Sanyo, an electronics company, boats a wide array of gadgets and electronics in their product lines, and was the first company to bring introduce the consumer market to cheap, high-quality flash camcorders. While not known exclusively for their digital cameras, Sanyo has an impressive line up, one of the most popular of which is the VPC-E870. And it is available at today.

The VPC-E870 digital camera is priced at a comfortable $150, and offers all the features you could want in a normal digital camera. If you’re looking into purchasing a point and shoot digital camera, this review will outline the pros and cons of purchasing the VPC-E870.


The body of this Sanyo digital camera is fairly standard. Composed of thin metal and plastic, it feels sturdy in the hands, yet not quite tough enough to handle a fair distance drop to a hard floor.

The zoom lens is mounted to the front of the camera, with the flash nestled neatly above it. The tope boasts a mode dial and shutter button. The back of the camera hosts the large 2.4″ LCD display, which is large enough to make viewing pictures and photos easy.

The digital camera has an 8-megapixel sensor, which is enough to produce high-quality prints at over 12″ square.


There are some features you just can’t live without on a digital camera, and luckily, the Sanyo VPC-E870 has those features.

The camera features integrated image stabilization, which will prevent blurs and shakiness in your photographs, the natural result of handheld shots. The camera uses the basic and cheap medium of SD cards to store pictures, and features 16MB of internal storage space, which is enough for a few shots at the highest megapixel rating.

Finally, the VPC-E870 features face detection, a useful feature for anyone who enjoys photographing people. The face detection will notice a face in the picture and will adjust the focus to make sure the portrait is not blurred, even if it is off to the side or in the background.

Image Quality

The image quality is standard. While you won’t want to use this a backup for a professional shoot, the photos are certainly not the quality you’d expect from a camera in this low of a price bracket, and they are more than adequate for the average persons need.

Using the auto setting, there isn’t noticeable noise in general light settings. There is noise in low light settings, but that is to be expected from any camera. The colors are not skewed – they come out very natural, and don’t make a picture look fake or funny.


The Sanyo VPC-E870 is an excellent choice for anyone who needs a cheap digital camera with enough megapixels to make large prints and natural coloring. The camera has all the basic features needed, and won’t break easily in a backpack or bag. The body is sleek and professional looking, so it won’t look like you have a toy. Overall, this is an excellent camera for the general consumer.
