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: 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: 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.
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. The reason I love this camera so much comes right down to a few little details. 1: It has a flash card (I bought a 8gb SDHC Class 6 transcend card on ebay for ~$30) and it is so easy to take it out and play it on my computer or PS3.
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 in my opinion. The main reason is that you have to be crazy to record anything but MP4 directly to flash memory / media cards today.
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). I love the shape -- it's much easier for me to hold than my old mini-DV camera. It is amazingly easy to use.
