Sanyo Xacti VPC HD1000

  1. Both functions, video and photo, have corresponding weaknesses.
  2. The handling is consistently logical – the menu knows? to convince.
  3. The data problem is cleverly countered by outsourcing to HDD.
  4. Sanyo takes the VPC-HD1000 a giant step forward, even if it can not keep up with the overall impression with cameras like the A40F.
  5. However, it is hard to beat as a small, beach-worthy video-photo combo.
  6. The two microphone capsules of the Sanyo are mounted on the back of the display, have a strong tendency to rustle and record quite a nasal sound.
  7. I have Sanyo after the rather moderate short-term Schonwetter camera HD1 (which I used for 1.5 years) still given a chance and was not disappointed with the HD1000: Video quality: On my 20 inch Samsung 206BW TFT see the videos razor sharp off, the colors are natural, the white balance works reliably.
  8. Photo Quality: 4MP photos are more than enough for a full-screen view on my screen, for 10×15 size slides anyway.
  9. I used my old photo Pentax Optio S4 to print a 2MP photo on 4 sheets of A4 paper stretched out as a poster, and even then it looked crisp and sharp at a distance of 2 meters.
  10. Due to the 10x optical zoom, enlargements on the PC are also not necessary.
  11. However, bright contrasts sometimes produce light blue fringing; But I do not feel that this is annoying because you only see it in the 1: 1 view.
  12. Low-light quality: One of the great strengths of the HD1000 is its lens, which offers a sensational light output of 1.8 (WW 38mm small picture) – 2.5 (T 380mm small picture).
  13. As a, I only tried to shoot at street lights during the night, and even on this one can still see something.
  14. Overall, I have the impression that the camera can record as you really see, even WITHOUT? you go into lowlight mode with 15 bps.
  15. The bombastic lens allows for a long time photos without flash, where other photos must already flash.
  16. Autofocus: Autofocus works reliably down to room lighting, albeit slowly responding to sharp changes.
  17. I feel that rather as an advantage, as hectic “pumps” omitted.
  18. With “bar atmosphere” the autofocus also sharpens, only it takes a little longer, or
  19. Overall, it is considered to be reliable and predictable.
  20. Battery life: An example: The battery was on a New Year’s Eve party enough for 140 flash photos, about
  21. Speed: The autofocus works quite fast in photo mode, so far I have not missed a motif after more than 1500 photos.
  22. A big advantage is the standby mode: If you close the screen with the camera turned on, it consumes almost no power.
  23. It takes no longer to activate than it takes to unfold the screen.
  24. Image stabilizer: Since the Stabi works only electronically, it delivers great results only up to 4x zoom right off the bat.
  25. From 4x to 7x zoom you need a steady hand to avoid blurring, and from 7x zoom it often hails “freaking out”, as the stabilizer often reaches its “correction limit”.
  26. Even at an open-air concert, I was able to take good pictures.
  27. In addition, you can connect an external micro (2.5mm or 3.5mm jack and headphone 3.5mm jack).
  28. No drive noise, as no moving parts are installed.
  29. Handling / Processing: The ergonomic pistol shape I get no cramps o.a.
  30. The camera responds without delay to any input.
  31. The zoom switch should be more subtle at “start” (but zooming should not happen in good videos anyway ;-)).
  32. Shutter, aperture, white balance, distance measurement, exposure metering), you can still record well in difficult situations.
  33. A passive hot shoe allows the installation of external microphones / flashes / video lights.
  34. Camera I can not understand what the processing concerns.
  35. After all, a Porsche is not a bad car, just because you can not drive on cobblestones 280 km / h.
  36. Pinnacle Studio 11 Ultimate imports the 720p 30/60 clips without problems (1080i is indeed not).
  37. The real-time editing is no problem on my Core2Duo E6600 2×2,4 GHz with 3GB DDR2 RAM and Geforce 8800GTS320.
  38. Alpha blending transitions, two video tracks or color corrections allow for fluid editing.
  39. Only the anyway superfluous 3D transitions force the PC to its knees.
  40. I hope, my honest, partly critical report will help you with the purchase decision.
  41. The sound recordings are surprisingly good, but the Sanyo can be upgraded with an external microphone, which can even be controlled manually.
  42. The sound is controlled by a headphone, for which there is also a socket.
  43. With the HD1000, Sanyo has introduced the current flagship of the current product range.
  44. Whether in this class, the image quality can be measured with other Full HD cameras?
  45. Sanyo, however, for the first time combines extremely compact dimensions with full HD resolution.
