As I mentioned, I have two of them.

Their video is very good when you consider how small the sensor is.

For those who might be wondering, the Panasonic SDR-S10's video quality is far better than the video quality of the Sanyo VPC-CG6.

The Sanyos are probably the best low-cost MPEG-4 hybrids available.

They sport a cute "ray gun" sort of shape that charms a lot of folks.
