new user.

Lightweight, Compact, Easy to Use
