Very disappointing overall

  • Summary: Pros: - Pretty small. (easily fits in a girls purse) - Video is average for 720p. (Remember, this is not a full HD camcorder) - Very easy to take video - Input ports are placed quite well Cons- - Camera photos are worthless due to poor quality.

Decent for the price.

  • Summary: I just got this camera from Amazon yesterday. I was looking for a camcorder that had a couple of features in particular: HD (at least 720p), HDMI output, some sort of decent optical zoom, some sort of memory card capability, and a reasonable price. The Sanyo VCP-TH1 fit the mold.

You might find a camera with better recording.

  • Summary: I wished this camera did not pushed the envelope in the 30x optical zoom. We tested this and on play back the picture was very granular and shaky. I mean really shaky. You will need a tripod to reduce the shaking effect.

Good Choice for an Inexpensive Upgrade to HD, Good for Beginners Also. Others Might Want to Think Twice

  • Summary: I waited five months to review my Sanyo VPC-TH1 so that I could get an accurate representation on the pros and cons of the camera, and I'm glad I waited. I was a skeptical when I first began using it -- taking videos of my newborn son, who turns six months tomorrow already!

Not the best by a long shot (with full pan!), but offers decent value

  • Summary: This is certainly not for those who need truly fine images. Canon and Nikon offer that, at a rather steeper price. But for those needing a basic little digital video camera to take shots of their kids to send to friends or put stuff up on youtube, it does that and more at a fair price.

Looks cooler than a Flip, but that's about it

  • Summary: As mentioned elsewhere , this cam is not really good indoors unless you've got a LOT of light, and I mean a LOT like Clark Griswold at Christmas. I don't know what they mean by image stabilizer, because as far as I can tell, this looks like video shot from any other camera aside from the HD aspect.

Good bang for your buck!

  • Summary: First of all, I am not a camcorder pro. The last camera that I bought was an old Panasonic MiniDv and I was perfectly happy with it, but the transfer process became tedious and I started looking for a Flash Memory or a Hard Drive camera.

Not A bad camera, but a few tradeoffs

  • Summary: This is my third foray into the world of inexpensive HD cameras. About two years ago I bought a similar sized and priced Sony model - and I like the Sanyo much better. The Sony used tape, which was less convenient, and the interface to my computer was terrible in comparison to the Sanyo.

We were looking forward to it. Now it's in the junk drawer.

  • Summary: I came away very disappointed in this Camcorder. In fact, I've put it away and gone back to my Canon Powershot. 1. It is horrible in low light conditions, with massive discoloration and noise. Low light means anything that isn't 100% sun.

Waste of money!!!!!

Michael Salins, Amazon
6 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought this thing for the price and the fact that it was HD. You need to remember that just because something shoots in 720p doesn't mean it shoots a good image. The only way I was able to get a decent picture out of this thing was to shoot outside in bright light and even then the image wasn't as...
