Large LCD (3 inches). Good burst mode. Pretty good color.

Noticeable shutter lag. Confusing menus and shooting modes.

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-E6U is a stylish camera with unique features but spotty quality and performance.

The 6-megapixel SANYO Xacti E6 digital camera features a full 3-inch color LCD screen - the largest in its class - which provides an approximately 230% larger viewing area than a 2-inch screen. Such a big screen is ideal for composing and framing the subj

Sanyo Xacti VPC-E6


I must say I have been quite pleased with this camera. Surprisingly the reviews have not been stellar except from everyday users. If you have the chance to pick this camera up it is a very solid choice. I have had mine for about 3 years and has been...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-E6



Small, light, easy auto modes, 3" LCD, smooth shape, internal optics, QuickTime/.mov video, sensible menus, good value to shrewd buyers

What a terrific camera with some innovative and groundbreaking options included. Currently can be had for just over �100 in the UK, this Sanyo piece of kit has lots going for it !

Wonderful 3 inch screen, quick 3 x optical non protruding lens, good quality images and fine movie mode from a stylish compact camera

Lowlight performance is Ok but some red eye is noticeable.Movie mode is memory hungry

Just purchased this camera as a replacement to my long time 3 megapixel. The quality is dramatically improved in this model with both the 6 megapixel resolution in addition to images that are have a complete tonal range when looked at on a histogram....

Whenever I hand my camera over to someone to take a picture, I have to explain the 2-stage shutter. With this camera, I can simply hand it to them and tell them to take the shot. The touch sensor does all of the labor. With the slightest touch of their...
