If you're interested in the higher end hybrid cameras we have now posted our Sanyo VPC-C4 and VPC-C5 reviews. I am most impressed with thevideo quality of these little cameras, it is nearly as good as MiniDV camcorder. The still images are also very good, see our sample photos and movies.

$799.99 price drop 699.99 in store



Steve excellent find on the camera?

It is not only on ebay , but on the sites I linkied as well, Sanyo themselves do not show full information, but have a coming soon. I have read this topic before, just that If I am going to spend $800.00

I would go with JVC, or SONY over Sanyo, and get a true camcorder with well over 60x total zoom.

And have your moments on something a little more secure than a sd card.

While there are simular models out there. Like the Miniket with 10x optical zoom and at $599.00 or less

It is still a great competitor to all the high end models. it is the consumers choice ofwhat brands they like.

Again a great review and choice in the digital world of camera and photograghy

Very impressive cameras, unfortunately more costly than what I choose to spend on a hybrid. On the downside for me is that they don't have MP3 modes, and use proprietary batteries. Feature lists that those of us with $300 hybrids can only drool about. Maybe I should just forget my little price game and buy one.

Equally impressive reviews of the C4 and C5. I can't find any specificiation for the video codec used, whether it is asf or avi. Also, an additional test could be start-up time with an almost-full memory card. I find that on my Digilife, the time to prepare for use becomes very excessive with a full card. This may be quite different on other cameras, and would be useful to know.
