Sanyo VPC-CG9 review

 

Sanyo could only provide us with a pink sample of its Xacti VPC-CG9, but thankfully you can choose from three other shades, including black.

This 9MP camera and video camera from Sanyo provides a lot of fun

Fun and easy to use

Doesn't feel very tough, so could be susceptible to breaking easily

Great in the fun stakes, though not the best if top-quality images are what you're after.

Cheap as chips.

High quality stills mode, pistol-grip design has its fans

Poor low-light performance, sub-par video, buttons are too small

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 is a cute standard-def offering that comes with some interesting modes and features. Unfortunately, its poor video performance and annoying control scheme are kind of hard to overlook.

High-quality and Web-optimized video modes available ; Records to SD Cards or internal flash memory ; Excellent menu system with helpful prompts

Poor image stabilization ; Long lag time between still photos ; Difficult to access memory card slot

The CG9 hedges its bets, trying to compete both with high-quality MiniDV camcorders like the ZR950 as well as simple camcorders like the Flip Video Ultra. While it’s easy to use and takes excellent pictures, the video image stabilization shortcomings...

Sanyo VPC-CG9

 

The smallest, cheapest camera on test, but unsurprisingly, it also has the poorest image quality

The CG9 is as easy to use as it is to transport, featuring little in the way of physical controls, though various settings can be changed via the menu. The only frustration we encountered while using the device (aside from the ergonomics) was that the...
