Sanyo VPC-CG20 overview

  • 1Description

Sanyo's VPC-CG20 Dual Camera (Black) is an affordable way to capture 1920 x 1080i HD video and 10MP stills. In addition to high def video quality the CG20 also offers up a pistol grip design, flash memory recording options, and user-friendly creative control features.

The VPC-CG20 records to Eye-Fi wireless SD cards. Eye-Fi lets you send your JPEG videos and stills to your Bluetooth enabled computer for instant transfer of files. The camera is also compatible with SD/SDHC cards and high capacity SDXC memory cards that can hold more than 64GB worth of data.

When it comes to controlling the camera the VPC-CG20 features a 2.7" LCD display that rotates up to 285 degrees. Other functions such as 5x optical zoom and super-fast start-up ensure that you get those far-off subjects and spur of the moment shots.

Creative controls such as Face Detection and Object Chaser Technology give you the tools you need to take better photos and videos without having to go to film school. In addition to these features other considerations such as a sequential photo mode and simultaneous video and still capture provide other useful ways to make the most of your experience.

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 CG20 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 CG20 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 CG20 Full HD 1080 videos stored on SDXC cards on your high definition TV
Eye-Fi Compatibility
The CG20 features enhanced Eye-Fi compatibility. This Dual Camera will automatically recognize the Eye-Fi wireless SD card when it is inserted. The CG20 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
5x Optical Zoom
The CG20 features an optical zoom that magnifies photos and video images up to 5x their normal size
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
10MP Still Image Quality
In addition to Full HD 1080 Video the CG20 captures amazing 10 megapixel photos
Video and Photo Image Stabilizer
The CG20 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 CG20 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 CG20 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 CG20 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 CG20 camera features a mini-HDMI output which makes connecting it to a Digital TV or DVD Recorder a breeze. The CG20 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 CG20 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the CG20 eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds. When the CG20 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. Simply open the display and the CG20 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 CG20 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 CG20. It designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time
Object Chaser Technology
The CG20 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 CG20 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
