In a bid to simplify the tricky world of photography for aspiring regional photographers, Sanyo has unveiled the Xacti E6 – a palm-sized digital camera that the firm claims is equipped with the world’s first ‘Touch Sensor Shutter’. This function allows the camera’s shutter button to sense the lightest touch, immediately and initiate auto-focus and capture a photo. According to Sanyo, this is a helpful feature for novices and point-and-shoot photographers who may have difficulty mastering other camera's two-step shutters. The firm’s latest six-megapixel camera features a larger than average three-inch colour LCD, which is outfitted with a low-temperature polysilicon liquid crystal design that Sanyo claims improves colour reproduction. The E6 also features 16MB of internal memory and supports SD and MMC cards. For direct printing, Pictbridge support is also included. In keeping with Sanyo’s aim of helping novices take great pictures, the E6 boasts a ‘best shot’ mode, whereby the camera takes four consecutive shots at different settings and lets the user choose the best shot. Users also have the ability to record and playback video in QuickTime format in full-motion at 30 frames per second (fps) at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. In addition, a ‘Help/Guidance’ mode is included to take the guesswork out of taking good shots. The Xacti E6 is currently available across the region for approximately $381.
