Somebody on here bought an Xacti C5 (VPC-C5) from Japan recently, but I think the posts were lost during the 'incident' recently. Can whoever that was tell me what the sound quality is like, and how well it copes with fast moving scenes. I am not expecting perfection, but would like to try and see an example or two.


Cheers

I saw the post as well. I bought the C4 in February. Sound quality is pretty good...it records in stereo. Even though there is a wind compensation setting I found the quality poor when shooting outside during adverse conditions. The camera has much compression; there are multiple shutter settings to capture various activities and lighting scenarios. I found that there really is a trade off between dv quality and compact convenience. I read some of the differences between the C4 and C5. Besides aesthetics, a bit better resolution, and web compatibility I did not a huge difference.
