Sanyo has recently brought a new level of credability

to dual use, video and still image cameras with the

introduction of the new Xacti HD1. With measurements

of 3.1X4, 7X1.4 inches and 8.3 ounces, it is easily

the smallest camera to record 720p high definition

video. It will also capture 5.1 MP still images and

has a 10X optical zoom lens as well.

Just like other dual use cameras, it will record

both video and still images on a memory card, or

in this case an SD card instead of video tape.

According to Sanyo, a 1GB SD card can record up to

21 minutes of 720p 16:9 widescreen video. If you

prefer to record in standard definition, the HD1

can also record video at 640X480 pixel resolution

at either 30 or 60 frames per second. Everything

you record is with the popular MPEG 4 compression.

Just in case pocket sized HD recording isn’t enough

for you, Sanyo also put a 2.2 inch 210,000 pixel

OLED display in the HD1. The OLED is a display

technology that many thing will end up replacing

LCD very soon. The advantages offered include wider

viewing angles and faster response time.

As you probably already know, Sanyo isn’t new to

HD video cameras or digital cameras in general.

Sanyo has been around for years, proving that they

can compete with the bigger industry giants. The

small HD video cameras offered from Sanyo are

among the best as well.

If you’ve been looking for the best HD video cameras,

rest assured that anything you select from Sanyo

is going to be great. There are a few to choose

from, with the HD1 leading the pack. If you want

the best, the HD1 is everything you need – and

quite possibly a bit more.
