    Sanyo Xacti VPC-SH1 camcorder review

    By 16 June 2010

    Claimed to be the smallest and lightest in its class, the VPC-SH1 is Sanyo's latest range topping "dual camera". That's to say, although looking like a pocket camcorder pure and simple, now it has eschewed the Xacti range's eye-catching pistol grip design...

    Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1 camcorder review

    By 21 May 2009

    The TH1 is aimed at those on a budget who still want to benefit from HD recording. It’s 720p rather than Full HD, but that’s still more than adequate for most applications. The 3in widescreen LCD screen is impressive as is the 30x optical zoom. The...
