New in Japan, but heading elsewhere in the coming weeks, is the Sanyo Xacti CG9.

It’s a re-design of the existing camcorder, keeping those retro super-8 looks, but with a slightly fatter shape and easier to use controls. Not the most cutting edge camcorder you’ll see, but the 9.1MP CMOS sensor, 2.5-inch LCD screen, 40MB of internal memory (with SD/SDHC card extension) and 5x optical zoom should all combine to capture your life in decent enough quality.

And it should be cheap. No news of how cheap, but Sanyo claims it will be ‘aggressively priced’ throughout the world, which should make the thing to be seen with this summer.
