Summary: bought for son for 12th birthday. Just what he wanted. Underwater feature is amazing. Wrist strap is essential. Took it to the beach and didn't even have a salt/sand problem. Just rinsed off with it in the shower.
Summary: wasted my money on this one. Stopped working completely after about 4 uses. Not sure if it's the battery charger (bought two extra batteries) or the device itself. Regardless, it's useless now. Kept it dry inside and followed the directions to the letter. It took ok video, but made annoying noises when filming in the water. $170 down the drain! Absolutely no more Sanyo products for me. Never again.
I loved this camera,but first time using it in water it stopped working. I

Summary: I love this camera but the first time I used it in water it stopped working. I called Sanyo company she said did you buy the extented warrenty I said no I was not offered it. She said well it cost 90 an hour to look at it. I said u have got to be kidding me.
Summary: My son and daughter in law loved this for the new baby! They use it all the time. It's easy to operate and the battery life is reasonable. It could be longer. The picture quality isn't as good as some digital cameras but for the price it was worth it. I would recommend this product if you are looking for an inexpensive camcorder and you don't want a lot of bells and whistles. The other nice thing is it is waterproof.
Summary: I bought the VPC-E2 camera in March 2010 and the screen stopped working on Christmas Day 2010. My boyfriend had the VPC-E1 and it broke in less than a year as well. It started filming in a blue hue. It was a fun camera while it lasted. Very disappointed.
Summary: If you're thinking about buying a camera/camcorder - DON"T waste your money on Sanyo's Xacti VPC-E2. It will fail and will cost more to get it fixed then what you paid for it. Our camera was ordered on 12/2/09 and was given as a Christmas gift. It was used for 10 minutes while floating in the water on vacation in St Thomas. Then -the camera DIED!!!! I had owned the camera for about 100 days. I used it twice. I contacted Sanyo for service.
Summary: good thing about the portable camcorder is. it's water proof... that's it. i hate it's picture quality. i bought sony webbie month before i bought this one from here only. sony's picture quality is really good. why can't sony come with a waterproof webbie...??
