Social networking addicts have a new entry-level camcorder to play with in Sanyo's VPC-GH4. For $200, this newest addition to Sanyo's Xacti line purportedly offers easy tagging and uploading of videos and pictures to sites like Youtube, Facebook, and Picassa. Twitter users will also benefit from the bundled software, which serves up a convenient link for use with the microblogging service, Sanyo says.
"More than ever, consumers are interested in easy to use imaging solutions that deliver with cutting edge technology," says Tom Van Voy , General Manager of the Consumer Solutions Group for SANYO North America. He added, "SANYO’s GH4 offers the perfect blend of style and performance while recording archive quality photos and videos that people will be proud to display on their HDTVs or share with friends and family from their computer."
Looking over the spec sheet, Sanyo has a compelling package in the budget camcorder arena. The $200 Xacti boasts 10MP photos, a 2.7-inch LCD monitor, Full HD videos at 1080, 60i (1920x1080), 10X dual range optical zoom, SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card support, and mini-HDMi port.
This one will start shipping sometime this month.
