Summary: I really like this little camera - it's lightweight and fairly intuitive to use. For capturing video it's great. However, the battery isn't brilliant so you need to recharge it as often as you can (1 day of regular use seems to be about average for me) and unless you're taking photos of landscapes...
Summary: The Sanyo VPC-GH1EX-B boasts 1080i widescreen video capture and a 14Mp Camera. When we watched the video reviews on Youtube (even though youtube reduces video to 720i), we were very impressed, we'd been using an awful panasonic tape video cam to record our little one's first few months and we wanted...
Excerpt: I have had my Sanyo Xacti VPC-Gh1 for 6 months now and basically you get what you pay for. The quality of the video is higher than the packaged item however you will need tiny fingers to do editing on the camera and a bundle of patience.
Summary: This HD video and still shot camera is small and light and works well with great image quality in video and still shots. We use a 2x Sandisk 8GB 20MB/s Extreme Video HD SDHC Card (Class 6) for data card storage and it does not drop any frames. Very happy with this Sanyo HD camera.
Summary: I bought this to take on a skiing holiday and used it before hand, to find that the audible warning 'Low Battery Power' (or 'baddery' as she's American) sounded after only about 6-7 minutes filming.
Summary: Video Picture quality was not as good my standard definition DV Camcorder I was looking to replace. 14MP still shots were not as good as my 8MP camera. I got a lot of blurring in still and video when the subject made a movement.
Summary: I cannot review this item as it never turned up in time for my holiday! I aid for next day delivery and it took about 10 days to turn up. I ended up buying a camera from Dixons at Heathrow airport on my way to my holiday.
Faultless HD quality in outdoor light...not good indoor.

Summary: The camera is VERY small compared to some of the other camcorders out there. But this could be a good thing. However, it does feel a tad light and plasticky. Video quality is superb in outdoor light but very poor indoor lit.
