Excerpt: Sanyo claims that this is the world’s first dual camera available to record at true progressive Full HD. It records to hard drive and has a slow-motion setting that allows you to record at either 240 or 600fps. It has an eight-megapixel sensor for still photography and a 1/2.5 inch CMOS sensor for video, with a 10x optical zoom lens. It measures 90x113x55mm.
Excerpt: Sanyo may not be as popular here in the states as it is in Japan, but the latest high definition model from the Xacti series is as worthy as any mid-range consumer camcorder from the major manufacturers. The Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 offers strong overall video performance, excellent low light sensitivity and color, robust manual controls, and a wide range of still photography options... all for an expected retail price of around $600.
Excerpt: Sanyo's Xacti camcorders were the first to combine video recording with the ability to take stills. It's a happy marriage and one that has logic on its side: if you want to record something for posterity enough to video it, chances are you would also like a photo or two of the occasion. The Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000 is the latest in that line.
