Pretty good pocket movie camera

Michelle M. Ress "safoocat", Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: This is the same camera as asin: B000RKSEWO the blue model so you can read more reviews there. It's small enough to fit in your pocket, records to an SD card, also takes still photos and has a nice zoom.

I wouldn't recommend this camera

oldschoolmetalhead01, Ebay
19 September 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Good sound quality, OK picture quality, small, decent view finder screen, easy to use, battery life is pretty good. Cons: Terrible picture quality when the zoom is used, Not compatable with windows movie maker. Over all it's a good beginners camera, but don't expect high quality.

great product

Susi,D, Amazon

  • Summary: this is a great little camcorder/camera. it will fit in your purse or jacket pocket. the two features i love best about it are that it has a timer, so you can set it and hop in the picture yourself & the viewing screen flips so that you can hold it and see yourself for taking vacation pictures with you in them without setting down the camera or asking a stranger to take it. it has auto flash, various date displays and so many more features.

"The compromise is a good one."

TWhit64, CNET
13 June 2010
  • Pros: Excellent video and sound. Very cheap batteries are available - I've got 5 batteries. Records forever on an 8gb card in MPeg4 format.
  • Cons: Photo quality is not as good as a typical digital camera. MP4 format has issues on some devices - sometimes needs to be converted (i.e., mom's photo frame plays the video but not the sound). Uses a manually removable lens cap.

Beware: product flaw causes sudden death

Brian Capouch, Amazon
19 October 2009
  • Summary: I have no complaints with the operation of this camera; in fact, I really like it. But--and this is a big one--be prepared for them to suddenly die for no apparent reason. At that point you have a paperweight, unless you have hundreds of dollars to effect a factory repair. I bought one brand new, and about 3 days after the 90-day warranty expired it went dead.

The best you can get for the price

R. Olsen, Amazon
27 February 2009
  • Summary: Overall, this is a great camera, specifically for the price. I was a bit hesitant at first because I had no idea how a Sanyo would be and I can say its been great. Video footage is very stable, not grainy in decent light, and overall very nice. The sound quality is not the best, but for the most part if it isn't too loud in the place you'll be fine. The camera is also nice.

Sanyo VPC-CG6 Camcorder

climbholmes, epinions.com
11 January 2009
  • Summary: This camera is great for all but the most professional applications. For its price and all its features, you really couldn't ask for more in such a compact design.
  • Pros: Compact, easy to use, good quality pictures/videos
  • Cons: flimsy cloth case, menu can seem confusing at first

Good and Tough.

T. Machamer, Amazon
8 October 2008
  • Summary: I have now dropped this camera 5 times. I mean small drops. This camera was also left in my sailing bag with used diesel filters. I thought that might have ruined it, but no it keeps working. The camera can by charged through its mini USB connector or with provided charger with camera. This comes in handy when you forget the charger. There are a few problems. When recording, the battery does not last too long. I can understand this problem.

Stuck Pixels

Jerry J, Amazon
16 August 2008
  • Summary: February 2008: Purchased the Sanyo VPC-CG6. August 2008: Noticed two of the Sanyo CCD's tiny pixels were stuck on the colors yellow and blue, respectively, causing a tiny yellow and blue square to appear on all recorded videos and still images. August 2008: Sought help from Sanyo Service -- in spite of the fact the 90 day warranty period had expired -- only to receive the comment from a Sanyo Service customer support representative that fixing the camcorder's CCD would...
