Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2 Review

Digitaltrends
20 July 2007
  • Conclusion: The search for a really good two-in-one imaging device continues. The VPC-HD2 is not the Holy Grail, not even a Monty Python version of it. In fact I suggest you pick it up at the store, marvel at its small size then put it back down.

  • Excerpt: After I reviewed the Canon PowerShot TX1, I received several requests to review the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2 ($699 list price). Now, I've never used a Sanyo camera before, but I was game for trying the HD2, since it sounded pretty interesting -- at least on the surface.
  • Pros: Good photo quality when ISO is kept to minimum, 10X optical zoom lens, Flip-out, rotating 2.2" LCD, Top-notch movie mode: high definition 720p resolution with stereo sound, wind filter, and use of optical zoom; can take a still photo while recording a movie, Full manual controls, Three forms of v...
  • Cons: Expensive, Poor ergonomics: cramped buttons, lousy four-way controller, and difficult portrait shooting, Noise reduction smudges details, even at ISO 50; images are soft compared to other ultra zooms, No optical image stabilization, Overall sluggish performance; slow focusing, some shutter lag, L...

  • Conclusion: Although it's still chasing the competition, this tiny HD camcorder offers decent video capturing and still-image capabilities, all in one handy package.
  • Pros: Compact. Good color. Very good digital still images. Very portable.
  • Cons: Video quality could be better. Last year's nice OLED screen not on this year's model. Shutter lag evident in still shots. No optical-image stabilization.

  • Excerpt: Camcorders are getting smaller and better, though not exactly in that order. What's more, they're getting a lot better at taking still pictures too – Viva la convergence!

  • Conclusion: Sanyo heeft goed geschoten met deze HD2. Tenminste, voor zover het zijn fotografische kwaliteiten betreft. Zijn beeldkwaliteit is goed, zij het dat hij een beetje ruis vertoont, maar het is dan ook een combicamera. Hij vertoont geen paarse randen of purple fringing en dat is mooi.
  • Pros: kleurschifting
  • Cons: ergonomie als fotocamera, ruis

  • Summary: Эта миниатюрная записывающая видеокамера высокой четкости, хотя и не оторвалась от конкурентов, обеспечивает вполне приличное качество видеозаписи и фотосъемки – все в одном корпусе.
  • Pros: Компактность. Хорошая цветопередача. Высокое качество цифровых фотографий. Портативность.
  • Cons: Качество видео оставляет жалеть лучшего. Не применяется весьма удачный экран на органических светодиодах предыдущей модели. Заметная задержка срабатывания затвора при фотосъемке. Нет оптической системы стабилизации изображения.

Eerste indruk: Sanyo Xacti HD2

  • Excerpt: Van de week op de redactie gearriveerd: de Sanyo Xacti HD2 . 's Werelds kleinste en lichtste high definition (720p) camcorder. Zijn voorganger, de HD1, hebben we al eens uitgebreid uitgepakt . Daarvan bleek de beeldstabilisator te zwak te zijn om enigszins acceptabele video's mee te maken.
