SANYO Announces New Xacti Dual Cameras For 2010

SANYO, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of consumer electronics, is pleased to announce the launch of two brand new Xacti Dual Cameras for 2010.  With traditional and ‘pistol grip’ versions available, the new full HD   Dual Cameras (Models VPC-SH1 and VPC CS1) will be available during February 2010.

The SANYO Xacti VPC-CS1 is less than 1 inch thick

Xacti VPC-CS1

The new Xacti Slim Type Dual Camera (VPC-CS1) with ‘pistol grip’ is the world’s smallest, lightest and thinnest dual camera, providing the ultimate in portability for easy shooting and filming on the go. Add this to its Full HD capabilities and the ‘Sound Zoom’ function that enables clear sound recordings according to the scene and you have a truly industry leading dual camera.

Xacti  VPC-SH1

Developed using traditional camcorder styling but dramatically reduced in size the VPC-SH1 expands image-capturing possibilities with industry-leading ‘35-mm Wide-Angle Lens’ and ‘30x Advanced Zoom’. It may be compact but there is no compromise on image quality with the VPC-SH1 capturing Full HD videos with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The new Xacti VPC-SH1 offers a 30x zoom function

Furthermore, the VPC-SH1 features SANYO’s proprietary Double Sub REC Button,

an industry first recording button separately provided on the upper front part of the body to easily capture low-angle images from a comfortable position.

Both cameras use a helpful video format that is great on your PC, online or even on your TV at home.
