Features

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1010 features full-HD recording of 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution at 60 frames per second capability. The camcorder features high sensitivity compensation at 3200 that allows the larger CMOS sensor to capture much more light and low noise level. Combined with a wider dynamic range the camcorder is able to provide richer, natural gradations. Images are processed using advanced MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 image compression technology. The Xacti VPC-HD1010 also features Face Chaser Function for Stills and Videos that works for both still and motion images, where faces of up to 12 persons in the frame are detected, and the focus and exposure are controlled to match the central subject; Wide Dynamic Range for Stills reduces over-saturation of dark and light areas and allows for tonal gradations by combining two images—one of which prioritizes the exposure of dark areas, the other of which prioritizes the exposure of bright areas—into a single photo and produces optimal contrast; High-Sensitivity ISO 3200 Stills for capturing shots in situations where blurring commonly occurs, such as in dimly lit rooms or at night; Super Macro Shooting to a minimum distance of 1 cm; Scene Selected Shot; Filter Functions; and Sequential Shooting of 7 shots at 4-megapixel resolution. Users can share these images and recordings via the supplied cradle which has an HDMI, component video, and USB outputs for connections to an HDTV, PC or printer. The camcorder comes bundled with Nero 8 Essentials (Windows® XP/Vista), Xacti Screen Capture 1.1, as well as PictBridge.

  • Standard TV output problems

    Has anyone had trouble connecting to a non-HD TV ? I only get scan lines that tell me the resolution is too high for the TV in spite of the fact that I have set my TV output options. I get the same results with S-video and composite. It seems that either the camera is not trying to output the format I have specified, or that a full-HD signal will not downsample and output correctly. The manual says nothing about being unable to playback 1080 signals to a 480 TV.
