Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1

 

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 is a low-priced digital camcorder ($500 as of 9/25/2009) that delivers good-looking video and stills, with image quality just slightly trailing that of HD camcorders priced nearly three times as much.

Good HD video and still image quality ; Inexpensive

MPEG-4 not natively supported by some editing apps ; Image stabilizer is just average

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 provides very good performance for its reasonable price.

Review: Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 HD camcorder

 

Sanyo's Xacti VPC-FH1 is a high-definition (HD) camcorder that delivers good-looking video and stills.

The Xacti VPC-FH1 camcorder uses a single 1/2.5-inch CMOS sensor to capture 1920-by-1080 video at 60 progressive frames per second (60p), 60 interlaced frames per second (60i), or 30 progressive frames per second (30p). The camera can also record...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 HD camcorder

 

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 camcorder provides very good performance for its quite reasonable price.

Good image quality for asking price, above average low-light performance, impressive battery life

MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec incompatible with some editing applications, unintuitive menu

Sanyo has made a name for itself producing high quality, low cost camcorders and the Xacti VPC-FH1 is no exception. While it cannot hope to match high-end models from Canon or Sony, it remains a solid performer nonetheless.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 camcorder

 

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 is a hybrid camera and camcorder, with 1080p video capture

Fair asking price, as well-equipped as the average entry-level compact still camera

Video playback on a large screen was rather jerky

To be fair, the Xacti FH1 is hardly an expensive piece of kit: we think its asking price is fair given the overall still and video quality and the advanced capabilities of the camera. It’s simply that when a product promises Full HD at 1920x1080 and...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 camcorder

 

Sanyo has been steadily building a reputation for excellent quality video cameras recently and the new Xacti FH1 looks like continuing that trend. The headline feature of the Sanyo is Full HD recording. You can capture 1920 x 1080p at 60 frames per...

Very impressive video quality, good stills performance, easy to use

No external mic support

The only real niggles we had with the FH1 were the placement of the controls on the rear of the camera and the inability to use a separate microphone. Otherwise this is a great little camera that for the price provides really excellent video quality in...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 review

 

Sanyo has become all but synonymous with the concept of hybrid digital video/stills cameras and this model offers both high-end video capture and 12Mp of photo detail. However, we weren't fully convinced by its implementation of full HD video.

To be fair, the Xacti FH1 is hardly an expensive piece of kit: we think its £475 asking price is fair given the overall still and video quality and the advanced capabilities of the camera. It’s simply that when a product promises Full HD at 1920x1080...
