Sanyo HD2000 Two in One

sanyo-hd2000Sanyo has done good job in promoting usage of handheld camcorders over the past many years. They are continuously updating the range. Have a look at Sanyo’s pistol grip design HD2000 that can record video in full 1080p HD resolution at 60 frames per second (fps) and is a proper dual-mode 8-megapixel camera. The HD2000 has no internal storage of its own and records straight to SD though can support SDHC cards up to 32GB.

Design is portable and comfortable to hold when shooting video footage (not pistol grip cannot be used while taking stills).The base has a tripod fitting to help overcome this and there is also an anti-shake option that can be turned on to minimize the effect of an unsteady hand.

The HD2000 comes with large number of useful accessories like a docking station, charger, soft carry pouch, hand-strap and lens cover, as well as an S-Video cable, USB cable and Component cable for connecting the camera to a PC, TV or printer. There is also a remote control which can be used for recording and playback.

Main claim of HD2000 to fame is recording video. Colors are good and the picture quality is pin sharp, even outdoors, where a lot of other cameras start suffering from faded colors. The HD2000 only records video into MPEG4 format, which is very good for compression, but limits the option of later conversion to other formats without losing a lot of the picture quality.

The Sanyo’s HD2000 is one of the best tool for those who just want a single device to capture basic, but high quality, pictures and video. Try that.
