Great HD Camera with some fun features
26 August 2012
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: All in all I say that this is my favorite camera as of right now (favorite among the various pistol grip, portable models). If you are unsure of what to buy let me tell you this, it’s better to invest a bit more money and get a valid product rather than be cheap, and later discover that you purchased an inferior model, causing immediate buyers remorse and the constant thought that you lost 200 euro on a useless tinker toy.
Summary: I love Xacti cameras. The gun form is easy to hold. The buttons aren't perfect but the camera is easy enough to point and shoot. Memory card video cameras (rather than tape, dvd or hard disk) are great. Top range Xacti cameras are pocketable and produce superb video quality. This one even produces reasonable quality stills.
