Summary: This has been an excellent camera. Battery life could be longer and more zoom might be useful, but honestly it makes high quality video (in good light) and captures sound well. It's small enough to travel with conveniently and, though it has been dropped many times, continues to function normally...
Summary: my Sanyo VPC-PD2BK is crazy compact! provides great pics and videos especially with it's 3x optical zoom. i originally got this to carry with my Skywarn Weather Spotter gear i use for storm spotting. captures storm clouds and weather fronts perfectly for my amateur needs.
Summary: Chose this as a pocket camera when I realized it's not always such a hot idea to use a cell phone for a camera (and risk losing the phone, and all the contact info in it). Great video quality, easy to use. It also fits nicely in an old Blackberry holster.
Summary: I bought this several months ago for my trip to Egypt. During the trip it did pretty well. The picture and video came out quiet nice.. The sound quality was good, I didn't find any problems with picking up my guide during the multiple trips.
Great all around pocket camera, I highly recommend.

Summary: Like all sanyo xacti cameras an excellent buy great pics sound quality is excellent. I have owned several sanyo camcorders and I have never been disappointed with any of them.

Summary: This camera is great. I was looking for a nice and affordable camera where I can record some of my music gigs. This camera has great audio & picture quality for video and photo for such a small pocket camera. I love it.
Summary: I remember the early days of "portable video recording". My brother bought a portable system in the early 80's. It was a camera about the size of a shoebox, and connected to a "recorder" that was bigger than the camera, and it was HEAVY! Picture quality was sub-VGA. Cost about $1,200.
Loving This Camcorder! Better Than Most Other Pocket Cameras

Summary: This is the perfect pocket camcorder/camera for my needs. I wanted a dual purpose camcorder/camera that I could take with me everywhere. My Canon DSLRs are too bulky to haul around everywhere and would not be allowed in some places because they are immediately recognized as "professional" equipment.
