ULTRA-COMPACT SANYO VPC-C5 DIGITAL MEDIA CAMERA NOW AVAILABLE IN THE U.S.A.
Stylish Five-Megapixel Digital Still and MPEG-4 Video Camera Easily Fits Pocket or Purse, for Spontaneous Shooting Anytime, Anywhere
CHATSWORTH, CA, June 29, 2005 – It’s easy to shoot high-quality photos and video anytime inspiration strikes with the ultra-compact new VPC-C5 Digital Media Camera from SANYO, now available in the U.S.A.
The SANYO "C5" is a stylishly thin, pocket-sized 5-megapixel digital camera and full-motion MPEG-4 video camera offering built-in digital image stabilization and a 2-inch trans-reflective LCD screen. Users can also select real-time interpolation up to 10 megapixels which allows photos to be enlarged to "bigger than life" proportions without sacrificing image fidelity.
Never again will precious photo opportunities be missed, because the versatile SANYO C5 can take digital still images while simultaneously shooting video.
Available in Silver, Bronze or White (only Silver in USA)
The C5 employs SANYO’s proprietary digital optimization technology to remove color moirés and reduce aliasing and noise caused by dots. This technology improves the high-frequency characteristics of the image and enhances diagonal resolution for higher-quality images.
Available nationwide at The Sharper Image, Apple Stores and Amazon.com, the SANYO C5 has a suggested retail price of .99. Actual retail prices may vary.
"The C5 is SANYO’s next-generation digital media camera with a unique thin and elegant design that really turns heads," said Tom Van Voy, Vice President of SANYO Fisher Company’s Audio Video Division. "But beneath its chic exterior is a highly advanced, simple to use camera that’s always within reach to capture life’s spontaneous moments in high-resolution, 5-megapixel still images and high-quality, full-motion MPEG-4 video."
Still images and video files recorded by the C5 can be quickly uploaded via USB 2.0 to a PC or Mac for viewing, editing and sharing via e-mail. Images and video can also be played back directly to the TV, or transferred to a VCR or DVD player.
