Sanyo Xacti E1


Sanyo's Xacti E1 is an excellent flash-based camcorder that's also waterproof.

Sleek and durable design ; Sharp video and still images ; Waterproof to 5 feet ; Submersible microphone

LCD washes out in a bit bright sunlight ; Doesn't float

Sanyo Xacti E1 review


And in that respect, though we're not exactly swimming in waterproof cameras, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1 has some strong competition, notably the Olympus Stylus 770SW and the Pentax Optio W30 . Though the E1 incorporates a 5x zoom lens, the other models...

Frequently captures surprisingly high-quality still photos; waterproof.

Awkward, frustrating design; slow focus.

If underwater YouTubing were a market segment, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1 would be the camera to get. But the awkward design and slow performance make it hard to recommend for landlubbers.
