Xacti HD1000

 

Sleek and eye-catching design, user-friendly interface, above average stills capabilities

Outperformed by other HD units on the market

Despite the presence of superior alternatives on the market, the HD1000 remains an impressive and affordable HD option. As a sweet bonus, it also happens to be one of the coolest looking gadgets you'll ever own.

Sanyo VPC-HD1000

 

A good price coupled with outstanding image quality - a good budget alternative to the Panasonic HDC-HS9

Despite its size, it's just as comfortable to hold and use as the HD700. The buttons may be more plentiful, but they still all fall conveniently under the thumb, so it's simple to use the camcorder with one hand
