Sanyo HD1a camera - Ergonomics|
According to Steve Digicams: "Ergonomics are great. The Sanyo HD1a is slightly "fatter" than its Xacti C5/C6 siblings, which actually made it a little more comfortable in your hands. The mostly metal exterior has a well built feeling to it and should survive an active user's lifestyle. Overall, the various controls are well placed and easy to use, however, I found the 4-way joystick is a bit on the touchy side. The onscreen menu system is very easy to navigate, allowing for quick changes to camera settings."
Sanyo Xacti HD1a review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "Image quality results were similar to what we found on the HD1. When using the 5m-H setting, the majority of our samples were sharp and showed good exposure. Colors are richly saturated, almost too much, and I found if you subtracted about 15%, images looked much better. The lens exhibits typical amounts of both barrel distortion and pincushioning at the wide angle and telephoto extremes, respectively. I was surprised to find only small traces of chromatic aberrations (purple fringing) present around objects with bright highlights, which is a common issue with consumer "super- zoom" models."
