Sanyo's DMX-CG100 and DMX-GH1 camcorders do 1080p up in here
Another day, another little camcorder that can fill up memory cards quick with 1080p on tap. Sanyo's DMX-CG100 and DMX-GH1 can record 30fps progressively at 12Mbps, or 60 at 16Mbps if you don't mind interlacing, through 5x optical zoom lenses with two separate ranges: 40mm at the widest end and 480mm on the telephoto side. Both offer SDXC support for up to 64GB of storage and the only real difference between them is design, with the CG100 (above) offering a vertical style and the GH1 (after the break) going for the more traditional (and apparently less comfortable) horizontal design. Both start shooting in Japan next week, but Sanyo's not saying how much you'll need to pay for admission to this party. Hands-on photos of the CG100 (VPC-CG100 in Europe) from the UK's The Gadget Show Live below.
