We at Camcorder HQ have rarely been as excited about a camcorder as we are about the Sanyo Xacti HD-1A. These elfin little camcorders slide ride into the palm of your hand, and record directly to Secure Digital memory cards. Sanyo has been putting these kinds of cameras out for a while now, but this is the first ultra-compact High Definition camcorder we've ever seen. the HD-1A records in 720p High Definition, at 60 frames per second, and astounding feat for such a little camcorder. With a 2GB Secure Digital card (which you definitely should get), you can capture 42 minutes of High Definition video (more time than most MiniDV tapes and a higher quality, too) and over 1000 digital still-photos at 5 megapixels. Amazing!
