10x Advanced Optical Zoom (video)

9x Optical Zoom (photos)

While the SANYO CS1 HD digital video camera measures in at just over 1″ in width, it features a full10x Advanced Optical Zoom for video.

With Sanyo’s 10x Advanced Optical Zoom Technology the field of view is dramatically increased.

The photo zoom capability is 9x Optical Zoom.

Large, 2.7-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions, proving to be especially useful when shooting in confined spaces.

Sound Zoom
Audio is an important part of capturing life’s most important moments.

CS1 HD camcorders deliver Sound Zoom in three individual modes which focus the audio recording to match the relative location of the subject in the video.

In wide mode, the
Sanyo CS1 HD video camera allows the user to record very realistic audio with clear left and right channel separation.
The Zoom Mic Mode produces enhanced audio clarity.

The audio recording is focused more on the camera subject.

The Zoom Combination Mode provides an automatic combination of the first two modes.

When the user is shooting a wider angle shot they will get the advantages of the wide mode setting.

As they zoom in on a specific subject, the audio will become much more focused and provide the benefits experienced in the Zoom Mic Mode.

All audio is recorded in AAC format which make it very compatible with multiple devices.

High Speed Sequential Photo Mode.
Take 8 megapixel pictures like the pros with sequential shooting.

The perfect solution for action photography!

Video and Photo Image Stabilizer

The Sanyo CS1 HD digital video camera features a new photo stabilizer. This technology actually takes two photos at the same time; one at a faster shutter speed and one at a slower shutter speed.

The camera combines the benefits of both of the shutter speeds, resulting in an image that has less blur and less noise.
Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the SANYO CS1 HD camcorder automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your video and photo subjects steady and easy to follow.

It accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement. This handy feature operates in both wide-angle and telephoto modes.

Video and Photo Face Detection

The CS1 HD digital video camera recognizes up to 12 faces for videos, still pictures and optimizes focus / aperture settings to ensure all subjects are in focus.

Eye Fi Compatibility

Sanyo CS1 HD camcorders feature enhanced Eye-Fi compatibility. This Dual Camera will automatically recognize the Eye-Fi wireless SD card when it is inserted.

The Sanyo CS1 also has “smart power” on board which allows the cameras to control the Eye-Fi function and provide power management, automatically shutting the card off when not in use.

Windows 7 Compatible

The CS1 is fully supported by the latest Windows OS, “Windows 7″, further expanding its capabilities. The video files are displayed in the same thumbnail format as still picture files.

They can also be played back directly with Windows Media Player, are editable with Windows Live Movie Maker, and are Device Stage compatible.

This makes the files even more convenient for use on computers.

Easily Follow Moving Objects with Object Chaser Technology
The Sanyo CS1 is capable of “object chasing”; a feature which allows you to maintain proper lighting and focus on objects in motion.

This is a great way to capture video of family members and pets on the move!
Easy Playback of Recorded Video Directly on a TV

Sanyo CS1 HD video camera features a mini-HDMI output which makes connecting it to a Digital TV or DVD Recorder a breeze.

The Sanyo CS1 HD digital video camera can also easily be connected to a computer to back-up copies of recorded content via the handy USB 2.0 connection.

Still images and video clips are played back continuously and in chronological order.

When connected to a PC, simple drag-and-drop operation makes it easy to save recorded video clips and still images onto a computer’s hard disk for emailing, editing or archiving.

Includes a High-Capacity Sanyo Brand Lithium-ion Battery

The DB-L80 is a high capacity battery designed to work with the Dual Camera CS1 HD video camera and delivers approximately 60 minutes of video record time.

High-energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in the
Sanyo CS1 HD digital video camera. Designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time.

SDXC Memory Compatibility (over 64GB SD cards)

While the Sanyo CS1 HD video camera works with standard SD memory, and more high capacity SDHC memory cards, it is also fully compatible with the next generation SDXC memory cards.

Sanyo CS1 HD camcorder can record to more than 64GB of content to SDXC memory cards. This dramatically improves your ability to record and transfer hours and hours of Full HD 1080 videos to a computer.

You can also play
Sanyo CS1 HD digital video camera Full HD 1080 videos stored on SDXC cards on your high definition TV.
Highly Advanced MPEG4 AVC/H.264 Video Compression
This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or emailing them to friends and family, even easier.

In fact, the file size can be up to 25 percent smaller than that of typical MPEG-4 cameras.

To accomplish the complexity of encoding AVC/H.264 in real-time on the SANYO CS1 HD digital video camera
, a dedicated H.264 video compression IC was incorporated into the camera that was designed specifically for portable consumer devices.

This achieves high video quality while simultaneously reducing the system power consumption.

Capture still images while you’re shooting video

Sanyo CS1 HD video camera enables simultaneous shooting of video clips and still images with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a movie clip.

You will never need to miss another precious photo opportunity. (Depending on the mode used to take still images, simultaneous video clip shooting may be interrupted.

While shooting video clips, using the digital image stabilizer may change the angle of view for still images.)
