The world’s first waterproof full HD camcorder has been created by Sanyo and it’s part of Sanyo’s small line of Xacti camcorders.
Called the DMX-CA100, the camcorder features a 14 megapixel lens with 6 times of optical zoom augmented by a 6x “Advanced Zoom” which won’t blow the pixels like a regular zoom, but crops the image sensor. The camcorder is capable of recording full 1080p video for about an hour at a depth of 3 meters. The IPX8 water resistant device also features another shooting mode which will allow its user to shoot at 7Fps for up to 22 shots.
The Sanyo DMX-CA100 waterproof camcorder will be available for purchase starting with June and comes in black, pink, and yellow but, for the moment, there are no details about pricing.
