Excerpt: My brother-in-law sold us his Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD 1000 for a cheap cost of $400. He barely used it,it was in perfect condition when it was sent to us, with the receit that proves he purchased it for $700. I was in awe when I saw thi camcorder. Its appearance is like an electirc shaver, so tiny, it is the most modern looking camcorder I have ever seen. It weighs just over 300 grams it can perfectly fit in your pocket.
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 I guess that’s where I had to leave it. I was less intrigued by the way that it was made. I guess I’m used to my camcorders looking like “camcorders.
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: Easy to use and handle. My family used this one for making family HD-Movie and they are reliable, except that we need another pack of battery. Taking pictures are also in good quality, easy to switch between picture and video. A good value for money. At first the seller suggested and let me try and compare between this one and other brands of the same price and this one wins all in every aspect.
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. I don't think even quick time or any of the better video editing software was capable of using its contents. I remember when I checked on line to see what I was doing wrong there was a lot of exasperation.
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. Took many short movies of the scenery on a trip to Utah. Zion National Park was amazing! Looks just as great at home on the TV.
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. We just pop the camera in it's charging base and can randomly access any video we have ever taken from the easy chair with the tiny remote provided.
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 to expect. First off the general shape/size/weight of the HD1000 is similar to the HD2000. The HD1000 unfortunately only offers a 10x optical zoom instead of a 16x.
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. I upload all footage to Sony Vegas and render a new mp4 file for online places like Motionbox and Viemo. Does okay at night as well. This shouldn't be compared to some JVC high end professional camera. If you get a good price on this unit I'd go for it.
