At a mere 124 cc, the petite Xacti C5 was designed to suggest an elegant silver-jewelry motif. The hand-grip and lenses are angled to enable a natural shooting style, echoing the ergonomic design of the earlier Xacti C-Series models.
And the Xacti C5's pocket-fitting, super-slender frame will change the way you think about movie cameras ? turning the movie-making process into something much more personal.
SANYO has developed a super high-speed engine that enables you to shoot 5-megapixel stills and MPEG-4 movies simultaneously. While shooting high-resolution movies (VGA/30fps) with the digital image stabilizer, you can take a still photo at a resolution of 5 megapixels without even switching modes. You need never miss another photo opportunity while shooting a movie.
SANYO's original algorithm uses a pixel-interpolation filter to convert the CCD's 5.1 effective megapixels to the recorded equivalent of 10 megapixels (3680 x 2760 pixels). This filter enables clear printouts of detailed images without sacrificing image fidelity, even when printing onto A3 paper or enlarging part of an image. The Xacti C5's slim, 23 mm-wide body comes equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens. Used in conjunction with the digital zoom, it enables up to 60x zooming capability.
Being able to connect the Xacti C5 to a TV, VCR, PC or DVD recorder means you can easily play back recorded images and stills on a large screen, or make back-up copies of your recorded content while you're playing it back. After placing the Xacti C5 in the docking station, you can save recorded video clips and still images onto your computer's hard disk, where they can be edited freely.
