Sanyo Xacti Claims Worlds Smallest 1080p Camcorder

by Paul Strauss

Sanyo has just taken the wraps off their latest compact digital camcorder, and this one’s a real heavy-hitter. The new DMX-HD1000 not only grips nicely in the palm of your hand, it can record movies a stellar 1920 x 1080 video resolution.

The handheld camera works its magic recording full motion video in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. It’s got a nice 10x optical zoom lens, a fold-out 2.7-inch LCD viewfinder, and a clean industrial design that melds form and function nicely. In addition to capturing 1080p video at 60 frames per second, you can shoot 8-megapixel digital still photos too. The only thing working against this camera is storage. Recording full 1080p high definition is a memory hog, so even with an 8GB SDHC memory card, you’ll only store about 85 minutes of video.

It’s initially planned for release in Japan this September, and will retail for about ¥120,000 (appx. $1041 USD.) I’d expect to see these stateside sometime in late 2007 / early 2008.

    The SANYO Xacti HD1000 will be available in the U.S.A. in September, 2007, and has an MSRP of $799.99. ;) No too much waiting :) Will be on Amazon on October 5, 2007

    No this cannot record 60 frames/sec at full 1080 resolution. It can record only 60 FIELDS/second. This is yet another INTERLACED camcorder.

    Also the bandwidth is so limited that any subject motion or worse camera motion results in horrific compression artifacts.

    I must have misread the original specs. It looks like there is full 60 frame per second support at 720p, but not at 1080. Still, the compression artifacts sound awful.
