Worst mistake ever! Do not purchase Sanyo electronics!
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.
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. If you're intending to use this camcorder to record your child's hour-long recital or some other lengthy and continuous event, chances are...
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.
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.
