Sanyo Xacti HD1 Digital Camera
Making its debut at the CES 2006, the Sanyo Xacti HD1 is the world's first high-definition compact digital media camera (among commercially available high-definition media cameras, as of January 2006). Offering advanced, next-generation video performance, the Sanyo HD1 is the world's smallest and lightest high-definition digital media camera, ideal for recording today with the future in mind. Sanyo, the world's leading manufacturer of digital cameras and components, designed the Sanyo Xacti VPC HD1 to easily record both 720p high-definition video and 5.1 Megapixel digital still images to a standard SD flash memory card. The Sanyo Xacti HD1 will be available in the U.S. in late March at an MSRP of $799.99.
Sanyo Xacti HD1 Digital Camera
Sanyo Xacti HD1 - The Sanyo Xacti HD1 features an ultra-clear 2.2-inch Sanyo-developed OLED display with 210,000 total pixels for exceptional viewability. The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on axis for taking great video or still images in otherwise difficult locations. Trademark features of OLED display technology are expanded viewing angles and up to 5,000 times faster response speed when compared with conventional display technologies, enabling smooth playback of rapid movements. Key to the Sanyo HD1's ability to record high-definition video is its high-precision LSI (large-scale integration) for image processing. This powerful "high-definition engine" executes a vast number of calculations in a short period of time. It enables the HD1 to realize image processing functions such as high-definition 720p processing, real-time MPEG-4 compression and noise reduction.
Sanyo Xacti HD1 digital camera - Displayed prominently in the front of the Sanyo Xacti HD1 is a bright, highly efficient 10x optical zoom lens. Built from 12 elements designed in 9 groups and with a built-in neutral density filter, the 10x zoom lens has a maximum aperture of f/3.5 in both wide and telephoto angles, allowing for clear images in lower light situations. Combined with a 10x digital zoom capability, the Sanyo HD1 is capable of a total 100x zoom.
Sanyo Xacti - As with all previous Sanyo Xacti digital media cameras, the HD1 can record still images in addition to video clips. A newly developed 5.36 Megapixel (total) CCD captures beautiful 5.1 Megapixel still images which are recorded directly onto a standard SD memory card. The camera can record both 5.1 Megapixel still images and high-definition (1280 x 720-pixel) digital video at the same time with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a video clip (depending on the mode used to take still images, simultaneous video clip shooting may be interrupted).
Sanyo Xacti HD1 Secure Digital card - The Sanyo HD1 can record over 21 minutes of 720p HD video on a 1 Gigabyte SD card or over 42 minutes on a 2 Gigabyte card. Alternatively, HD1 users can select to record in Standard Definition mode (640 x 480 pixels at 30fps progressive) for up to two hours on a 2GB Secure Digital card. Users can easily switch between high-definition and standard-definition recording modes by simply pressing the "HD/Norm" button located on display side of the camera body. SD cards sold separately. An ergonomic, one-handed grip and convenient, thumb-operable controls makes the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1 exceptionally easy to use whenever inspiration strikes. Lightweight at only 8.3 ounces (including battery and a standard SD memory card), the Sanyo Xacti HD1 measures 3.1" W x 4.7" H x 1.4" D.
