DISAPPOINTING in a word.

A3 "Private Tay", Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: GOT it cheap and it's great that as a still camera, this one comes with Aperture Priority and spot metering Why don't I like it? The shutter release for stills is crap Many times, after I trigger it, the camera doesn't capture any picture It's ok for daytime videos Alas when the sun sets, the video...

to complicated for such a low tech item

G. D. prater "prove it", Amazon

  • Summary: when I read high definition I like to think it is a good quality. I ran my tests outside and have other camcorder to compare quality. The quality of so called HD on the Sanyo VPC wasn;t there. I was very disappointed.

OK, but power button position drops rating two full stars

J. Wells, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is small and light, but the usability is marginal. Finding the power button to turn it on or off is not impossible, but fairly close to it. The power button is flat and can't be felt with your finger.

Neat Camcorder/Camera, but needs a flash

ExProPlayer, Amazon
14 April 2010
  • Summary: Sanyo's new product had two major problems (major enough that I returned the item). First, there is not a flash, only an LED that barely lights up anything even a foot away (pretty much useless in my estimation).

Just received. Nice looking. Doesn't work. :(

Chris Wilson, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice looking product, hard to handle with my big hands. Records for 5 seconds and locks up. Tried 2 SD cards. Back it goes. Should have gone with a Canon. That's what I will get.

A Rolls Royce with a greasy steering wheel

Alien937, Amazon
29 May 2011
  • Summary: This has to be one of the most irritating pieces of tech I've ever laid hands on. It's like a Rolls Royce with grease all over the steering wheel: it looks great, it works great, but it's a nightmare to actually use. The basic shape of the VPC-CS1EX is thin and flat, like a mobile phone.
