I don’t normally post about HD camcorders but the new Sanyo Xacti HD1010 1080p camcorder just look too good to not write about. I would assume most HDTV owners to some respect are interested in recording their own HD footage. The new Xacti HD1010 builds on Sanyo’s very impressive Xacti HD1010, but adding a number of features and bug fixes. This premium HD camcorder records in the best HD format available, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264.
There are a number of recording options available, including the king Full HD 1080p (1920x1080p) resolution (high 12Mbps), along with 1080i (60) and lower resolutions. A new feature on the Sanyo Xacti HD1010 camcorder is a very impressive 300fps mode for catching slow motion. An impressive 10x zoom with image stabilization is also featured along with face detection, keeping the shots in focus and shake free.
There is support for upto 32GB SDHC cards for long recording, along with HDD control for connecting to an external HDD for backups. The LCD is 2.7 inches. The Sanyo HD1010 can also shoot still images at 7fps at a 4 megapixel resolution.
Connecting to an HDTV is very easy via the HDMI cable, delivering HD images and sound. PC connection via a USB 2.0 is also supported.
Expect to see the Sanyo Xacti HD1010 in July for around $799.
