There is a purple stripe in right side of the picture. It appears about every fifth shot. I think I will get replacement soon. Besides that camera is great!

Doug, Newbury Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The menus are quite easy to follow and when you work out how to disable the annoying verbal prompts it is nice to use.




Bad points:
The dangling lens cap is annoying. The recording and menu controls at the back require quite a bit of pressure from the thumbs; not so easy for those who suffer from joint stiffness.

Manufacturer's Description

The SANYO XACTI FH1 is truly the benchmark in high definition, offering 1920 × 1080 pixels, and 60 fields per second to record crystal clear and smooth motion for videos. This highly advanced dual camera not only offers the regular 1080i (interlaced) format, recording at 60 frames per second, but with the SANYO proprietary CMOS engine, recording is possible in 1080p (progressive) format—this means recording at a full 60 frames per second. With this higher frame rate capturing ability, videos look more professional, and offer smoother, higher quality images.

This fully equipped Full HD dual camera offer the latest in zooming technology, with a special 16x advanced zoom function. The new-style zoom gives a broader view as it zooms in, meaning more of the scene makes it into the frame than ever before.
