Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 camcorder - Pocket-lint

 

Decent video camera with still image capability though it's much more accomplished at recording moving images

Small, good video quality

Design not for everyone, average stills

For a quick point-and-shoot video camera the Sanyo CG10 is a nifty little camera. The styling might not suit and not being able to stand the camera up without a tripod is a pain, but overall the end results are good.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 review

 

The creamy white and black incarnation of the latest high definition Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 model remains desirably attractive and portable too at a weight of 188g with rechargeable lithium-ion battery and card inserted.

The attractively styled Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 with its uniquely comfortable gun grip is both fun and simple to use. It produced decent stills and offers a good video resolution, though not at full HD. The generous onboard memory makes it good value, but...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10

 

Although the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 digital camera and camcorder hybrid range has long dared to be different with its pistol grip styling and upright shooting, in present company it's almost conventional.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10

 

Slimline pistol grip Sanyo camcorder with a 10-megapixel stills mode and 720p video recording

Good cost/performance ratio, 10-megapixel stills mode, small and stylish

5x optical zoom, sub-par low-light performance, pistol grip isn't for everybody

If you're a fan of pistol grip camcorders, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 is one of the best-value HD options on the market. It's compact, stylish and capable of taking some impressive video and photos.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 review:

 

In an attempt to create a new category of devices, Sanyo dubbed its latest Xacti camcorder models "dual cameras," designed to be equally adept at shooting movies and still photos. With the VPC-CG10, the company certainly got the design and features...

Very good 720p HD video for its class; 5x optical zoom; nice LCD; full featured for an inexpensive minicamcorder.

Component cable not included; slow AF, still-camera performance; poor photo quality; pistol grip not for everyone.

Sanyo's dual-camera Xacti VPC-CG10 has the design and features to easily shoot both HD-quality movies and 10-megapixel photos, but slow performance and mediocre photos keep it from being a solid do-it-all device.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10

 

Includes flash for stills ; Highly configurable for a pocket camcorder ; Takes still pictures ; Removable media

Video is over-saturated ; HD cable not included ; Getting the best video requires playing with manual settings and even then results may be no better than a competing one-button pocket camcorder

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10EXBK HD Dual Camera

 

Sanyo's entry-level portable camcorder is very portable indeed, but suffers with some design and implementation flaws.

Extremely compact ; Decent quality stills

Slow capture times ; Sits poorly on small tripods ; Average video quality

The VPC-CG10EXBK delivers a product that's not exceptional value per se, but it's equally not horribly flawed for what Sanyo's asking for it. For those who just want tiny snapshot video in a unit that's very easy to carry around it could be a good buy.

Review: Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 pocket HD camcorder

 

Pocket-able HD camcorder sports lots of options but compromises on quality.

The $200 Xacti is a pistol-grip style camcorder that comes in black or pink. With its flip-out 3-inch LCD, extensive system of menus, 5x optical zoom, electronic image stabilization, ability to shoot 10 megapixel stills (with flash, if desired), and...

Sanyo VPC-CG10

 

At heart, a slimmer, simpler version of the VPC-HD2000 we reviewed earlier this year

Excellent color accuracy; Good lowlight color & noise scores

Poor lowlight sensitivity; Mediocre sharpness

Whatever camcorder you might be looking for, the Sanyo VPC-CG10 (MSRP $200) is a bargain. It’s the same price as the Flip UltraHD and only $20-$50 more expensive than other ultracompact camcorders. It may not be as easy to use as these competitors, but...
