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...

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 Xacti VPC-CS1 pocket camcorder review

 

Sanyo's stylish and ultra-portable HD pocket camcorder

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

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.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 review

 

The world's smallest, thinnest, lightest Full HD camcorder. But does this make it the greatest too?

Full of potential fiddly controls mean it’s not quite as user-friendly as its pocket cam rivals

[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
