Introduced in February 2009, the Xacti HD2000 is a high-end handheld camcorder from Sanyo, and the highest model available in the 2009 Xacti lineup. Utilizing a 1/2.5" CMOS sensor, the HD2000 features the ability to take large 8MP still shots, while shooting video in full 1080p at 60fps, or 250 or 600fps for slow motion. With 10x optical zoom, pop up flash, and a large 2.7" swivel screen, the device uses SD and SDHC cards for storage.

The Sanyo VPC-HD2000 is a full HD camcorder with a revolutionary design cited as making the art of photography appear urban, hip, and stylish. The second of two Sanyo VPC full HD camcorders, the Sanyo VPC-HD2000 is an upgrade from the Sanyo VPC-FH11. Although the VPC-HD2000 trades in its peer’s 8GB of internal memory for no memory, its F2.0-2.9 aperture for a F1.8-2.5 aperture, and its 3” LCD screen for a 2.7” screen, the VPC-HD2000 is nevertheless considered an upgrade due to its revolutionary and highly-stylish, vertical pistol-grip design. In addition, the VPC-HD2000 boasts a 10x optical zoom lens and a 8.1 megapixel image sensor, not to mention a 16x advance zoom. Plus, the VPC-HD2000 offers full high-definition, progressive 1080p (1920x1080) recording at 60 fpm, not to mention high-speed recording at 240 or 600 fps. The VPC-HD2000 also offers up to 3200 ISO, a digital image stabilizer for both photos and videos, an SD/SHDC card that reads up to 32GB, 8GB of built-in memory, and an HDMI output. The Sanyo DMX-HD2000 retails for a more expensive $599.95 (versus $499.95) and comes with a 90 day limited warranty.

When file acheives 4GB on FAT32 formatted SD card, the camera must stop because it is upper file size limit for FAT 32 file system. The manual says the camera should begin recording into next file.

The large HDSC requirement really can't be considered a con. If you want to record 1080p @60fps, you need space. The camera already uses MP4/H.263. I found it for under $500 a few months ago. There are probably better deals out there now. I don't think there is another 1080p/60 camera out there at this price that is this compact. It's not as small as the other Xacti's, but I can still drop it into a large coat or cargo pants pocket.
