Peter, Birmingham Just point and shoot

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Really tiny video camera, sits in your pocket nicely.
Bad points:
Battery is very poor. Both main and second replacement battery lasts 30-45 minutes of continuous shooting. My wedding video was a bit cut up!

Sound was disappointing on the video, lots of white noise, microphone not directional (doesn't pick up sound from the direction you're pointing at as a priority).

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
It's small
Bad points:
Camera quality is poor- really disappointed. Video quality is average. Flash is poor. Buy 2 separate produts that each do their job properly rather than 1 that tries to do both but in reality does neither.

Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Although it boasts a very compact form factor, the Xacti CG100 can record Full HD videos at 1920 × 1080 resolution, along with genuine high-resolution photos. SANYO developed a new proprietary high-speed image-processing engine to deliver high image quality in a compact package. The engine is designed to reduce power consumption and provide optimal operation in conjunction with the CMOS image sensor. What’s more, the CG100 employs a newly developed 12x double-range zoom function for video shooting. This further expands the shooting area for all situations from wide to telephoto.

The Xacti CG100 can capture realistic 14-megapixel photos just like those taken with a dedicated digital camera.
Despite being a Full High-Definition video camera, the Xacti CG100 can capture realistic 14-megapixel photos just like those taken with a dedicated digital camera. It can even record higher-resolution images at up to 16 megapixels, using real-time interpolation technology*1.

The Xacti CG100, the ergonomic, rounded form is designed to feel comfortable in your hand—it’s the ideal combination of small size and easy usability.
It used to be that camcorders were reserved only for special occasions. The concept behind the Xacti series, though, was to make it possible to record video clips of spontaneous everyday happenings. Based on this concept, SANYO has developed a range of devices compact enough to carry anywhere and use anytime. With the Xacti CG100, the ergonomic, rounded form is designed to feel comfortable in your hand—it’s the ideal combination of small size and easy usability.
