While the splash-proof case and tiny design of the Xacti VPC-CA6 will appeal to some, those after good quality video and stills with an easy to operate control setup should look elsewhere.

Splash proof, tiny design

Low light performance, irritating controls, digital still pictures not up to par

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA6

 

Sanyo's VPC-CA6 excels at being small, portable and easy to understand. Using it, however, reveals more than a few flaws in the implementation of its design.

Splash-proof casing ; Small physical size ; Records direct to SD

Buttons are stiff and unresponsive ; Poor in-built microphone ; Focus problems

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA6

 

It's so small and tough that you actually take it with you. Battery is good and stills are very good at 6MP. Video quality is VHS-like. Buy a 4Gb SD card from Ebay and you've got a very useable holiday snapper.

Light and small ; Fast startup ; Simple controls ; Good stills

No tripod mount ; Won't stand up (when taking time-delayed shots, etc)
