"Not a bad unit overall"4.0 starson by zueben
Pros: size:7megapixel still shots: HD video:storage SDHC cards
Cons: Joystick movement, no pause feature in video recording
Summary: My hunt for a "one" camera to take video & still shots coupled with it's "pocket" size, could come to an end with this camera. As expected nothing is perfect. Why did sanyo see fit not to put a "pause" button in video recording is beyond me. There is a pause in playback. In video recording, invoke "stop" to stop recording, and a file is created, so at the end of the day you can have 2 to 10 files. To off set this flaw they created a feature, whereby you can join these files to create one file, with the option of overwriting the existing, or creating a new. With the SDHC capabilities a 4 gig card will hold about 1hr of recording at HD resolution. Looking at 8 gig SDHC cards at "newegg" web site. Battery not to good, 1 hour +. The "joystick" to access the menu is not that great. you are supposed to push down on it, to confirm your choices, the end result could be, it could either go up or down sometimes.Guess I will have to get use to it. Accessibility to switch to manual , change aperture,and different settings, is at you 'finger tips' . Video recording in low light,I had to change the ISO setting, got the brightness, but the picture became a bit fuzzy, tried changing the aperture setting, did not work to well. Still "dicking" aroung with this feature. Still shots, all good. Flash works nicely. Shooting in the dark is no problem.
