I bought this from amazon as I buy a lot of books dvds etc so thought as they had a good price for this to get it there - bad idea the camera failed the very first time we used it on day one of our holiday and as it was our only camera and video (reason for purchase) it meant we had to use holiday money on getting another camera.
It filled with water in the shallow end of the pool (1 METRE) within 5 mins of use!!! You can watch the actual footage gradually go dull and out of focus as the lens fills up on the inside.
Absolute rubbish would not recommend it and to top it off Estockroom the Amazon reseller will not replace or refund but instead I have to go through the nightmare of the sanyo warranty system!
Get your goods from a store that you can return faulty good to! saved a few pounds - cost me dear!

Build quality good for price point.

Ergonomically well designed - even for a lefthander. I found holding it with both hands improved stability. Very small easily fits in a jacket pocket.

I already own a Sanyo VPC HD1000, this was bought as a second camera, and for its waterproof capabilities.

Video quality at 1280 x 720 30fps compares very favourably with the HD1000 on the same settings.

Initially I found the stills performance a little disapointing compared with the HD1000. There appeared to be too much processing (especially sharpness) applied to the image. However sharpness can be changed to "soft" in the settings and this certainly helped. Good ligting also helps.

My first test of its underwater performance was in a swimming pool. Video footage captured was very good, in circumstances where I would not have dared to use an ordinary camcorder.

All in all a good buy for me, there is nothing else available at anything like this price point except another Sanyo.

If you do not need the waterproof capabilty then other camcorders will offer better optical performance, but this is a good compromise.

If you want to go ski-ing downhill at 70 miles an hour I would suggest an extra nought on the budget for a suitable camera.

this camera/camrecorder is great. it is the only one on the market i could find that did both with a flash it is perfect for ma also waterproof which is brilliant and for the price you get good quality video and picture for the average person. Basically i use it for holidays photo's recording it is very good. but obviously i am the normal person yopu will get people saying its rubbish but what are these people expecting a £1000 camrecorder trust me its amazing for the price a definate buy i'd say one problem is it doesnt stand up so to use the timer is abit pointless unless you buy a stand
