This dual-function still-and-video camera is right at home on ski slopes, at the beach, or even underwater. With no need for a bulky separate shell, the compact CA8 is fully waterproof for up to an hour at water depths of up to 1.5 meters. Adopting the high-compression MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, the Xacti CA8 records 60 VGA frames per second at the DVD-like resolution of 640 × 480 pixels. Because MPEG-4 files are small, they’re easy to handle and you can fit more of them on your memory card. The CA8’s high-sensitivity images look superb on big-screen TVs, with videos kept shake-free thanks to the digital image stabilizer. The CA8 can detect faces and adjust the focus accordingly. Faces are sensed even when moving, allowing you to track up to 12 people in the frame. Automatic exposure is applied according to the area, while automatic focus captures the person at the center of the frame. What’s more, you can zoom in on faces during playback.
