If you have ever seen any of my YouTube videos you would know that I used to have a Xacti C4 video/digital still camera. Unfortunately that camera is now dead. It started subtle with the degradation of the battery for this camera. I looked around for a new one and tried many different places but decided not to get one. Probably a bad move.

I kept using the camera and it kept on ticking. I had taken the camera to over 30 states, and taken over 8000 photos with it and probably 300 hours of video. I used it a LOT. But recently it took a turn for the worst and died. It flat out gave up. But all in all it was a trooper. Don’t expect many videos from me in the near future as it will take some time to decide on a camera that had the reliability of my Xacti.

Here is the final production of my Sanyo Xacti C4.

    Wow, over 8000 photos and 300 hours of video. Sounds like you most DEFINITELY got your moneys worth out of that camera :)

    I’d suggest a cannon powershot s520, that’s the one I use and it takes amazing photographs and video.

    Dave,
    Oh I certainly got the money’s worth from that item. I used it everywhere The coolest thing was the design and the way the screen could swivel back so I could see if I was in the shot. There are some new Sanyo’s and I will most likely go with that if I get a new one, however I do have a Canon SD800is. I haven’t done much video with it but will try.

    I’ve never used a C4, but I’m a huge fan of the Xacti camcorders. The earliest model I used was the C5. The newer CG6 and E1 are worlds above the C5, so if you liked your C4, then you would likely be very happy with the newer models. And, you would be familiar with their controls.

    While I am not a fan of anonymous comments. This one was a good one. I have been thinking about the newer sanyos and I love my C4. I was thinking about the waterproof one as that would be good for the Wired Kayaker podcasts.
