The 6-megapixel SANYO Xacti E6 digital camera features a full 3-inch color LCD
screen - the largest in its class - which provides an approximately 230% larger
viewing area than a 2-inch screen. Such a big screen is ideal for composing and
framing the subject, checking the captured photo and sharing pictures with
others. The bright, exceptionally viewable trans-reflective LCD screen
incorporates a low-temperature polysilicon liquid crystal design known for its
excellent color reproduction.
The lightest finger touch activates the Touch Sensor Shutter Button. Auto Focus
and Auto Exposure are instantaneously confirmed with a luminous touch signal and
beep. Then, a gentle press of the shutter button captures the image. For novices
and the millions of point-and-shoot photographers that have difficulty mastering
a conventional digital camera's two-stage shutter, the new Touch Sensor Shutter
Button makes focusing easy and helps make "flubbed" shots a thing of the past.
The E6 digital camera provides a unique "Best Shot" mode, whereby the camera
takes four consecutive shots at different settings. All four shots are displayed
on the screen. Save all the images or just choose the best one. Because the
camera adjusts settings automatically, there's no need to worry about which mode
With a 6.0-megapixel CCD and unique high-speed processing engine, users have the
ability to record and play back video in QuickTime format in full-motion (30fps)
at full standard TV resolution of 640 x 480. A fully internal 3X optical zoom,
newly developed 9-point area Auto Focus system and popular Scene Select feature
help make it easy for anyone to take beautiful shots with ease. A convenient,
menu-driven user interface featuring a selectable on-screen "Help/Guidance" mode
assists in taking the mystery out of capturing great shots.
The E6 has 16MB of internal memory and accepts both SD and MultiMedia Cards for
additional image and video clip storage. The internal memory can also be used as
a mediator to copy an image from one memory card to another for sharing images
with family and friends. Power is provided by a rechargeable Lithium-ion
battery with enough power to capture up to 170 pictures per charge.
For easy printing of images, the E6 is PictBridge compatible for direct
printing to PictBridge compatible printers.
