The Sanyo VPC-CA9 is a standard HD and water-proof camcorder that features Sanyo’s proprietary waterproofing technology so that users can record scenes that were previously unreachable due to water’s adverse affects on normal video cameras. The second of two Sanyo VPC SD camcorders, the VPC-CA9 trades in its predecessor’s horizontal shape for a highly-stylish and revolutionary vertical frame instead. In addition, the VPC-CA9 features a 9 (versus 1.1) megapixel image sensor, a 5x (versus 30x) optical zoom lens, and a 2.5” LCD Screen. Like its predecessor, the VPC-CA9 also offers standard high-definition, progressive 720p (1280x720) recording at 30 fpm. Plus, the VPC-CA9 boasts a digital image stabilizer for both photos and videos, auto face tracking, a reverse sequential photo mode intended to help users capture more accurate images, an SD/SDHC card that reads up to 32GB, 43GB of internal memory, and a Lithium-ion battery with a 70 (versus 200) minute running time. The Sanyo DMX-CA9 retails for a slightly more affordable $599.95 (versus $649.95) and comes with a 90 day limited warranty.
