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.

I wish there was a built-in LED camera light for low light filming, as in very low light the camera is a bit grainy, but overall, for most applications, this is the camera to buy for the price. I purchased for 350USD a few weeks ago and have been happy with the performance in most applications. The still camera isn't bad either. 4MP with flash and red eye reduction makes this an easy camera to take with you almost anywhere. Don't compare this camera with a higher end HD camcorder. Think of it as the equivalence of a point and shoot camera compared to a DSLR camera. You sacrifice some features and quality for portability, but for the price and most uses, this camera offers a lot of bang for the buck. 1080P recording at 30FPS, 720P @60 FPS or a few other options such as 300FPS slo mo mode at less than VGA res makes this camera a mainstream memory maker at a great price.
If you're willing to accept the shortcomings, for the price this camera will impress you with it's features and versatility.
***UPDATE 18 OCT 2009***
Upon using this camera there are two annoyances.
I'm a tall guy and have very large hands. I end up holding his camera with one finger tucked under the base just to make my hands fit.
Also, it's hard for me to get a smooth, slow zoom with the thumb control zoom. I much prefer an index finger actuated zoom control.
All that aside, still a great camera.
i did a lot of filming while walking and the vids were jiggly...so...when i wanted to see something specifically...i'd stop walking and shoot still...this worked great as i'll be able to edit out a lot of the boring walking parts... while filming in the car...the vids came out much much more stable. i did use the still pic mode too...they turned out great...
the nero that came with the cam is out of date...but...i was lucky that nero 8 came out with a $[...] buck rebate...so...it cost me $[...] bucks to upgrade...i believe nero 9 is out now... i also have a new laptop and it has all the right stuff for hd playback... quicktime doesn't work...it distorts the vids...
so...i highly recommend the xacti hd1010...bon voyage...
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.
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.
