Summary: This camera excels in every way. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. The video quality is excellent. The only thing lacking is an audio input jack but who uses that these days anyway? Great buy! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a HD camcorder.
Summary: I owned this camera for about two years until it got wet at an amusement park. You can find them now for under $150 used in great condition on ebay so it is still a great camera and very affordable. Many of the review offer great detail so I won't be talking about that. I just wanted to say it is quick to switch and record 8MP still photos or 1080P HD video. It also has a 10X optical zoom, however newer cameras offer 30X optical zoom or more.
Summary: I have owned this camcorder/camera for over two years and have been very pleased with the results. I have taken many hours of movies of our grandchild, downloaded the movies to iMovie on the MAC and created wonderful videos. I have recorded live music and public events. I have loaded them onto You Tube with ease. The iFrame technology made working with iMovie and the MAC very friendly. The still pictures are very high quality.
Summary: This camcorder does a great job and is so small and compact that it's easy to bring along just about anywhere. I initially wanted this model because it can take video at high speeds for short bursts; however, the picture quality is so high that I found taking video at normal speed and replaying in slow motion worked just fine.
You won't be disappointed with this camera - much better than Obama.

Summary: One of the best camcorders on the market. With a 16 or 32GB SDHC card you can record literally hours of crystal clear (full 1080HD resolution) video. Also takes exellent 8 Megapixel still shots. I would advise to use only good quality SD cards however (e.g., Scandisk Ultra - class 6 or higher), as there are many cheap ones available that could be a problem.
Summary: I purchased this camera a good while back and tried to use it. All seemed to be okay then I downloaded the video's to my computer and they were terrible. I tried again with the same result so I tossed the thing in the closet for 8 or 10 months. Then, a couple weeks ago I was piddling in my computer and changed something, not sure what it was but now the video's are very good and the sound also. So the problem was with my old computer and not the camera.
IF YOUR THINKING ON GETTING IT.........GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: Truly, the most impressive camcorder i've ever seen.It has EVERYTHING. Not only is the video outstanding, but the picture quality is also as good. VERY RARE to have this good quality in such an affordible camcorder. I bought mine #MINT# for about 240$, and I am loving it. One of the reasons why I bought this camcorder is that it is very universal for mac, and also has alot of settings to adjust your video to your liking. REASONS TO BUY: 1.
Have had camera for a year with zero issues. It's awesome.

Summary: Everything that I wanted in a video camera this Sanyo provides. I have had no problem with the image stability as others have commented about. I think it may just be a stroke of bad luck that a few went out from a lot that was not put together correct in their factory which happens with almost any electronic device. If you read through all the reviews there are more positive then negative.
Summary: It's not a bad little camera, but one big thing I found is it's hard to get a decent steady shot. Most any camcorder your going to need a tripod, and this one is no exception. The image can become shaky even though the zoom is quite smooth. You can really notice the shakiness when at full zoom. The still pictures left a lot to be desired. It has not only an easy mode but the settings most wanna be pro videographers want as well.
