Sanyo's water resistant Xacti CA6 camera

Sanyo Xacti CA6

Sanyo is gambling that what we really want is six megapixels in a water resistant package that can hold up to all kinds of rambunctious summer fun. Their Xacti CA6 is splash proof, and designed for easy one handed point and click shooting. Sanyo will always be there if you need to hang upside down underneath a waterfall to film the elusive Zambian Crazypants fruit bat. I'll be sitting next to the pool drinking Pina Coladas.

The $400 CA6 shoots 6 megapixel still photos, and does video in four qualities for maximizing storage space. The camera records to standard SD cards, and can fit one hour of high quality 640x480 MPEG video per gigabyte of storage. Bear in mind that carrying backup memory cards could get expensive if you intend to use it solely as a rugged video camera. The CA6 seems to be a suitable video camera for all those non archival videos that we shoot spur of the moment. I'd use it to film a birthday party, but not for making a documentary.
