Summer is almost here, and you know what that means—fun in the sun and a camcorder to record those memories. And with high definition video now mainstream, it’s time to consider investing in a new HD camcorder.
In this video, I take a first look at Sanyo’s new VPC-WH1 HD camcorder. This waterproof device shoots 720p video at 30 frames per second. You can take it underwater up to 10 feet deep. I’ll look at the the construction of the VPC-WH1, and then show some video shot with the camcorder.
Or you can look below for the full-quality video embedded from YouTube. (Please note our videos are now available in HD on YouTube as well!)
You can visit the VPC-WH1 product page for more product information. The camcorder is also available in blue. Macworld will have a full review with a mouse rating coming soon.
One thing I didn’t mention in the video is the format the VPC-WH1 uses. It records video as MP4 files, so you can simply drag and drop the video files from the memory card to your Mac. And I was able to import the video into Final Cut Express and iMovie ‘09.
