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: 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.
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: 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.
Summary: I want to be very clear when I say that this is my favorite camera I've ever used. With that being said, this camera is not as sharp as other more expensive models on the market. That aside, this camera takes great video.
Summary: For the price and size of this camera, it is PHENOMENAL! Quality is EXCELLENT! But if you're looking at this camera, take a look at the HD1010 (I think it is) coming out in July; it offers slow motion @ 300fps.
Summary: I'll try to add some details to this review later, but I wanted to provide everyone with my evaluation after agonizing over these 2 cameras (and others). Now remember, I've been a Sony video enthusiast since the mid-80's, but nothing compares to these 2 Sanyo cameras in the consumer video category...
Summary: I"ve had this camera for a few weeks now, and so far I really love it. It does exactly what I wanted a camera to do: it takes very very nice video AND still photos (in other words, it's a true "hybrid" camera). It has a great 10X optical zoom (I turned off the digital zoom immediately).
