Sanyo Announces a New Xacti Compact HD Camera, the HD800, Hands-On

Here’s the DMX-HD800, the latest 720p HD camera from Sanyo. Available in Gold, Pink and Black, this 8Mpix camera is capable of recording video in 720p (1280×720) and uses the AVC/H.264 video codec. Receiving the face chaser module, our camera also has an improved interface to quickly download video from the camera to a PC.

The MAJOR improvement as far as we are concerned is the HUGE step forward in video quality. Believe us, the change is AMAZING, compared to the 700. Sanyo also worked very hard on noise reduction, and with these improvements the new HD800 is by far THE real and affordable HD compact camera killer!

    Mic-out?
    Say yes, please?
    The camera would be perfect for me if only it had mic out…

  • Fishyc

    3ddnr, and chaser for video,and still, was the only extra I read.

    Basically the HD700 has exactlythe same, to the T

    I thought We see HD 1440x1080i or P and as well as a 60 FPS.

    a CmosSensor over a CCD wit h star trek lighting effect

    By the pics shown all looks great, not sure what you’re saying on comparison stills if the 700 is shown or if it takes a larger pic. one word software

    also Firmware would be greatly appriciated for the 700 HD model. thanksfor the info.

  • GhostDog

    What about the most important thing: image stabilizer. I heard the one of the new Xacti HD1010 is even worse than from its predecessor the HD1000.
    Unfortunately Xacti Footage always looks so shaky… else I would have bought one long ago.

  • Chomper

    Who thinks HD700 is the best pocket-720p camera around? Just check out user reviews on amazon and you will see it has got some very narrow angle lens.

    Gosh, I just love the Xacti lineups. The form factor is just really cool.

    This is certainly sounding like the Sanyo brand we used to know of — the brand who made good-quality electronics at prices affordable to most. A lot of us remember owning or knowing someone who owned one or more of the portable-audio products, especially radio-cassette units that have come from this brand.
    Come on, keep up the good work and offer equipment that offers more for the same price as a Chinese-built no-name import.

    man, id like to stick this on a tripod. i can’t see anyway to do it from the pictures. be great to just put on the tripod for dance contests, bikini contests, and racing events. while im taking pictures.

    any news on USA availability?

  • the006iceman

    The HD800 has a tripod insert on the bottom. Also, the plans to bring this overseas are not yet decided, although there is a rumor that America might be the last place to get it.

  • http://www.autoshowevents.com gb

    that’s sweet. if it’s under 400 bucks i’ll probably buy. i have a portable slik tripod that’s laying around doing nothing. attaching the camera to tripod would be great.

    a comparison against the HD700 would be interesting. like to see the huge improvement in video quality between the two.

  • http://www.myviewbox.net chanin_yap

    I might get one. looks nice

  • http://techvideoblog.com Charbax

    Sanyo is really cool. I like my HD1000 very much. But I’d like Sanyo to integrate some wireless networking features in their next cameras. I posted a bunch of feature requests here http://charbax.com/2008/08/02/my-next-hd-camcorder-should-have-these-features/

    Although of course improving noise reduction, adding 1080p mode is perfectly awesome. I want WiFi, HSDPA, USB keyboard, Live video streaming and more stuff like that before I upgrade.

    The HD camcorder should become a Internet TV production studio all-in-one. Technology for that is available today, someone just needs to integrate it.

  • Ceasar

    Guess the HD800 will not come to US due to financial meltdown. Can’t find a reliable local camera selling the HD800. I ended up getting the camera online from warehouse123.com. Shipping was fast and well packed. Video quality seems as good as the HD1010. The still images are better, thanks to the higher pixels. Its main plus is its small size, which is also its primary advantage over HD1010.

  • TCX

    As I have been trying to point out recently, the price of the HD1000 seem too good to be true. Under $500!
