This product was bought for our 11 year old daughter. We were looking for a quality product that will grow with her but not too complicated! The price was excellent the weight and feel of the camera are great and is very comfortable to hold and use....

For whatever the reason, Sanyo decided not to supply a wrist strap! even though they strongly recommend using one and we ourselves would prefer and would normally use one! The strap is not easily obtained on it's own and we have experienced difficulty...

Very handy, Fits in pocket, Crystal clear images, Good Audio Clarity. Love this small gadget.

1. HD Videos do not play on Computers using normal Players like Media Player, Quick Time, Veoh, etc ...Plays with jumping images VLC. Plays fine within the Sanyo and when connected to TV from the Sanyo. 2. Charge doesn't last long. 3. Less optic zoom,...

Excellent price. Very easy to use with good settings. Excellent HD video quality. Very good still images. Very small and compact camera

Battery life short but I have ordered a spare battery. If I was being super critical I have found that on still shots I always seem to get red eye. There is no red eye function but you can edit red eye through the camera.
