  • Conclusion: In conclusion I really love this camera and would have no problem buying it myself or recommending it to anyone else. Apart from the unincluded HDMI cable I cannot find any real faults as it did exactly what it said on the box , a small, easy to use full HD Dual camera at a very reasonable price. What more can I say ?

From the Lab Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1

Macworld
22 October 2009
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Sanyo’s Xacti VPC-FH1 is a high-definition (HD) camcorder that delivers good-looking video and stills. However, the tradeoff comes in its lack of bells and whistles. The VPC-FH1 omits several features that make those more-expensive cameras easier to use under many conditions, and pricier models also provide more image control.
  • Pros: Good HD video and still image quality
  • Cons: Image stabilizer is just average

Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 review

Techworld
15 June 2009
  • Summary: To be fair, the Xacti FH1 is hardly an expensive piece of kit: we think its £475 asking price is fair given the overall still and video quality and the advanced capabilities of the camera. It’s simply that when a product promises Full HD at 1920x1080 and 60fps progressive capture at that, we expect superlative results. The Sanyo Xacti FH1 gives reasonable results and provided us with some memorable footage.

  • Excerpt: Sanyo has become all but synonymous with the concept of hybrid digital video/stills cameras and this model offers both high-end video capture and 12Mp of photo detail. However, we weren't fully convinced by its implementation of full HD video.

  • Excerpt: The Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 is a low-priced digital camcorder that delivers good-looking video and stills, with image quality just slightly trailing that of HD camcorders priced nearly three times as much. Indeed, with an RRP of just $799, it's pretty hard to go wrong.
  • Pros: Good image quality for asking price, above average low-light performance, impressive battery life
  • Cons: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec incompatible with some editing applications, unintuitive menu

Sanyo VPC-FH1 Xacti HD Dual Camera

PhotoReview
1 November 2009
  • Summary: A compact, Full HD camcorder that can also record high-resolution still photographs.Sanyo dubs its VPC-FH1 a 'Dual Camera' because it fulfils two purposes. With its 8-megapixel sensor and 10x optical zoom lens, it's usable for shooting stills but it also supports Full HD video recording with a stereo soundtrack.
  • Pros: You want a compact camcorder that can record both still pictures and HD video clips., You'd like P, A, S and M shooting modes., You enjoy shooting close-ups of flowers and other small objects., You require good performance at moderately high sensitivity settings. Don't buy this camera if :, You require high quality, distortion-free still pictures for printing at larger than snapshot sizes., You require fast response times for action photography.
