Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 pocket camcorder review

 

Sanyo's stylish and ultra-portable HD pocket camcorder

Stylish and ultra-compact design, good outdoors video performance, 10x optical zoom

Picture quality suffers in dim lighting, controls are a bit fiddly for people with big hands

Despite a poor low-light performance, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 remains a decent little camcorder. It looks great, comes with some nice features and takes attractive video in optimum lighting.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1

 

Sanyo is not a brand that can be immediately associated with a clever HD camcorder. But when one is on the outside of the pack and you want to get into an already crowded market, the logical solution is to design a better device which is exactly what...

This is a well designed camcorder that has a lot going for it. Highly functional it is easy to use and has a good battery life

The Xacti VPC-CS1 model that I had was shiny silver that left finger marks on the surface. I would prefer a matte finish
