Thx. Netonet also have the Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1, wh1 and GH1 that you talk about.

To many models

To many models
TH1 = Only 720p
WH1 = Older model, only 720p but waterproof (3 m)
GH1 = Not available on Netonnet

Best models available on Netonnet:

SH1 but it's expensive at 3.679 SEK
CG100 for 2.290 SEK
If you don't need 14MP photos and 12x double range optical zoom (CG100) go with CG20 for 1.890 SEK (10MP and only 5x optical zoom)

With respect to the Sanyo Models, I would go with the pistol grip version. I find them much more comfortable and stable than the 'traditional' camcorder style models when holding for long periods.

I've used the Sanyo GH2 (same as GH1 here in USA) and found it more tiring to use than a pistol grip camcorder. It's compounded by the fact that it's so small and doesn't have any weight compared to larger traditional style camcorders.

If you don't care about the price go with Panasonics 700-series. Superb camcorder.

About Sanyo: CG20 and CG100 are identical except for zoom and megapixel count. Between these two go with CG100.

I have decided to buy GH1, identical to CG100 except for the design and the way you hold it, i.e., "traditional grip".

Just look at this sample footage. Looks amazing.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG20 / Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG100
- "Pistol grip"
- Zoom @ 5x (CG20) and double range zoom @ 12x (CG100)
- Wide angle lens @ 38mm
- Photo @ 10MP (CG20) and photo @ 14MP (CG100)
- Video @ 1920x1080i @ 60 fps @ 16 Mbit/s
- Video @ 1920x1080p @ 30 fps @ 12 Mbit/s
- Video @ 1280x720p @ 60 fps @ 12 Mbit/s
- Video @ 1280x720p @ 30 fps @ 9 Mbit/s

Sanyo Xacti VPC-GH1
- "Traditionell grip"
- Double range zoom @ 12x
- Wide angle lens @ 38mm
- Photo @ 14MP
- Video @ 1920x1080i @ 60 fps @ 16 Mbit/s
- Video @ 1920x1080p @ 30 fps @ 12 Mbit/s
- Video @ 1280x720p @ 60 fps @ 12 Mbit/s
- Video @ 1280x720p @ 30 fps @ 9 Mbit/s
I think CG100 is 14mp and CG20 is 10mp.
