Panasonic Revives Sanyo's Xacti Camcorders

When Panasonic acquired rival company Sanyo last year, everybody thought it would be the last time we would hear from the latter. Apparently, that is not the case as Panasonic revived Sanyo’s Xacti pistol-grip camcorders with three new models, only this time with its own brand on them.

One of the new Panasonic camcorders, the HX-WA10, was previously released by Sanyo last year and now comes with upgraded specs. Formerly called Xacti DMX-CA100/ VPC-CA100, this waterproof 1080p camcorder now has a 16-megapixel sensor. Meanwhile, the HX-DC15 and the HX-DC1 can shoot 1080p video clips, with the former providing 16GB internal memory and 16-megapixel sensor, while the latter can take 14.4-megapixel photos.

There is no mention whether these new Panasonic pistol-grip camcorders would be available outside Japan.
