Dropping other new models like a hot potato!

I read through them quickly and one says it supports "Standard Definition", which to them is 640 x 480. I was hoping their "SD" would be 720 x 480 (D1). DARN!

The new traditional camcorder models look interesting because of their battery life, which they quote as well over 3 hours! The problem with the pistol grip models is that they barely have an hour of battery life in the real world. A 3 hour battery life would mean you could shoot most events comfortably with one battery.

I look forward to some reviews and video samples from these guys. It will be interesting how the CG10 which is an 'official' Sanyo model compares with the HD100 as they are both at the same price of $199. The main difference of course is that the HD100 is a 1080p model and the CG10 is just 720p.

The 1080p at a full 60 frames per second should look quite good.

Woow! Great news. Looking forward to see video samples. It seems Sanyo is calling them "Dual Cameras".

Here are some pics:

The top models.


The waterproof models.


The compact and slim model.


And the VPC-TH1


Finally Sanyo stepped up and raised the resolution on their SD waterproff cameras to 720p. They call it "Standard HD". Their higher end model does "Full HD" which obviously is 1920x1080.

Very nice cameras! My concern would be how powerful a computer you'd need to edit the higher quality video from them.

Like the older Xacti's, none of them have MP3. And none of them say anything about having illumination for videos. Seems like the Xacti range has switched from ccd to cmos. Not sure this is a good thing.

I came across this basic review of the HD2000 but they seem to be merely viewing the still image feature and don't test the video which is a bit pointless really as no one is going to buy this as a digital camera first.

I Can't believe the 550 pounds price tag.

that is over $1,000 US dollars.

Come on in this soft economy that is too high of a price.

This camcorder will sell much better at a $799.00 US Dollar price.
