Apple silently cooked up a new video format dubbed iFrame. The iFrame format has a resolution of 960 x 540px and is designed by Apple to speed up importing and editing by keeping the content in its native recorded format while editing.
The first two camcorder supporting iFrame are from Sanyo. The new Sanyo VPC-FH1A (Buy Now On Amazon) and VPC-HD2000A camcorder were announced today.

The Sanyo HD2000A and the FH1A Dual Cameras are automatically programmed to default to the iFrame mode for ultimate ease of use and convenience to the user.
In addition to the iFrame video format (960 x 540), the cameras can record in High Definition 1080P (1920 x 1080), as well as high speed video formats for slow motion playback. The two new models are nearly identical camcorders in two different body designs. The HD2000A is in SANYO's signature vertical form factor while the FH1A is a traditional style camcorder shape (horizontal).

The new Sanyo VPC-FH1A And VPC-HD2000A not only offer a standard 1080i (interlaced) format (recording at 60 fields per second), but with the SANYO proprietary CMOS engine, recording is also available in an impressive 1080p (progressive) format, offering ultra-smooth, professional-looking 60 frames per second.
The cameras also offer 8-Megapixel still photos, sequential shooting, and a number of modes including macro photo capability.
