Summary: This is a very good waterproof camera producing excellent video footage and still photos. It's also possible to take a still pic while filming although this can result in a temporary pause in the recorded footage.
Summary: I bought this camera and was very happy with it until it developed a fault. Unfortunately this happened 1x month after the warranty ran out and I was unable to get support or help from Amazon or Alcam to repair. Sanyo Customer service would not even reply.
Summary: I have been looking for a small portable camera to take snowboarding, rockclimbing etc for some time and have found this sanyo camera to be an excellent choice. It is relatively small in size and fits easily into a pocket or bag, so uses much less space than having a seperate camera and video...
Summary: Shame I didn't buy it a week later and save £25, but hey! This camera has strengths and weaknesses. Given the price, the weaknesses are easy to overlook, as you're getting a 6mp stills camera and camcorder, AND it's waterproof. These features alone persuaded me it was worth getting one.
Summary: Much better video quality than anticipated. Controls could be more user friendly. Battery life a bit short but quick charge system. Advise to buy at least a second battery. Not great video in dimmer lighting. Would recommend it for all round family use. Good value product.
Summary: I had a look out for a waterproof camcorder for ages. I do a lot of river kayaking and sea kayaking and need a compact waterproof camcorder/camera for that. This one is just the deal, I can film and take photos and the quality is pretty good.
Summary: You just can't get an easier camera to use. You literally point and press the the video or the photo button! There aren't loads of buttons crammed on it although there is an extensive menu built into it, for example editing pictures, removing red-eye etc.
Summary: I LOVE THIS THING! Just got back from an amazing 30s to Mars gig. The camera was great. Being able to zoom in and out (optical zoom) while filming is brilliant. Less than ideal circumstances in a manic gig but the picture and sound quality were surprisingly good.
¡Ojo con los modelos Xacti! se estropean facilmente

Summary: Hulas. Es una video-cámara ya antigua, pero me gustaría avisar a futuros compradores de esta marca. En su tiempo compré está video-cámara, por aquel entonces revolucionaria pues era la primera (junto a una panasonic también muy mala) que soportaba sumergirse completamente en el agua sin que se...
Pros: ninguna, aconsejo no comprar nada marca Sanyo
