Summary: The Sanyo Xacti HD1010 is one of the best HD camcorders we've reviewed in this price range, combining comprehensive manual features with top-grade video quality. Despite the unwieldy controls and difficult menu interface, it remains a winner.
Pros: Superb image quality for the asking price, solid low-light performance, huge array of inbuilt modes and features
Cons: Rubbish menu interface, no optical image stabiliser, underpowered optical zoom
Excerpt: With its pistol-grip design and small dimensions, the VPC-HD1010 looks like the ultimate in point-and-shoot simplicity. It's smaller than most fully featured HD camcorders but not as easy to slip in a pocket as Kodak's Zi6. However, the Zi6 lacks the VPC-HD1010's large lens and optical zoom. Despite looking similar to Sanyo's other simple but fun designs, such as the VPC-CG9, the VPC-HD1010 has a huge range of shooting modes, manual controls and extra features.
Summary: In the realm of HD camcorders, Sanyo's HD1010 feels like an old friend. From the HD1 to the HD1000 we've seen its lineage through thick and thin and, so far, it’s improved with every step. The competition's been hotting up, though, with Sony's titanium clad HDR-TG3 and Samsung's surprisingly able HMX20. So what's Sanyo done to improve on the trusty, four-star rated 1000?
Summary: Sanyo HD1010 er det eneste kamera med pistolgreb. Pistolgrebet gør det let at filme uden at ryste, og samtlige betjeningsknapper er nemme at komme til, hvilket i sig selv medvirker til at få stabile og rystefri billeder i kassen.
Pros: God ergonomi, Både til højre- og venstrehåndede.
