Follow CameraEducator.blogspot.com by Jan van der Meer (Global-DVC.Org) for more tips and info on filming with mini cams like Sanyo HD Flip Mino Kodak Sony. The Xacti SH1 features SANYOs original 35mm Wide Angle and Advanced Zoom technology. This technology expands the video shooting area by enlarging the size of the video image captured on the CMOS from 2 megapixels (as on conventional Full HD models) to 3.5 megapixels. By using the pixels more effectively, it is able to perform the equivalent of 35 mm wide-angle shooting on a traditional film camera. At the other extreme, the SH1s focal length can be set to 1050 mm when you use the built-in 30x zoom.
