Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 Highlights
Style Design Made Simple
The Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 hd camcorder packs cutting edge technology into a small, stylish, easy to use camera.
Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 digital video camera features an easy to navigate menu which make it a great choice for the beginner and the more advanced user. It is the perfect blend of style, performance, and ease of use.
Large, 3-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions, proving to be especially useful when shooting in confined spaces.
Up to 2-megapixel Still Image Quality
A 1.1 -megapixel (effective) CMOS image sensor is the heart of the still image capabilities. This sensor allows images to be interpolated to reach 2 megapixel quality.
30x optical zoom
The Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 HD video camera delivers HD video and 30x optical zoom. The lens provides a fantastic zooming range from F=43-1290 mm (35mm equivalent).
12 Subject Face Chaser Technology
Recognizes up to 12 faces for videos and still pictures and optimizes focus and aperture settings to ensure all subjects are in focus.
Sophisticated image stabilizer
Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 hd camcorder automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your subject steady and easy to follow.
It accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement. This handy feature operates in both wide-angle and telephoto modes.
Sequential photo mode shoots up to 13 frames per second
Take pictures like the pros with sequential shooting up to 13 fps. The perfect solution for action photography.
Highly advanced MPEG4 AVC/H.264 video compression
This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or e-mailing them to friends and family, even easier. In fact, the file size can be up to 25 percent smaller than that of typical MPEG-4 cameras.
To accomplish the complexity of encoding AVC/H.264 in real-time on the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 digital video camera, a dedicated H.264 video compression IC was incorporated into the camera that was designed specifically for portable consumer devices.
This achieves high video quality while simultaneously reducing the system power consumption.
Easily transfer video and still images to your video capable iPod
Import video and still image files directly into iTunes software and then port them to your video-capable iPod. Share your latest masterpiece with friends and family.
Record over 5 hours of full motion video
Using a 16 GB SDHC memory card users can capture up to 5 hours and 43 minutes worth of video in standard definition or approximately 3 hours and 51 minutes in HD video mode.
Capture still images while you’re shooting video
The Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 HD video camera enables simultaneous shooting of video clips and still images with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a movie clip. You will never need to miss another precious photo opportunity.
(Depending on the mode used to take still images, simultaneous video clip shooting may be interrupted. While shooting video clips, using the digital image stabilizer may change the angle of view for still images.)
Reduce your chance of missing the perfect shot. The Dual Camera Xacti TH1 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 hd camcorder eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds!
When the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 digital video camera is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. Simply open the display and the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 HD video camera automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as 1.7 seconds.
Includes a high-capacity Sanyo brand lithium-ion battery
The DB-L50 is a high capacity battery designed to work with the Sanyo Xacti TH1 camera and delivers approximately 200 minutes of video record time.
That’s over three hours and 20 minutes! High-energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 digital video camera. The DB-L50 is designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time.
Easy playback of recorded video directly on a TV

3.0 out of 5 stars You might find a camera with better recording. I wished this camera did not pushed the envelope in the 30x optical zoom. We tested this and on play back the picture was very granular and shaky. I mean really shaky. Read more Published 7 months ago by Sincerely Yours
3.0 out of 5 stars Good Choice for an Inexpensive Upgrade to HD, Good for Beginners Also.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best by a long shot (with full pan!), but offers decent value This is certainly not for those who need truly fine images. Canon and Nikon offer that, at a rather steeper price. Read more Published 10 months ago by K. Swanson
