Sanyo Xacti HD2 DV Camera

Sanyo at CES updated its signature Xacti camcorder with the launch of the Xacti HD2. Still the smallest and lightest HD camera, according to its creator, the HD2 gains a much sharper 7.1-megapixel sensor that can rapidly capture still photos at its native resolution as well as record widescreen 720p video in MPEG-4 format. The sensor is also tuned for better light sensitivity and is 76% more receptive than its HD1 ancestor. Further modernizing the Xacti is support for higher-capacity SDHC cards. At 21 minutes per gigabyte, an 8GB card can capture almost three hours of 720p footage, Sanyo says. HDMI has also been added to the docking station and will relay both audio and video to a TV through a single cable. Built-in image stabilization and editing tools help correct images as well. Sanyo promises the HD2 in March for $700.
