You can buy its cousin, Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti 720p HD VPC-CG10, for $129. It only has 5x optical zoom but a better still camera at 10mp, and flash.
Variety, as they say, is the spice of life; and if you're one of those crazy kids who prefers an upright form factor, then you're sure to enjoy the convenient handling of the Dual Camera Xacti 720p HD VPC-CG10 (Pink) Sanyo. Big on name, but compact in size, this camcorder fits in your hand naturally and is great for recording action like skateboarding and more low-key situations, such as family gatherings, as well.
Containing a generous 10Mp CMOS sensor for high resolution stills, to go along with that 1280 x 720p HD footage, the CG10 records to lightweight SD/SDHC memory cards. The combination of this easily transferable media and the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 format makes uploading all your photos and videos to social media sites, and even your iPod, a snap.
Helping you get the perfect shot would be the 3" rotating LCD, Face Chaser technology and the digital image stabilizer. Super-Fast Start-Up and a built-in flash also ensure success.
The VPC-CG10 is user-friendly with impressive video and still capabilities.
Record HD to Flash Memory
Record 3 hours and 51 minutes of 720p HD video to an external 16GB SD/SDHC memory card. Recording to flash memory cards keeps things simple while freeing you up from carrying bulky media.
10Mp CMOS Sensor
Record 720p, 30fps HD video and 10Mp digital stills (12Mp interpolated) with the CG10's CMOS sensor.
5x Optical Zoom
The 5x optical zoom brings far off subjects into focus with clarity and virtually no loss in image quality. The lens features a zooming range of F=38-190mm.
Generous 3" LCD
The 3" LCD gives you a generous display on which to compose and playback your shots. The screen also rotates up to 285°, enabling you to shoot hard to get video from a variety of angles.
Simultaneous Video and Still Capture
Take stills while you're shooting video with just a touch of the shutter button.
The CG10's digital image stabilizer corrects for up-and-down and side-to-side camera movement, resulting in crisp, in focus, video and stills.
Features a switchable NTSC/PAL output for watching recorded video directly from the camcorder on your NTSC or PAL analog television.
