If you don't know much about Sanyo's Xacti series of camcorders, blame the manufacturer's lack of popularity in the United States or perhaps the nontraditional upright body design. Their latest high definition model, the VPC-HD2000, is as worthy as any...

Sanyo has provided a number of features that will interest experienced videographers. There's no viewfinder, but you have a microphone input, headphone output, and accessory shoe. The manual controls are surprisingly robust, including an ISO/gain...

Strong overall performance, robust manual controls…all for around $600

Excellent color accuracy; Solid low light results; A host of controls

Menu is downright Byzantine

Longtime videographers might not be accustomed to the upright configuration of the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000, but this camcorder is certainly worthy of consideration among the top dogs in high definition camcorders. With the HD2000, you’ll get strong...

Sanyo's VPC-HD2000 makes HD recording easy and comfortable

Plenty of features for price ; Solid pictures ; Style

No hard disk ; No HDMI cable or memory card

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 camcorder review

 

Sanyo has updated its flagship pistol grip camcorder with the new HD2000, but has the update been worth it? We get recording to find out. Compact but chunky, the new HD2000 replaces the HD1010 and takes a similar form factor. The pistol grip design...

Simple, easy to use, Full HD looks crisp and impressive

Basic in its feature set, you'll need a powerful computer to edit the footage, you'll need a big SD card

If the price was slightly lower, which it no doubt will be online, this is one still worth a closer look

With its handgrip, Sanyo's VPC-HD2000 is a real point and shoot camcorder

Plenty of features for price ; Solid pictures ; Style

No hard disk ; No HDMI cable or memory card

The HD2000 is aimed at the casual user, and its easy operation and good HD pictures should keep those on a budget happy

James takes a closer look at Sanyo's 'dual purpose' Xacti VPC-HD2000 Full HD camcorder.

. The only potential downside is that, as you will be using a smaller physical area of the chip when zoomed in to the maximum, low light performance will be slightly worse.

Sanyo's VPC-HD2000 camcorder is a surprising update to the company's VPC-HD1010, which it launched just a few months ago.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 review

 

Sanyo's Xacti camcorders were the first to combine video recording with the ability to take stills. It's a happy marriage and one that has logic on its side: if you want to record something for posterity enough to video it, chances are you would also...

We’re not sure whether we’d pay £500 for a combined camera and video camera given the low cost of flash-based camcorders, but if you’ve the budget for an HD model, the Sanyo Xacti HD2000 won’t disappoint. If the high megapixel count is less important...

Sanyo's latest Full HD, 8 megapixel camcorder has Sony and Canon in its sights. Let battle commence...

Knockout images and a bunch of creative features for those who won’t settle for ‘auto'. Shame about the handgrip though

Expert review by:

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 camcorder review

 

The pistol grip camcorder has gone from Sanyo's trump card to a ubiquitous imaging gadget in just a few short years. So how does the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 compare to its cheaper, Full HD packing rivals? Will it win the £250 You've Bee Framed prize? Or...

Cheap for what it does, easy to use

Slow mo mode is awkward

A decent enough HD camcorder stuck between the ultra cheap models from Flip and the pricier Sony Handycams

Product Specifications

The Sanyo Xacti HD2000 is truly the benchmark in high definition, offering 1920 x 1080 pixels, and 60 fields per second to record crystal clear and smooth motion for videos. These highly advanced Sanyo Xacti dual cameras not only offer the regular 1080i (interlaced) format, recording at 60 frames per second, but with the Sanyo proprietary CMOS engine, recording is possible in 1080p (progressive) format - this means the world's first dual camera recording at a full 60 frames per second. With this higher frame rate capturing ability, videos look more professional, and offer smoother, higher quality images. The Sanyo Xacti HD2000 is not just a camcorder it's a dual camera.
