Summary: I just got the camera last night. I've only done a few tests on it. I'll play with it more this weekend. It appears this camera supports iFrame. This is an apple format that equates to 960x540 at 30p. The reduced dimension format actually takes up more space than the max 1080i setting.
Summary: I own 4 computers 2 with dual core processors, the dual cpu means little with the HD files this camera produces, You need tons of RAM. The only time I can watch the files is when I put them in my 8GB DDR3 dual 3.0 core system. I hated the camera until I realized You need HORSEPOWER!
Great Low Light Performance and High Resolution Pictures

Summary: I was looking for a compact HD digital camcorder that also takes good pictures on SD cards so I don't have to carry a camera with me out on trips. After extensive research, I found this Sanyo Xacti VPC-SH1 is the only one in the ~$300.00 price range with large CCD.
Summary: I bought this because of the dual function that can serve digital camera and camcorder functions. This is convenient. Pic quality together with video is great. This camcorder claims to be capable of taking pic during video recording, it's true but the pic quality would not be as good as when pic...
Summary: I bought this camera over the FH1A because of the 10 mp still shots and the improved zoom. THE ZOOM IS AMAZING!! Its like looking through binoculars. you do need a tripod to zoom with out it wobbling like crazy though. all and all this is a very good camera. Things that are good...
Summary: I bought this because we wanted a dedicated video camera instead of using the video function on our digital camera. The things that drew me to this: * Low price * HD quality video (though only 1080i I think, not 1080p) * Small size * Still camera function * Big optical zoom How did it live up?
Summary: Bought this over a year ago, for the price it gives you great video and features. Cant go wrong. Price a little higher then what i payed last year. But well worth the price now. I bought mine used and it came in like new condition...
Summary: As a begining home videographer this is a great camera. Records in true 1080i. We took it to disneyland and when it came time to ride rides, it fit in my jeans pocket no problem. Some of the other reviews had problems with the microphone. I think it works fine, i had no problems hearing anything.
