Sanyo's similar VPC-S7 and VPC-E7 compact cameras

Evan Blass

Without much fanfare, Sanyo has added two compact 7.1 megapixel cameras to its lineup, and other than a few minor differences, the SDHC-compatible VPC-S7 (pictured right) and VPC-E7 (pictured left) are almost exactly the same. Both models feature an oh-so-standard 3x optical zoom and 2.5-inch LCD display, along with VGA-quality video with mono sound, maximum ISO settings of 800, and the usual suite of preset scene modes and white balance settings. As far as we can tell, only a few grams of weight and the E7's inclusion of red-eye correction differentiate the two models, plus the fact that the E ships with a rechargeable battery while the S only comes with a pair of AAs. Overall, it seems like Sanyo isn't terribly excited about these two point-and-shooters, judging from the lack of a press release or even the slightest hint as to when or where they'll be available, or for how much.
