The Sanyo VPC-HD2000 Xacti Dual Camera (Black) is a full 1920 x 1080/60p flash memory camera that records to SD/SDHC memory cards up to 32GB. In addition to HD recording, the HD2000 also features compatibility with the Apple iFrame video format which allows for editing on both Mac and PC. Other notable features include 8MP digital stills, a 2.7 inch LCD display which rotates up to 285 degrees, super-fast 1.7 second start-up, and simultaneous video and photo capture. Don't be fooled by the camera's upright, pistol-grip design, the HD2000 packs in a lot of features that are meant to make your recording and sharing experience a user friendly one.

When it comes to Apple's iFrame (960 x 540/30fps), the camera's default recording format, you'll enjoy uncomplicated editing on a Mac or PC. The format is optimized for editing video in iMovie '09, but applications that support H.264 content are compatible with iFrame as well. With iFrame you'll be able to share your movies right away across multiple platforms and devices. Aside from the iFrame format, the camcorder also boasts easy transfer of video and still images to iTunes for storage on your iPod. There's also an HDMI output for one cable connection to your HDTV or DVD recorder.

The HD2000 also provides you with a number of recording functions that make capturing video a breeze. The 16x Advanced Optical Zoom helps when capturing far-off video subjects, and 10x Optical Zoom comes in handy for still shots. Face Chaser, slow motion recording, digital image stabilization, microphone and headphone jacks lend a hand as well for creating quality video and stills that will last a lifetime.

iFrame Compatibility
Sanyo's HD2000 uses the iFrame video format (960 x 540/30fps) to make working with video on your Mac or PC a snap. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so importing video is fast and file sizes are small. You'll be able to start editing and sharing your movies right away across multiple platforms and devices. iFrame is based on standard technologies such as H.264, AAC, MP4, and QuickTime, and is designed for optimized performance in iMovie '09
