Summary: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this camera for everyday easy use :) I absolutely love that it can do a still picture while it videos! It takes great pics however the flash needs more oomph! Other than that I have very little to complain about! Mine lasted 4 years and then I upgraded just because I wanted to :) I've passed the camera on to my oldest child and he now loves it. The convenience of the way you hold it and pressing the buttons!
Summary: Any camera with you is better than one not with you. This camera is easy on the pocket and takes great pictures, but indoors pictures are somewhat lacking. It does have a flash. But video indoors can be grainy. This works great as our second camera, for our aspiring camera buff son. It can hold lots of video due to its great compression with minimal quality loss.
Summary: Easy to use. I own VPC-C4 but the LCD is gone. To fix it will cost me about $100. I bought this to be able to use all parts I have such as charger, batteries with the same money. The 6 Mega pixels is enough for me to get the pictures and the thing I need. You can record voice as well. I am satisfied with it so far.
Summary: I think a lot of people underestimate this camera, i bought this for 250.00 at radio shack around Christmas of 2007 on sale, also the display. The warranty was about 55.00 dollars for two years. I think that a lot of users just don't know how to use this camera. If you go into the settings and change the filters, or image size or even the mode, auto,fireworks, sports, etc. I typically use the sports setting making picture virtually clear.
Summary: I bought this camera because I was hoping for a small, portable camcorder that would also take okay pictures. I brought it on a family beach vacation for a week and returned it as soon as I got back. First of all, I should have tried the water resistant/proof model instead - I don't know what I was thinking. The camcorder and the camera are both pretty good in sunlight/outdoor situations. They pretty much stink indoors or if you need to use the flash.
Summary: I bought this camera after using a Sony MiniDV (very small one) camera over 8 years. The image quality of Sanyo is horrible compared to my old Sony under any condition: daylight, night etc. However price, size and easy operation makes this camera a winner as you can have it with you all the time. So if you want to use this camera as a second camera for everyday use go for it, but this is not a serious replacement to a high-end camcorder.
