Sanyo dual cameras shoot full HD video, 14MP stills

We’ve seen no shortage of pocket camcorders on the market, but only a select few have the ability to take still photographs too. Giving you that much-needed double functionality are three new Sanyo dual cameras: VPC-GH2, VPC-CG102, and VPC-CG20.

The Sanyo VPC-GH2 takes on a conventional horizontal camcorder form factor, but it is still compact enough for easy travel. You get the ability to shoot your videos in full HD 1080 60i and take 14-megapixel stills.

It has a 4x optical zoom lens that can be bumped up to 12x with the double-range zoom, which combines both a wide-angle and telephoto zoom. The “Face Chaser” and “Target a Color” functions are quite unique too. Look for the VPC-GH2 to launch this March for $229.

Switching to the vertical form factor are the VPC-CG102 and the VPC-CG20. The Sanyo VPC-CG102 is the more expensive of the two at $229, featuring full HD videos, 38mm wide-angle lens, 2.7-inch TFT, stylish black color, and a mini-HDMI port.

The VPC-CG20 is $199 and it gets many of the same features, like the full HD video and 2.7-inch screen, but it only has a 10.7 megapixel CMOS sensor and 5x optical zoom. There is no 12x double-range zoom, but you save thirty bucks. It also launches in March.
