Macworlds buying advice
I wish the Sanyo Xacti VPC-SH1 provided higher data rates, cleaner low-light video, a built-in lens cover, and better image stabilization. But fulfilling those wishes would probably raise the price of the camcorder. The VPC-SH1 is not a great camcorder, but considering its price, that's OK. Its blend of respectable video and still image quality, compact but not cramped size, functional core features, support for the easy-to-edit iFrame format, and reasonable price make the Sanyo Xacti VPC-SH1 a good, sensible purchase.
