- Designed to IPX8 international standard for waterproof
The Xacti E2 is capable of recording full motion video five feet underwater for up to 30 minutes. Incorporating a water-tight design that can resist the pressure created when submersed at five feet, the Xacti E2 is capable of capturing dramatic photos and video footage underwater to share with less adventurous family members and friends.
- Incorporates the highly advanced AVC/H.264 video compression
This makes posting movies on the Internet or e-mailing them to friends and family easier by reducing the file size. In fact, the file size can be up to 25% smaller than that of typical MPEG-4 cameras. To accomplish the complexity of encoding AVC/H.264 in real-time on the E2, a H.264 video compression IC was incorporated into the camera that was designed specifically for portable consumer devices to achieve high video quality while simultaneously reducing the system power consumption.
- Capture still images while you're already shooting video
The E2 enables simultaneous shooting of both 8-megapixel still images and 640 x 480-pixel video clips 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.
- Sophisticated photo face detection and video face chaser
Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the E2 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.
- Shake control mechanism
Used for still pictures, it cancels both rotational blurring that cannot be corrected by optical systems and blurring caused by moving subjects. The E2 also incorporates a digital image stabilizer for videos, which accurately distinguishes between unintentional trembling and intentional camera work such as panning and tilting - a distinction that some systems have difficulty making - so that shaking is corrected without sacrificing the natural look of your actual camera work.
- Sequential shooting
The E2 is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at 5 frames per second in 2M mode, ensuring that you won't miss that perfect shot.
- Super-fast start-up
The Xacti E2 media camera is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With the tapeless design, the E2 eliminates the need to queue up a tape deck allowing the E2 to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds! When the E2 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts the E2 in standby mode. Simply open the display and the E2 automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as 1.7 seconds.
- Easy playback of recorded video directly on a TV screen
Connect the E2 to a VCR or DVD recorder to back-up copies of recorded content. Still images and video clips on the Xacti E2 are played back continuously and in chronological order. The Xacti E2 offers convenient connection to a PC. With simple drag-and-drop operation, it's easy to save recorded video clips and still images onto a computer's hard disk for emailing, editing or archiving.
- Easy video sharing
Video recording on the E2 employs highly efficient MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression. This keeps high-quality files small, so you can upload videos to websites and blogs or share them via podcasts or online social networks. Conveniently, these video files don't require format conversion before being uploaded to websites. If you know that you are filming for your blog, you can record at a smaller file size that's suitable for website use. You can then upload the file as-is, without needing to resize it.
