Sanyo Xacti C1 Review

 

Sanyo is een belangrijke speler in de digitale camera markt. Niet zo zeer vanwege het feit dat Sanyo onder eigen merk een lijn digitale camera's in het assortiment heeft, maar wel vanwege het feit dat Sanyo succesvol optreedt als producent voor derden,...

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 EX digital camera was presented last year October in a tête-à-tête with the Dutch press in Scheveningen. As we have experienced before, it takes a long time before the product is actually available on the market. We were given...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2

 

Camcorders are getting smaller and better, though not exactly in that order. What's more, they're getting a lot better at taking still pictures too – Viva la convergence! The new Sanyo X

Expert Review

 

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 is a combination digital camcorder and digital still camera that takes reasonable still images and surprisingly good quality video.

Size, battery life, MPEG quality, useful USB docking station

Included SD card too small, tiny size makes recording stable handheld video difficult

Sanyo's compact VPC-C1 camera is designed more for video capture than stills photography and its styling reflects this bias. There's no viewfinder and the movable LCD screen doubles as an on/off switch. Switching the camera on activates a voice prompt...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-S1EX

 

Purchased for very enthusiastic 8yr old but would be more than happy to use it myself. He quickly familiarised himself with the product and loves it. Would definitely recommend. Fantastic value for money.

None yet.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-S1EX

 

Something that you can put in your pocket. Takes both video and still pictures. You are more likely to take this with because of the size. Cost okay for what it does, but it is a compromise.

Not as good as proper camcorder. Not as good as proper digital camera It's god face recognition but focus goes in and out in moving pictures. You need back up battery as doesn't last long. Difficult at first to get used to buttons for taking still and...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-S7: Takes perfectly good holiday snaps, but...

 

While visiting friends, my rather aged and well travelled point and click camera decided to give up - naturally, I wanted a few happy snappy shots of my holiday, so I rushed out to buy a new one. The Sanyo Xacti VPC-S7 was on sale at the time, and it...

Very quick to start up, good for holiday snaps and other casual situations

USB cable doesn't always work, camera drains battery like no tomorrow and then turns off
