Great movies, not so great pictures

Summary: My wife and I are expecting a baby, and I got this camcorder because I was looking for something small. This camera is very small and portable, smaller than many cell phones, and that was its main selling point for us. That said, I was not expecting great video quality from it.
Summary: We owned the previous Sanyo Xacti C5 and thought it was great. Since my son needed a camera for college, we sent him off with the C5 after we purchased the C6. While they look quite similar and noticeably, the C6 has been upgraded to 6 megapixels, I can tell you that the quality of videos and stills...
Summary: I like this because it is small and ergonomically well designed. I am keeping it. However, there are many tradeoffs and issues that anyone should note: 1. The movie function is better in quality than stills for almost all conditions. 2.
Summary: I will start by saying that this is a wonderful item. I love the idea of having a video and picture camera in one little gadget. My brother has the previous model and I felt in love with it so I bought the C6 which comes with better features.
Summary: In theory, this camera is perfect. Fits into your pocket. Video quality is definately good considering it records in the compressed format of MPEG-4. Pictures are good if you know how to finesse it. Perfect all around anytime camrea, right? Here's the thing. I got the camera mainly for video.
Summary: This camcorder has an excellent form factor and conveniently transfers clips to PC via USB. However, the camera picks up the sound of its own zoom and auto-focus, which makes the video unacceptable in my opinion. The clicking and whirring is louder than the level of normal conversation.

Summary: This is a camcorder for the digital age. Tiny, multi-functional, and flexible. No ancient-technology magnetic tape. As with any product on the leading edge, there are many shortcomings. Let's dispense with the obvious. This device is all about compact go-anywhere flexibility and ease.
Summary: Pictures quality is mediocre. Night video is terrible. Stills for night shots, again unacceptable. Never should supplement this for a regular camcorder. If you are into small gadget high tech toy camcorder, buy yourself an Apteck MPVR. Takes pretty good shots, same size as this, and costs just $200.
