Product Overview

Capture life’s special moments as they happen - the new Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti TH1 records HD video and up to 2-megapixel* digital photos with 30X optical zoom. 30x optical zoom and HD video quality make this camera truly special. It has a more traditional horizontal design but this product is far from ordinary. Its compact, lightweight design makes the TH1 extremely portable and easy to use. Videos, still photos and the various settings and menus can be easily accessed with the user’s thumb. The TH1’s MPEG4 / H.264 recording format makes sharing videos and photos via social networking web sites, portable video devices like iPod’s, TV’s and computers, a breeze.

Style Design Made Simple
The Dual Camera Xacti TH1 packs cutting edge technology into a small, stylish, easy to use camera. Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, the Dual Camera TH1 features an easy to navigate menu which make it a great choice for the beginner and the more advanced user. It is the perfect blend of style, performance, and ease of use.

Large, 3-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.

2 Megapixel* Still Image Quality
A 1.1 -megapixel (effective) CMOS image sensor is the heart of the still image capabilities. This sensor allows images to be interpolated to reach 2 megapixel quality.

30x optical zoom
The TH1 delivers HD video and 30x optical zoom. The lens provides a fantastic zooming range from F=43-1290 mm (35mm equivalent).

12 Subject Face Chaser Technology
Recognizes up to 12 faces for videos and still pictures and optimizes focus and aperture settings to ensure all subjects are in focus.

Three-Dimensional Noise Reduction (3D-DNR)
Sanyo’s 3D-DNR technology offers a significant improvement in video clarity by reducing random signal noise. This improvement in bit rate allocation will result in a highly accurate video image.

Sophisticated image stabilizer
Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the TH1 automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your subject 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!

Sequential photo mode shoots up to 13 frames per second
Take pictures like the pros with sequential shooting up to 13 fps. The perfect solution for action photography.

Highly advanced MPEG4 AVC/H.264 video compression
This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or e-mailing 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 TH1, 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.

Easily transfer video and still images to your video capable iPod
Import video and still image files directly into iTunes software and then port them to your video-capable iPod. Share your latest masterpiece with friends and family.

Record over 5 hours of full motion video
Using a 16GB SDHC memory card users can capture up to 5 hours and 43 minutes worth of video in standard definition or approximately 3 hours and 51 minutes in HD video mode.

Capture still images while you’re shooting video
The TH1 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.)

Super-fast start-up
Reduce your chance of missing the perfect shot. The Dual Camera Xacti TH1 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the TH1 eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds! When the TH1 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. Simply open the display and the TH1 automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as 1.7 seconds.

Includes a high-capacity Sanyo brand lithium-ion battery
The DB-L50 is a high capacity battery designed to work with the Sanyo Xacti TH1 camera and delivers approximately 200 minutes of video record time. That’s over three hours and 20 minutes! High-energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in the Sanyo Xacti Dual Camera TH1. The DB-L50 is designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time.

Easy playback of recorded video directly on a TV
The TH1 camera features a HDMI output which makes connecting it to a Digital TV or DVD Recorder a breeze. The TH1 can also easily be connected to a computer to back-up copies of recorded content. 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.
