Outdoor use: GOOD Indoor use: Not so Good

Dana Dorsey "Double D", Amazon
20 March 2007
  • Summary: I really want to give it a 3 1/2 stars. This camera is worth the money Although, if you're left handed like myself, keeping a steady hand while holding with your right hand takes practice. The movie quality is a nitch above average.

Handy Little Camera

©oope®, Amazon
13 February 2007
  • Summary: I got this camera because it was the deal of the day and was $480. I'm not much a videographer. But it is a very nice little camera, takes decent photos, and sharp videos. It's compact so you don't need to leave it behind. Who knows, maybe you'll catch the next Rodney King video.

good all in one camera/video

Justin H. Bliss, Amazon

  • Summary: If you want good videos look elswhere. its okay as long as you have lots of light. Try to video in the evening, or indoors and you won't even be able to focus. I tried to video my daughter this evening with the lights turned down a little low(I could see fine) and camera wouldn't pick up any light...

Almost.. but not quite

High Def, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • Summary: Perhaps it was too much to ask. HD quality video; high quality stills; good sound quality; tiny, user friendly package; and a price below $1000. I want to love this camera, but while it is almost as billed, it just misses the mark.

Not Bad, but not Great

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • Summary: Good: HD wow! Small and still comfortable to hold. Easy and intuitive control settings Bad: Not suitable for low light situations. I compared this side by to my Sony DV and it was not comparable. Lag in filming and then viewing.

what no one has said about taking pictures while filming

fantasyphile, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • Summary: After doing research for 2 days, I went ahead and decided to give the HD1A a shot. As far as picture and video quality go, I was rather pleased. Without a side-by-side comparison, it reminded me very much of my Nikon Coolpix 5700 in terms of low light.

It Really Depends What You're Looking For

Aaron P. Thomas, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • Summary: The main reason I purchased this camera is because I was looking for a good "all in one" camera/camcorder solution. I chose the Sanyo because it's affordable (compared to any other HD camcorder), I wanted to shoot in High-Def Widescreen, and the still camera offered a decent amount of mega pixels...

Great Concept, but not quite there yet

Murfman19, Amazon
16 April 2006
  • Summary: I don't do reviews...but I was disappointed enough that I thought it might be helpful to hear my experience. I saw this beauty and thought "this has it all!" If you're looking for either a still digital camera or video unit, this one will probably catch your eye.

Best camera for the price, but beware of some problems

jack crossfire, Amazon
15 April 2006
  • Summary: This is the best HD camera for the price. It's the lightest HD camera of any kind. The quality is equivalent to professional SD cameras from 10 years ago if you're careful. You can get more resolution, more features, and more weight, for more money.
