Water splashes stopping you from taking photos under the sun? Now you can brave the elements and snap away with Sanyo's Xacti VPC-CA6.

The SANYO VPC-CA6 weatherproof digital movie camera

 

December 14, 2006 We've always thought it was kinda dumb that cameras should be so averse to water - they are, after all, there to capture special moments and some of those moments occur while it's raining. So it's partly with disbelief that we are...

Featuring MPEG-4 digital recording for DVD movie quality, with high resolution of 6.0 megapixels, the SANYO VPC-CA6 captures high quality images producing professional looking footage of holidays, sporting events and family events

Expert Review

 

While the splash-proof case and tiny design of the Xacti VPC-CA6 will appeal to some, those after good quality video and stills with an easy to operate control setup should look elsewhere.

Splash proof, tiny design

Low light performance, irritating controls, digital still pictures not up to par

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA6 review

 

An extreme bargain or just annoying?

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA6

 

Sanyo's VPC-CA6 excels at being small, portable and easy to understand. Using it, however, reveals more than a few flaws in the implementation of its design.

Splash-proof casing ; Small physical size ; Records direct to SD

Buttons are stiff and unresponsive ; Poor in-built microphone ; Focus problems

The VPC-CA6 on paper looks like a cute gadget, and ultimately that's exactly what it is, with all the limitations that the word gadget brings with it. Anyone with AU$800 to spend could do a lot better in terms of configurable video cameras than the...

Sanyo Xacti CA6

 

Sanyo has once again come up with a great product in my opinion, a water resistant Digital Camera. The Xacti CA6 is splash proof, and specifically designed for easy one handed point and click shooting

This camera/video camera hybrid is water- and snow-resistant, but is it critic-proof?

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA6

 

Despite fashionable talk about convergence, few devices pay more than lip service to the concept of integrated digital imaging. Most cameras include a basic movie mode and many camcorders can capture sub-mobile phone stills

You won't reach for the Sanyo for wedding photos but for everyday shooting - and especially for outdoor activities - it's almost ideal. The Xacti is small, convenient, easy to use and weatherproof, and gives good enough pictures when the alternative is...
