Sanyo Xacti DMX-CA8

CNET
29 December 2008
  • Summary: You have to ask yourself whether you'd rather take an average camcorder like the Sanyo Xacti DMX-CA8 on your adventures, or a high-quality model with a clunky protective case. It laughs in the face of snow, sand and sea -- as long as you can live with the unremarkable end results
  • Pros: Weatherproof construction.
  • Cons: Fiddly joystick; average image quality.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA8 review

PriceRunner
30 March 2009
  • Excerpt: This eight-megapixel hybrid camera-camcorder has a 2.5-inch LCD and 5x zoom lens. You can also record 640×480-pixel H.264 files at 60fps, with stereo sound, and it’s waterproof to 1.5m. Impressed by this pistol- camcorder yet? Read on…

  • Excerpt: The latest pistol-grip Xacti is an update to the company's previous waterproof model, the VPC-CA65EW.

Wasserfester SD-Camcorder: Sanyo Xacti CA8

CNET
10 February 2009
  • Summary: Die 300-Euro-Frage lautet: Soll es im Abenteuerurlaub lieber ein durchschnittlicher Camcorder wie der Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA8 sein oder eher ein hochwertiges Modell in einer klobigen Schutzhülle? Schnee, Sand und Meerwasser können dem Sanyo nichts anhaben.

  • Cons: fummeliger Joystick, durchschnittliche Bildqualität
