  • Go Swimming With The Sanyo Underwater HD Xacti Camcorder

    Normally camcorders and swimming don’t go hand-in-hand, but Sanyo’s latest in the Xacti line is something different. The waterproof cam should have no issues taking 1080i@60 videos at depths under 10 feet. Combined with the 5x optical zoom, 2.7-inch LCD, and rechargeable battery, it’s not a bad kit for only $350. The VPC-CA102YL should hit retailers sometime this month. Read More

    Sanyo announced a couple of tasty XACTI camcorders a few weeks ago for the Japanese market.

  • Sanyo Xacti rocks the 1080i HD, Slow-Mo, and 10x optical zoom

    These Xacti cameras are real monsters. The earlier models shot in HD but this is full 1080i and it records directly to SD cards. It also takes 4-megapixel stills and can shoot up to 300 frames per second for slow-motion shots. It also has 12 subject face-detection and runs off of human blood. I made up that last part. Generally, however, the Xacti line is showing just about everyone how to make… Read More

  • Sanyo releases new entry-level pocket camcorders to Japan, possibly US headed

    [photopress:cg9.jpg,full,center] Sanyo’s Xacti line of pocket camcorders are sweeter than they first appear. We checked out a similar model to this CG9 (CrunchGear 9!?) at CES and were a little amazed at how a tiny fixed-focus, non-zooming camcorder made things look.
