    At just 1.06-inches thick, the VPC-CS1 shoots video at full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, and in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. Sanyo reports the device is also undergoing official certification to support iFrame – a video format designed by Apple to speed up importing and editing by keeping the content in its native recorded format while editing. Although it was developed by Apple, the computer-friendly format can be used with both Mac and PC.

    A choice of three microphone modes (Sound Zoom Mode) for capturing audio give you very clear sound. A Wide Mode captures audio from a wide angle with high stereo separation; Gun mode focuses on sound emanation from the direction the camera is pointing; and Zoom Combination mode automatically changes the settings according to the camera’s zoom setting.


    The camera’s 38-mm wide-angle lens with 9x optical zoom captures still images at 3.3-megapixels, and enhanced and recorded as 8-megapixel images. Still image features include a Digital Image Stabilizer, Face Chaser Function, Target a Color Function and Sequential Shot, which is capable of 20 shots at 6fps.

    The Sanyo VPC-CS1 also has 2.7-inch TFT widescreen display, and the Li-ion battery is rated at around 200 still shots, 60 minutes of video, and 210 minutes of continuous playback.


    The VPC-CS1 is so slim because it has slim guts.  A slim sensor module and a new super slim lens help the VPC-CS1 get down to a featherweight 5.6 oz including battery and SD card.  It measures 2.5 (W) x 1.06 (D) x 4.8 (H) inches.

    Finally, the Sanyo VPC-CS1 includes a mini HDMI terminal for direct connection to a HDTV and can store content on SD, SDHC (up to 32 GB) and SDXC (up to 64 GB) memory cards. Sanyo’s Dual Camera Xacti VPC-CS1 is available now at MSRP of $299.
