Unless you’ve been living in Xanadu, you know that there has been an interesting convergence happening in the camcorder world.  Flip HD camcorders brought a new level of minimalism and ease with their cameras.  However, that convenience came at the price of optical zoom and image stabilization.  Now, Sanyo rides in on its white horse waving the Xacti VPC-PD2BK as the cure for your ills.  But is it?
