Sanyo Xacti 2.0 camera
Sanyo's newest camera is the DMX-CG65, also known as the Xacti 2.0. Based on the design of the C6, the principal upgrade is the expanded storage capacity, since it can now handle SDHC cards as well, granting capacities of 4GB or higher. An 8GB SDHC card can hold up to 10 hours of VGA video at 30fps. Helping is the addition of the H.264 codec, which may be particularly useful for its support on iPods. In still mode, meanwhile, the camera takes advantage of its full six megapixels, interpolating if necessary to 10 megapixels. Light sensitivity ranges from ISO 50 to 1600. The camera will first go on sale in Japan in late April.
