    A decent economy camcorder, June 1, 2010
    Andrew G. Lang (Cleveland, OH USA) –

    I purchased the VPC-CG20 two months ago at Radio Shack. I was looking for an alternative to the “Flip” camera at about the same price.


    Good digital image stabilization at normal focus. This was the main selling point: Flip cameras provide no image stabilization, so slight shaking of the hand, especially when panning, is a problem. The Sanyo camera will give you better quality video at a similar price.


    Image stabilization, while good at normal focus, is ineffective when you use the digial zoom (up to 5x), so videos will appear very shaky even with slight movement. The camera will have to be stabilized on a tripod if you’re using the zoom feature.

    If you’re a novice (as I am), Sanyo xacti cameras will require a bit of a learning curve. This is why the Flip line of camcorders is so appealing: they come with their own editing software and are basically plug-and-play.

    Note that video on Sanyo cameras is saved in mpeg4 format which means (since there is no included editing software) you’ll need to convert the files to WMV or another format if you want to use Windows Movie Maker to edit the file. (Any version of Movie Maker for XP or Vista will not work with the mpeg4 format.) If this is your situation, AVS sells an inexpensive video format conversion program which is easy to use.

    LCD screen doesn’t display well in bright light.

    Quality of still photos is poor, but that’s not unusual for a camcorder. This won’t replace your digital SLR camera if you’ve got one.

    I’ve decided to swap this camera for the Panasonic HDC-TM55 which at a higher price tag (about $450) provides an optical (rather than digital) image stabilization feature that will keep the video stable even when you’re using the optical zoom. I’ll give the Sanyo to a relative. It really is a good camera for the price, and its digital image stabilization does work reasonably well at normal focus.

    Just Right for My Use, May 29, 2010

    I bought this dual camera because i am going on a cruise, and I did not want to be burdened by a lot of equipment.
    So far I have used it to take both Hi Definition movies and still pictures.
    The results are good even when viewed on a 40 in 1080i TV.
    I have 16 GB card so i can record up to 2 hours of video or over 4000 still images.
    Please note that the resolution can be reduced by the user.

    Still pictures taken at short distances( Under six feet) show fish eye distortions. This can be corrected by software such as Photoshop Elements.
    Battery life could be better. It appears to be limited close to 1 hour with the supplied 700 MAH battery.
    Does not work as a PC Camera with the Mac.
    No supplied software.

    A few thoughts on Sanyo CG20, July 2, 2010
    D. Safir “Dr.Dave” (Los Gatos, Ca.) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I originally bought the Sanyo VPC CG10 after reading a number of sterling reviews on Amazon, notably by Rolla Gravett and Juan. The camera is fantastic. I already owned a Flip MinoHD, but I was disappointed by its limitations–there are no settings to speak of you can play with, and of course, it is not a still camera. My goal was to find a compact camera which would take both high definition video and take high quality still photos with a built in flash. The CG10 did all of that. When Sanyo released the CG20, the main improvement was going from 30 fps 720p video to 60 fps 1080p video. Now that I have both cameras I am a little disappointed with the 1080 video. As recommended by others, I am using a class 6 SDHC card. The videos I have taken in the highest HD (1080) are obviously much larger files, but they don’t seem to play quite right with Quicktime. I am working on a very new iMac. When I play the 1080 videos in Quicktime there seems to be some jitter and unsteadiness. The exact clip recorded in 720p seems better, very stable, and just as clear to my eye. I also found that when I played the 1080 clip with VLC media player, it played better than with Quicktime without any distortion. Also the viewing screen in the CG20 is a little bit smaller than the CG10. For email purposes, I use MPEG Streamclip to resize my videos. Typically if I take a 20-30 second clip in 720p it is about 15-20 megabytes. I can resize that clip with Streamclip down to about 2-3 megabytes without losing virtually any clarity, thus I can email it easily. The same clip in 1080p is 40-50 megabytes and perhaps too large to resize for email. Again, to my eye I can’t see much difference between 720 and 1080. This parallels my experience with HD televisions, where with the exception of BluRay DVDs, the picture on my Panasonic 50 inch plasma TV (720) is as crisp as any picture I have seen with a 1080 TV. Overall, I think the Sanyo CG10 or CG20 are absolutely the best buy for the money, a fantastic camera that you can and will take anywhere you go. You can get the CG10 for around $120 now, unbelievable value.
