If there’s anything tougher than defining the ‘perfect’ camera it would have to be defining the word ‘perfect’. For some folks the perfect camera is small. For others the perfect camera has ‘’lots of pixels’.  And for some it simply boils down to ‘Can I stick it in my pocket, sit on it, and then go diving in sub-freezing water with it… and oh… is it available in red?’

Sanyo’s Xacti-branded pistol-grip Dual Cameras are ideal for capturing the memorable events in your life. Whether it’s your family vacation, friends gathering at the skateboard park, or a child’s birthday party, the Xacti cameras are typically up to the task at hand. The pistol-grip cameras in particular are easy to grasp and small enough to carry in your pocket. Unfortunately if your idea of fun involves being in or close to water, either liquid or frozen, these cameras could easily get damaged. But that changes with the introduction of the Xacti DMX-CA100, available the end of June.

Add to this list the Pentax Optio W90.
