Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 Camcorder Review

 

With its Full HD recording capability, optical zoom lens, and ultra-thin design, the Sanyo VPC-CS1 ($299 MSRP) definitely looks good on paper. Unfortunately, these impressive specs fail to displace the fact that the camcorder has a number of remarkable...

Review: Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1

 

While extremely portable and crammed with attractive features, Sanyo's Xacti VPC-CS1 can be difficult to use and produces mediocre video.

The camcorder's performance is disappointing because the specs look reasonable. The 1/5-inch CMOS sensor is small, but the camera encodes video as MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 files in a variety of resolutions, data rates, and frame rates (though not the film-like...

Sanyo VPC-CS1

 

Impressive specs on paper fail to offset remarkable design flaws and very cheap construction

Good color accuracy

Blurry low light images; Very cheap construction; Bizarre design choices

Sanyo Full-HD Dual Camera Xacti VPC-CS1 - HardwareZone.com

 

As light and small at 142g as it is chic (check: glossy and pink), the 8-megapixel Full-HD Dual Camera Xacti VPC-CS1 also comes in a unique ergonomic shape that makes it easy for users to shoot on-the-go.

Sanyo's stylish and ultra-portable HD pocket camcorder

 

Despite a poor low-light performance, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 remains a decent little camcorder. It looks great, comes with some nice features and takes attractive video in optimum lighting.

Stylish and ultra-compact design, good outdoors video performance, 10x optical zoom

Picture quality suffers in dim lighting, controls are a bit fiddly for people with big hands

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 review

 

Sanyo has thrown down the gauntlet to pocket-size camcorders everywhere – its VPC-CS1 is its slimmest and lightest yet to capture 1080i video. The CS1 is a mere 26.8mm wide, so really is compact enough to take just about anywhere. It's one of Sanyo's...

[Review] Sanyo Xacti DMX-CS1

 

The DMX-CS1, offered in three different flavors (Green, Pink and silver), is a stylish camcorder. Lightweight, ultra-slim, this new device should mainly seduce ladies. You will be able to bring it anywhere, and let it slide into your bag.

Sound Zoom technology, Lightweight and thin, Different recording mode, SDXC-compatible, Perfect for women, Multi-Language

Absence of Lens cover, Poor performance in Low light (Photo and Video), Difficulties to navigate in menu with the 4 direction pad, Pictures mode useless, Image stabilizer could be better, 1080i and not 1080p
