Conveniently capture life's important moments.  The new Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti CG10 records High Definition video (720p, 30fps), and up to 10 megapixel digital photos with 5X optical zoom.  All of these features are contained in a very stylish, sleek, upright design.  Videos, still photos and the various settings / menus can be easily accessed with the user?s thumb.  The CG10 easily fits in your coat pocket and makes sharing videos and photos via social networking web sites, portable video devices like IPod's, TV's and computers, easy.

  • 10-Megapixel photos
  • 5x optical zoom
  • 3-inch Widescreen LCD
  • Digital Image Stabilizer (video and stills)
  • Face Chaser technology (can detect up to 12 faces for photos and videos)
  • Built-in still photo flash
  • High-Speed Sequential Shooting (7fps)
  • MPEG-4, H.264 Video
  • SD/SDHC memory compatible

Style Design Made Simple
The Dual Camera Xacti CG10 packs cutting edge technology into a small, stylish, easy to use camera.  Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, the Dual Camera CG10 features an easy to navigate menu which make it a great choice for the beginner and the more advanced user.  It is the perfect blend of style, performance, and ease of use.

Large, 3-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions, proving to be especially useful when shooting in confined spaces.

10 Megapixel Still Image Quality
In addition to HD Video (720p 30 fps) the CG10 takes amazing 10 megapixel still photos.  With a 10 megapixel (effective) CMOS image sensor the still images can be interpolated to reach 12 megapixel still image quality.

5x optical zoom
The CG10 lens provides a zooming range of F=38 - 190mm (35mm equivalent). Combined with the 12x digital zoom, the CG10 offers a total zooming range of 60x.

12 Subject Face Chaser Technology
Recognizes up to 12 faces for videos and still pictures and optimizes focus and aperture settings to ensure all subjects are in focus.

Three-Dimensional Noise Reduction (3D-DNR) 
Sanyo?s 3D-DNR technology offers a significant improvement in video clarity by reducing random signal noise. This improvement in bit rate allocation will result in a highly accurate video image.

Sophisticated image stabilizer
Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the CG10 automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your subject steady and easy to follow. It accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement. This handy feature operates in both wide-angle and telephoto modes!

Sequential photo mode shoots up to 7 frames per second
Take pictures like the pros with sequential shooting up to 7 fps, or a total of 14 photos (2MP).  The perfect solution for action photography.

Highly advanced MPEG4 AVC/H.264 video compression
This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or e-mailing them to friends and family, even easier.  In fact, the file size can be up to 25 percent smaller than that of typical MPEG-4 cameras.

Easily transfer video and still images to your video capable iPod
Import video and still image files directly into iTunes software and then port them to your video-capable iPod.  Share your latest masterpiece with friends and family.

Record over 5 hours of full motion video
Using a 16GB SDHC memory card users can capture over 5 hours and 43 minutes worth of video in standard definition or approximately 3 hours and 51 minutes in HD video mode.

Capture still images while you're shooting video
The CG10 enables simultaneous shooting of video clips and still images with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a movie clip. You will never need to miss another precious photo opportunity. (Depending on the mode used to take still images, simultaneous video clip shooting may be interrupted. While shooting video clips, using the digital image stabilizer may change the angle of view for still images.)

Super-fast start-up
Reduce your chance of missing the perfect shot. The Dual Camera Xacti CG10 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the CG10 eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds! When the CG10 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. Simply open the display and the CG10 automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as 1.7 seconds.

Includes a high-capacity Sanyo brand lithium-ion battery
The DB-L80 is a high capacity battery designed to work with the Sanyo Xacti CG10 camera and delivers approximately 70 minutes of video record time.  High-energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti CG10. The DB-L80 is designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time.

Easy playback of recorded video directly on a TV
Connect the CG10 to a DVD / VCR Recorder, or to a computer, to back-up copies of recorded content. Still images and video clips are played back continuously and in chronological order.  When connected to a PC, simple drag-and-drop operation makes it easy to save recorded video clips and still images onto a computer's hard disk for emailing, editing or archiving.

4 out of 5 stars   Convenient compact HD camcorder
By Doug (Beaverton, OR) May 08, 2010
Review submitted for Sanyo VPC-CG10 HD Digital Video and 10MP Photos (Black) (SYVPCCG10B)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Sound, Good battery life, Great Picture Quality, Compact easy to carry, Easy to Use
Other Comments: Though I've only just started using this camera, I'm quite satisified with its performance. Two minuses though. One, the LCD (for me) was dim in daylight which made it difficult to aim the camera at my subject. (Maybe I could have increased the brightness?--I can't recall what setting I had at the time.) Two, the lens cover. Its held in place w/ friction catches ("snap on/off") which will wear out or worse, allow it to get misplaced/lost (I dislike a lanyard dangling from my camera). But these are minor complaints, and are far overshadowed by its impressive feature set, its good battery life and its compact size.

By Guy (Monterey Bay area) April 27, 2010
Review submitted for Sanyo VPC-CG10 HD Digital Video and 10MP Photos (Black) (SYVPCCG10B)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Sound, Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Limited Zoom, No External Mic Input
Other Comments: This camera is super portable, takes great pictures and awesome HD videos, and has a really decent battery life. It's easy to use, but if you don't like the standard menus there is an easy-use menu feature for quick transition from photo to video. Definitely a must for people making videos for upload to sites like YouTube or Dailymotion.
