      Disadvantages

      Excellent results from a very capable camcorder

      The Sanyo VPC-HD1A camcorder has exceeded my expectations. Easy to use either for stills or video clips with excellent quality pictures, capable zoom - I managed reasonable close ups from 100yds of a penguin using full optical + digital zoom. Battery life enabled shooting over 3 days without recharging and with a 2 gig + 256 mb cards captured 6 weeks filming in New Zealand. Haven't yet explored HD as I have no HD TV. I was able to carry the camera on my belt unobtrusively and conveniently and the orientation of the camera made shooting easy. Sometimes difficult to find a small target when zooming but immediate editing provided a solution. Assembling the finished film is very easy with the addition of sound and effects wide ranging.

  • Product Details

    The Sanyo VPC-HD1a Xacti Media Camera with 10x Optical Zoom is a high-definition compact digital media device that combines the functionality of a digital camera and a digital camcorder. Different than a standard digital camera that shoots short video clips, the VPC-HD1a offers advanced, next-generation video performance and high-quality stills in one small, lightweight camera.

    This powerful little device is designed to record both 720-pixel high-definition video and snap 5.1-megapixel digital still images, all of which are handily stored to a standard SD flash memory card. The high-precision LSI (large-scale integration) for image processing is the real "muscle" behind the Xacti HD1a's ability to record high-definition video. This powerful "high-definition engine" processes a massive number of calculations in a short period of time and enables the HD1a's high-definition 720p processing, real-time MPEG-4 compression, and noise reduction.
