Sanyo introduces VPC-C4 camera for US market
It's easy to be spontaneous when shooting photos and video with the new Sanyo VPC-C4 Digital Media Camera. A pocket-sized, high-resolution 4.0 megapixel digital camera and full-motion MPEG-4 camcorder, the Sanyo VPC-C4 offers built-in digital image stabilization for accurate, steady shooting. Users can choose real-time interpolation to convert the CCD's 4.0 effective megapixels to a recorded equivalent of 8.0 megapixels, ideal for clear printouts of large and detailed images. A trans-reflective 1.8-inch TFT LCD color monitor allows for easy shot framing and playback. Following last year's successful introduction of the Fisher FVD-C1, the VPC-C4 is the first Digital Media Camera to be introduced in the U.S. market under the Sanyo brand name. It has also been selected for a prestigious 2005 CES Innovations Award. Manufacturer's suggested retail price is TBA. Availability is scheduled for 1st Half 2005.
Sanyo VPC-C4
"Sanyo brings its proprietary imaging technology and design excellence to the next level with the VPC-C4," said Tom Van Voy, Vice President of Sanyo Fisher Company’s Audio Video Division. "As a recognized leader in the fast-emerging category of Digital Media Cameras, Sanyo is expanding its U.S. business by building a strong product line with wide appeal."

Completely "tapeless," the VPC-C4 records both digital still images and video onto a standard SD flash memory card. Compact enough to fit easily into a pocket or purse, the thumb-operable 'C4' easily captures spontaneous moments, and recorded files can be quickly uploaded via USB 2.0 to a PC or Mac for viewing and sharing via e-mail.
