Great Design, Good Quality Video

Summary: This little Sanyo doesn't shoot HD video, but the quality is very good nonetheless. It's a great fit for an average-sized hand and very easy to keep steady. The overall design is solid, and it produces great color. It picks up sound remarkably well, too. Forget shooting stills with this little video camera, though. They're better than nothing... but not an awful lot better.
Summary: I got this as a gift for my relative during his wedding. It's a great camera/camcorder. It's highly pocketable and takes great pictures as well as movies. The movies get stored as MOV files (MPEG4), which cam be viewed with Apple QuickTime or a bunch of other players. While I loved the form factor, it is sometimes a little too small and the buttons are a little tricky if you have a fat thumb.
Summary: This is the absolutely slickest camcorder I have ever owned. It is very simple to operate, and the instruction manual actually makes sense ! I have made stills, and videos, uploading both to my computer and onto the Internet without a problem. This camera would be a bargain at twice the price.
Summary: I've had this for about 2 weeks now. WOW! I am really impressed with the video quality of this hybrid camcorder. I have since taken a bunch of videos and burned it to a DVD using the included Ulead software. I was blown away by the video quality. I owned a Panasonic MiniDV camcorder before and you just can't compare the 2. The Panasonic was really dull and bad. On this one, videos are stored in an SD card.
Summary: First of all, I am a novice video camera user. My first priority was to have an easy to use video camera that would take good video that was easy to transfer to a PC. After reading the reviews of this and several other cameras I decided to purchase this camera. The camera has met all of my expectations. It is so easy to use and so easy to transfer the video to a PC. Using a free online video converter I was also able to use Windows Movie Maker to edit my video.
Summary: I just got it today and started shooting and having fun with my children, video quality is better than I expected, audio is good too and the best of all, my family in south america were enjoying the videos just a couple of minutes after I shot them... the size is unreal and it's really easy to use.
Summary: Considering it's small size (it fits in the palm of your hand) I had my doubts about this, but it has turned out to be the best camcorder I have ever owned. At its highest setting it's video quality is excellent, and there is just no matching the convienence of a camcorder that fits in your front pocket and can be brought out at a moments notice and turned on by simply flipping open the LCD screen.
Summary: I've been extremely happy with the new Sanyo VPC-CG65 since I bought it. I first saw the VPC-CG6 (younger brother) at Walmart and instantly loved the small form factor. After doing a bit of research I found the CG65 with is identical except for the H.264 mpeg codec being built-in. I'm an Apple fan and so I knew I wanted that feature! :) The camera is great, small, fast, handles the large sd cards perfectly.
Summary: I'm quite impressed, especially with the quality of stills. And there are many photo and video settings that can be changed. After using the camera for a few hours, I need to work out how to hold it. I have average sized hands and firmly holding the camera is tricky, especially when it's time to push the still or video button. I handled the HD2 and it fits better in my hand, but doesn't fit my wallet.
Blown away by features...but not by implementation

Summary: I should preface what follows with the statement that I bought this to replace an "ancient" miniDV camcorder - the original Canon ZR, which has less than stellar autofocus and low-light performance. Even so, I enjoyed using it thoroughly, but was getting tired of the weight and, more importantly, the hassle of downloading from tapes to my computer. Even with Firewire, a thankless and time consuming task.
