Sanyo unveils tapeless HDV, 720p video camera

The new Sanyo Xacti HD1 Digital Media Camera can record 42 minutes of 720p HD on a 2GB flash memory card.

Sanyo debuted the Xacti HD1 pocket-sized, tapeless high-definition camera last week at the 2006 International CES in Las Vegas.

The Xacti HD1 Digital Media Camera records 720p, HDV and 5.1 megapixel digital still images to a standard SD flash memory card. It will be available in the United States in late March with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $799.99.

The Xacti HD1 uses high-precision LSI for image processing, enabling the HD1 to realize image processing functions, such as high-definition 720p processing, real-time MPEG-4 compression and noise reduction.

A flip-out viewfinder that can rotate 285 degrees on axis uses a 2.2in Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display with 210,000 pixels. The camera has a 10x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. A newly developed 5.36 megapixel CCD captures 5.1 megapixel still images. The HD1 can record more than 21 minutes of 720p HD video on a 1GB SD card or more than 42 minutes on a 2GB card. It also can record SD video, delivering more than two hours of storage on a 2GB SD card.
