Sanyo → Engadget: The Sanyo Xacti-line of camcorders just got a bump in specifications that should be very popular with anyone who is interested in shooting some nice 1080p footage. At 60fps. Most 1080p camcorders are limited to just 30fps and at that rate a lot of fast moving objects are not captured very well; just not very smooth. At 60fps even objects that move fairly quickly should be captured and viewed without a lot of jaggies.
The Xacti DMX-HD2000, shown above in Champagne Gold and Black, will be available next month. The video will be stored in AVC/H.264 format, which a lot of video processing programs will be able to easily handle. You really don’t want to have to transcode one video file format to another when importing to a video processing program: quality deteriorates so much that HD becomes almost SD like.
