Amazon is selling the Xacti HD700 for $299, 50% off retail price. The compact HD camcorder captures 720p HD videos. It takes decent pictures but did terrible in low light environment. It records directly to an SD (SDHC) card and sports HDMI output. We recently purchased one for $349 during the black Friday from Amazon.com, but now Amazon.com is lowering the price even more. It's a decent HD camcorder, especially this compact; we are getting another one!
This nifty little digital camcorder has an amazingly small size and a form factor perfect for holding in your hand. It’s so small in fact, that it’s the world’s smallest 720p HD movie camera. The geniuses at Sanyo even threw in a quick standby mode that allows the camera to go from standby to filming in 1.3 seconds.
You can take pictures and record movies with this multi-colored camera. Both video and still images get stored on either an SD or SDHC card. Like I said, it will do 720p video or you can shoot stills at 7.1MP.
In an effort to reduce development process to fabricate a much competitive and high resolution surveillance camera in the increasingly popular security-segment of digital camera industry; Sanyo turned to its company’s 4MP production camcorder, whipped out a full HD resolution networked surveillance Camera based on the goodies and image processing engine from the “Xacti” camcorder.
Panasonic has confirmed pricing details for its latest digital camera and camcorder range, including the LUMIX FH7 with the company's bizarre Beauty Retouch mode that allows you to make anybody look like Dame Barbara Cartland. The FH7 will be $179.99 when it lands early in July, while the five new camcorders are priced from $169.99.
Monday's here and we've got another week ahead of us. And today's already been pretty busy, considering Apple's gone and outed the official release date of their upcoming OS, and even Nokia got some netbook action unveiled. And while I'm sure someone at Sanyo cares about all of that, we're sure they're thinking you should be more excited about a small camcorder that's capable of recording at 720p. And, if that's not all, there's something else that might entice you to grab this little camera.
