When it comes to shooting tools, the VPC-CG102 has a 2.7" LCD that rotates up to 285 degrees. It also features a super-fast start-up, simultaneous video and still capture, and Object Chaser Technology. Image stabilization and Face Detection also come in handy for capturing focused video with less noise and blur.

MPEG4 AVC/H.264 Video Compression
This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or emailing them to friends and family, easy
SDXC Memory Compatibility
While the CG102 works with standard SD memory, and more high capacity SDHC memory cards, it is also fully compatible with the next generation SDXC memory cards. The CG102 can record more than 64GB of content to SDXC memory cards. This dramatically improves your ability to record and transfer hours and hours of Full HD 1080 videos to a computer. You can also play CG102 Full HD 1080 videos stored on SDXC cards on your high definition TV
Eye-Fi Compatibility
The CG102 features enhanced Eye-Fi compatibility. This Dual Camera will automatically recognize the Eye-Fi wireless SD card when it is inserted. The CG102 also has "smart power" on board which allows the cameras to control the Eye-Fi function and provide power management, automatically shutting the card off when not in use
12x Dual Range Zoom and 5x Optical Zoom
While the CG102 is quite small in size, it features a 12x Dual Range Zoom for video. With Sanyo's 12x Dual Range Zoom Technology the field of view is dramatically increased. The photo zoom capability is 5x Optical Zoom
2.7" LCD Screen
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
14MP Still Image Quality
In addition to HD 1080 Video the CG102 captures amazing 14 megapixel photos
Video and Photo Image Stabilizer
The CG102 features a new photo stabilizer. This technology actually takes two photos at the same time; one at a faster shutter speed and one at a slower shutter speed. The camera combines the benefits of both of the shutter speeds, resulting in an image that has less blur and less noise

Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the CG102 automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your video and photo subjects 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

Capture Still Images While You're Shooting Video
The CG102 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 1
High Speed Sequential Photo Mode
This camera features a sequential "photo" shooting mode. When the user selects this mode the camera will take multiple photos in sequential order; providing multiple photos frames. The perfect solution for action photography
Video and Photo Face Detection
The CG102 utilizes specialized video and photo face detection technology. This feature recognizes multiple subjects' faces and optimizes focus/aperture settings to ensure each individual is in focus
Easy Playback of Recorded Video Directly on a TV
The CG102 camera features a mini-HDMI output which makes connecting it to a Digital TV or DVD Recorder a breeze. The CG102 can also easily be connected to a computer to back-up copies of recorded content via the handy USB 2.0 connection. 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
Super-Fast Start-Up
Reduce your chance of missing the perfect shot. The Dual Camera CG102 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the CG102 eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds. When the CG102 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. Simply open the display and the CG102 automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as 1.7 seconds
High Capacity Lithium-Ion Battery
The DB-L80 is a high capacity battery designed to work with the Sanyo Dual Camera CG102 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 CG102. It designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time
Object Chaser Technology
The CG102 is capable of "object chasing"; a feature which allows you to maintain proper lighting and focus on objects in motion. This is a great way to capture video of family members and pets on the move
Windows 7 Compatible
The CG102 is fully supported by the latest Windows OS, "Windows 7", further expanding its capabilities. The video files are displayed in the same thumbnail format as still picture files. They can also be played back directly with Windows Media Player, are editable with Windows Live Movie Maker, and are Device Stage compatible. This makes the files even more convenient for use on computers
