The home of vlogging, freevlog.org, recorded a video review of the Sanyo Xacti Waterproof E1 camera. Thanks to Creative Commons we are able to display the same video for you.
In the video they review; lighting, USB ports, charger, audio, and recored under water!! The E1 is the new addition to Sanyo Xacti family. The camera has a new 6 megapixel capability for still images while viewing your video and pictures in a 2.5" LCD display.
The amazing part of this camera is that has premium H.264 compression that can make the files size about 25% smaller than the normal MPEG 4. Plus, don't forget it can me used underwater!! This is a perfect summer vacation camera and not have to worry about it getting wet!!
I just bought this Sanyo Xacti Waterproof E1 to try to film water polo practices and games and such. I was really dissappointed in the screen resolution when I was in the pool on a sunny day. I couldn’t see what I was filming at all?! Underwater was the same and using goggles didn’t help. The quality of the captured video, however, was very nice. I just wish I could see what I was filming!
I loved you review… very helpful! I think this convinced me to buy one but I still have one question… how is the still camera on the Xacti?
Great review – very helpful and fun to watch! Thanks for sharing this knowledge!
Very good review. Tnx a lot. I had a Xacti CG6 and I am going to buy the E1.
Also interesting to now is that this model supports 16×9 sd video.
I am going to it gripped on windsurf masts and boards.
