Sanyo's MPEG4 cam
It appears that very soon no self-respecting camcorder will reach the stores without an MPEG4 option for creating low res videos you can e-mail or use on your website. Spotted at the CEATEC exhibition in Tokyo this week was the Sanyo Xacti, an MPEG4 cam. Our correspondent, who is not fluent in Japanese, couldn’t work out whether it stores its footage on to a hard disk or an SD card. We reckon it is probably the former. Given Sanyo’s fairly low profile in the UK camcorder market we are unlikely to see it here though.
