Sanyo Xacti CG6 Digital Camcorder

 

Before I get to the camera samples, I want to take a moment and show off just how small and easy to use the CG6 is.As you can see, the CG6 is about the same size as myLogitech MX Revolution Mouse. It is even smaller than I anticipated from looking at...

Great Little Cam

 

I have a 8GB SDHC, we have taken this to Disney, parades, the beach, all around. It has been dropped, rained on and it is still running. I have had good luck with Sanyo products and this has given us great movies. Could also have better software for...

Small you can hold it like a pistol, and your thumb right on the buttons (Video, Still, Zoom) ; takes great movies, and stills .. it will even take a still during the movie. Sound capture is good from quiet voices to bands ; playback of pics and movies...

batteries could have a longer life, I bough 6 generic ones from online auction, so i could have all day recording. I battery is a little more then an hour of recording

Sanyo VPC-CG6 Camcorder

 

I originally purchased this camera for my wife for Christmas last year. The small, light-weight design first caught my eye, as did the sale price of $150. To say this camera is small is an understatement, it is down right tiny. When I ...

Compact, easy to use, good quality pictures/videos

flimsy cloth case, menu can seem confusing at first

SANYO VCP-CG6 (a micro camcorder & camera that uses SD cards)

 

My buddy, who always has the newest, coolest electronic gadgets showed me his CG6 last weekend. After using it for an hour... I SIMPLY HAD TO HAVE ONE! I, who NEVER owns current technology, swore I'd NEVER buy a camera or camcorder that is bulky or ...

Only $200. at WalMart, and it takes GREAT movies, and good quality pictures

It's so small, I often hit the power button accidentally. A little cumbersome

Excellent Xacti CG6 Digital Camcorder - Blue

 

I am very happy with my new Xacti camera and I recommend it for anybody who does not need professional movies and pictures. It is very slim and easy to use. It does not have a hard disk or a mini DVD storage, but the SD/SDHC is enough. SDHC goes up to...

The smallest in its class. Great colours in good light both for movies and pictures.

pictures and movies in low light environment have some noise

Great little gem

 

I bought this with some trepidation, generally being of the " if it sounds too good to be true, it generally is " persuasion. 6MP digital still pictures AND high quality 640x480 video on a par with MiniDV camcorders? A new compression format that ...

Very compact, intuitive menu, good still images, great video, wow factor

More lens flare than I'd like, no hoodNeed powerful PC for editing software

Not so good

 

I suppose that the big advantage of this camcorder is the portability. But the quality both of photo and video recordings are quite poor. Video in mpeg4 has too many artifacts. Photo images looks not so fine because of bad bokeh, strange in camera...

compact, easy to use, video and photo in the one device

poor picture and video quality
