Sanyo Xacti HD2 Flash Camcorder: Better Low Light, HDMI, Still 720p

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Lots of camcorder experts hated the Sanyo Xacti HD1's flash camcorder's quality, despite its 720p HD resolution. This update, the HD2, tackles the issue of lousy low light sensitivity with a 7.38 MPixel CCD. (It'll now work in 12.5 lux, while the older one only went as low as 50 lux.) That's good, because I actually like the HD1 a lot, except for that issue. The other concern of mine is the inability to zoom out wide enough to capture a scene while you're somewhat close to it. Maybe they'll fix that in the HD3. Either way, I really do like these $700 cams.
