Has Sanyo made the most desirable camcorder to date...?
Strange as it might seem the answer appears to be Yes. Say goodbye to its previous Volvo-inspired efforts and say hello to the Xacti 'DMX-HD1000' - the world's smallest Full HD capable camcorder.
Measuring just 112 x 90 x 54mm and weighing a feathery 311g (including battery), the HD1000 certainly makes a stunning entrance then improves it further with a large 2.7in fold away LCD, the ability to shoot 8MP stills, a 10x optical zoom and HDMI-out. *Swoon*
Could we be any happier? Perhaps if it took SD & SDHC cards and could record directly to them in a space saving modern format... well, it does and Mpeg4 is its wise choice meaning an 8GB SDHC card will hold up to 85 minutes of Full HD (1920 x 1080) footage.
Even the battery life is good for two full hours of continuous recording.
Could there be a final cherry on the top? How about a September launch and an anticipated $1,000 RRP...
Yep, I'm smitten and she's beautiful. Now avert your retched eyes - you don't deserve to look at her.
