Sanyo new Xacti VPC-PD2BK set to crush the useless Flip Camera
Ok, I have to admit I never understood why people are crazy about the Flip… Sure the Flip has an interested design and the concept is well done, but good lord, did you see the rubbish quality coming out a Flip? For years Sanyo had Xacti better equipped than Flip’s one and at almost equivalent price, but Today it seems that Sanyo, thankfully, decided to do the world a favor by “nuking” once and for all crappy video by announcing the VPC-PD2BK.
Announced at $169.99 USD (MSRP), the VPC-PD2BK, comes with a 10Mpix censor for Photo, a 3x Optical Zoom (Take That Flip), 1080/30p video recording, SDXC support, HDMI and USB power (Can be rechargeable via USB) and 37mm Wide Angle Lens.
Personally I can’t wait to see this baby and play with it !
The new pocket-size dual camera makes it a snap to shoot, connect, view and share both photos and videos on social networks like YouTube, Facebook, and Picasa. Two microphones on the sides of the camera record stereo sound.
“The new PD2BK delivers amazing 10MP photos and 1080 archive quality video with 3x optical zoom,” says Tom Van Voy, Vice President and General Manager of the Digital Solutions Division for SANYO North America. “Now users have both a convenient, ultra easy form factor and archive quality photos and videos that they will be proud to display on their HDTVs or share with friends and family from their computer.”
The SANYO VPC-PD2BK has a High Speed Sequential Shooting Mode usually found on more expensive or larger cameras. Connect using USB with either a built-in USB connector or with the included USB connection cable.
Files can be saved to SD, SDHC or ultra-high capacity SDXC (up to 64GB) memory cards.
