Although it boasts a very compact form factor, the Xacti CG20 can record Full HD videos at 1920 × 1080 resolution, along with genuine high-resolution photos. SANYO developed a new proprietary high-speed image-processing engine to deliver high image quality in a compact package. The engine is designed to reduce power consumption and provide optimal operation in conjunction with the CMOS image sensor. What’s more, the CG20 employs a newly developed 5x optical zoom function for video shooting. This further expands the shooting area for all situations from wide to telephoto.
Despite being a Full High-Definition video camera, the Xacti CG20 can capture realistic 10-megapixel photos just like those taken with a dedicated digital camera. It can even record higher-resolution images at up to 12 megapixels, using real-time interpolation technology*1.
It used to be that camcorders were reserved only for special occasions. The concept behind the Xacti series, though, was to make it possible to record video clips of spontaneous everyday happenings. Based on this concept, SANYO has developed a range of devices compact enough to carry anywhere and use anytime. With the Xacti CG20, the ergonomic, rounded form is designed to feel comfortable in your hand—it’s the ideal combination of small size and easy usability.
