|Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 digital camera review : The Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 EX digital camera was presented last year October in a tête-à-tête with the Dutch press in Scheveningen. As we have experienced before, it takes a long time before the product is actually available on the market. We were given the opportunity to test this contemporary Sanyo camera in practice. The Xacti VPC-C1 EX, it is about time to do something about the product names that Sanyo uses, is a stylish developed digital camera with its own face.
Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 - Unique appearance
At the time of the press conference last year, an instant comparison was made with a mobile phone or electric shaver. Personally I find the comparison with a shaver, without pulling the camera down, the most appropriate one. The camera is very compact and has a unique appearance, also because of its design. The new Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 EX is an advanced combination of video and camera in one. By the way, the name Xacti is a combination of Exact & Active. Introducing this new model Sanyo wants to create a segment for a new target group. The Sanyo C1 EX is most likely to be a token of what is still to come this year.
Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 - Movie function
Beside the possibility of taking 3.2 Megapixel images, the Sanyo Xacti C1 EX is equipped with a Movie function. Someone whose heart longs for the possibility of making videos, but doesn't want to be burdened with a video camera, will really be attracted to this camera. The movies are recorded in MPEG4 quality.
Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 - Docking station
The camera is compact and light-weighted and fits perfectly in ones trousers or breast pocket. The camera is standard delivered with a beautiful docking station and Sanyo is one of the very few manufacturers that was thoughtful enough to supply the camera standard with a 128MB Secure Digital memory card. Whether this is found back in the price tag can be read further down in this review. I have used the Sanyo Xacti VPC-C1 EX thoroughly in practice and my experiences are found in the following review.
