Sanyo's waterproof Xacti CA8 camcorder launches in the UK


xacti_waterproof.jpgWe saw this in Japan a couple of months back, but now the Sanyo Xacti CA8 has got an official launch in the UK.

The big selling point here is obviously the waterproof aspect, good for up to 1.5m for an hour. Other features include video recording and still shots with the 8 megapixel sensor, a 2.5-inch LCD screen, auto-focus, 5x zoom, a ‘Face Chaser’ function for better people shots, storage via SDHC card, direct uploading to YouTube (or other online sites) and pistol-grip operation for one-handed shooting.

Take your pick from metallic white, blue or orange, all selling for £249 from the end of June.
