Sanyo VPC-HD1 Digital Media Camera

The World's Smallest and Lightest*1 High-Definition Digital Movie Camera
Compared with conventional high-definition digital cameras, the Xacti HD1 is incredibly compact. The super-slim body, with a volume of around 200 cc and a weight of around 210 g, fits easily in your pocket or purse, so you can take it anywhere. Yet it shoots high-definition MPEG-4 movies at 1280 x 720 pixels and 30 fps. The Xacti HD1 records exceptionally beautiful and detailed high-definition movies in the world’s smallest and lightest shell.

Newly Developed HD Engine Enables High-Definition Recording
In creating a new high-definition engine for rapid image processing, SANYO sought a balance between image quality and processing speed. The Xacti HD1 therefore offers both HD recording and 60 fps recording of TV-sized clips (VGA: 640 x 480 pixels). You have a choice of image-processing methods to bring out the maximum beauty of your subject. The Xacti HD1’s display, meanwhile, is an OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode Display), which provides excellent color reproduction and enables expanded viewing angles. Picture quality is crisp, and fast movements in movie clips are vivid and clear.

Simultaneous 5.1-Megapixel Still and High-Definition Movie Shooting
High-resolution 5.1-megapixel still images can be captured during the shooting of high-definition movies, meaning precious moments can be recorded both in still and video form. Furthermore, key function buttons are situated on the back of the main body. You can use a single thumb for most shooting and playback operations, leaving your other hand free to hold your bag or child, say.

A Docking Station to Enhance Your Enjoyment
The Xacti HD1 can be connected to a TV, VCR, PC or DVD recorder. This means, for example, you can easily play back recorded high-definition images on the stunning wide screen of an HDTV, or make back-up copies of your recorded content on a DVD recorder while you’re playing it back. After placing the Xacti HD1 in its docking station, you can save recorded video clips and still images onto your computer’s hard disk. From there, you can edit them and use them in e-mails or weblogs, for even greater enjoyment.

The Xacti HD1 records high-definition (HD) MPEG-4 movies at 1280 x 720 pixels and 30 fps, giving you far higher-quality imaging than by conventional digital video recording. Recording in the powerful 16:9 widescreen format, the Xacti HD1 captures those unforgettable moments just the way they appear. Yet all this quality comes in an ultra-compact body you can take anywhere (80 x 119 x 36 mm; 210 g, main body only). With the ergonomic Xacti HD1, you have pro-quality imaging at your fingertips.
