Sanyo Xacti CG6 in US

Sanyo on Tuesday officially confirmed the US release of two new Xacti models recently announced for Japan. The CG65 is Sanyo's first DV camera to capture footage in the efficient H.264 format: thanks to support for the recent SDHC format, it can record up to 10 hours of NTSC (640x480) video on an 8GB card. Also present are gyroscopic sensors to stabilize the image, a 10X optical zoom lens, and the ability to capture 6-megapixel still images while recording videos.

The more mainstream CG6 shares all the same features save for H.264 recording, according to the company; it opts instead for larger MPEG-4 clips that provide up to eight hours of video. The CG65 and CG6 will both go on sale in April at prices of $400 and $330 respectively.
