Summary: The Xacti HD700 7MP MPEG-4 HD 720p camcorder is a compact unit which is suitable for lower-end video sessions, perhaps for a family or website quick shots. If you have large hands, this camera's controls become rather tricky to access and use. The menu system is less than appealing.
Summary: I feel the same about this product as the previous reviewer. I was so excited about this camcorder. I had been looking at the other Xacti models and was about to purchase the waterproof Xacti when I found out that this HD version was coming out in a few days. I ordered it immediately.
Summary: I heard many good things about this camcorder. Video is just great on it no doubt about that, but stills pictures - even though it's a 7MP camera, the stills pictures come out blurry and with snow spots, it takes nice pictures in outdoor, but not what I would expect from a 7MP ($480) camera.
Good for the low price. I'll keep it, but barely...

Summary: First off, I'm a canon SLR user and I'm familiar with photography and taking pictures etc. I read through the manual for this item as well as went to the Sanyo site on how to take better pictures. I have two major with this product. One is the hunting focusing.
mediocre digital camera, and a medium video camera...

Summary: i got the camera and tested it into my office building at 12pm near the windows and i found the quality of my film to be grainy, quite a lot actually. the spanning across the room wasn't fluid.
Summary: I purchased this camera and opened the box excited by the design style and small form factor. This camera is really nice looking and the screen works great. I recorded some video and went to play it through the HDMI dck attached to my HDTV. I watched the video and thought I had something screwed up.
Summary: Prior reviewers had mentioned the field of view being too narrow, but I bought the HD700 anyway, thinking that the reviews were subjective and my mileage may vary. I was optimistic that maybe the HD700 had been slammed by videophiles, and that it would be more than good enough for my needs, which...
Worth it at $300 otherwise overpriced and unacceptable

Summary: Let's be clear, if you're looking at this product you're not a prosumer or expert - or you'll be very disappointed. You're most probably an average user like me who favors portability over image quality.
Summary: Well I purchased this hoping that it would perform like it is advertised. Well that was hoping for too much I guess. I received my first one and I must say that the build quality and feel in your hands is great. I then shoot video outdoors and pictures.
Summary: I have to say I was very excited to read about this camcorder when it was announced because of an upcoming trip my wife and I are taking to Australia. The size, weight and the fact that it is a HD camcorder was quite appealing. Unfortunately the camera fell short on the output side of things.
