Sanyo Xacti SH1
1080i HD video; MP4 (AVC/H.264) format; 30x "advanced" zoom; 2.7-inch LCD monitor; 43mm at thickest point; 4 megapixel still photos (10mp interpolated); Mac and PC compatible; Captures to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards; Rechargeable lithium-ion battery;
The Xacti SH1 packs an impressive 30x "advanced" zoom and full HD into an impressively slim body (not to mention 4-megapixel photos--it falls under Sanyo's "Dual" line). Full HD for $399 seems like a pretty good deal, though it would really, really benefit from optical image stabilization. We don't see any stand-out features that would make us run out and get this thing, and the user reviews we've seen suggest that too.
