Sorry to Say It, But it is Awful

Gadget Man "Gadget Man", Amazon

  • Summary: On paper, the Xacti HD looks great. The ability to take Video and Photos. Videos are HD quality and use MPEG-4 compression. Videos and photos are stored on standard SD cards, which is very handy. The dual camera is fairly compact. What's not to like... I don't know if this unit was defective, or if this is the way all of them are. But videos and photos are awful. The videos lack sharpness, are full of compression artifacts, and look smudgy.

Waste of money!!!!!

  • Summary: I bought this thing for the price and the fact that it was HD. You need to remember that just because something shoots in 720p doesn't mean it shoots a good image. The only way I was able to get a decent picture out of this thing was to shoot outside in bright light and even then the image wasn't as good as my old mini-dv recorder. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

We were looking forward to it. Now it's in the junk drawer.

  • Summary: I came away very disappointed in this Camcorder. In fact, I've put it away and gone back to my Canon Powershot. 1. It is horrible in low light conditions, with massive discoloration and noise. Low light means anything that isn't 100% sun. It's simply not usable indoors, even what you would consider to be bright. 2. The camcorder has problems keeping focus on moving targets, for example children playing sports. 3. Part of the included software can not be uninstalled.

Low video quality and inferior overall performance

  • Summary: I needed a replacement for my seven-year old MiniDV camcorder and this one seemed a good deal. At the store it looked very impressive and the specs were decent. I've had the camcorder for about 10 days and have tried every possible setting and feature available. I believe I can review the camcorder properly now. The pros: + Nice overall design, fits comfortably in the hand, the controls are well placed and easy to access. Every control can be accessed with one hand only.

Simply horrible

  • Summary: I had such high hopes for this camcorder. I prefer this orientation of camera over the more common pistol grip many cheaper camcorders seem to be heading towards. But as soon as I powered this camera on, I was ready to return it... The video quality was horrible. Compared to my $100 Jazz HDV178, the Sanyo captured absolutely no detail. Everything appeared grainy and out of focus.

Enteuschung

  • Summary: Bin absolut entäuscht von Produkt. Meine 6 Jahre alte Hi8 Sony Kamera macht genauso gute Viedeoaufnahmen und hat wesentlich bessere Optik. Foto von Sanyo ist unbrauchbar. Note:ungenügend.
