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 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: 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 first purchased the Sanyo 700 series HD camera and was not satisfied with the EIS or quality of the video as it relates to clarity and saturation. I played back the video on a relatively fast core duo machine with Nerovision and was very disappointed. The HD1000 is a little larger in size, but the quality of the 1080p video is just amazing.
Summary: I have a Sony HDR-SR1, which I've had for a year and loved, but it only comes out when I know I want to shoot video... and so I've missed some spur of the moment footage because I simply didn't have it with me. I bought the Xacti to carry around all the time. First off, this camera was designed to work with the Mac, and even comes wiht iTunes and Quicktime on the DVD in the box.
Summary: I have recently purchased a Sanyo Xacti HD1000 and love it. My main requirements were: 1. Small so that I can take it anywhere. 2. Easy to transfer video to computer for editing and back up 3. Shoot great video 4. Take a decent photo in a pinch. This camera performs all perfectly. I don't have one complaint!
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.
