SANYO today annoucned the the launch of two new models of its Dual Camera Xacti series of cameras, the DMX-CG100 and DMX-GH1.
With slim and compact designs, the new models capture Full HD video and high-resolution photos.
By utilizing a convenient video format that can be easily handled on PC and Internet environments, as well as on home TVs, Xacti cameras are more than just hardware for capturing, viewing, and saving images. They are convenient products for sharing videos online, and on multi-media sites.
While the DMX-CG100 and DMX-GH1 both have slim compact designs, they can still capture Full HD video (1920 x 1080 (60i)) and 14 mega-pixel high-resolution photos.
The video format for the new cameras is "MPEG-4 AVC / H.264," which enables videos to be handled on a computer or the Internet using a single file, just like a still photo.
The new models are equipped with SANYO?s proprietary "Double Range Zoom" feature for zoom operation while filming video. With a touch of the Zoom Range Button, this technology allows users to switch between two zoom ranges, a Wide Mode (40 mm to 240 mm) and a Tele Mode (80 mm to 480 mm), which changes the size of the video capture area on the image sensor. As a result, the new models offer an extensive range of video capture from wide angle to telephoto zoom for distant scenery, with a magnification of up to 12x (40 mm to 480 mm; 35-mm film basis).
The DMX-GH1 also features SANYO?s unique "Double Sub Rec Button" for easier shooting. In addition to the regular recording buttons, there are also separate Double Sub Rec video and photo capture buttons on the upper front edge of the camera. This enables the user to capture a subject in a comfortable posture even when the subject is at a low angle.
Other Features of the cameras include a "Digital Image Stabilizer"and "Face Chaser Function" for videos, the
"The new Digital Image Stabilizer," "Face Chaser Function" and "Target a Color Function" for photos and the
"Reverse Sequential Shot Function" to prevent the missing of photo opportunities. The cameras are equipped with
Mini HDMI port and are compatible with SDXC memory cards.
