The Xacti VPC-CG20 is a mid-range camcorder from Sanyo. It shoots 1080i video and 10-megapixel photos with a 5x optical zoom, lacking the dual-range video zoom technology of the VPC-CG102 and VPC-GH2. The camcorder contains new image stabilization technology which aims to enable low-noise, low-blur photos and steady video capture. Other features include face detection and a high-speed sequential photo mode. A mini-HDMI output allows images and video to be easily played back on an HDTV. Battery life is rated at 70 minutes of video recording.
