Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 HD camcorder

 

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 camcorder provides very good performance for its quite reasonable price.

Good image quality for asking price, above average low-light performance, impressive battery life

MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec incompatible with some editing applications, unintuitive menu

Sanyo has made a name for itself producing high quality, low cost camcorders and the Xacti VPC-FH1 is no exception. While it cannot hope to match high-end models from Canon or Sony, it remains a solid performer nonetheless.

We had widely variable results from our still image tests with the review camera. In bright sunlight it was possible to capture well-exposed photographs that were sharp enough to print at snapshot size and recorded a full and natural-looking colour...
