Camcorder Info has reviewed a full HD camcorder from Sanyo. The Sanyo camcorder is called Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 and is able to capture HD videos at a resolution up to 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Some key features for the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1:
-Video resolution up to 1920 x 1080 pixels
-9x optical zoom lens (38 – 380mm)
-2.7″ LCD screen
-Uses SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards

Camcorder Info ends up giving the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 a pretty poor review. The Sanyo camcorder is actually able to capture videos of good quality in bright light, but there are several shortcomings like cheap design, terrible handling and the controls could be much better. The biggest problem with the camcorder is that is not really able to get the shots in focus. It seems like a pretty useless camcorder if you ask me, even though it has some very impressive specifications. Better luck next time Sanyo!

Press release:
Classic and refined: the new E1403 digital camera from SANYO

A host of functions offering optimum value for money

Munich, 28 June 2010——The new VPC-E1403 digital camera from SANYO exudes pure style in its shimmering metal housing. Its slim and compact dimensions (99 x 56.8 x 18.8 mm) mean it is always close at hand to capture those magic moments. The 14-megapixel resolution ensures every detail is caught to precision. The E1403 also cuts a fine figure when filming, recording videos in high definition at 720p, while the large 3 inch TFT LC colour display is ideal for reviewing images.

Refinement in detail
The E1403 from SANYO takes pictures in loving detail at resolutions of up to 14 megapixels. The compact camera also features an HD video function to record films in 720p (1,280 x 720 pixels, 30 fps). Plus, the 3x optical zoom brings even distant objects crystal-clear to the 3 inch TFT LC colour display. A host of macros with preset parameters for landscapes, sports or fireworks ensure that whatever the theme, it appears in its true light. Smile and blink recognition are included for perfect portraits. That’s because the E1403 recognises smiling faces itself and takes the snap automatically, without you having to press the release. If someone blinks when the shutter closes, the photographer is alerted by the blink recognition and can take another shot. The digital image stabiliser cancels out blurs, and the high light sensitivity of ISO 6400 means the E1403 can overcome unfavourable lighting conditions.

Equipped for photo odysseys
The cameras saves your work to an SD or SDHC card and the high-capacity lithium-ion battery inside the E1403 supplies enough power for up to 180 pictures. It is easily connected to a computer with a USB cable and with an AV cable, you can even view your favourite memories on your television too.

Pricing, availability and warranty
The manufacturer’s recommended retail price (incl. VAT) for the E1403 is €129. The digital camera in silver (VPC-E1403EX) is on sale as of June. SANYO offers a three-year guarantee on its cameras.
