Sanyo VPC-HD700

 

High resolution stills and laudable quality for the money, but image stabilisation isn't the best

The design also makes the Sanyo one of the smaller models on test in this Labs – the HD700 can even be squeezed into a jeans pocket, a rather painful feat if attempted with the bulky Canon HG10
