    Excellent still & movie camera (2 in 1), May 5, 2007

    I’ve been reasonably impressed with Sanyo’s offerings in terms of digital cameras in the past and have used the predecessors to the CG6, including the HD1 and VPC-C6. Both cameras are reasonable, but were absolutely hopeless in low light conditions (ISO400), the CG6 has an ISO of 1600 (finally) giving one of Sanyo’s offering standard low light capabilities on par with the other high quality cameras, meaning I could video most of my more embarrassing pub crawls, but not my night club adventures.

    The mic (built into the screen) is surprisingly sensitive, especially to sounds emanating close by, but very resistant to wind and background noise including tapping or brushing of the mic.

    The video quality is 640×480 and is in MP4 format (quicktime) which is comparable in quality to the latest iTunes movie downloads of the same resolution, though you can adjust it to be of lower quality. The photos are 6 megapixels which speaks for itself.

    PC or Mac Connection is done by a standard USB cable which also doubles as a charger. Battery life also seems reasonable as does the charge time, but having never filmed for more than an hour without a recharge I would be cautious on long trips.

    Despite a few minor drawbacks I would highly recommend this camera, it’s reasonably durable and fits easily in ones pocket or a generic soft compact camera case. Personally I take it everywhere, I like to start filming and then pass the camera among friends for a few minutes, after a short while people forget it’s there, after which you’re left with a multiple perspective view of the previous night, very much worth the high price.

    My only complaints would be that:

    1.) It does not take rapid photographs like the Canon range can, nor can it take photographs one after another in rapid succession.

    2.) No built-in lens cap, (there is a removable one that comes in the box).

    3.) Slight noise with still pictures (vastly improved over previous models, but slightly more noticeable than with other brands).

    4.) Awkward to stand upright on a surface, but possible.

    5.) Little warning before the battery runs out.

    Worth the few extra bucks IMHO, June 11, 2007
    D. Bauer (Memphis, Tn United States) –

    I’ve been extremely happy with the new Sanyo VPC-CG65 since I bought it. I first saw the VPC-CG6 (younger brother) at Walmart and instantly loved the small form factor. After doing a bit of research I found the CG65 with is identical except for the H.264 mpeg codec being built-in. I’m an Apple fan and so I knew I wanted that feature! :)

    The camera is great, small, fast, handles the large sd cards perfectly. I plan on putting it to great use in a few weeks during summer vacation. So far, the videos I’ve shot with this camera are terrific. Close-up’s and details are crisp and clear. The auto-focus is dead-on for the most part. I have no complaints as far as that goes. I carry the thing around daily in my pocket..something I couldn’t do with a camcorder.

    I know most photo camera’s can record video..but this is more of a video camcorder that can take pictures. I like the feature that allows you to snap a picture while in the middle of recording a video, but I wasn’t crazy about how it paused momentarily. Could have been related to my card speed (it’s not a fast sd card) but the feature still worked.

    I’d recommend getting additional batteries if using this for extended periods of time. But I’d recommend that for any camera. You can never have too much power.

    As far as cons go, the one time I used the camera for about an hour to record my brother-in-laws wedding, I noticed the camera got kinda warm. I hadn’t noticed that to be the norm, but I was doing a lot of recording that day. And it could have been related to the battery too since I ran it down to empty. That was of course before buying the extra batteries. See above.

    I haven’t played with many of the built-in features yet other than white balance and video quality. I prefer recording everything on the SHQ (Super High Quality) setting but it does record at a pretty high bitrate. I also own an Apple TV and when I try playing the videos in their SHQ format on Atv it has trouble with that. No fault of the camera..I just think the Atv is a bit underpowered for the high bitrate. Regular HQ recording play well on Atv though. I still record at the higher setting so that I have more details when I go to do editing on the iBook. I can always lower the bandwidth during export so it’s not an issue to be concerned with. I don’t think anyone can shoot a video professionally in one take and so the chances of needing to put un-edited SHQ footage on the Atv is unlikely.

    As I stated in the headline, I’d recommend spending the extra few bucks to get the H.264 codec built in. It’s a matter of personal preference but it does save space and it’s quickly becoming an industry standard.

    After vacation I’ll repost with any changes to my opinion, but as it stands now, I’m happy with my purchase.

    Small & very capable, great stills – good video, May 21, 2007
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I’m quite impressed, especially with the quality of stills. And there are many photo and video settings that can be changed.

    After using the camera for a few hours, I need to work out how to hold it. I have average sized hands and firmly holding the camera is tricky, especially when it’s time to push the still or video button. I handled the HD2 and it fits better in my hand, but doesn’t fit my wallet.

    The flash is weak and is only effective within 6 feet, but that’s what I expect from such a small flash.

    The menu system is very intuitive and easy to navigate. I especially like the ability to assign menu functions to the joystick, that’s a great idea. I assigned AF lock, ISO, Flash and Focus to the joystick for quick access.

    I’m a stickler for image quality (acknowledging the obvious limitations of this camera), so everything is set to the highest quality. The video is better than Hi8, but definately not DVD quality.

    I purchased two 2GB Kingston 50x Elite Pro cards, one card came with a free reader. Why didn’t I purchase a 4 or 8 SDHC card? I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket if that basket might be lost or corrupted during a one-time event. Also, a spare battery is a must-have.

    I’ve been reading the forums on this camera, and I looked at lots of sample clips, so I know the limitations of the Xacti, but in the end, the portability trumps video quality. I would feel self-conscious every time I whipped out my old camcorder, but with the CG65 it’s small enough to be inconspicuous and I can shoot more candid videos.

    After all, what’s the point of having a camcorder if you dread lugging it around? The CG65 can’t match the video quality of a dedicated digital camcorder, but you’ll shoot a lot more video…and the stills are excellent.
