Waterproof Digital Camcorder From Sanyo

Sanyo Ups Its Camcorder Game With the Xacti 102YL

Toss the Sanyo into the ring with the other handheld camcorders on the market today, and it just may be the last one standing. Although I already gave the Kodak Playsport my seal of approval, the new Sanyo Xacti 102YL could just take the cake in terms of specs and power. Both the Playsport and the Sanyo are water-friendly — both models can film in up to 10 feet of water — but the Sanyo tops out at eight hours of full HD video recording, has 64GB of memory space (with help from an SD card or Eye-Fi SD card), takes 14MP stills, supports 5X optical zoom (and 12X double-range zoom), and comes with a 2.7-inch TFT LCD display.

Additionally, the Sanyo 102YL comes with a mini-HDMI out port to hook up to your big screen, has "Face Chaser" and "Target a Color" shooting modes, and comes in a bright yellow color so you can spot it in the harshest of conditions. It seems like a pretty good buy for $350, and it will be available this month if you're on the market for a rugged and nicely spec'd camcorder.
