Film buffs, holidaymakers, wedding guests and undercover spies may all be interested in the new Sanyo Xacti VPC-S1EX-B camcorder. It offers several novel features and a wide range of specifications. Let’s look at it in more detail.
It scores highly on the dinkyometer, as it should when it is hailed as the world’s smallest, thinnest and lightest full HD camcorder. It also comes in a range of colours to suit most tastes, including a pink one which you can safely buy as your niece’s birthday present.
This is a dual camera, meaning that you can take videos or still photos of equally good quality without having to switch manually from one mode to the other.
There is a 38mm wide angle lens, 10x optical zoom and full HD capability, three things which you don’t see side by side every day. When used to take still pictures you get 8 megapixel photos, so that’s alright then.
There is a choice of three audio modes, to help you get the best sound on your recordings. You can save your work onto SD, SDHC or SDXC memory cards.
Look online and you will find this lovely and practical little dual camcorder for under £250, which is a splendid price for what it offers.
