Wonderful camera overall. Still waiting for an adapter to come out for first person point of view recording while camera is concealed. ie. home helmet cam.

I have been using the Sanyo Xacti C1 for the last 2 years & still find it very handy & unique, compared to other digital cameras within this range. Since I first bought it, 2 of my friends have also bought them after they saw my camera. I just found out it also has a underwater housing for diving. I am very happy with this. Although I'm still trying to get it from the local stores here .It sure is a wonderful camera that I have seen so far. Good job!

Very handy and useful for not invasive filming. The MP4 of the Xacti C1 is not from the same quality as a DV movie.

For me a Huge drawback is the 1 second frame freeze that precedes with every movie clip! It really botches up a home movie. Battery duration is irregular, and much less than advertised. I have 3 Xacti C1 cameras and they are good for a maximum of 5 to 15 minutes filming, very annoying. The Sanyo C1 is definitely not a movie camera. It is an excellent and practical photo camera with shoddy video clip possibilities - at a high price.

Bought the Xacti C1 in December 2004. Good points: Get 30mins of video on 512Mb card, at 640 x 480 good quality. Good battery life; very compact and handy for travel- can carry easily in pocket, and is very easy to use. Very few controls on camera. Good stills at 3.2 MP; can edit and combine videos in camera; useful 6 x optical zoom. Gives good pics in daylight and can easily print out to A4 with no visible pixilation. Very good sharp macros even down to 2cm. Downside: doesn't handle dim light well even with flash producing people images that are muddy; portrait setting does not help. (Is very good in daylight). Few on-camera controls means fiddling a bit with menus. Overall, the Sanyo Xacti C1 is my camera of choice for travelling, with the best of both worlds.

I have been using the Sanyo Xacti C1 since January 2004 and found it to be very satisfactory, especially, its Expert Mode after practising for almost two years. However, it has been found unsuitable for taking video clips under dim light conditions. For taking still pictures the exposure correction setting is very helpful to obtain nice photos.

I only found out after I bought the camera that it compresses Video down to MPEG4. That is its biggest single shortcoming, and it shows when viewing the video clips on a medium size TV. They look like old VCR tapes that have been copied down 100 times. I guess you can get only so much data on an SD card. A second drawback is the cumbersome and very limited Ulead video software. So don't expect video miracles. However, the still pictures are surprisingly good. Facts: nice little camera gadget to carry in your pocket. The newer no tape hybrids from JVC's sound more serious. For real video, and for real stills hybrids Sanyo is not quite there yet.
