With a 2" LCD display for composition and playback, digital image stabilization, and other recording features like 3x optical zoom, the VPC-PD2 provides you with a number of tools for preserving all your memories with ease.

When it comes time to share what you've shot the VPC-PD2 features embedded editing software. In addition to letting you customize your photos and videos, Sanyo's embedded software helps you upload directly to social networking sites like Facebook, YouTube, and it even allows you access to Twitter for tweeting. You can also choose to upload your videos right to iTunes for transfer to your video capable iPod or iPhone. If you'd rather see your creations on the big screen, the HDMI connection allows for one-cord connection to your HDTV.

High Performance and Sharing Made Simple
In addition to delivering 1080 HD video quality, the PD2 captures 10MP digital photos in small pocket camcorder design. Separate photo and video recording buttons allow images to be captured easily without changing modes

The PD2 packs 1080 HD video performance into a small, stylish, easy to use pocket camera. Designed to fit in the palm of your hand, the PD2 features an easy to navigate menu which make it a great choice for the beginner and the more advanced user. The integrated, direct USB connection enables the camera to be connected to a PC in seconds without the need for any cables

Embedded Software for Sharing Videos and Photos
The PD2 features Sanyo's embedded software application for sharing videos and photos to social media websites. The first time the PD2 is connected to the PC, the Simple Uploader application installer will appear. The application installation takes less than one minute. Videos and photos can be tagged and quickly uploaded to Facebook, YouTube, and Picassa using the Simple Uploader. A convenient link to Tweet on Twitter is available as well
2" LCD Display for HD Playback
The large display allows you to record high definition video or still images in an unobtrusive manner; proving to be especially useful when the need arises to set up and shoot quickly
3x Optical Zoom
The PD2 provides 3x optical zoom, increasing the field of view. This capability is virtually unmatched in the pocket camcorder segment of the digital camcorder market today. The wide angle lens provides an extensive range for video (36mm-108mm) and photos (37mm-111mm)
High Speed Sequential Photo Mode
The PD2 features a sequential "photo" shooting mode. When this mode is selected, the camera will take multiple photos in sequential order; providing multiple photo frames. It enables capturing up to 30 photos (1600 x 1200 resolution) at 10 frames per second (in 2MP continuous mode). This allows the camera to be used with confidence even in situations where photo opportunities can easily be missed
Sophisticated Image Stabilizer
The PD2 features photo stabilizer technology. It automatically will compensate for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping the subject steady and easy to follow. The PD2 accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement
Windows 7 Compatible
The PD2 is fully supported by the latest Windows OS, Windows 7, further expanding its capabilities. The video files are displayed in the same thumbnail format as still picture files. They can also be played back directly with Windows Media Player and are editable with Windows Live Movie Maker. This makes the files even more convenient for use on computers
Easy Playback of Recorded Video Directly on an HDTV
The PD2 camera features a mini-HDMI output which makes connecting it to a large, high definition television screen or DVD recorder a breeze. The PD2 can also easily be connected to a computer to back-up copies of recorded content via the handy, direct USB 2.0 connection. Still images and video clips are played back continuously and in chronological order. When connected to a PC, a simple drag-and-drop operation makes it easy to save recorded video clips and still images onto a computer's hard disk for emailing, editing or archiving
SDXC Memory Card Compatibility
While the PD2 works with standard SD memory, and more high capacity SDHC memory cards, it is also fully compatible with the next generation SDXC memory cards. The PD2 can record to more than 64GB of content to SDXC memory cards. This dramatically improves your ability to record and transfer hours and hours of Full HD 1080 videos to a computer. You can also play PD2 Full HD 1080 videos stored on SDXC cards on your high definition TV
Includes a High-Capacity Sanyo Brand Lithium-Ion Battery
The DB-L80 is a high capacity 700mAh battery designed by Sanyo to work with the PD2. It delivers approximately 65 minutes of video record time and can provide up to 240 minutes of continuous playback. The high-energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in the PD2. It will resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time
Highly Advanced MPEG4 AVC/H.264 Video Compression
This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or emailing 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. Sanyo's imaging technology achieves high video quality while simultaneously reducing the system power consumption
48kHz, 16 Bit, AAC Stereo Sound with Built-In Stereo Microphone and Built-In Speaker
The PD2 pocket movie Dual Camera records at 48KHz, 16 bit sampling rate. Sound is recorded in a Windows and Mac-friendly AAC audio format. Now you can record, download, and share videos that sound as great as they look - it's that easy
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 20 Hours of Full Motion Video
The PD2 supports the SD memory card standard making it easy to capture videos, photos, and sound recordings in a reliable, easy-to-use format. SD memory cards are available in three capacity formats: SD, SDHC (up to 32GB) and SDXC (up to 64GB available today). The newest generation is SDXC (Extended Capacity) which supports increased storage capacities up to 2TB along with faster read and write operations. Using a 32GB SDHC memory card with the PD2, you can capture up to 20 hours worth of standard definition, full motion video or more 330 minutes in Full HD 1080 video mode
Capture Still Images While You're Shooting Video
The PD2 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)
Super-Fast Start-Up
Reduce the chance of missing the perfect shot. The Dual Camera PD2 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the PD2 eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds! Simply power on the PD2 and immediately begin recording
