Straight out of a movie, "2001 - A Space Odyssey." We're on the moon for an important briefing. Powerful people are waiting, they've traveled 250,000 space miles.
Photographer wears a weird 2001 too-slim checkered suit, and holds a little camera that looks like a photographer's spot meter. He looks through it, and takes his shot. Silent, no "click." He's done shooting. He's off. That's a dream camera.
THIS IS THAT CAMERA.
Sanyo Xacti HD1000 is a "True HD" camera. Its pictures are 1090 x 1920 dots, at 60 fps (i)nterlace or (p)rogressive. Easy to make 24p in editing.
(Magic Bullet or Cineform convert 60i to 24p. In Cinema Tools, DUPLICATE YOUR CLIPS, and then batch process your 60p to 24p. (Cinema Tools works only on QuickTime format files). Then, in Final Cut Pro, drag those clips to your Timeline, and set their frame rate to "250%," to make them 24fps. )
Xacti styling is great, reminds me of my Eumig Super 8mm, only it makes movies you can play on any HDTV in the world, and it costs LESS than my old S8mm camera cost me!
10:1 optical zoom, which replaces a full set of lenses. It's got the Sanyo "blue spot" lens flare under overhead light, so shade it or flag it, or learn to love the flare.
Cute, little, sexy. So is the camera.
Dave in Edinburgh loves his Sanyo Xacti HD1000.
I love my Flip, but it only shoots 720 dots, and the Xacti has a REAL LENS. When I need the HD real deal, I put my Xacti in my pocket, and I'm ready to roll. You can't buy this camera unless you appreciate it's really cool, and it looks great, and it's fun to use. Please tell me how you use your Xacti.
