I’m a huge fan of the Xacti line. I think for anyone who just needs to document events, cameras like the Xacti are brilliant. I took an HD1 to Italy and China and used it all the time. So, it’s exciting to see that they’ve introduced a new model, the HD1000.
The featureset is similar to the existing HD2, but it’s now got a 1920×1080 imager, giving you true 1080i imaging. It’s a bit on the spendy side, with an estimated retail of over $1000, but they tend to drop in price pretty quickly.
