Go waterproof with Sanyo Xacti CA6 digicam


Splash! There goes the camera!

It’s a common enough scenario: You buy that super fly digital camera, take it to the pool or the beach, and then you find it doesn’t go well with water.

Sanyo has solved that problem for you with the Xacti CA6, a water-resistant digital camera that boasts 6 megapixels and camcorder capabilities. For those incredible closeups, there’s the twin zoom options of 5x optical and 12x digital.

If you ask me, the screen is a bit small: it’s just 2 inches. And the MPEG movies that you can record go only up to 640 x 480 pixels. Still, it’s not the end of the world if you drop this camera in the drink, and that’s it’s biggest selling point.

The Sanyo Xacti CA6 is coming soon to a digital vendor near you, and early word is that it will run you about US$400.
