iFrame Compatibility

Sanyo's FH1A uses the iFrame video format (960 x 540/30fps) to make working with video on your Mac or PC a breeze. 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

1920 x 1080p High Definition

The VPC-FH1A gives you full 1920 x 1080p/60fps high definition recording for detailed, beautiful images that look great on your HDTV or on the 'net. And, because the FH1A records in the Internet friendly format of MPEG4 AVC/H.264 your videos are ready for uploading and sharing on social media sites instantly

Flash Memory Recording

Record to SD/SDHC memory cards up to 32GB with the FH1A for uncomplicated storage and transfer of all your video and still images

3 Inch LCD Display

The 3 inch LCD screen flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees, allowing for video and stills shot from often difficult to view positions

8MP Still Images

Aside from shooting high definition video, the FH1A also takes 8MP still photos which can be interpolated up to 12MP

16x Advanced Optical Zoom

12 Subject Face Chaser

Three-Dimensional Noise Reduction

Sanyo's Three-Dimensional Noise Reduction (3D-DNR) improves video clarity by reducing random signal noise. This improvement in bit rate allocation results in a more accurate video image

Digital Image Stabilizer

The Digital Image Stabilizer of the FH1A compensates for up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your subject steady and easy to follow. It distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement

Simultaneous Video and Still Capture

Super-Fast Start-Up

When the FH1A is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. When you open the display the FH1A automatically powers up and begin recording in as little as 1.7 seconds

Sanyo Lithium-Ion Battery Included

The DB-L50 high capacity battery works with the FH1A to deliver approximately 135 minutes of video record time. The DB-L50 is designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time

Easy Playback on HDTV

The FH1A camera features an HDMI output which makes connecting it to your HDTV or DVD recorder a snap. The FH1A can also be easily connected to a computer to back-up copies of recorded content. Still images and video clips are played back continuously and in chronological order. When connected to a computer, 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

NTSC/PAL Switchable

This Dual camera makes it Mac compatible and friendly (it was my main reason to buy it). And it's very easy to use.

I highly recommend this camera!

I really love this camera! Since I've had it, I've been filming skateboarding and animals. It has been great for both of those things. The HD is great althouh it does really poor in low light. But with so many different picture and video settings, this really is a great camera

Pros: EXCELLENT HD video Excellent still pictures, even with default settings. Very small. *almost* pocket size. Slow motion capability. Very low learning curve. Cons: steady cam doesn't work too well. Can't record slow-mo while shooting normal video. Horrible video quality in low light No mic input HD video is where this camera really shines. This has to be one of the best cameras for less than 400 dollars.

Best Quality and Value Camcorder

We wanted an HD camcorder to replace an old Sony non HD albatross.The Sanyo is so compact that it easily fits in your purse. The picture quality is outstanding. Our 15 year old daughter wants to upload some video on Youtube and it was no problem at all. Also, we were concerned with compatibility issues with Mac computers but its NO PROBLEM, imovie is a breeze. ...We are loving our new HD camcorder.

I love this camera for the price,

I like all the features, mainly using a hard disk with the camera, not needing a computer to store and play videos from the external hard disk.

Good Bang for your buck.

The Sanyo FH1ABK is an excellent high definition video camera for the price. The video quality is quite good for an inexpensive consumer camera. I am using it for sporting events. You can see players numbers quite clearly. Additionally, the pictures genreated whiling shooting videos are reasonable. It is very simple to use and is quite intuitive. The super slow motion feature is the only one that does not live up to expectations. You can only get 240 fps at about 450 X 300 pixels. Overall, I am very happy with the Sanyo.

Best camera in it's class

Ordered this camera from Canada. ...For a camera in this price range it is almost perfect.Great features and good quality.Comes with a bunch of cables(all but HDMI cable - got that for $3 from an auction site).I don't see how people can complain about it being a bad performer in low light.It actually seems to amplify light (maybe change some of the numerous setting options to suit your individual needs).The shape of the camera and the electronic image stabilizer make it very easy to hold the camera steady while recording.Image stabilization seems to have been a major complaint for some people but not for me.Love the slow motion settings(600 fps or 240 fps) and the macro lets you go as close as 1 cm to the object(less than half an inch).Numerous HD settings make it perfect for anyone!All in all i would recommend this camera to anyone!!!
