Sanyo Xacti VPC FH1 Camcorder Review
User reviews and opinions
|bertvdperk||9:46am on Sunday, October 3rd, 2010|
|This camera is pretty unreal for what you pay. I was in the market to upgrade my cam to the digital age. This is the only camera in this price range that will take up to 600 frame/second video for analysis of short duration sport events.|

|I was pleasantly surprised that the camera joystick can be programmed to lock exposure, compensate exposure and lock focus. I use the product for movies of all types, I am new to videography, and had no idea that a memory card was required to start fresh out of the box. Bought this camera based on web reviews, particularly low light performance. Have used it less than 24 hours.|

In addition, in the playback mode, the cameras power save function is disabled. i For information concerning connecting and operation, please see your TVs instruction manual. (As of May 2008, SANYO TVs that incorcorporate the HDMI-CEC function have not been released.)
INTRODUCTION TO THE OPTION SETTING MENU Relation between TV TYPE setting and TV display
The tables below show the video signal that is output when the TV TYPE setting is changed. However, note that for some TVs that have an auto-detect function, the output may not conform to the table, or the TV display may not change at all.

INTRODUCTION TO THE OPTION SETTING MENU File No. continued setting
If a newly formatted card is used, the file name (image number) of the captured image automatically begins from 0001. If the card is subsequently reformatted, or if a different reformatted card is used, the file names again begin from 0001. This is because the file number continued function is set to OFF, and consequently it results in more than one card containing images with the same numbers. By setting the file number continued function to ON, even if the card is reformatted or the card is replaced with another card, the consecutive numbering of file names continues from the last number recorded by the camera. <File number continued function OFF> Card A File name (image number) 0001, 0002. 0012, 0013 Replace card Card B 0001, 0002. 0012, 0013
<File number continued function ON> Card A File name (image number) 0001, 0002. 0012, 0013 Replace card Card B 0014, 0015. 0025, 0026
i If Card B already has files in it when it replaces Card A, file names are assigned as follows. When the highest file number on Card B (before replacing) is lower than the highest file number on Card A: the file name of the next recorded image continues from last file name recorded on Card A. Card A 0001, 0002.. 0012, 0013 Replace card Card B 0001, 0002, 0014, 0015.. 0025, 0026
Previously recorded files When the highest file number on Card B (before replacing) is higher than the highest file number on Card A: the file name of the next recorded image continues from last file name recorded on Card B. Card A 0001, 0002.. 0012, 0013
Replace card Card B 0020, 0021, 0022, 0023.. 0025, 0026
Previously recorded files
HINT i Until the file number continued function is turned OFF, consecutive file names are assigned. It is recommended that the file number continued function be returned to OFF at the end of each photography session.
INTRODUCTION TO THE OPTION SETTING MENU Formatting (initializing)
A card must be formatted with this camera: i After purchasing, when used for the first time, or i If it was formatted using a personal computer or another digital camera. The card cannot be formatted if the lock switch is set to the LOCK position. Proceed with the format procedure after setting the lock switch to the unlocked position. CAUTION Caution during formatting i Do not turn off the power to the camera or eject the card during formatting. Formatting erases the data i When a card is formatted, all data recorded on the card is erased. Protected data (pages 55 and 104) is also erased, so before formatting a card, any data you want to keep should be copied to your personal computers hard disk or other storage medium. Caution regarding disposing/transferring the card (recovering data from a reformatted card) i If a card is reformatted or the data is erased from the card using the camera or a computer, the cards control data may be merely modified and the data itself may not be completely erased from the card. i In some cases it may be possible to recover the data from a reformatted card using special software for that purpose. However, if the camera is used to execute a full format, it will be impossible to recover the data even by the use of data recovery software. i If you are disposing of a card, it is recommended that you physically destroy it. If you are transferring the card to someone else to use, it is recommended that you use the cameras full format function to reformat the card, or use commercially available software for erasing card data. Managing data is the responsibility of the user.

HINTS FOR TAKING PICTURES
Taking great pictures in difficult surroundings is easier than you might think. By keeping a few points in mind and choosing the correct settings, you can create photos that youll be proud to display and share.
If images are blurred even when the autofocus is used
Your camera employs an autofocus function. When you snap a picture using the autofocus, the camera automatically adjusts the settings so that the image will be in focus. If you are getting blurred images even when using the autofocus, one or more of the following might be the reason. k How the autofocus works The autofocus is activated when the [ ] button is gently pressed halfway. Press the [ ] button slightly, and the target mark will appear on the monitor to indicate that the autofocus has been activated. Next, continue to gently press the [ ] button all the way to snap the picture. This two-step method is the way to ensure that your photos are perfectly focused. k Reasons for unfocused images 1 The [ ] button was pressed all the way in one step. 2 After the image was focused, the subject moved. h Even if camera focuses the subject once, if the distance between the camera and the subject is changed, the subject may become out of focus. 3 The focus setting is not set for the correct distance. h If you shoot a close-up subject with the camera set to the normal focus mode, or if you shoot a subject at normal distance with the camera set to the super macro (close-up) mode (pages 52, 61 and 93), the image will not be in focus. k Preventing blurred images 1 Confirm that the camera is set to the correct focus mode for your subject. 2 Hold the camera correctly, and press the [ ] button halfway. 3 Wait for the target mark to appear in the monitor, and holding the camera steady, gently continue to press the [ ] button all the way down. Following these steps for a gentle but firm pressing of the [ ensure that you get beautifully focused photos. ] button will
HINTS FOR TAKING PICTURES Photographing a moving subject
Situation: You would like to snap an action shot of a moving child or pet. The autofocus is activated, but because the subject is moving, the image may be blurred. In particular, when the distance between the camera and the subject is changing, it is difficult to lock the focus on the subject. Here are some hints for successfully capturing images of moving subjects. k Reasons for unfocused images When the [ ] button is gently pressed halfway, the cameras autofocus works by determining the distance between the camera and the subject. Once the subject is in focus, if it then moves before the picture is snapped, the image may be out of focus. This often happens when you once lock the focus on a subject and then wait for the right moment to snap the picture. And, conversely, a blurred image may result if you press the [ ] button all the way in one step in an attempt to quickly capture an action scene, thus failing to activate the autofocus in time. k Preventing blurred images (How to use the manual focus [page 93]) In addition to the autofocus, a manual focus mode is also incorporated in your camera. In the autofocus mode, the distance between the camera and the subject is automatically determined when you press the [ ] button halfway. In contrast to this, with the manual focus mode, you manually set the focus by specifying the correct distance between the camera and the subject before taking the picture. k How to photograph a moving subject 1 Set the cameras focus mode to the manual focus. Set the focus distance to the correct distance between the camera and the subject. 2 When the subject is at the set focus distance, gently press the [ ] button all the way down. <Advantage of using the manual focus> i Images can be quickly captured without waiting for the autofocus to activate. i Because you are presetting the focus distance, the focus can be more accurate. <Using the manual focus effectively> i When photographing a moving subject, press the [ ] button just before the subject reaches the focus distance, and the shutter will be released when the subject is at the correct distance. i Use manual focus to avoid incorrectly focused images when there is an object between the camera and the subject you wish to focus on.
