If you’ve ever purposely left your camera behind knowing that your outdoor adventure is going to include water, then you’re familiar with that cold, empty feeling you get when you return home and realize that you’ve failed to document your trip. Sanyo’s new Xacti VPC-CA102 handily solves that problem—it’s a waterproof video cam fit to weather the storm.
Today Sanyo announced a new Xacti camera model, dubbed the VPC-GH4. This Dual Camera can capture 10MP (megapixel) images and Full HD 1080 60i video. In addition, the new camera has a two-position recording button that will allow you to switch between eye-level recording and ground-level recording.
Ahhh, yes. Summertime, and the living is easy, especially if you're going on vacation to some far off tropical place. In fact, you might be wondering how you'll be able to take any photos or video of your family members splashing away in the clear ocean waters without ruining your camera. Fortunately, Sanyo has announced a full HD underwater video camera, which takes video up to ten feet underwater.
In the video camera market, the term "HD" is thrown around about as
much as the word "green" is used in the general consumer market. Both
are buzz words intended to lure in customers by making them feel
they’re on the cutting-edge of some important new trend. The number of
consumer digital video cams that claim to shoot HD is staggering,
especially when you consider that most camera companies think shooting
in a 16:9 aspect ratio is automatically HD.
