  • Summary: It’s not as Tonka toy-sturdy as Olympus’s Tough range of cameras, but the Sanyo is smoother and simpler to use, pumping out solid standard def movies and decent stills, whatever the weather.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA8 review

  • 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?
  • Pros: Funny things happen when you go on holiday. Burgers become an acceptable meal EVERY DAY, drinking your body weight in booze at lunch-time seems like a good idea and it’s all too easy to attempt sporting activities that end in a complicated international insurance claim.

It’s water- and sand-proof, comes with one-touch movie/stills buttons for instant recording and packs both face detection and auto-everything me...
  • Cons: The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA8′s ray-gun styling could cause some problems going through customs. And if that gets you nervous, you’ll need to buy a tripod, as the Xacti’s electronic stabilisation isn’t much cop at steadying shaking hands.

  • Excerpt: The latest pistol-grip Xacti is an update to the company's previous waterproof model, the VPC-CA65EW. Rather than attempting to beat the competition on storage capacity, price or even image quality, Sanyo here is instead going after the niche market of swimmers, surfers and careless holidaymakers who want the novelty or peace of mind of a submersible camcorder.
