Sanyo introduces its new rugged camera
Sanyo has again placed itself at the top of its game by offering a new dual camera range which has blurred the line when it comes to digital still cameras as well as video camcorders. It gives the users the ability to shoot beautiful stills and record videos of their favorite memories at the same time. I admit these functions are not something new when they are merged into a single device, but Sanyo goes a step further by offering full waterproof capability of up to 3 meters. Now that is definitely new! It’s good for people who go snorkeling or who spend plenty of time in the water. So all you potential buyers might be thinking this is going to pricey. Well, Sanyo has promised that these will not burn the pockets especially at times of the current economic situation.
Sanyo has come out with two models VPC-CA9EX and VPC-WH1EX. Both the models can record underwater, although the former can only do at a depth of 1.5 meters. Other features include high definition recording for clearer and crisper images. The VPC-WH1EX comes with a stunning 30x zoom, making it the largest zoom of any waterproof camera in the world. Memory is flash based for enhanced battery life and it makes the device more compact and lightweight. Pricing is yet to be known but we have been reassured that it will not tighten our credit.
