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

 

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 is a Full HD pocket camcorder that records MPEG-4 video to SDHC flash memory cards. With its ultra-compact size and sleek good...

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.

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

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 Review

 

Here I have the Sanyo xacti CS1 compact full HD camcorder, when I got the question from Matt 'would you like to review a HD camcorder?' to say I was thrilled would be quite the understatement; so as you can imagine I jumped at the chance...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 HD

 

Sanyo's VPC-CS1 is the world's smallest and thinnest Full HD camcorder, measuring just 26.8mm wide. It's capable of shooting 1920x1080 movies as well as snapping 8MP still images, and it can shoot these videos and photos simultaneously. Despite the...

The Sanyo VPC-CS1 swells the ranks of pocket-sized camcorder and provides consumers with a more rounded selection. It has a high feature count, impressive zoom and solid focusing ability. Though, unfortunately, the video performance is often let down...
