Review: Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG102

 

If you can live with its compromises and like the small size, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG102 may work for you.

1080P, 720P 60. 14mp photos. Super small, and very shiny. People are always impressed when I pull this outta my suit coat pocket ; Lens cap is decent. Batteries last 1hr, but are cheap to replace ; External charger is nice, and you can even run camera...

I have had the VPS-CG-10 camera about a year and bought it to replace a Kodak and to copy old movies shown on a screen. The batteries do not last long enough and the optional AC adapter VAR-A3U/A3ex, lised in the Owner's Manual, is not found on the...
