Report Photokina 2010 - Sanyo introduces the VPC-PD1 camcorder with Full HD videos and 10 megapixel digital camera with 3x optical zoom. Minimal dimensions with maximum performance - that’s what the new pocket camcorder Xacti PD1 from SANYO has to offer. Although the ultra-compact PD1 (63.1 x 22.0 x 110.8 millimetres) is not much bigger than a mobile phone, the Sanyo Xacti PD1 mini camcorder comes with an impressive range of technical features. For example, the Sanyo Xacti PD1 camcorder can shoot videos in Full HD with 1.080 30p, and the 3x optical zoom allows you to zoom in clearly on distant objects. The Sanyo Xacti PD1 mini camcorder will be presented for the first time at the Photokina Show.

At the Sanyo booth we were surprised to see the new Sanyo Xacti model that has just been release in Japan. We took some time to sort things out and manage to get an overview of the features of the new Sanyo Xacti DMX-CG6 digital compact camera. The Sanyo Xacti CA6 incorporates a richly detailed 6.37 Megapixel CCD and Sanyo's proprietary image-adaptive data processing technology. This ensures low noise in dark areas, as well as more beautiful realization of skin colors. A high-powered 5x optical zoom lens lets you get up close and personal with your subject, even more so if you pair it with the 12x digital zoom. In Europe the new Sanyo CG6 digital camera will be available next year.
