Sanyo VPC-HD2000

 

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...

Sanyo VPC-HD2000

 

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 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

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 camcorder

 

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. At £549, plus the PC or Mac you are no doubt going to have to buy to actually edit the footage you've captured,...

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

At £549, plus the PC or Mac you are no doubt going to have to buy to actually edit the footage you've captured, the Sanyo VPC-DH2000 is a nice camera, but one that you'll probably find you aren't making full use of.

Sanyo VPC-HD2000 review

 

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

Lots of features and good picture quality make this an excellent buy

Sanyo VPC-HD2000 review

 

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 Xacti VPC-HD2000 camcorder review

 

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

Cheap for what it does, easy to use

Slow mo mode is awkward
