Summary: This camcorder is a jewel in my hands. I have taken tons of pictures, videos and many kind of unbelievable event recorded. I am very pleased with it. I got this camera as a present and was my first digital camera and I am so very happy.
Summary: I love this little thing. It takes great pics. Videos are ok, the mic captures more sound from the person holding it than from whatever it is videoing. I really like that it has a tripod mount and that the screen swivels. So versatile.
Summary: We have had this camera for a while without any major issues. I wish the battery lasted longer (get extras) and it had a regular mini USB connector. I don't understand why Sanyo felt the need to make it without a standard USB hook up. I would still buy it again.
Summary: I have had one of these for several years and I love it. It is truly pocket size and very comfortable in the hand. I use a very famous brand of camera that is a lot larger and heavier and I really have a hard time telling the photos apart without really enlarging them.
Summary: I bought my Xacti about a year and a half ago on Lightning Sale. It was a serious steal. It was probably the best impulse buy I've ever made on here (and I've made a lot). It takes beautiful crisp photos and great video.
Summary: I have own a Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 9MP Flash Memory Camcorder with 5x Optical Zoom bought from Amazon in 2008. I love it except it has a short battery life. You only get about an hour of charge if you do any video and/or zooming. Very disappointing. I am getting ready to buy a few spare batteries.
Summary: This is a nice little cam. I see it as a step above a cell phone video. The thing I like about it, is its portability and FAST ready. You can go from having the camera OFF to Recording video in seconds. The two things I do not like: 1) If you lose the USB sync cable... you are in trouble!!
Buyer Beware! Short Warranty and Terrible Service.

Summary: This product comes with a very short 90-day warranty and terrible phone and web site support. I did not pay attention to how long the warranty period was when placing my order in Thanksgiving 2008. Big mistake. I used the camera only on vacations and holidays.
Summary: Update 11-12-09 3 stars The indoors natural light pictures and video this takes is unacceptably poor so I returned it. If this is used outdoors only, or with flash indoors, it takes fairly good pictures and nice video. For this price you might look elsewhere like the Canon SX110 series.
Summary: Bought this camera expecting all listed features to work.This camera takes fair vidios,if you don't move to much, fair still pictures but won't print date on photo copies or on images transfered to computer.Contacted Sanyo and after 4 or 5 emails back and fourth their last reply was that it will not...
