Sanyo will release the new Dual Camera Xacti, DMX-CG110, at the end of February, 2010. The new compact model based on the Dual Camera concept can capture both Full HD videos and high-definition still photos.
According to specs released by Sanyo, the DMX-CG110 can capture both 1920 x 1080 pixel Full HD videos and 14 mega-pixel high-definition photos. The video format used for this model is MPEG-4 AVC / H.264, which is easy to use on PC and Internet environments, as it is a single file format, similar to the one used for still photos.
The DMX-GG110 also boasts of a newly developed 12x Double-Range Zoom function that can be used when capturing video. This feature is supposed to enable a wider range of video capture by allowing users to switch between different zoom ranges with the touch of a button, just like alternating between two lenses with different zoom ratios. When converted to a 35-mm film basis, this equals a capture range from wide-angle 40 mm up to a 12x zoom of 480 mm.
