SANYO has released its two new high-end digital camcorders – SANYO VPC-HD2000A (vertical form factor) and VPC-FH1A (horizontal), which the company claims as the world’s first camcorders that support new iFrame video format – the next generation computer-friendly video format (designed by Apple) which allows users to dramatically speed up the process of importing, editing and sharing movies by keeping the content in its native recorded format while editing, aiming to enhance your video editing and sharing experience.
