Style Design Made Simple
The Dual Camera CG20 packs cutting edge technology into a small, easy to use camera. Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, the CG20 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.
10 Megapixel Still Image Quality
In addition to Full HD 1080 Video the CG20 captures amazing 10 megapixel photos.
5x Optical Zoom (photos and video)
The CG20 features an optical zoom that magnifies photos and video images up to 5x their normal size.
Large, 2.7 -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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Easily Follow Moving Objects with 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!
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.
Includes a High-Capacity Sanyo Brand 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.
SDXC Memory Compatibility (over 64GB SD Cards)
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 to 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.
Highly Advanced 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, even easier. In fact, the file size can be up to 25 percent smaller than that of typical MPEG-4 cameras.
Capture Still Images While Youre 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. (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.)
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.

Comments about Sanyo Sanyo CG20 HD Camcorder (Black):
This little handheld is very compact and easy to use. I just love the dual camera feature. It can take full HD videos at 1920x1080 at 60 fields/sec and although it says 10 megapixel, it can actually take up to 12 megapixel photos. The camera flash is actually not bad and the whole camera feature compares to many competitors out there. The menu and settings are easy to use and the battery lasts pretty long. It is wonderful for everyday use and for those moments that you simply cannot miss. This camcorder is just wonderful for its price. If you are on a tight budget and in need of a good camera/camcorder then this is the camera/camcorder for you.
