Sanyo has today launched a digital camera that allows you to send photo and video images over a wireless LAN to a PC or projector.

The XACTI VPC-J2 will be launched at the end of this month and features a start up time of only 9 seconds with only 1.6 seconds between two shots. Its Wi-Fi facility is the latest step on the evolutionary path of the digital camera and is already being used in Japanese schools, where pupils are sending images from digital cameras to their classroom projector to share with the rest of their class mates.

Two of the J2’s more intriguing specifications, or ‘joyful features’ as Sanyo has dubbed them, are its cosmetic mode and its talking navigation guide. The latter is designed for digital camera beginners and offers audio instructions, in English, on how to use the camera. Sanyo claims that its cosmetic mode will straighten out the lines on your subject's face after the picture is taken but none of the wiry faced journalists present at the launch seemed convinced.

To complement the launch of the VPC-J2, Sanyo also unveiled its DVP-P1 digital photo printer that allows you to print borderless photos, direct from your digital camera.
