Product Description Take stunning Full HD 1080 60i video and up to 14 megapixel digital photos underwater! The compact Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti CA100 delivers high performance results with multiple features normally found on much higher priced video and photo cameras. It delivers amazing 12X dual range zoom for video and 5x optical zoom for photos. The CA100’s upright, vertical design is extremely portable and easy to use on land or underwater. The CA100 offers face chasing technology which automatically reads and corrects focus and lighting for up to 12 different subjects. Its compact design makes the CA100 extremely portable and easy to use. Videos, still photos, camera menus and settings can be easily accessed with the user’s thumb. The CA100’s MPEG4/H.264 recording format makes sharing videos and photos via social networking web sites, portable video devices like iPod’s, TV’s and computers, a breeze. Offering unprecedented waterproof Full HD 1080 video with 14MP digital photos, the CA100 provides a convenient way to capture both videos and photos in daily life or for special events.
High Performance and Stylish Design Made Simple The Dual Camera CA100 packs cutting edge technology into a small, stylish, easy to use camera. The CA100 can be used to a depth of 3 meters underwater for up to 60 minutes: meets the IPX8 standard based on JIS C 0920 waterproofing guidelines. It can be used in outdoor situations (in the rain, snorkeling, surfing, water skiing, snow skiing and snowboarding). Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, the CA100 features an easy to navigate menu which make it a great choice for the beginner and the more advanced user. It is the perfect blend of style, performance, and ease of use.
Full HD 1080 Video and 14 Megapixel Still Image Quality In addition to delivering Full HD 1080 video quality, the CA100 captures amazing 14 megapixel photos. Separate photo and video recording buttons allow images to be captured easily without changing modes.
12x Dual Range Zoom (video)
5x Optical Zoom (photos) While the CA100 is quite small in size, it features a full 12x Dual Range Zoom for video. With SANYO’s 12x Dual Range Zoom Technology the field of view is dramatically increased. It offers an extensive range for capturing video from wide angle to telephoto zoom for distant scenery, with a magnification of up to 12x (40 mm to 480 mm; 35-mm film basis). With a touch of the Zoom Range Button, the Dual Range Zoom feature allows switching between two zoom ranges; a Wide Mode (40 mm to 240 mm) and a Tele Mode (80 mm to 480 mm). This allows you to alternate between two lenses with different zoom ratios. It effectively changes the size of the video capture area on the image sensor. The photo zoom capability is 5x Optical Zoom.
Large, 2.7-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions, proving to be especially useful when shooting in confined spaces.
High Speed Sequential Photo Mode The CA100 features a sequential “photo” shooting mode. When this mode is selected, the camera will take multiple photos in sequential order; providing multiple photo frames. It enables capturing up to 22 photos at 7 frames per second (in 2M continuous mode). This allows the camera to be used with confidence even in situations where photo opportunities can easily be missed. The perfect solution for action photography!
These advanced imaging features are provided as a result of SANYO’s high-speed CMOS sensor and the new, high-speed, video processing engine.
Sophisticated Image Stabilizer The CA100 features a new photo stabilizer. This technology actually takes two photos at the same time; one at a faster shutter speed and one at a slower shutter speed. The camera combines the benefits of both of the shutter speeds, resulting in an image that has less blur and less noise.
Using a proprietary SANYO algorithm, the CA100 automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping the subject steady and easy to follow. It accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement. This handy feature operates in both wide-angle and telephoto modes.
Video and Photo Face Detection The CA100 utilizes specialized video and photo face detection technology. This feature recognizes multiple subjects’ faces and optimizes focus / aperture settings to ensure each individual is in focus.
Eye-Fi Compatibility The CA100 features enhanced Eye-Fi compatibility. This Dual Camera will automatically recognize the Eye-Fi wireless SD card when it is inserted. The CA100 also has “smart power” on board which allows the camera to control the Eye-Fi function and provide power management, automatically shutting the card off when not in use.
Easily Follow Moving Objects with Object Chaser Technology The CA100 is capable of “object chasing”; a feature which allows you to maintain proper lighting and focus on objects in motion. This is a great way to capture video of family members and pets on the move!
Windows 7 Compatible The CA100 is fully supported by the latest Windows® OS, “Windows 7”, further expanding its capabilities. The video files are displayed in the same thumbnail format as still picture files. They can also be played back directly with Windows Media Player, are editable with Windows Live Movie Maker, and are Device Stage compatible. This makes the files even more convenient for use on computers.
Easy Playback of Recorded Video Directly on a TV The CA100 camera features a mini-HDMI output which makes connecting it to a Digital TV or DVD Recorder a breeze. The CA100 can also easily be connected to a computer to back-up copies of recorded content via the handy USB 2.0 connection. Still images and video clips are played back continuously and in chronological order. When connected to a PC, simple drag-and-drop operation makes it easy to save recorded video clips and still images onto a computer's hard disk for emailing, editing or archiving.
Includes a High-Capacity Sanyo Brand Lithium-ion Battery The DB-L80 is a high capacity battery designed to work with the SANYO Dual Camera CA100 camera and delivers approximately 70 minutes of video record time. High-energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in the CA100. It designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time.
SDXC Memory Compatibility (over 64GB SD Cards) While the CA100 works with standard SD memory, and more high capacity SDHC memory cards, it is also fully compatible with the next generation SDXC memory cards. The CA100 can record to more than 64GB of content to SDXC memory cards. This dramatically improves your ability to record and transfer hours and hours of Full HD 1080 videos to a computer. You can also play CA100 Full HD 1080 videos stored on SDXC cards on your high definition TV.
Highly Advanced MPEG4 AVC/H.264 Video Compression This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or e-mailing them to friends and family, even easier. In fact, the file size can be up to 25 percent smaller than that of typical MPEG-4 cameras.
To accomplish the complexity of encoding AVC/H.264 in real-time on the CA100, a dedicated H.264 video compression IC was incorporated into the camera that was designed specifically for portable consumer devices. This achieves high video quality while simultaneously reducing the system power consumption.
Easily Transfer Video and Still Images to your Video Capable iPod Import video and still image files directly into iTunes software and then port them to your video-capable iPod. Share your latest masterpiece with friends and family.
Record over 16 Hours of Full Motion Video The CA100 supports the SD memory card standard making it easy to capture videos, photos, and sound recordings in a reliable, easy-to-use format. SD memory cards are available in three capacity formats: SD, SDHC (up to 32GB) and SDXC (up to 64GB available today). The newest generation is SDXC (Extended Capacity) which supports increased storage capacities up to 2TB along with faster read and write operations. Using a 32GB SDHC memory card with the CA100, you can capture over 16 hours worth of standard definition, full motion video or up to 4 hours in Full HD 1080 video mode.
Capture still images while you’re shooting video The CA100 enables simultaneous shooting of video clips and still images with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a movie clip. You will never need to miss another precious photo opportunity. (Depending on the mode used to take still images, simultaneous video clip shooting may be interrupted. While shooting video clips, using the digital image stabilizer may change the angle of view for still images.)
Super-fast Start-up Reduce the chance of missing the perfect shot. The Dual Camera CA100 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the CA100 eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds! When the CA100 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. Simply open the display and the CA100 automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as 1.7 seconds.
World Class Design The CA100 offers the latest advancements in SANYO’s revolutionary line of Dual Camera products. It provides the ultimate in performance, style, and sleek design. The CA100 is ultra-compact and easy to use on land or in the water.
