Sanyo Xacti Claims Worlds Smallest 1080p Camcorder

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.
