  • Summary: It's good. Keep it dry because water will damage it. Loud noises will ruin it to. It gives a slight fisheye view on HD videos. Not a bad camcorder at all.

Only difference from using your iPhone is the optical zoom

Amiram Burg, Amazon
24 March 2013
  • Summary: Good for video, reasonable for daylight photos, lousy for night photos. Saves you the trouble of using two separate cameras, but a good smartphone also does that, so the only difference is that the Sanyo has an optical zoom. Actually, iPhone or Galaxy even take better photos at night.

Fair video quality yet not as easy to handle as appears

6ptstar186, Ebay

  • Summary: Its a decent quality camcorder that is not as easy to control as it appears. The controls are somewhat cumbersome. It does produce fair quality video but dont plan to use the internal memory for video as you will only get a few seconds.

Just OK

SmokeyMike "SmokeyMike", Amazon
17 January 2012
  • Summary: Pros: small, light, memory card slot, full HD, good battery life. Cons: not great (grainy) in low to medium light conditions; file sizes can be HUGE. Its Mpeg4 format can only be played on certain video players - my version of Windows Media Player won't handle Mpeg4 nor will my Irfanview (freeware) player (maybe there's a plug-in available). I had to download Quicktime to play the videos on my PC.

wishing for a higher scan rate on chip

Paul Huenemann, Amazon
7 June 2011
  • Summary: I received the camera in good working order in a timely fashion. Seems to do everything it says it does. Nice video and easy to use. If it's dark to my eye, the video looks dark, in the outdoor light it does really well. All and all a great little camera for the price. Great for home movies and recording the moment. As noted with other reviewers, the motion shake and the lightness of the camera is a bit of problem.

Things to know before buying Sanyo VPC-CG20

Pargev, Amazon
1 June 2011
  • Summary: First of all, the camcorder is just what I expected to see (well, maybe a bit smaller than I expected). It will totally fit in an average pocket. However it is important to know what you get with this purchase and what you need to buy extra to make it complete/usable. The Camcorder comes with: - miniUSB to analog video/audio cord so that you can watch the recordings using the standard analog input on your TV. - miniUSB to USB cord to connect to PC. - Battery charger.

Not sure if it's worth it

Pard ""Somewhere in the High Sierra"", Amazon

  • Summary: The video quality is marginally acceptable, depending on your standards. It's certainly not as good as, say, my Canon HV20 for sure but after extensive testing, my feeling is that the video quality isn't even as good as the GoPro HD or Drift HD and they have non-adjustable fixed aperture lenses.

Sanyo VPC-CG20

Matthew Yong, Amazon
12 September 2010
  • Summary: What I like : The High-Def video is really sharp and the camera is easy to use. What I dislike : Very sad that when the camera was delivered to me, the video focus was defective. The camera could only focus intermittently. It was great when it is working but half way it could not focus properly. Nevertheless, AMAZON refund policy is great (as always). Hopefully the next set that I order will be delivered to me in working condition.

A decent economy camcorder

Andrew G. Lang, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the VPC-CG20 two months ago at Radio Shack. I was looking for an alternative to the "Flip" camera at about the same price. PROS Good digital image stabilization at normal focus. This was the main selling point: Flip cameras provide no image stabilization, so slight shaking of the hand, especially when panning, is a problem. The Sanyo camera will give you better quality video at a similar price.

small camcorder

  • Summary: Great small camcorder, you can take it anywhere. Picture quality is not as good as it is in more expensive camcorders but enough for me.
