SanyoSanyo Xacti HD1A : A video recording mode optimized for the video iPod and other portable video players tops the advanced feature set of the Sanyo Xacti HD1a high-definition compact digital camera. Following quickly on the strong sales and critical success of the Sanyo Xacti HD1 introduced in January 2006, the high-definition Sanyo HD1a also adds such compelling features as a selectable 16:9 widescreen still picture mode and convenient in-camera video editing. The Sanyo HD1a retains its title as the world's smallest and lightest high-definition digital media camera. It will be available in the U.S. from Sanyo, the world's leading manufacturer of digital cameras and components, in September 2006 at a very competitive $699.99 MSRP.

The Sanyo Xacti HD1a retains its title as the world's smallest and lightest high-definition digital media camera. Featuring ergonomic, one-handed operation, the camera can record both 720p high-definition video and 5.1 Megapixel digital still images to a standard Secure Digital flash memory card. An all-new 16:9 shooting mode allows users to capture 3.8 Megapixel stills in the same widescreen format as their high-definition videos for eye-catching viewing on a 16:9 television screen.

Sanyo VPC HD1A - MPEG4 clips
"The remarkable success of our precedent-setting Xacti HD1, along with user feedback, prompted Sanyo to incorporate several new key features into the new Sanyo HD1a," said John Lamb, Senior Marketing Manager, for Sanyo Fisher Company's Audio Video Division. "Our inclusion of a 30 frames-per-second 320 x 240 pixel video recording mode, optimized for viewing MPEG-4 video clips on a video iPod or other portable video player, reflects a shift by consumers towards on-the-go viewing."

Sanyo Xacti VPC HD1A compact camera - Video and Editing
The Sanyo HD1a's new "Web-SHQ" recording mode is designed specifically to capture video destined for the video iPod and other popular MPEG-4 capable personal media players. For optimal playback on such devices, video is captured at a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and a smooth and natural 30 frames per second. The Sanyo Xacti HD1a features enhanced video editing functions, enabling quick A>B deletions and easy combining of video clips. In-camera editing makes it easy to remove unwanted material and helps conserve memory card space.

Sanyo Xacti HD1A digital camera - High-definition engine and display
The Sanyo Xacti HD1a is powered by high-precision LSI (large-scale integration) circuitry for advanced, high-definition image processing. This powerful "high-definition engine" quickly executes a vast number of calculations and enables the HD1a to realize image processing functions such as high-definition 720p processing, real-time MPEG-4 compression and noise reduction. The Sanyo Xacti HD1a features a large Sanyo-developed 2.2 inch LCD display with 210,000 total pixels for exceptional viewability. The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on axis for taking great video or still images even in difficult locations.

Sanyo VPC HD1A camera - Optical zoom and Digital video
The Sanyo HD1a features a generous and highly efficient 10x optical zoom lens. Built from 12 elements designed in 9 groups and with a built-in neutral density filter, the 10x zoom lens has a maximum aperture of f/3.5 in both wide and telephoto angles, allowing for clear images in lower light situations. Combined with a 10x digital zoom capability, the HD1a is capable of a total 100x zoom. Like the Xacti HD1 and all previous Sanyo Xacti digital media cameras, the Sanyo VPC HD1a can record still images in addition to video clips. Utilizing the 5.36 Megapixel (total) CCD, the Sanyo HD1a captures beautiful 5.1 Megapixel still images which are recorded directly onto a standard SD memory card. The camera can record both 5.1 Megapixel still images and high-definition (1280 x 720-pixel) digital video at the same time with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a video clip.

Sanyo Xacti HD1A digital compact camera - HD video
The Sanyo Xacti VPC HD1a can record up to 21 minutes of 720p HD video per Gigabyte on a standard SD or SDHC memory card. That's up to 42 minutes on a 2-Gigabyte card or 84 minutes on the soon to be released 4-Gigabyte SDHC card (cards sold separately). Alternatively, Sanyo HD1 users can select to record in Standard Definition mode (640 x 480 pixels at 30fps progressive) for up to one hour per Gigabyte of recording capacity. Users can quickly switch between high-definition and standard-definition recording modes by simply pressing the "HD/Norm" button located beneath the LCD display.

Sanyo Xacti VPC HD1A - Ergonomic and lightweight
Designed for convenient, one-handed operation and one-thumb control of most key functions, the truly ergonomic Sanyo HD1a is ready to use whenever inspiration strikes, at home or away. Lightweight at only 8.3 ounces (including battery and a standard SD memory card), the Sanyo HD1a measures 3.1" W x 4.7" H x 1.4" D.
