Sanyo Introduces VPC-GH4 to Xacti line with YouTube and Facebook integration

Sanyo has announced a successor to the VPC-GH2: a full-HD video recorder with 10x dual range optical zoom for video and 5x zoom for photos. It also features a High Speed Sequential Shooting Mode, usually only found on more expensive cameras, as well as digital image stabilization, face detection technology, and a “target-a-color” mode to keep a non-face subject in focus. It features an easy uploader that sends videos to YouTube, Facebook, Picasa, and Twitter, and also saves to SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards. There is also support fo Enhanced Eye-Fi memory cards, including a power-save function that shuts off power to the card when not in use. The camera only takes 10 megapixel still photos – the GH2 took 14MP shots – but it costs $199, a whole $30 cheaper than its predecessor.

SANYO North America Corporation (SANYO), introduces a new Dual Camera, model VPC-GH4, featuring Full HD 1080 60i Video and 10MP Digital Photos with dual range zoom up to 10X for videos. With its ergonomic compact body size, the VPC-GH4 puts advanced features and ease of use in the palm of the user’s hand. The camera includes two-position recording buttons so the user can easily capture ground-level scenes as well as eye-level. The camera will be available for purchase in late September, in time for the holiday gift season, with an MSRP of $199.99.

“More than ever, consumers are interested in easy to use imaging solutions that deliver with cutting edge technology,” says Tom Van Voy, General Manager of the Consumer Solutions Group for SANYO North America. He added, “SANYO’s GH4 offers the perfect blend of style and performance while recording archive quality photos and videos that people will be proud to display on their HDTVs or share with friends and family from their computer.”

Shooting, connecting, viewing and sharing is easy with the GH4. Embedded software allows the photos and videos recorded to be easily shared on social media websites. When the GH4 is connected to the PC, the Simple Updater application installer appears and takes less than a minute to install. The videos and photos can be tagged and quickly uploaded to some of the more popular sites, such as YouTube, Facebook, and Picasa*. The software application also provides a convenient link for use on Twitter*.

The GH4 delivers 10X dual range optical zoom for video and 5X optical zoom for photos. The dual range zoom function is like having two separate lenses on a single camcorder as it includes two forms of optical zoom, wide-angle and telephoto, switchable at the touch of a button.

The SANYO VPC-GH4 also features High Speed Sequential Shooting Mode usually found on more expensive or larger cameras. In addition, the camera offers digital image stabilization and both face detection technology and the “target a color” mode to help track and identify the subject by keeping it in focus when the face is not visible.

Files can be saved to SD, SDHC or ultra-high capacity SDXC (up to 64GB) memory cards. The GH4 is also compatible with Enhanced Eye-Fi memory cards, which allow wireless transfer of recorded photos and videos to enabled PCs. With a special “smart power” function, the camera can control the Eye-Fi function power management, automatically shutting off power to the Eye-fi card when not in use to conserve battery power.

    When are they going to include WiFi to upload directly to Youtube from the camcorder without using a computer? And when are they going to include microphone inputs and wide angle lens on their affordable camcorders? I want a Sanyo HD3000 with built-in WiFi, wide-angle, Bluetooth microphone support, Bluetooth keyboard support for editing titles/descriptions of videos when uploading to Youtube directly from the camcorder. Also I want the best compression technology that does 1080p and 720p at low bitrates keeping high quality. Comon Sanyo, get to work!

    I’ve video-blogged 2000 videos with my Sanyo HD1000 these past 3 years, but now I want something better.
