Be forewarned -- No Support for Sanyo

Duane E. Kiefer "Selzer", Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: I find it amazing that here is a new model Sanyo Xacti. I own a Xacti HD-2000. I have encountered the black screen of death along with losing precious videos of important events in my life. I tried to find someone to complain to. I also thought perhaps a ROM upgrade might be available. In my search for Sanyo support I found out that Panasonic purchased Sanyo in 2009. By doing so, Panasonic basically eliminated Sanyo from its competition.

Yes....But The Images Are Beautiful

Josh "Josh", Amazon

  • Summary: I see all of the reviews over the years for this ancient Xacti and so many people have been done wrong by Sanyo and this camcorder. But, this is a dissenting viewpoint. It's 2012 and this camera is going into the sunset, so let me tell you what's good about it. I have owned many Canon, Nikon and Sony DSLR's/SLT's and film cameras, but I keep going back to this old Xacti to make images.

  • Summary: i bought this camera years ago. black screen of death after a year or so. spent a day to fix it (you'll find instructions on the web). i probably didnt clean the lubricant from the iris well enough - black screen again after 3 months. in the drawer ever since.maybe i try cleaning it again on a rainy day... it,s just ridiculous that sanyo still sells this item.

This little camera makes a big hit!

Donal B. Botkin "View[ + ]Finder", Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: This review is about the camera. {It is not a complaint about a vendor or problems paying or missing items or the consequences of taking a brand new camera on a mountain before trying it out or some of the other "1-star" reviewers mentioned.} I own the camera and used it to record a variety show put on by a club I belong to.

Sorry I bought this

Uzi "Uzi", Amazon
14 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera some years ago at the local Fry's. At the time it seemed a good idea. Had I known then what I know now I'd have never bought this. Main complaint is short battery life. 2nd main complaint is FINDING A BATTERY that is OEM and not some fly by night battery. Guess what? If you read the owners manual you see Sanyo recommends you do NOT leave the battery in the unit. Fine.

BUYER BEWARE!!! VERY DISSAPPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT AND WITH SANYO LACK OF CUSTOMER SUPPORT!!!

Jen NY, Amazon
30 June 2009
  • Summary: Well we purchased this camcorder over a year ago. I rarely use this only for Christmas, birthdays and of course the kids end of school programs. If I use it 5 times this year that was a lot. It worked fine although it was very confusing to operate. In addition I found this camera to be very awkward to hold. The still photos were okay I never really used this function.

Sanyo Xacti HD1 - POJ

George Atanasoff, Amazon
24 February 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera one year ago just prior to one of my mountain climbing expeditions. I liked it for the lightweight and the HD performance. I bouth it from a shop in San Francisco and paid over $900. I think this was the worst product I have ever purchased. The camera did not make me any movie in the mountains (in any mountains, not just this one). Once at high altitude I felt so frustrated that almost threw it down from 15,000 ft.

Worth every penny

E. Kavet, Amazon
14 December 2007
  • Summary: I did quite a bit of research on the Sanyo Xacti and other waterproof digital video cameras. The choice was between the Sanyo, Olympus or the Pentax Optio. I chose the Sanyo for its style, design and ease of operation. I took the camera to Miami Beach and had a blast with it. I was not let down. I had no problem hanging on to the Xacti even when knocked over by a wave. The quality of the video is suberb.The still images are razor sharp.
