best camera camcorder ever

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.
Summary: This product is amazing for the price. It has great color very crisp greens, blues, and reds. Very small and light weight fits into the palm of your hand. I found the menus to be logical and the controls easy to use. You also get a remote control to use for play back and recording. It comes with a docking station you can use to record HD video directly to an external hard drive or computer. The anti-shake feature works great.
Summary: I've had this camera since just after it launched. I have used it in a number of situations and have found that it performs quite well - doing what it says it will do and doing it quite well. I recommend the camera - if you have the tools to support it (more on that below). In summary: Pros: 1. Compact - carry it with you all the time if you want 2. Easy to use 3. Good feature set 4. Good video quality Cons: 1. Occasional focusing issues 2.
Summary: I love this cute HD camcorder. My priorities are as follows in order: 1. small enough to carry around anywhere 2. Better video quality than miniDV 3. Easy video editing I don't do video editing usually but this product allows editing the video from the camcorder without PC. Even the files in external hard disk can be edited without PC connection. Wow! This is enough for me. The picture quality is very good and far enough for consumer market.
Summary: Initially, I had purchased the Xacti HD2, basing the purchase off reviews from Amazon. Boy, what a let down. Awful HD picture quality: muddied lows, over-exagerated highlights, FisherPrice-like compression. Yet, the SD (standard definition) quality was spot-on. Seeing as I was looking for HD, though, I returned it and began reading reviews for the HD1000; initally I was wary that Sanyo would offer up the same shortcomings as it had with the HD2. Not to worry.
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.
