Sanyo, long-time expert in making small but powerful dual cameras (video + still), just made its first Flip-type camera. Yes! It not only has Sanyo’s expertise, it also has a 3x optical zoom and dual-mics that look like shoulder pads.
That Sanyo is getting into the cheaper camcorder space is exciting, even if the space is slowly being squeezed out by higher and higher quality smartphone video recording. Even still, it’s going to be a while before you can get this level of quality on a smartphone. [Sanyo]
