This new Xacti is waterproof, to an extent. The thing is, its not some weak extent like you can splash it and probably still be safe, no, you can take this thing up to 1.5 meters deep and hold and use it there for up to an hour.
This is the latest effort from Sanyo to penetrate the market of the common/casual user with their video cameras. It still supports H.264 video which is great for those major YouTube uploaders out there, but its been fattened up due to surveys of the general public.
Amazon is selling the Xacti HD700 for $299, 50% off retail price. The compact HD camcorder captures 720p HD videos. It takes decent pictures but did terrible in low light environment. It records directly to an SD (SDHC) card and sports HDMI output. We recently purchased one for $349 during the black Friday from Amazon.com, but now Amazon.com is lowering the price even more. It's a decent HD camcorder, especially this compact; we are getting another one!
This nifty little digital camcorder has an amazingly small size and a form factor perfect for holding in your hand. It’s so small in fact, that it’s the world’s smallest 720p HD movie camera. The geniuses at Sanyo even threw in a quick standby mode that allows the camera to go from standby to filming in 1.3 seconds.
You can take pictures and record movies with this multi-colored camera. Both video and still images get stored on either an SD or SDHC card. Like I said, it will do 720p video or you can shoot stills at 7.1MP.
Sanyo’s latest is a real beauty, and it shoots 1080p video too. It records in either MPEG-4 AVC or H.264 formats.
There is also a generous 10x optical zoom. They 2.7-inch LCD folds out (from where?) and allow you to view what you are shooting. You can also use the cam for 8MP still shots.

In an effort to reduce development process to fabricate a much competitive and high resolution surveillance camera in the increasingly popular security-segment of digital camera industry; Sanyo turned to its company’s 4MP production camcorder, whipped out a full HD resolution networked surveillance Camera based on the goodies and image processing engine from the “Xacti” camcorder.
Panasonic has confirmed pricing details for its latest digital camera and camcorder range, including the LUMIX FH7 with the company's bizarre Beauty Retouch mode that allows you to make anybody look like Dame Barbara Cartland.

Monday's here and we've got another week ahead of us. And today's already been pretty busy, considering Apple's gone and outed the official release date of their upcoming OS, and even Nokia got some netbook action unveiled. And while I'm sure someone at Sanyo cares about all of that, we're sure they're thinking you should be more excited about a small camcorder that's capable of recording at 720p. And, if that's not all, there's something else that might entice you to grab this little camera.
This new digital camcorder from Vivitar isn’t giving up the goods, so we don’t have much information. However we do know that it’s an SD card recorder working with up to 4GB SD cards and it can record in H.264 at up to 720p.
