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

Sanyo HD1000 review

Sanyo Xacti CG9 - Camcorder


Sanyo has really upped the tempo in the camcorder market, they are definitely one of the most exciting ones out there and they certainly don't flatter to deceive. The all new spanking new version of the Xacti camcorder has been released and this time...

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...

Sanyo VPC-HD1000


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.
