Satisfy Their Craving
Although it’s not possible to blog underwater yet, capture underwater video with Sanyo’s VPC-CA65 Xacti Digital Movie Camera. The world’s first waterproof digital movie camera (without a housing) can record DVD-quality video and 6 Megapixel stills up to an hour at a time. Featuring next-generation H.264 video compression at a smooth 30 frames per second, the Xacti delivers a 25 percent reduction in video file size for improved video quality against traditional MPEG-4 recordings. Capture up to 10 hours of video with an 8GB SD card.
Small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, but big enough for blogger’s trigger fingers, the Xacti’s pistol grip body is designed for convenient one-handed operation and one-thumb control of key functions—ideal for outdoor activities such as surfing, snorkeling, waterskiing or the beach. “[It’s] really four cameras in one,” touts Sanyo, “it’s both a video and still camera above water and a video and still camera below water.”
Still camera feature highlights include simultaneous image capture while shooting digital movies, 16:9 still photo capture and anti-shake image stabilizer.
