Sanyo Makes World’s Smallest/Sexiest 1080p Camcorder

She's MINE!

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.
