Sanyo Xacti VPC CA9

 

Oh ok, let's look at it in a bit more detail. An essential item on holiday, is the camcorder, whether it's to embarrass our friends at some later stage or to have long lasting memories of family holidays with the kids.

Parrot MiniKit Slim Bluetooth Visor Review

 

Overall I really like the Parrot MiniKit Slim. Aesthetically it looks modern and the build quality appears to be decent. Performance wise it didn't let me down once. If you need a hands free kit in your car you could do a lot worse than this one. Will...

Sanyo CA9 review

 

A decent basic camcorder, but no better than its myriad rivals

Waterproof action

Shonky controls, stills no better than camphone efforts

Sanyo VPC-CA9

 

Light weight, clear screen, water resistant, easy to use, good quality videos and pictures (for this price/size range of camera).

Battery life isn't amazing, but that's to be expected when switching between recording and camera. No lense cap means you have to watch out for sticky fingers and it obviously steams up after being in warm water.

Sanyo VPC-CA9

 

Easy to use. Waterproof advantage. Battery life better than older SD model

Still has a battery which needs to be removed to charge. SD model was able to take high quality still image at same time as video, but this not possible with this model (0.9M image only available)
