Sanyo has launched a new flagship HD camcorder on Wednesday at an event in London and Pocket-lint was there to get a hands-on picture gallery.

The new model, which will cost £549.99 and be available in February, will offer users 1080p video resolution at 60 frames per seconds.

Footage can be recorded onto an SDHC card (up to 32GB), while those looking for digital still shots will be pleased to see that you also get a 9-megapixel still camera tucked in the pistol grip form factor.

Sanyo will also offer a series of screw on lenses including a wide-angle offering (pictured) and a macro lens.
