Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD700 review

 

Sensationally inexpensive, this cam aims to usher in the era of HD for all

Head-turning price ; Plenty of features ; Great image quality

Sluggish autofocus ; Fiddly controls

Cheap it may be, but the VPC-HD700 is far from the performer we’d hope it would be. Low light and movement cause all manner of problems. Even for the less demanding audience it’s aimed at, this is likely to still be not quite good enough.

in its cost (around £50), because no storage is included in the box

Shooting made simple. Refreshing design and good picture quality for both video and stills.

Sanyo Xacti HD700 review

 

Why take a camcorder and stills camera on holiday when you can buy a hybrid product such as those in Sanyo's Xacti range? Seemingly perfect for that weekend break, the pistol-like Sanyo Xacti HD700's blurb boasts of High Definition images, yet in truth...

Lightweight and easy to use, the Sanyo Xacti HD700 looks impressive but with plastic buttons and controls its pricing feels high. Especially when you can get a good quality camcorder for around £300, and a 7Mp stills camera for £100. Ultimately, it's...

HTC S740 Review

 

I would be really impressed if HTC could bring out a derivative without the keyboard, a la diamond, that would be good in my opinion.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD700

 

Now that the high-definition format war is finally coming to an end, with Blu-ray appearing to have beaten HD DVD into submission, high-def movies are far more likely to grow in popularity

Head-turning price, Plenty of features, Great image quality

Fiddly controls, Sluggish autofocus

Cheap it may be, but the VPC-HD700 is far from the performer we'd hope it would be. Low light and movement cause all manner of problems. Even for the less demanding audience it's aimed at, this is likely to still be not quite good enough

Sanyo Xacti HD700 review

 

The pistol-like Sanyo Xacti HD700's blurb boasts of High Definition images, yet in truth its 30-frames-per-second (fps), 720p video resolution is more HD-ready than full HD (look to the more expensive HD1000 for that).

Lightweight and easy to use, the Sanyo Xacti HD700 looks impressive but with plastic buttons and controls its pricing feels high. Especially when you can get a good quality camcorder for around £300, and a 7Mp stills camera for £100. Ultimately, it's...

Sanyo Xacti HD700 [Mac]

 

Whether you're in the market for a new camcorder for that trip of a lifetime or are a newcomer thinking of getting into video blogging, there's plenty of choice when it comes to how (and in which format) you record your home movies.

Camera Review: Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD700

 

If you're in the market for a pocket-sized HD camcorder, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD700 ($429, street) should place near the top of your list. The digital video camera, which Sanyo touts for both its 720p HD video capture and 7.1-megapixel still...

Sanyo VPC-HD700

 

High resolution stills and laudable quality for the money, but image stabilisation isn't the best

The design also makes the Sanyo one of the smaller models on test in this Labs – the HD700 can even be squeezed into a jeans pocket, a rather painful feat if attempted with the bulky Canon HG10
