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.

The compromises start with image quality. The VPC-CG102 gathers images with a 1/2.33-inch CMOS sensor, and encodes moving images to the same MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format as other Sanyo camcorders. Sanyo's MPEG-4 lacks some of the metadata bells and whistles...

It's small

Camera quality is poor- really disappointed. Video quality is average. Flash is poor. Buy 2 separate produts that each do their job properly rather than 1 that tries to do both but in reality does neither.

Really tiny video camera, sits in your pocket nicely.

Battery is very poor. Both main and second replacement battery lasts 30-45 minutes of continuous shooting. My wedding video was a bit cut up! Sound was disappointing on the video, lots of white noise, microphone not directional (doesn't pick up sound...
