Sanyo's just let out details on the Xacti VPC-SH1 ahead of its February launch. This full HD camcorder boasts an "industry's smallest, lightest, and thinnest class body" at just 7.2 ounces in weight and 1.69 inches in thickness. At the same time, you get a 35mm wide-angle effect through the magic of enlarged sensor area -- full HD is only two megapixels while this Xacti uses a 3.5-megapixel area in video mode. You get the usual H.264 goodness here, but Sanyo's taken one step further by applying for iFrame certification to keep the few adventurous users happy. $399.99 isn't bad for this spec and form factor -- the bulkier FH1A from last October cost an extra Benjamin, for instance, but there's no harm in waiting for some sample videos and 10-megapixel photos before smashing our piggy bank.
