Earlier this month, we showed you some pics and specs for the Sanyo Xacti HD1 high definition digital media camera—from Portugal—but we can now safely introduce the new product, which will be shown at CES. Being touted as the world's smallest (3.1" W x 4.7" H x 1.4" D) and lightest (8.3 ounces) HD digital media camera, it can record both 720p high-definition video and 5.1 megapixel digital still images to a standard SD flash memory card and is going for about $800 in March of 2006. What makes it so high-end is its high-precision LSI (large-scale integration) for image processing, which lets it execute a vast number of calculations in a short period of time. An ultra-clear 2.2-inch SANYO-developed OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees for easier shooting options. Other features include a 10x optical zoom lens, 5.36 megapixel CCD and 16:9 widescreen format.
