Sanyo’s Xacti CG6 digital video/still camera, weighing less than six ounces with battery and SD card onboard, is set for its U.S. debut. The camera features a "blur correction with gyro sensor" system, said to effectively correct unintentional camera shake. Low-light performance down to 2 lux lets the CG6 capture special moments even in candlelight alone.

The "blur correction with gyro sensor" system utilizes advanced digital processing technologies. Without sacrificing the camera's lightweight design, the gyro sensor detects the direction and amount of camera shake during photo taking and, based on that data, a digital filter cancels the camera shake portion of the captured image. Because the CG6 also includes a separate digital image stabilizer for video recording, shooting sharp photos and video is virtually automatic.

The CG6 features a 6.0 megapixel CCD and a 5X optical zoom lens. This enables ultra-sensitive movie recording that realizes a minimum subject illumination of 2 lux. In addition to advanced sensitive digital processing technologies, the CG6 offers an automatic frame-rate adjustment capability in "Lamp" mode for low-light video recording. The camera has a large 2.5-inch LCD panel on which the user can compose and frame the subject during shooting and then review the footage. The CG6 is SDHC-compatible, which means that you can record a movie for up to 8 hours on an 8 GB SDHC memory card. Users can also record up to 4 hours of high-quality video on a 4 GB SDHC memory card, up to 2 hours on a standard 2GB SD card, and up to 1 hour on a standard 1 GB SD card.

The Sanyo Xacti CG6 will be available in the U.S. at the end of March at an MSRP of $329.99
