Great HD Camera with some fun features

  • Summary: When I first saw this little camera I thought it quite different. The pistol grip design was something I wasn't used to but after a while I got used to it and actually have found it quite comfortable. The HD settings for this camera, and the quality of video was very high. That is one of the reasons I got this camera. It's size is also very nice because it is easy to hide away or pull out without taking up much space.

  • Summary: nice camera for the price. I've had it a while now. Translates well with mac. Only thing is there is no light- the flash works for still pictures, but if you need light for night time video you are SOL.

Nice Camera, used for skiing

Andy, Amazon

  • Summary: Before I bought this camera I checked a few reviews. Surprised to see everyone loves the camera, but many complaints about complicated menus and that its too technical to use. My Summary is that they are retards - a 2yr old could figure out the camera. I still haven't needed to look at the manual yet, the menus are completely straight forward and i was able to find everything I looked for right away.

HD video at a cheap price

Peter Allen, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: When the Sanyo HD2000 came out it was ground breaking - a consumer level camera that produced 1080P /60 at a fraction of the price of the major brands. Plus it had some nifty extras such as 240fps and 600 fps recording ( although at a lower resolution. all in a form factor that challenged the established camcorder format. its nearly two years on and how does the HD2000a stack up?

Fantastic camera for the price

TheMartialOne, Amazon

  • Summary: I read a LOT of camera reviews before I finally decided to purchase this camera (and that is no exaggeration - I spent weeks reading dozens of reviews about dozens of cameras to be sure I was making a wise purchase). I'm no camera expert, wouldn't claim to be, but I researched enough to know what I was looking for in a camera.

Love this product

Jason B. Day, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for my wife and so far she loves it. The one item we really both agree is lacking is the lens cover, even though it is trivial the cover pops off very easy. We have shot lots of videos and they are great. We have taken still photos and they look good on the tv but we have not printed any out yet. My wife is very electro nically challenged and thinks this video camera is very easy to use.

A Jack of all trades

  • Summary: It is a solid performer. Photo lag seem excessive at times. Color rendering is good. Love the way it works with my Mac. Hard to keep steady since it is so light. There are some good do-it-yourself steady cams that should help. (in process of making mine) Video quality (when camera is still) is good. Does what I need it to do in one small package.

so far so good

  • Summary: I have been using this to record my sons basketball games. I purchased this with the hope it would work seamlessly with my imac and imovie. I was disappointed in the fact that imovie would not recognize the camcorder. I got a card reader and this solved the problem. I have only recorded in the iframe mode 30 fps and I am happy with ease of edit and results. I do recommend using a mono pod or tripod to eliminate shake.

Convenient camera with some small drawbacks

M. Skoda, Amazon
19 December 2009
  • Summary: Overall, I am very happy with this camera. If you own a Mac, this is the camera to get because of the iFrame option. All you have to do is import the video into iMovie or Final Cut, and start editing! No waiting for the video to be transcoded, because the camera shoots in the same video format that the programs use. Transcoding is the reason that most people, (including me), never get around to editing their video on computers.

Hot off the Boat, The New Xacti With iFrame Format Recording

Budget Producer, Amazon
17 November 2009
  • Summary: I received the unit and have been testing it out in various shooting settings and resolutions. Right away I really appreciated the .mp4 format of the recordings and the simplicity of working with the files (on a Mac w/iMovie9). Honestly, on a fast mac, working with any of the size/formats the camera records seems to be quick and easy. I'm a little disappointed that the iFrame format doesn't turn out to be a big of a deal as I thought it would be.
