I really rate the Sanyo Xacti movie/still cameras – with a retro-styling that leans heavily towards the look of the old super 8 cameras. It’s also quite a nifty gadget too.
The latest Xacti is the VPC-CA6, a splash-resistant digital camera/MPEG4 video camera that should withstand rain, wet hands or the splash of a swimming pool. It’s a 6 megapixel camera with 5x optical zoom lens and a 2-inch flip-out LCD screen., which also records 30fps video in MPEG-4 format – with films and images saved on memory cards.
It’s out this month, priced around £300. Not the best digital camera or camcorder – but one of the best looking and a good all-rounder.
