SANYO Takes Underwater Full HD Video to a Whole New Level
CHATSWORTH, Calif., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- SANYO North America Corporation (SANYO), introduces a new waterproof Full HD (1920 x 1080) Dual Camera Xacti, model VPC-CA102YL, for active lifestyles. The new Dual Camera can be used to record over 480 minutes of 1080 Full HD video on a single 64GB SDXC memory card and 14MP photos from a depth of ten feet underwater. The camera will be available for purchase in August with an MSRP of $349.99.
Designed for any indoor or outdoor adventure, the VPC-CA102YL fits perfectly in the palm of the user's hand and is small enough to be carried in a pocket, backpack, or purse -- ready to be used at any time and in any weather condition. SANYO Dual Cameras use a convenient video format, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, which makes sharing videos online, on blogs or on other multimedia sites simple. The media created can also be easily edited and exported to portable media devices. Photos and videos can be displayed in Full HD resolution on high definition TVs.
"Dual Cameras are packed with features and offer incredible flexibility," says Tom Van Voy, Vice President and General Manager of the Digital Solutions Division for SANYO North America. "This is the 'take everywhere' camera; water, snow, or land. Getting great HD video and still images is incredibly easy with the new CA102YL," said Van Voy.
The camera uses a proprietary "double-range zoom" feature for zoom operation while filming video with 12x zoom available from wide angle to telephoto for capturing distant objects (equivalent to 40mm to 480 mm zoom in a 35mm film camera). In addition, the High-Speed Sequential Shooting mode enables capturing up to 22 photos at 7 frames per second.
The VPC-CA102YL is stylish and compact with a yellow, vertical-shaped body with gray accents. The new SANYO high-speed image processing engine contributes to the small size.
Files can be saved to SD, SDHC or ultra-high capacity SDXC (up to 2Tb) memory cards. Also, there are multiple video and photo modes for flexibility in memory use. The battery will allow approximately 60 minutes of continuous filming time in Full HD mode.
