<h2>Best Camcorder: <a href="" target="_blank">Sanyo Xacti HD1010</a> (RRP: $999)</h2><br><br>The Sanyo Xacti HD1010 is one of the best sub-$1000 high-def camcorders we've ever tested. It combines comprehensive manual features with top-grade video quality and the convenience of removable flash memory recording. Sporting a plus-sized 1/2.5in CMOS sensor with a maximum resolution of 1920x1080p (i.e. Full HD), it is definitely worth the pennies.<br><br>The number of modes and features the Xacti HD1010 offers is astonishing for the asking price, including multiple focus options, adjustable aperture and shutter speeds, ISO sensitivity, noise/flicker reduction and an external microphone jack (to name but a few). This makes it a very good option for people who are serious about video. It also performs well in low lighting.<br><br>With an RRP of $999, the Sanyo Xacti HD1010 will cost an extra $99 on top of your tax bonus &#8212; but only because the Green Party sliced $100 off our cheques.
