Hands-On with the Sanyo Xacti DMX-HD1000

Today we got our hands on Sanyo's Xacti HD. The world's first 1080p camcorder is more than cute—seemed like just the right weight to me, and its two-button design is simple to use. It felt cool and fast, but the experience was not perfect. Bonus gallery of me doing silly things with its form factor.

Lots of camcorder experts hated the Sanyo Xacti HD1's flash camcorder's quality, despite its 720p HD resolution.
