Sanyo Xacti E1 Review

 

Sanyo's Xacti E1 is an excellent flash-based camcorder that's also waterproof.

Sleek and durable design, Sharp video and still images, Waterproof to 5 feet, Submersible microphone

LCD washes out in a bit bright sunlight, Doesn't float

Sanyo Xacti E1 review: Sanyo Xacti E1

 

If underwater YouTubing were a market segment, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1 would be

Frequently captures surprisingly high-quality still photos; waterproof.

Awkward, frustrating design; slow focus.

If underwater YouTubing were a market segment, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1 would be the camera to get. But the awkward design and slow performance make it hard to recommend for landlubbers.

Love it!!!!

 

My brother and I both bought these camcorders in blue, and they work great. I even found housings so they can be taken even lower into the depths. They're easy to operate, fun to use, and fully functional. I love the video and photos it takes, and best...

Great camera, but I'd love even longer battery life

 

I'm pleased with the video quality, it looks great at the highest quality setting. I use the camera (mounted on a kayak front deck) to record surf sessions, and there are 2 features that I'd really like to see added for this mode of operation. 1) ...

Fast startup. Great video, great compression

May not be as waterproof as I need. LCD display is more than I need

Well Worth The Investment!

 

I own a Porsche Boxster and absolutely love it. But as the father of three small children, I could not imagine it being our only car, and, as video cameras go, I feel the exact same way about the Sanyo E1. Is it the best video camera you'll ever own? ...

Great underwater footage, small and convenient, surprisingly nice stills

Bad in low light, small zoom, painfully slow shutter lag, slightly unintuitive buttons and menus

I love making videos with this amazing little video camera!

 

I've been thinking about getting into video for years but have always stuck to still photography. I wish I would've made the switch sooner. This camera is great. I've been very impressed with the ease of use and quality of the output. I've jumped into...

small, easy to use, good editing software included, high quality picture, WATERPROOF!, good audio/mic

Can't record video without having LCD screen open so straping the thing to my helmet while mountain biking might be tough

Compact and Versatile

 

I bought this camera primarily for its portability. My preliminary research indicated that it would not be a "great" still or video camera but quality should be acceptable. I spend a fair amount of time at the pool and beach so the waterproof feature...

Small, Easy to use, waterproof (to 1.5 meters), good stills and video, records to SD or SDHC cards

video compression sometimes creates some anomalies - not terrible, but worth mentioning
