To meet the increasing demand for high-definition equipment globally, from 2009, Sanyo's Xacti Dual Digital Camera line-up is designed to record high-definition video. High definition comes in two primary types: 720p and 1080p. Sanyo's VPC-CG10 compact HD model is compatible with 720p (1280 x 720) and is able to record at 30 frames per second. It also takes HD-quality photos, putting high definition into the palm of anyone who uses a Xacti Dual Camera.

Key features of the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10


HD Video
The VPC-CG10 employs advanced MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression technology to produce video files that are easy to handle on the web or on your PC. Despite being compact enough to carry about anywhere, anytime, the CG10 is capable of shooting high-definition 720p video.



HD Photos
The handy and compact VPC-CG10 captures 10-megapixel photos just like those taken with a dedicated digital camera. It can even record higher-resolution images at up to 12 megapixels, using real-time interpolation. Meanwhile, the upgraded Face Chaser function can keep track of up to 12 face



HD Photos
Thanks to the ISO-standard MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, video files are as easy to handle as photo images shot with a regular digital camera. It's quick and easy to save files on a PC and upload them onto a web page to share with friends and family.

Ive been traulling the world of simple camcorders for a while now , I wanted a simple camcorder that took good quality film and take a resonable photo in one small plastic box . I also wanted and this is the big one , to work on Apples iMovie 08 with out converting pescki files from one to another. Well I think I've found it .I took a deep breath and ordered one of these the CG10. Video good , Photos are good , easy to use, plastic yes , small , well priced and most of all plug in via usb and it automatically fires up imovie 08. Files go on and hay presto film ready for editing !!! SUPERB. So if you have a iMac with iMovie 08 and are looking for a Cam with no fuss filming and editing , this will work a treat .

 Very Good But...

I agree with the other reviews that this is a good camera for shooting family footage but there are a number of issues:

1. Like most of these type of camera it shoots at 30fps which not 25fps which means if you want to edit it and put it on a PAL DVD there are all sorts of issues, If you just want to watch the footage back on you TV from the camera or on on your computer its fine but worth thinking about.

2. The bit rate is really quite low (around 9) which means you do get a lot of artifacting (blockiness for the none pro!) particularly if image is moving fast.

3. It has not HDMI out which is a shame.

4. Stills bit of the camera has a huge lag from pressing the shutter button to tacking the photo.

5. It has no mic input which rules it out of being used for any more pro video work. The onboard mic is good at getting the ambient sound but not much more.

All in all I like for using as a quick and easy camera to film my family but nothing more.

 Great camcorder for the money.

If you want to see what this camera can do, just search youtube for "Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG 10" and watch the 720p HD footage people have uploaded.

Even though it has it's limitations, I am very pleased with it due to the fact that it can do what it can do for the price. Recommended.

 Couldn't be easier

Before I start it should be mentioned that this product shipped with a 2 pin plug for the battery charger. It took me longer to find a UK standard plug to fit the charger than it did to figure out the controls and record my first video.

That said, once battery was charged we were up and running in no time. I have reduced the film quality to the lowest for now and this is more than adequate for my portfolio requirements. The higher res movies are great quality on my husbands HD ready laptop but on my older laptop are very jerky, even once movie files are copied to hard disc. The lower quality videos play fine on my laptop.

Still photos are same quality as my point and click digital camera and with a better optical zoom so I only need to carry the one gadget.

As far as family / holiday videos go. The camera is small and light which means it's perfect for slipping into a handbag or day sack. My 3yr old had no problem making a recording.

The battery life seems adequate so far but I have bought spares to keep us going on the move. It's a bit of a pain that you have to remove the battery to charge it but that's where spare batteries come in.

All in all a fantastic camera, especially for the price.

 Worth double!!!

My second Xacti camera and for 99 pounds you just cannot fault it!!

The video at 720p is fine on my 42inch plasma and not too far behind my Sony HD camcorders (1440x1280) quality. A couple of tips!!! It records at 30 fps. PAL is 25fps - conversion never works well. Best to stream to the TV from PC or NAS with one of the many streamers available, or use bluray!! Just give DVD a miss. The digital stabilisation is pretty weak - use a tripod and don't pan wildly and finally do not use the video noise reduction - it reduces the quality horribly.

To sum up buy it!!! I've used the Xacti more than higher quality gear over the last few years as it's small enough to be always with you without a massive quality loss - especially when you have learned to avoid its weak areas.
