Summary: Picture quality is not bad but i cannot see much differance between the sanyo and my panasonic 3ccd.tape machine . as i said the menu controls are impossible to use if you do not have very small fingers. and the still photos take a long time to take. with the grand kids the moment has gone. I also think it is a bit overprced.
Pros: picture movie quality allthough at times you have to pan very slowly to avoid picture judder
Cons: still photos take for ever, controls i.e menues etc are impossible to use if you dont have the fingers of a 6 year old waterproof it may be but it will not stand a drop from two feet
Summary: i was really pleased with this camera until the last day of our holiday in El Gouna,after three snorkelling sessions on the reefs it performed really well,then took it in the swimming pool, started filming it was then i noticed water behind the LCD screen.Rang Sanyo when we got home,customer service rubbish, all they did was give me phone number of their repair man of whom i got no answer.Refund has been paid.Was this just bad luck or are they all defective?
Summary: ..........but depends what you want. As an under water camera/video its pretty good. Its easy to hold and looks good, although the pink colour is probably a bit shocking for some people! It appears to be well made too. And you do get HD recording. The film quality, however, isn't great. I agree still photos are better but you are buying a camcorder here not a camera. For the price, video picture playback can only be said to be average. So it depends what you want.
