Great value and effectiveness. . Exceptional camcorder at a good price. I was incredibly delighted with this purchase – in simple fact i purchased it to film the beginning of our newborn boy. Simple to use – just stage and shoot. Plenty of optional options for the extra state-of-the-art photographer, if preferred.
Bought on impulse – no regrets. Never had a camcorder and really wasn’t sure i even needed one but the price and a magazine write up sold it to me. Since then its been all over the world with me and stood up very well. For my short stubby fingers i do find the controls a bit fiddly but its not a camera fault is it?.I don’t feel there is any negative about this great little sanyo product. Smooth finish means it is slippy and i should have got a case for it and also a strap i think, but never got round to it. Maybe i will do that after this review. Would i buy this again – yes.
So happy i chose this over the flip. The stills are wonderful and the video is excelent. I obtained it a wonderful bag ,a sd card and an added batery, all tooled up and prepared to make films.
Mainly preferred but experienced some silly design and style shortfalls. I acquired this camera largely because of to the reality that i bought a sanyo c40 about eight years in the past and discovered that to be a great digicam, effortlessly the best i had at any time owned. This was bought as an up grade to high definition online video and a quicker, much better result i hoped. The vpc-cg21 does choose really excellent photos and the high definition video clip is very very good in truth and far superior at reduced mild than the c40. The actually silly factors in the new style and design that shouldnt have took place are:-there is no ability socket designed-in, you have to choose out the battery to demand it in a individual charger which is a chore. The memory card slot isnt as easy to accessibility as it must be. There isnt a foundation fitting for a wrist strap (you could insert one particular to the major just one applied for the lens cap)it doesnt appear with a mini-hdmi to hdmi cable so you have to acquire onethe lens cap is just foolish, its a form that only goes on in 1 placement and the lanyard cord that attaches it to the digicam entire body is dressed to the other facet of the camera producing it extremely fiddly to use. They really should have held to a round cap design and style like the c40. I can see they have tried using to ‘jazz-up’ the layout but this is seriously frustrating to use and not a move forward. Features and impression high-quality are terrific the only draw back are the ergonomic and operational concerns outlined.
Uncomplicated to use and for £100 astonishing high-quality. You will will need an more battery though it does chew the ability pretty speedily.
Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG21 – Camcorder – High Definition – widescreen – 10.0 Mpix – optical zoom: 5 x – supported memory: SD, SDXC, SDHC – flash card : This camera gives very good quality picture. The still shots are amazing quality. So easy to use and the size means it fits in your pocket so i tend to take it everywhere. Like other reviews say, battery life isn’t good so buy another spare battery (£4 ish). I’ve still got to work out how to transfer the recordings to a dvd, because each time you stop recording it saves as a separate image on the camera so will be a pain to have to stop and start each recording. I’m hoping there’s a kind of slideshow type setting so it automatically moves through the recordings – but i’m yet to find it. Overall though very pleased with purchase at good price too.
