      This video/audio recorder is well worth its price and very ergonomic. The Sanyo Xacti-HD1a shoots the video in MPEG-4 that brings the file size down and the HD quality still remains.

      What I’ve experienced with this digital recorder so far is surprisingly good! As Sanyo promises, the video quality is fantastic and they navigation through the menus are quite simple and doesn’t take much to learn. The 10x zoom works really great, and it’s not too

      bad picture at 10x zoom. It uses SD memory cards instead of old tapes. You can take still images with the 5.1 megapixel and it looks really great (JPEG). When taking pictures you can use the built in popup speedlight, it works. One great thing about Sanyo Xacti-HD1a is the image stabilizer which give a professional look without the camera shaking etc.

      The down sides are the audio recording and battery time. I’m a musician ...

      • so I’m very strict when the audio don’t satisfy me, which this doesn’t do. IF the audio is too loud the whole sound screws up really bad, but if you just want to record you talking and such it will work okay. If you want better sound you can plug in an external microphone into the 2,5 mm jack. Now the battery, maybe I’ve just bought bad batteries but when I’ve fully charged them
        they only last for about 30 minutes.

        If you navigate through the menus you’ll find some nice color filters; sepia, monochrome and black and white. Those are great if you want an old or dramatic effect, very useful and easy to use.

        It weighs approximately 210g (235 with battery and memory card). And with the Sanyo Xacti-HD1a a useful remote comes along, it got everything that you’ll need to start shooting. I use it frequently when it comes handy.
