Akihabaranews.com : Sanyo Xacti, the buzz cam power in your pocket !

This “toy” is as big as a pack of cigarettes (68 x 100 x 35 mm and 150g) but Sanyo managed to put a digital camera, camcorder, flash, “large” screen, stereo microphone, control buttons, SD card reader and all the connectivity that you need in (…) really, really impressive.I was surprised by the quality of the videos and photos which is as good as any middle range product from the most famous companies, but more about that later.
