Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 announcement clippings

The ultra-portable Xacti C1's compact design and lightweight body open up possibilities for shooting anytime and anywhere. The sleek, rounded form of this portable digital movie camera fits snugly in your hand, enabling you to shoot one-handed without putting strain on your wrist. The vertical design also makes it easier for you to keep your arms steady during use.

For storage, the Xacti C1 uses an SD memory card. Since video clips are recorded and stored in easyto-browse digital format, time is saved rewinding and fast-forwarding to a chosen scene. And, because the Xacti C1 starts up fast, it's always ready to catch those spontaneous, once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Storing the Xacti C1 in its handy Docking station ensures that it's always charged and ready to go. And, when it's time to play back what you've recorded, a USB/AV terminal gives you instant connection to a TV or PC. You can either hook the Xacti C1 up directly, or hook up via the Docking station. The supplied remote controller, meanwhile, lets you operate the Xacti C1 from a distance.

Despite its compact size, the Xacti C1's lens system comprises a total of 11 large-diameter 24 mm lenses. There are 8 different types of lens, including two adjacent aspheric lenses. The Xacti C1's compact, high-end 5.8x optical zoom lens enables still-picture shooting at a resolution of 3.2 megapixels. Together with the 10x digital zoom, it provides up to 60x zoom capability.

MPEG-4 digital recording makes it easier than ever to connect to your computer. Simply drag and drop to save the recorded video clips to your hard drive. The Xacti C1's included software, meanwhile, lets you easily edit your video clips as well as make video tapes, video CDs, or DVDs. At last your video clips can be stored at the high resolution they deserve. And don't worry if you don't have access to a computer. Simply use an AV cable to connect the Xacti C1 to your VCR or DVD player, and enjoy your video clips at superb high resolution.
