Sanyo XACTI SH1 and CS1 hands-on

Sanyo XACTI SH1 and CS1 hands-on

Sanyo's two newest XACTI Full HD camcorders only saw their official reveal a short while ago, but we persuaded some executives from the company to demonstrate the VPC-SH1 and VPC-CS1 to us ahead of schedule.  The most impressive aspect of the pair is the amount of bulk which Sanyo have been able to shave off: the CS1 (the upright model) is particularly narrow at just 1.06-inches wide, despite being able to capture HD footage.

Liquid Image VideoMasks hands-on

If you're considering a new camera or camcorder, you're probably not narrowing down your options by whether you can mount them on your head or not; still, if you're a diver, swimmer or snowboarder then Liquid Image could have a few models for you.  We caught up with the company's goggle-integrated "videomasks" - which range in price from $79 to $350 - at CES 2010; more details and live images after the cut.

Memorex MyVideo & MyVideo HD camcorders squeeze into crowded market

Memorex MyVideo & MyVideo HD camcorders squeeze into crowded market

Memorex obviously reckon there's a gap in the market - seriously, where? - for yet another point-and-shoot camcorder, and so they've announced not one but two of the little devils.  Looking somewhat curvier than what's on offer from Flip, Creative and Kodak, the Memorex MyVideo (MCC221) and Memorex MyVideo HD (MCC225) each offer an integrated USB port, digital zoom and 2-inch LCD display, with the MyVideo capturing up to 2hrs of VGA quality footage to its 2GB of internal storage, while the MyVideo has 4GB for up to 1hr of presumably 720p video.

Each also grabs still shots - the MyVideo at VGA resolution, the MyVideo HD at a presumably interpolated 5-mexapixels - and has onboard software to make uploading to Flickr, YouTube and other sites straightforward.  Memorex quote up to 5hrs of battery life for the low-res model and half that for the HD version.
