The editors liked

  • Clear and detailed Full HD video
  • Great range of video settings
  • Full HD at this size and weight is a feat in its own right but the CS1 also scores well thanks to its optical zoom
  • Which is longer than that on rival cams from Kodak
  • Flip and JVC.The camera’s Eye-Fi compatibility is also a selling point
  • Especially if you’re looking to upload content to the web while on the move. Eye-Fi cards (an SD card with Wireless LAN) allow you to upload to a computer or w

The editors didn't like

  • Tacky reflective design
  • So thin it's difficult to handle
  • Cheap
  • Awkward controls
  • The camera’s super-slim design often makes it difficult to hold steady
  • And some may feel it’s actually too thin to feel comfortable shooting with. Low-light shooting results aren’t impressive and even on normal daylight footage colours can appear washed-out. Eye-Fi compatibility is a good bonus feature
  • But it relies on investing in a suitable Eye-Fi card
  • Which will add to your overall cost.

  • To sum it up this analysis, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-CS1 might not be a great choice for a camcorder. There are better ones out there, especially when it comes to design....

  • Now is the conclusion to my review of the Sanyo xacti CS1 pocket camcorder, I can say truthfully that I have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the full HD recording and a few of the settings that go with that function of the device but apart...

  • The Sanyo VPC-CS1 swells the ranks of pocket-sized camcorder and provides consumers with a more rounded selection. It has a high feature count, impressive zoom and solid focusing ability. Though, unfortunately, the video performance is often let down b...

  • Clear and detailed Full HD video, Great range of video settings
  • Tacky reflective design, So thin it's difficult to handle, Cheap, awkward controls
  • HD video is clear and crisp, but in slimming down and cheapening, the CS1 sells out almost everything that made the Xacti pistol grip series such a massive hit

  • Sanyo pioneered the concept of hybrid camcorders and digital cameras and this model boasts many components that ought to continue a successful formula. Unfortunately, too many compromises have been made to make a success of the smallest 1080i dual-mod...

  • Small and lightweight, Captures good images under bright lighting,
  • Flimsy, Difficult to use, Small, unresponsive controls, Soft images with motion artifacts, Poor battery life, Minimal image stabilization
  • I wanted to bring a video camera on a recent, eight-hour, hilly bike ride. The VPC-CS1’s small size was appealing; it could slip it into my jersey pocket. But since I didn’t want to fiddle with frustrating controls and did want to capture good images,...

  • Easy to Use, Good zoom, Non proprietary video format
  • No larger battery packs, No optical image stabilization, Scratches easily
  • Two Sanyo cams with different ways to handle and shoot. The VPC-CS1 is a tiny camera that takes good video and still images and the VPC-SH1 has a compact comfortable fit that's priced just right for the consumer.SANYO 21605 Plummer St. Chatsworth, CA ...

  • The thin, compact design of the Sanyo VPC-CS1 definitely gives the camcorder a unique look, and its impressive specs make it all the more intriguing. Once you take a good look beyond its hot pink paint job, however, you'll find the CS1 to be a very di...

  • At CES this past January we were smitten by Sanyo's little VPC-CS1 camcorder and now, many moons later, it's coming to retail. Akihabara News has taken it for a test drive and, as you might expect from something only 29mm thin, it has some compromises. Th...
