Summary: All the reasons I bough this a couple years ago are still valid. Native 1080P HD MP4 vid format, JPEG pics, TAKE PICS WHILE YOU"RE FILMING!!! swappable SDHC mem so you can't run out, available lenses & adapters that screw on - ie wide angle.
Summary: This camcorder does a great job and is so small and compact that it's easy to bring along just about anywhere. I initially wanted this model because it can take video at high speeds for short bursts; however, the picture quality is so high that I found taking video at normal speed and replaying in slow motion worked just fine.
You won't be disappointed with this camera - much better than Obama.

Summary: One of the best camcorders on the market. With a 16 or 32GB SDHC card you can record literally hours of crystal clear (full 1080HD resolution) video. Also takes exellent 8 Megapixel still shots. I would advise to use only good quality SD cards however (e.g., Scandisk Ultra - class 6 or higher), as there are many cheap ones available that could be a problem.
IF YOUR THINKING ON GETTING IT.........GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: Truly, the most impressive camcorder i've ever seen.It has EVERYTHING. Not only is the video outstanding, but the picture quality is also as good. VERY RARE to have this good quality in such an affordible camcorder. I bought mine #MINT# for about 240$, and I am loving it. One of the reasons why I bought this camcorder is that it is very universal for mac, and also has alot of settings to adjust your video to your liking. REASONS TO BUY: 1.
Summary: When I read the reviews for this camera, it was often compared to the Canons (HF10 and HF20) which were two to three times more expensive. This camera has a large (37mm) lens and a 1/2.5 CMOS sensor (slightly smaller than a half-inch) which provides decent low light sensitivity. No external microphone connections. Don't expect to make professional videos with this camera all by itself.
Summary: All I can say is WOW!!!! Well, no, that's not all I can say, because if it was I wouldn't be writing a review. Since this is a review, I suppose I should start by being mean; the cons. 600 fps is REALLY BAD quality. I'm talking CAN'T MAKE OUT SOMEONE'S FACE FROM 15 FEET AWAY bad. But on the other hand, if the lighting is really perfect and it's a good, stable shot, it can be really awesome looking.
Summary: This is my fifth camcorder, and as to be expected as technology advances, by far the best. The features have been described enough times that they need little repetition, but for those finding fault, there's barely any aspect of this device which either doesn't perform to remarkably high standards, or which can't be worked around to ensure good results. To start, the VPC-FH1a is diminutive and lightweight.
Summary: This may sound like a commercial, but I love the camera. It has replaced my Sony DCR-DVD610, which is a few years old. It is really small, just under the size of a soda can. The battery life is pretty amazing for my needs. I recorded a high school football game over the weekend, and it made it through the entire game in full HD 30fps.
Summary: I bought this camcorder Sanyo VPC-FH1 for about 6 months now, I am getting better everyday. I am happy with its qualifty for video and photo. I set it up manually with Shutter Priority S:60 or 125 (Aperture & ISO will be on Auto) The rest is not that important, either ON or OFF... The minimum shutter speed 1/60s is required for day and night video at walking speed objects, or 1/125s for sport events...Stereo sound recording live is excellent for concert...
