Sanyo Xacti E1 Waterproof Camcorder

Sanyo Xacti E1 camcorder is said to be the first waterproof camcorder in the world. Unfortunately, it has a maximum depth level of a mere 5 feet, and that also for just 30 minutes. The camcorder also does not support High Definition recording, writing H.264 MPEG 4 video onto an SD or SDHC memory card directly. The Xacti E1 waterproof camcorder will be available this June. Read the list of specifications after the jump.
