Summary: I love this camera, bought the first one about 3 years ago and my daughter dropped it in the river. Tried to get it to work after but nothing, so I bought another because it is the best camera ever
Summary: When I bought this nifty pistol grip I took lots of video and pix but had nothing to do with the video because it was ahead of its time on format. It would freeze up when I played video. I couldn't get support.
Excerpt: The reason why I Wanted to talk about this camera was because I had some experience with this camera/camcorder. For $1000 I was border line happy with it. I can’ say that it was the best camcorder that I have ever had but t served it’s purpose and …
Summary: Love the small portable size. It's easy to use, too. The zoom capability is phenomenal. Don't even need the digital zoom. HD quality picture is superb, even when played back on our big 42" HD TV. Takes very nice still pictures also. Battery life isn't bad at all.
Summary: A few negative reviews did not stop me, and I'm very glad I went this direction. I just hope my review is not too late, hopefully prospective buyers of updated models will see this. The ease of use with our widescreen is key.
Excerpt: A while ago, on this site, I reviewed the newer Sanyo Xacti HD2000. As the two models cost about the same (a couple hundred dollar difference), so I decided that it was a good idea to review the HD1000 as well to give you a better idea of what …
Summary: Other than low lighting the camera performs well. I use it outside on airport ramp. -It came with lots of stuff. remote, case, cables, cables and more cables. -Works great with ADATA 16GB SDHC Item#:N82E16820211245
Pros: Size, Zoom, Instant on and record, Design.. Battery life seems pretty good. I go all day with on and off shooting short clips.
Cons: Not very good in low lighting (That's enough to drop one egg from rating), Cost.
Summary: I teach martial arts part time and will be using this camera to record belt test, demo, tournaments and various occassion. There will be times where I would post such videos on the schools website and youtube. The size of this camera is also great for transporting it.
Pros: HD Quality Compact Easy Access Controls All in one docking station Design is a head turner and very comfortable to hold Easy on camera menu, very customizable
Cons: Lacking a light to assist for video mode in low light Not good if you are left handed Most AVCHD editing software requires dual core 2.4Ghz processor or higher. So if you have an old PC, good luck editing it. It can be done by converting the AVCHD to a more editable format such as AVI etc. But wh...
Summary: We've returned this item within three weeks. The picture quality is very poor and unstable. It definately has a big problem with stability. The HD picture is clear but it changes the color all the time while watching the video, it is very disturbing. I do not recommend this product to anyone.
Summary: I love this camera. This is my fourth Xacti (C40-C6-HD700) and now HD1000. I've had it for about three months. Night and day comparison to the older models. I only shoot in 1080x720 60fps and I'm extremely pleased.
