I just found the best gadget the solves my frustration with shooting low light with our sanyo c6:G GET A PHOTON FREEDOM MICRO:http://www.photonlight.com/products/...cro/index.html

This pocket light is the strongest LED light available(amazing brightness)... 1 microlight can light up a big room.. enough to get sharp and clear images! How can we do it? Buy a stick-on velco and attach the photon beside the microphone or on top of your c5/c6. this way it can light up 180" of your view. The only problem is you will get so much attention on how bright this light can be (butwith the new photon it is now adjustable). I advise to get the turquoise(brightest) and white so you still get the right colors. ENJOY!!

Hmm, that looks really interesting! You say you bought two lights, turquoise and white, and that gave good colors? If these are that bright how long do the batteries last?

Thanks very much for the suggestion, I do believe I will give it a try! Even if it doesn't work, the little flashlight looks downright handy all by itself.

Edit: Oh, Caelum mentionedawhile agothe possibility of using CameraBright with the Xacti, it screws onto the tripod mount at the bottom of the camera. That could be a little nicer than the velcro solution.

I don´t get it. The C6 does have a flashlight doesnt it? The LED´s are giving more light in comparison with the flashlight???

I have a quick release on the bottom of my camera so the camerabrightwill not work.

But that flashlight is awesome, I have no time to get one before my trip.

Do all c6 models come with "quick-release"? I never saw what it is...

The quick release shoe is a tripod mount that stays screwed onto the bottom of the camera, so when you want to put the camera on or off the tripod you just push a lever rather than do/undo a thumbscrew. I have one for my tripod but I don'tkeep it on because I can't put the leather case on the C6 with the shoe on.

Actually, you could use the camerabright with a quick release shoe. The camerabright has a 1/4" internal thread on the bottom (not shown on the photo), so you'd screw the camerabright onto the camera and the shoe onto the camerabright. In fact, you could stack a number of camerabright lights together beneath the camera (they say don't do more than 4, but that's assuming a camcorder heavier than the Xacti). For $5 more they have a light with a sturdier metal screw rather than the plastic screw, but I don't think that's really necessary with the C6.

Bumping this thread to ask if anyone has used the Camerbright on the C6? Is the product bulky in comparison to the size of the camera?
