I’ve always been a fan of Sanyo’s “pistol grip” high definition Xacti camcorders, and there are now reports that those lucky Japanese will be the first to get hold of the new Xacti CG11 HD.
Looking at the basic specifications, it’s not a huge step up from the CG10. It still shoots in 720p HD using the H.264 format — you’ll need to pay more if you want full 1080p recording — and can take SDHC cards up to 32GB.
That’s it! That’s all I can fathom. Hopefully there’ll be more information in the next couple of weeks before it launches on September 11. No news on international availability yet. Comes in white, orange and green and will cost around 30,000 Yen ($320).
