Tiny buttons

BW, Amazon
29 November 2010
  • Summary: Nice picture but there are issues. TINY operating button is exasperating, always going to an undesired option. Video is NOT easy to upload to Windows 7 and Nero does not seem to help. Have yet been unable to sync sound with video. Auto white balance is not good for my preferences.

Trade-offs and compromises: choose carefully

sbnoble, Amazon
15 August 2010
  • Summary: This camera is full of trade-offs: great features which are often crippled by poor implementation. I very nearly returned it, but ultimately it is getting the job done: taking pictures and videos of my 2 year-old and newborn for online viewing by friends and family.

Amazing picture but...

B. Pyro, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: I went from a Panasonic GS320 to this camcorder. The Sanyo blew me away with its picture quality and it cost less than the GS320. I liked the Sanyo alot and it was very easy to use.

Not bad for $300, but not great

Artichoke Sap, Amazon
2 June 2010
  • Summary: Pros: * Small, fits well in hand * Controls easy to reach and use * Good battery life * Close viewfinder to "sleep," wakes quickly upon reopening * Uses standard (and cheap!) SD cards for recording * Decent zoom range; gentle use of the zoom toggle allows for very gradual zooming if desired.

Paid $329 Its an excellent camcorder for this price

P-Square, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • Summary: Pros: 1. Excellent photos(useful as a digital camera) 2. Good value for the money( $329 - dollar three two nine) Cons: 1. Poor auto-focus. 2. Very poor image stabilization. If I zoom an object or a person > 25ft, the image shakes and anything over 50ft, it shakes and jerks really hard.

Good price but with several flaws

Sean, Amazon
13 May 2010
  • Summary: I paid $1200 for my first SONY Hi8 camcorder in 1994 and I bought this camcorder based on its price tag and stellar hardware specifications like the 1080p at 60fps, big 1/2.5" CMOS sensor, a relatively fast lens f2.0-f2.8 and reviews commending its good low-light performance.

Decent camcorder for the price

pika2000, Amazon
25 April 2010
  • Summary: Pros: 1. Records in iFrame format. iFrame is just a specification made up by Apple for recorded movies to be more iMovie friendly. It uses the standard H.264 video codec and AAC audio codec.

Not very happy with it... autofocus problems ruins lot of footage

Enrique Beracasa, Amazon
27 February 2010
  • Summary: Pros: - Size and weight - Handy controls - Nice zoom - Battery life - iFrame makes it Mac compatible and friendly (it was my main reason to buy it) Cons: - Autofocus problems means lots of ruined footage (this happened during a ski trip) - Microphone sensitivity is less than adequate - Photos are...

Poor HD low light video quality - missing frames

filmtheory "filmtheory", Amazon
4 February 2010
  • Summary: Why is it so hard to find a low priced, high quality HD camcorder? So many manufacturers say their camcorders are "HD" but I've found out that doesn't mean "high quality" - this Sanyo VPC FH1A was mediocre at best in terms of video quality.

Still trying to read the fine print

R. Johnson, Amazon
21 October 2009
  • Summary: The manual is a pain. Very small print and you have to flip back and forth to try and understand what they are trying to tell you. I have lost photos and movies because of this.
