Its compact, lightweight design makes the GH4 extremely portable and easy to use. Recording videos, shooting photos and accessing settings in the menu can easily be controlled with the user’s thumb. The GH4’s MPEG4/H.264 recording format makes sharing videos and photos via social networking web sites, portable video devices like iPod’s, TV’s and computers, a breeze.

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.

I prefer this camcorder to similarly priced but over-simplified products like the Flip HD camcorder.
This camcorder's battery does not have much stamina. This is why I have two spare batteries all charged up waiting on the side. Original manufacturer's battery is almost always very expensive (about twenty two dollars, including shipping), so I buy brand new compatible batteries on Ebay. Including shippping charge, each battery costs less than four dollars! Just type in the battery model code printed on battery itself and you will find lots of choices and prices. There is even a compatible charger that is more compact than the the original, and that you can buy for less than four dollars. It's handy for times that you need to charge more than one battery at once, or just the convenience of having chargers at different locations.
That brings me to the topic of buttons and settings. Many of the functions on camcorders ten or more years ago were accessible by buttons located all around the device. The Xacti has very few of these external buttons. The majority of the functions are accessible through the menu button, 4 arrow keys, and a select button. I would suggest taking a good hour to familiarize yourself with the list of choices you can make through the menu.Read more ›
If you want it for typical family use: kids birthday party, school events, sports, ect you quickly learn the battery does not last very long. Don't count on over 30mins of use. Yes you may get 45 but only if you take it from the charger and instantly to the camera.
Also, the small size, very light weight and location of buttons make it difficult to snap a good quick photo.
In sum I would say it is a remarkably good camera for putting many features in one package at very low price but it is so limited by recording time without taking several freshly charged batteries with you and almost needing a tripod to operate effectively.
A good example of how several great ideas put together end up as one less useful total.

This review begins with 4 stars based upon very limited time with the camera, less than 2 hours. But I will update AND revise as experience grows to maintain a fair review based upon good experience. Not just experience with this camera, but my others. I have to say first, I find it inexcusable for Sanyo to NOT include a full owners manual! I suspect this will cause a TON OF RETURNS form justifiably confused customers. It really is just unforgivable to me for a manufacturer to do something like this on an item that requires some expertise & guidance. Having so many cameras & camcorders, I appreciate how delicate they can be and don't feel comfortable pulling, prodding, pushing everything till I get it open & accessible. I feel Sanyo is simply begging for a ton of dissatisfied consumers. Low class if you ask me and quite probably the reasons for the few very negative reviews before me.
I did this video in my back & side yard in pretty bad lighting on an overcast day. Yet with NONE of my editing software, I uploaded it "as is" & raw from the SD card directly to Amazon. Nothing fancy, just a simple handheld (shaky I know) little sample and showing how movement like walking causes some blur & artifacts.Read more ›
