Sanyo Xacti CG9

Sanyo this morning boosted the Xacti camcorder line with the CG9. The pocket camcorder records video at standard definition but includes one of Sanyo's sharpest-ever CMOS sensors, allowing it to record native still shots at 9.1 megapixels. Enhanced processing also lets it capture short bursts at five frames per second. For its primary movie mode, the CG9 records using AVC (H.264) and can fit about an hour of high-quality footage for every 1GB of memory on an SD card; SDHC support allows this newest Xacti to hold at least 32GB of storage with the right cards.

In addition to these recording features, Sanyo also promises a new 5X optical zoom lens, 12-point face detection, and a relatively large 2.5-inch LCD. The camera is natively recognized by iMovie 08 as well as other newer movie software, the company adds. Versions in black or silver will be available by mid-April for $280.
