|Sanyo Xacti E6 digital camera review : August of this year (2005) Sanyo introduced their new flagship, the Xacti E6. Looking at the specifications it seems we're dealing with a standard digital compact camera. Until our eye caught the information concerning the LCD monitor. The Sanyo Xacti E6 is equipped with a monitor of no less than 3 inches! Sanyo is one of the first manufactures making the step to 3-inch. Only Sony has also created a model with this monitor size. Besides this pleasant feature we notice an additional interesting feature that is unique at this moment, the so-called Touch Sensor. This function is integrated in the release button and enables faster shooting. Just barely touching the release button with your fingertip suffices to get the Sanyo E6 ready to shoot. The touch is, in a sense, equal to pressing the release button halfway down. This trick leads to a stunning response time of 0,05 seconds.
Sanyo E6 housing
The design of the camera is rather sober. It features smooth round shapes and the housing consists of a matte aluminium material. Without a doubt the large sized monitor is perfectly apt for sharing your photos with family and friends. The camera lacks an optical viewfinder, but the 3-inch display makes you forget about this immediately. The monitor is dominating the entire back of the Xacti E6. We can only cheer at the new trend of equipping digital cameras with large sized screens.
Sanyo Xacti E6 Menu
The amount of buttons on the Sanyo Xacti E6 can almost be counted on one hand; there are 6 of them. Although this makes the camera well-organized and neat, it also implies that the user will utilize the menu frequently. And the Sanyo E6's menu is remarkable. There is nothing traditional about it; it's colourful and different from traditional menu structures. The Sanyo Xacti E6 offers the possibility to split the monitor which enables creating a composition during recording while at the same time additional information is exposed below and right from the composition.
Sanyo E6 review
The Sanyo E6 digital camera has become available recently. Although Sanyo has a limited market share of digital cameras under their own brand name, they have a remarkable market share if we look at the OEM market and the production Sanyo offers to renowned A-brands. I was able to use the Sanyo Xacti E6 for a short period of time and my experiences with this camera can be read in the Sanyo Xacti E6 digital camera review.
