Summary: For 40+ years I have taken photos of deer and other wildlife, reluctant to buy a camcorder for the same purpose. However the SD card simplicity of the Sanyo Xacti sounded worth the risk and has proved to be ideal: * the x27/30 zoom works very well. I have a lightweight tripod.
Summary: Hi All, I was given the task at work of finding a relatively cheap video camera that we could document and analyse our production processes. After looking at several similar cameras we decided that this one ticked more boxes than the others did.
Summary: Has nobody noticed this camera is called Full HD in the title but then as soon as you start to read the description the only resolution that i can see is 1080i, which is NOT full HD and i shall be staying clear of this and any other Sanyo camera.

Summary: I'm a blogger and travel a lot so needed a small lightweight video camera that is also cheap (in case of loss/thief and my insurance refuse to pay) and this camera fits the bill. The two main downsides are battery life but I also purchased two spares batteries :) and the fiddly small buttons which...
