Summary: I am not an expert at video recorders- this is the first one I have used in years. I have had the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 camera for a few weeks, however, and have really put it through the paces, so perhaps my experience will be helpful. General appearance and construction: I was pleased with the look and feel of the camera. The hinges all appear solid and well made.
Summary: If you are considering the Flip Video Mino HD or any other $200 range HD camera, spend the extra $60 and get this. It has much better features and video quality but don't expect to put this in your pocket. It's video quality won't be on par with high end cams but great for the price. You are better off getting a less than perfect video quality HD camera than a non HD cam for the same price.
Summary: I just got this camera from Amazon yesterday. I was looking for a camcorder that had a couple of features in particular: HD (at least 720p), HDMI output, some sort of decent optical zoom, some sort of memory card capability, and a reasonable price. The Sanyo VCP-TH1 fit the mold. It was also VERY important to me to get a camera that recorded files compatible with my MacBook and iMovie 08.
Summary: I was given this camcorder as a gift because I am known for loving to take photos and videos of my kids, grandchildren and pets. I have to say that I absolutely love this little camcorder! First of all, its size and weight make it very convenient to keep in my handbag (at all times) for those special moments.
Summary: L'ho ordinanto il 12/11/2009, pagato con bonifico è arrivato il 20/11/2009. tutto perfetto, è quello che mi aspettavo, una videocamera semplice, da portare sempre dietro, buono lo zoom e le riprese di giorno o in ambienti bene illuminati, un pò meno se scarsamente illuminati. Con questa cifra che si può pretendere?, è anche HD e dispone di uscita HDMI.
