Sanyo Xacti C4 - Steve's comments
According to Steve: "Like the C5, we were pleased with the ergonomics of this model. Although it is very compact, the C4 is slightly "fatter" than its sibling, which actually made it a little more comfortable in your hands. Controls are well placed and easy to use.", "The overall image quality when using 4M mode was great. Our outdoor samples were sharp with nice color balance," and "We feel it will make a great choice for those who want a camera that will capture both quality still images and near MiniDV quality movies, all with a "Wow" factor that is sure to draw attention when among friends."

Sanyo C5 digital camera - Small and Impressive

The ultra-small digital Xacti C5 camera has a precision 5x optical zoom lens that remains internal to the camera body and features a 5-point auto focus system.
Sanyo C5 camera - Judgment call
According to Steve: "The 285° swiveling 2.0-inch LCD offers versatility with viewing angles that are just not possible with the typical "fixed" position LCDs. I found it worked well outdoors, even with harsh sunlight beating directly onto it," "The C5 was quite the performer. Another unique option on this hybrid was its Wind Noise Reduction mode. It virtually eliminates any noise caused by a slight breeze, which is one of the downfalls to most digicams. Audio is recorded in Stereo thanks to the two built-in microphones. Overall it captures high-quality movies, with very little compression noise when using its SHQ mode.", and "When shooting indoors, I found the flash had a pretty short range, but it's to be expected from such a small camera."
