Summary: I like the camera. It's very convienent to keep in your pocket when you don't want to lug around a bigger camera. The small size and tiny buttons does make it a little hard to use without jiggling it. The built-in light is only good for clode-ups of maybe 3 feet away at the most.
Summary: This camera does an excellent job of recording what it sees. However the field size could be a bit larger, backing away to get a person within it's framesize is a pain. The zoom works well, perhaps a little to quick on the in- out action. It's very easy to carry in a small pocket.
Summary: As one who has been taking videos of the family gatherings, etc., since 1989, I've seen all sorts of equipment. My first camcorder was quite heavy had to be carried on the shoulder while using and had a very short battery life.
Summary: My daughter and I got this together. I wanted it for filming a litter of puppies and my daughter wanted it for make-up tutorials. First, it's cute. We don't use it as a camera but more a pocket video camera. A feature-rich 'flip' alternative. My daughter likes the macro setting with the led light.
Summary: This is my 3rd xacti. I've owned the HD1A and VPC-CG10. The form factor is amazingly small with this VPC-CS1. The video is truly amazing for such a small video camera. Cons: - No flash (there is a LED for macro's, but no flash for indoor pics) - Unlike the VPC-CG10 there is nothing below the lens to...
Summary: I purchased this as im a web vlogger and I needed something new and Hd for not such a pocket killing price. At first touch it does not feel cheap it feels solid. The batters charges out of the device so you cant record and charge but they do sell an ac battery for just that.
Summary: First of all, in my view you should only consider this camcorder if size is quite important to you. Due to the Sanyo Xacti's small size & slim profile (fits into even a small pocket easily), I believe it's unfair to compare the Xacti directly to bigger camcorders that have more room to include...
