Sanyo has dropped two new camcorders under their Xacti line at CES 2010, both looking very different from one another, but both delivering Full HD 1080p video.

The traditional-looking Sanyo XACTI VPC- SH1 (seen above in black) totes a 35mm wide-angle lens with 30x optical zoom. It captures 4-megapixel stills (10-megapixels with interpolation).

The XACTI VPC-CS1, on the other hand, (pictured in white) almost gives the appearance of a mini HD cam. This upright, 1-inch thick camcorder comes with 10x optical zoom and shoots 3-megapixel stills (8-megapixels with interpolation).

Some of their common features include digital image stabilization, zoom microphones, face tracking, and use MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 as the native recording format. And for transferring content, there's a mini-HDMI port along with Eye-Fi and SDXC memory card slot compatibility.

We'll see both of these on sale in February 2010, with the Sanyo XACTI VPC-SH1 priced at $399.99 and the XACTI VPC-CS1 for $299.99.
