Sanyo Xacti VPC WH1

  1. This is enough for HD movies, but then too little for taking pictures.
  2. The optical 30x zoom of the WH1 does not change that, which can not exploit its potential under water anyway.
  3. Fist strap, adjustment possibilities, flashlight and 30x zoom allowed the ambitious filmmaker to shoot black for the Xacti.
  4. Battery life and reversible monitor hinge lift them far.
  5. On, in and also outside the water the performance is missing.
  6. Although most of the colors were still faithfully reproduced and the white balance worked perfectly.
  7. But the picture showed relatively strong image noise and it looked altogether flat – that is, the contrast was less good than in bright light when shooting.
  8. The photosensitivity of the WH1 can be increased, making the images in the actually brighter.
  9. Unfortunately, the image noise increased again with this function.
  10. Although the image quality in sub-water shots due to the relatively low sensitivity to light only average.
  11. Although the compactness of the SDR-SW21 pleased, but technically the Xacti VPC-WH1 is the better model, is the final assessment of the results.
  12. It resolves photos and videos higher and also uses a better compression method (H.264).
  13. In addition, the WH1 offers a flash that the Panasonic owner has to do without.
  14. Very handy is the function of the WH1, with a pure sound recording can be recorded.
  15. This allows the acoustic atmosphere of a turntable to be captured, which is very important for dubbing your own videos.
  16. For this purpose, autofocus and image stabilizer showed slight weaknesses and were neither fast nor particularly reliable.
  17. The editor was quite satisfied with the sound recordings of the SW21.
  18. The Sanyo Xacti VPC-WH1, however, could not always produce the desired image sharpness in the telephoto range.
  19. Colors were muted by him – the more powerful color representation of the Panasonic trumped here.
  20. Fast movements could be the WH1 clearer for this than the SW21.
  21. Underwater, theer found that, especially in the telephoto, hardly any good pictures are possible – neither with one nor with the other device.
  22. So it’s better to use the wide angle position.
  23. In addition, the Panasonic SW21 underwater always took on a mysterious humming.
  24. The soundtrack of underwater films must therefore always be reworked.
  25. For this, the Panasonic shone with its electronic viewfinder: it showed a higher-contrast image, which was better to see especially in the wet element.
  26. However, the more beautiful pictures were clearly provided by the Sanyo Xacti VPC-WH1.
  27. The image converter of the WH1 is a single CMOS sensor that measures 1/6 inch.
  28. It delivers frame rates of 30 or 60 frames per second.
  29. The lens offers a very large 30x optical zoom, but is still quite bright: Sanyo gives f-stops between 1.8 and 4.3.
  30. The shots can be viewed on a 2.5-inch display.
  31. Three meters under the water surfaceThe Sanyo Xacti VPC-WH1 is available in several bright colors: Yellow, Blue and White.
  32. Above all, the yellow variant is reminiscent of the actual purpose of the WH1: It is waterproof to a depth of three meters.
  33. But it is also recommended for whitewater or snowboarding: splashing water or similar is absolutely no danger and the fast frame rates and shutter speeds up to 1 / 10,000 second are well suited to record fast movements smoothly.
