Was a good little camera
2 February 2013
Summary: I purchased this camera n 2008 and have used it up until mid 2012. The white balance was horrible, always added blue to the picture no matter what you did. The sound was good but no way to add external audio sources which was an ok matter with this camera.
Summary: For the price you pay for this camera, its very good. Portable, fits in your pocket. Photos are impressive under sun light. Not good with little light, which seems to be the problem in low priced cams. Very nice hd video, stability control could be better.
Summary: I got this Sanyo Xacti after wanting a portable camera to take to conventions. On paper it seemed to be perfect - and I have no problem with sound quality, image quality or its other features. They're all perfect for the camera. My issue is usability. This camera heats up extraordinarily fast.
Surprisingly poor video, very narrow field of vision

Summary: I just wanted to get a camera that I could use for YouTube videos and to take decent pictures. I'm not asking for much, and I'm not a videophile. But this camera failed to meet even my low expectations. The photos look faded and grainy, even in bright light, and have that odd digital look.
Summary: I have this camera from july 15th and only could say that it was the best buy in a lot of time. I'm not proffesional, only need a camera for good quality pictures and video, only for home use, and the results are more than I've expected.
Summary: I have used this camera for 9 months now and I like it more and more. I get excellent movies. I have made 8 2 hour movies from around the world. My friends and I enjoy watching them on our 50 inch flat screen TV. The result is amazing from such a tiny camera.
Summary: Yes, iso 400 and above looks like mud, lens is not wide enough, image stabilization is bad and blur's your video, yes you can hear zoom in/out noise, camera zoom is not sensitive, menus sucks, lens cap is a poor desing.
Summary: The size and convenience were nice, but the photos were not good. I mean, the quality is worse than the pathetic camera we're trying to replace which we got as a wedding gift...11 years ago! It's a Fuji FinePix, 2MP, 3x zoom, and we have better photos with it than with the disappointing xacti.
Summary: I don't know much about camcorders (this is my first), but I like this one. It seems to have plenty of manual settings. It actually works pretty well indoors (in low light). At first, I was picking up a lot of noise. I adjusted the ISO setting to darken the image.
