The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA8 is a fully waterproof compact budget standard definition camcorder. Shooting at 640x480 the VPC-CA8 outputs AVC/H.264 MPEG-4 to its 44MB internal memory or loaded SDHC card (a 1GB card can contain up to 1 hour and 20 minutes of footage). The VPC-CA8 really shines with images, as the camera sports a 8MP CMOS sensor and 8 resolution settings. While a considerably advanced SD camcorder, the pitiful 44MB onboard flash and a lack of included SDHC card seems spartan, even when standard footage takes up much less room than high definition content. A slightly cheaper version, the Xacti VPC-CA65 includes less internal memory and a 6MP CCD.
