Worst mistake ever! Do not purchase Sanyo electronics!

Neuman, Amazon
24 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this craptastic video camera last year. At the time, it had all the features that I wanted and was priced within my budget. I really thought that Sanyo could make a quality camera for a good price. This camera does do lots of things, but it does non of them well.

Horrible Camera

Alaina Edmondson, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera broke after 2 months of use. I only recorded videos at a maximum of 5 minutes. When I let the battery get too low I charged charging it and I never have been able to get it on since.

Loses 10 seconds of video every 22 minutes

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 December 2009
  • Summary: As others have pointed out, the Sanyo VPC-FH1 (and VPC-HD2000) will lose about 10 seconds of video every 22 minutes (or so) when the file size hits the 4Gb limit for the FAT filesystem. At this point, the camera opens a new file and loses about 10 seconds of video in the process.

Cheap, But Overheats

M. Younger, Amazon
15 July 2009
  • Summary: In theory this camcorder seems like a dream come true. Unfortunately in practice, it has one major fatal flaw - it overheats often and automatically shuts off.

*was Best Camera for the money

C. Orlando, Amazon
15 July 2009
  • Summary: Let me preface this by saying I am not a Professional. I do however take pride in my work as a hobbyist. I have had several cameras, and my specialty is dSLR's and still photography. I was looking for a decent camera to shoot sports and this is it: 1080p at 60fps is perfect.
