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 to upgrade to something that ran with SD in HD! What you get? A tiny little camera which does feel a little 'delicate' and plasticy, but that performs pretty well.
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. Dont get excited about editing on a PC because the format wont let you unless you change the files with a converter which is a time wasting exercise. If you are happy to view raw HD video then this is a good camera for the price.
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. I would say it is a great camera for people wanting a small, lightweight option for videoing their outdoor holidays but not so good for anything else.
