Good picture quality, though am not yet convinced that it is full hd, even though that is in the manufacturers description.

Excellent for its size, some drawbacks though. This is easily the smallest hd camcorder i have used, and my reaction after a few minutes’ fiddling around was that it was quite incredible for its size. But now that i have familiarised myself with it over a few days, i have a few reservations, none that should deter a purchase i wouldn’t have thought, but some factors that a would-be buyer needs to be aware of before making the commitment. I already have an hd camcorder by panasonic, bulkier and costlier but useful as a reference device because basically both devices do very similar things, although the panasonic records video onto mini-dvds and only still pictures onto an sd card. I have found the mini-dvd method disappointing and inconvenient, so i was looking forward to the greater simplicity as offered by the sanyo as it uses an sd card only for both still and moving pictures. I must say that i much prefer that convenience already. The main drawback with the sanyo xacti is also its main advantage – its size. For portability it is amazing – not much bigger than a mobile phone so easy to fit into any pocket, including jeans/trousers etc. For no-hassle transport it’s probably unbeatable in terms of picture quality relative to product volume. But this small size must, i feel, be the primary reason for purchase because it creates some problems as a result.

X xacti ly what i wanted. Purchased for someone and yet to use on holiday. From experience of my sanyo xacti the camera is well worth its price.

For this kind of money you don’t expect miracles, and you don’t get them. This is a good little camcorder and for the price it is a great way to capture family moments. The picture quality is good enough, better than a mobile phone but not quite up to a full camcorder. Similar to taking films on a digital camera. I have had a bit of an issue with the camcorder shutting itself down unexpectedly, and i’ve found it a bit unreliable as a result.

Good considering its small size & weight. First of all, in my view you should only consider this camcorder if size is quite important to you. Due to the sanyo xacti’s small size & slim profile (fits into even a small pocket easily), i believe it’s unfair to compare the xacti directly to bigger camcorders that have more room to include better optics etc. Video quality: quality is good outdoors during the day in fair conditions. If you’re going to do most of your shooting in such conditions, you’ll be fine with this camcorder. It should be noted that the xacti has a very small lens compared to proper camcorders and thus won’t capture as much light. As a result, in low light and indoors, quality suffers massively and the image is very grainy. Still photos: i tested the still photos feature indoors in decent light, and unfortunately it’s very poor – worse than even a mediocre mobile phone camera without flash. Don’t bother using this for stills. Build quality: unfortunately the build does feel a bit tacky in places, yet it seems sturdy enough and i wouldn’t worry about it breaking even with rough handling.

Another nice xacti camcorder Рmore secondary than a main camcorder. I am a big fan of mini dv camcorders as i like the safety of tapes Рi always fear that the dvd burner on a camcorder will give up at the vital point or the memory card will suddenly lose the vital bytes. However, my hd sony camcorder, the hdr-hc3 is a bit heavy after a while and therefore sometimes i curse its weight (although its recording quality is fantastic). I was pleased to be given the chance to use two xacti camcorders, both of which are very similar: the sanyo vpc-cs1ex-b xacti cs1 full hd dual camcorder which has an 8mp camera and the sanyo vpc-cg100exbk-b xacti cg100 full hd dual camcorder with 14m photos and hdmi Рblack with a 14mp camera. I will give a run down of both of these tiny camcorders, which both give virtually identical performance Рhence there are similarities in the reviews. The sanyo vpc-cs1ex-b xacti cs1 is boxed with a huge selection of accessories. There are cable for connection to a tv (very important now that we no longer have slide projectors), the battery and charger, a wrist strap (this saved my kids on a number of occasions) and a strap to hold the lens cover when not in use. Again, as with the cg100exbk-b i have to say i found the lack of an automatic lens cover slightly annoying but you have to expect economies at the price and also due to the size. The one glaring omission is a memory card. There is a tiny amount of memory built in but this soon goes unless you are just taking photos.
