The Sanyo Xacti HD2 is said to be the world's smallest and lightest high-definition digital video camera and the highly anticipated next-generation follow-up to 2006's innovative and multi award-winning HD1 and HD1a series.
    
The camera combines the functionality of a 720p
high-definition digital camcorder and 7.1-megapixel digital still camera into one ergonomic, pocket-sized device. For optimized performance, a new HDMI digital interface, built into the HD2's multifunction docking station, provides an all-digital output to HDTVs and high-definition video recorders. Featuring a unique pistol-grip and thumb-operable design, the HD2 can record up to 21 minutes of high-definition video (or up to one hour of standard-definition video) per gigabyte of available memory on any standard SD or high-capacity SDHC card (memory cards sold separately). Using a single 8-gigabyte SDHC card, HD2 users can easily and spontaneously shoot nearly three hours of high-definition video, up to eight hours of standard-definition video or thousands of 7.1- megapixel digital still images.

Sanyo reports that the camera will be available in the U.S. in March 2007 at an MSRP of $699.99.
