Xacti DMX-HD700 hands-on… Well done Sanyo!
This morning Sanyo organized an informal meeting for us, where we could quickly play with both the HD1000 and HD700. While we we will of course receive both products for a test within the coming weeks, we wanted to share with you our very first impression on the HD700.
First of all, the product is extremely well made; it takes after the water-proof model E1, but in a smaller package. Even if the HD700 is replacing the HD2, there is absolutely no comparison between the two of them: the HD700 is REALLY capable in providing you great 720p video, FINALLY! Of course do not expect to get a stunning and crispy image like a HVX200 for example, with an HD700, but for an everyday usage model, OR for your Blog, this is clearly a great choice.
As the photo quality is concerned, well not much to say here, it has a “Xacti” quality picture, which is quite decent, but not stunning. Once again, perfect for an everyday usage.
Once again, we will get both the HD1000 (This is one is a killer!) and HD700 for a spin within few weeks, but I am very pleased to tell you that Sanyo worked very hard to provide us a great product which you will surely enjoy using everyday. Finally a lot of people asked me if the HD700 is or will be available like the E1 with a Waterproof body; even though Sanyo could not confirm this either way, they told us that they have had a lot of requests regarding this matter, and I am sure that in the future they will come with a possible water-proof HD700 (just cross your fingers).
