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: I've been using this camera for about six months now. It makes shooting decent video so incredibly easy. The results are probably just good enough for both pictures and video that it makes it worth it for me. There is a trade off for quality here.
Summary: Nice camcorder, very small and the video quality are great for everyday use. Taking pictures is very easy, but when you hit the shutter, there is a one second lag while the camera switches from video to picture.
Summary: There were some people who really didn't like this camera and some that did. So I was worried about buying it. After getting it, I think they were both right, but maybe not why you would think so.
Summary: Very happy with the picture and movie quality, using it mostly for family. The size and shape of this camera are very nice. I bought a small padded camera case and keep it in my purse all the time. It also takes nice still pictures so it's the only camera I carry now.
Summary: The camera is exactly what I was expecting for - beautiful, little camcorder, small enough to carry around most of the time (which was the reason I bought it) with video quality ok for most of the situations.
Summary: I bought this camcorder as a backup to my Panasonic Mini DV. This is my first experience with flash card memory so I was not prepared for the differences between it and mini DV tape. I think this is a great camera. The clarity of the videos I have taken so far are impressive.
Summary: I recently purchased the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 after doing a lot of careful review and comparison with several other SD camcorders. After a week's use of the Sanyo Xacti I am very pleased with my purchase.

Summary: The Sanyo Xacti CG9 is a solid 'Entry Level' camcorder for the beginner or average user. The camcorder shoots nice video actually when its on the 60 fps mode. Keep in mind that its always good to shoot with a good amount of light.
