The Sanyo HD1010 Xacti digital media camera with 10x optical zoom is a high-definition compact digital media device that combines both the functionality of a digital camera and a digital camcorder.

Sanyo Xacti HD1010 Highlights
10x optical HD lens At the front of the HD1010 is a commanding 10x all-glass HD lens. The HD1010’s fast f/1.8 lens is capable of allowing almost four times more light through to assist in lower light venues. Consisting of eight groups and eleven total lenses with a built-in neutral density filter, the HD1010's lens provides a fantastic field-of-view with a 38-380 mm range (35 mm equivalent). Combined with the 10x digital zoom, the HD1010 provides up to 100x total zooming capability.
Large 2.7-inch wide screen display The Xacti HD1010 features a large 2.7-inch widescreen Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions, especially useful when shooting in large crowds or in small rooms.
HDMI high-definition output It’s easy to share your high-definition movies on your HD television with the HD1010. Using the HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) terminal built into the base station, just one cable (cable not included) connects your camcorder to your TV for a totally digital output. HDMI carries both the video and audio signals in digital form for the highest quality playback.
Convenient SD/SDHC memory card The Sanyo Xacti HD1010 records high-definition and photos directly to a standard SD or SDHC Memory Card. In fact, the HD1010 is capable of recording up to 1 hour and 27 minutes 1080P (30fps) video on a single 8GB SDHC card or 1 hour and 14 minutes of 1080i (60fps) high-definition video on a single 8GB SDHC card (card sold separately). The HD1010 is compatible with SD Memory Cards up to a 32GB. The SD memory card’s compact size (0.94W x 1.26H x 0.08D inches) and weight (about 2 grams) makes it ideal for the compact size of the HD1010. The minimal power requirements of the SD card also contribute to longer recording and playback times. When connected to the computer via the USB cable, the HD1000 acts as a standard card reader. Transferring images and videos to your computer has never been easier.
Image stabilization High-definition can't hide shaky or erratic camera shaking. That's why Sanyo's HD1010 comes with a sophisticated image stabilizer for both stills and video. Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the HD1010 compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement during video shooting, keeping your subject steady and easy to follow. It accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement. This handy feature operates in both wide-angle and telephoto modes, giving every shot a solid, professional-looking feel.
Random access Each video is recorded as an individual MPEG-4 and each still as a JPEG file. This allows you to review a specific image or video quickly and easily, without having to rewind or fast forward.
Adjustable resolution modes Choose from eight different video resolution modes and eight different still photo resolution levels depending on how your images will be used.
Robust sound recording Record 48 kHz, 16-bit, 2-channel sound for AAC-LC (MPEG-4 Audio). Incredible high quality audio is the perfect match for the stunning high-definition videos. The Xacti HD1010 also features a dedicated terminal to which an external microphone can be attached.
Organization and in-camera editing With the Sanyo Xacti HD1010’s 9-image display function, users can quickly search for specific images or videos. And, with the slideshow feature, images can be played back continuously. The HD1010 allows users to edit clips right in the camera. Unwanted images can also be easily deleted, freeing up memory card capacity.
Super-fast startup With the tapeless design, the HD1010 eliminates the need to queue up a tape deck or get a DVD or hard drive spinning. When the HD1010 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts the HD1000 in standby mode. Simply open the display and the HD1000 automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as two seconds.
Manual controls The HD1010 features versatile manual controls for advanced shooting. The following settings can be manually adjusted according to the shooting situation: Manual focus adjustment (16 settings); aperture adjustment (6 stops); exposure compensation (1.8 EV, 0.3 EV steps); shutter speed (13 settings); and image-quality adjustment (for sharpness and color saturation).
Easy HD playback The Xacti HD1010 enables easy playback of recorded high-definition images directly on a TV screen. Connect the HD1010 to a VCR or DVD recorder to back-up copies of recorded content. Still images and video clips on the Xacti HD1010 are played back continuously and in chronological order. Along with MPEG-4 digital recording, the Xacti HD1010 offers convenient connection to a PC. With simple drag-and-drop operation, it's easy to save recorded video clips and still images onto a computer's hard disk for emailing, editing or archiving. The HD1010 also comes with a remote controller to operate the camera at a distance during playback.

There is a built in hot shoe for accessories such as an external lapel mic or external light.
It is a small camera so it can be tricky keeping it steady. I recommend a tripod or monopod if you need stability with your video.
I usually downscale the video to a TV quality since I like to edit my video in post production with Premiere Pro. The HD quality is beyond my computer's ability, but it is nice having that potential.
I recommend this camera to anyone that wants a fully featured, sturdy, hand-held, multi-purposed camera for under $700 bucks. I really like this camera and have been using it for about 1 year now. I take it to concerts, shows and even use it for work interviews.
intuitive menu system
REALLY good screen
4MP digital camera
full HD camcorder
can take still pictures while making a movie (I love this feature!!!)
the WOW factor, because every-time I pull it out to use everyone around me goes WOW, what kind of camera is that. no one believes me its a HD camcorder!
so light and small it can fit in your car/purse/back-pocket/pez dispenser.
price - for me this wasnt a issue. I was able to replace my camera and add a HD camcorder for a reasonable amount.
grip - I would like to have seen the grip area be a bit larger. I have found a way to make it ft nicely in my hand, but if the grip was either larger or came with, say, a plastic extender maybe that you could put on the bottom it would be great. I have put the camera in 6 different peoples hands and they all said it felt nice after holding it for a few minutes. You just have to find a way that it is comfy for your hand size.
screen rotation - the one and only thing , if I were the designers of the HD1010 that I would change (and now you'll see how nitpicky I am being). If the viewing screen would rotate to the front I could hold the camera in front of me, look at the screen and know I'm in focus / in the shot, and make a quickie recording. Sort of a looking at the camera, blair witch kinda shot. It only rotates to the top and bottom, not to the front. just a wishlist thing. thats the absolute worst thing about the camera so far.
Comparing it to all of the complaints of the HD1000, I can say everything that was complained about in the HD1000 has been fixed. Sanyo even admitted that this is not supposed to be a whole new model, only a upgrade to the HD1000. By that I mean all of the autofocus issues I read about with the HD1000 have been resolved. as a matter of fact I couldnt MAKE it have a focusing problem. I've tried low light, bright light, moving subjects, even the fan in my living room. everything focused perfectly.
The camera takes great pictures also. They turned out better than any digital camera I have ever used, albeit I have always used more of the personal point and shoot olympus / nikon type. Dark rooms, outdoors, inside with fluorescent bulbs, you name it the pictures have been better than what I expected.
Like I said, I have had 6 other people try using it, from my girlfriend with really small hands to a guy I work with who is 6'7" and has Andre the giant hands and they have all loved it. I have not told anyone how to use it. Just handed it to them and said 'I just got a new camera, try it out and see what you think.' With no instructions everyone has taken both movies, pictures, and had smiles while doing it. Its rare to find something electronic that anyone can use with no instructions given and the HD1010 is something you can use straight out of the box. It really is fun to use.
bottom line, if you are looking at getting a camcorder, this one deserves a close look. I am very picky when it comes to electronics, and I am amazed at what they have done with this camcorder/camera. Everything I expected when I ordered it has been greatly exceeded. Great camera, ease of use, quality of the product overall, and in the end quality of the movies it makes... you cant go wrong.
thanks to everyone who mentioned you can rotate the lens to the front. I was wrong about that, you can! well, that pretty much zero's out the thing I wanted them to change so, my new complaint is that it doesnt come with Kevin Smith to make better movies with it :)
I love this camera and highly recommend it to anyone that wants a quality HD camcorder and a quality 4 MP still camera (up to 8 MP actually) all-in-one. I buy a new digital camera every year because quite frankly none of them have everything that I wanted in one camera. I have the Flip Camera (which I did like and did recommend in its day), Aiptek A-HD, etc. Now that I have the Sanyo HD1010, my camera shopping days are over.
Here is what I love about the Sanyo HD1010:
-HD resolution with 8 different resolutions and frames/fields per second to select from including the super fun high speed mode of 300 fps.
-Quality still camera with several resolutions to select from up to 8 MP. You can also select widescreen modes.
-Ability to seamlessly snap pictures while recording video.
-Great video quality.
-Great audio quality.
-Ability to edit (cut/join) video clips within the camera.
-Big viewing screen that rotates over 270 degrees.
-Easy to understand buttons and ability to assign defined commands of your choosing to the toggle button.
-Understandable menus that drive some very deep functionality and control.
-Or you can just use auto mode to take great pictures and video.
-The lens is beautiful - 10X Optical Zoom
-External Microphone input
-Uses SD or SDHC cards
-The native video format (.mp4) is compatible with my LG Blu-ray player so I can just pull the card, put it in a reader, and plug it into my blu-ray player to watch the clips (edited or unedited).
-HDMI output on the docking station
-Battery Life has been as advertised
-Docking station is one of the best that I have ever experienced
-and on and on, this camera is the best I have owned with no compromise on video over stills or vice versa.
On the downside:
-the camera is a little bulky for its small size and won't fit into a shirt or pants pocket.
-image stabilization is a little shaky especially at high zoom (which is typical for most cameras), so I carry a small tripod with me to help anchor the camera against my chest while I shoot.
I hope this review helps you.

I also bought a UV filter to protect the lenses so I don't have to use the lens cap.
