In pursuit of a waterproof HD minicamcorder? Sanyo's VPC-CA102YL might fulfill your needs, though you wouldn't know that from its name.
Sanyo's latest Xacti Dual Camera offers "full HD" video and a 5x zoom lens in a traditional camcorder body, albeit a very small one.
Fairly affordable and offering a decent balance of abilities, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-SH1 is a good camcorder that takes notable still photos. Superior video quality is available elsewhere, however, for around the same price.
Typical price: £275.00
It might be a little pricier than the average pocket camera, but stump up the extra cash and Sanyo's gun-shaped Xacti VPC-CA100 will let you shoot video and photos of a much higher quality than its fellow pocket-friendly devices. It also provides a wider range of features, including immunity to water.
Typical price: £300.00
Sanyo has announced that the Xacti VPC-CS1 will land on British shores this very week. Specs and pricing are just one click away
The 'dual camera' Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG100 has its fair share of flaws, but it's not a bad compromise for people who don't want to carry two separate devices around. Don't expect to get broadcast-quality video though
Typical price: £230.00
Sanyo's dual-camera Xacti VPC-CG10 has the design and features to easily shoot both HD-quality movies and 10-megapixel photos, but slow performance and mediocre photos keep it from being a solid do-it-all device.
Sanyo announces new lineup of Xacti cameras designed to enhance active lifestyles by providing both high-definition video and photo capability in an easy-to-use compact camera.
Sanyo steered clear of the madness that was CES 2009 and instead opted to announce its spring 2009 lineup of Xacti camcorders this week.
The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 has the potential to offer a killer combination of camera and camcorder at a budget price, but a range of performance issues and technical limitations mean that it falls some way short of being the ideal dual device
Typical price: £220.00
