Gadget of the Day: Sanyo Xacti CG9

The day-to-day goings-on at Stuff Towers are rarely exciting enough to capture on film, but on the odd occasion when something truly monumental happen

Lucky, then, that Sanyo has decided to release its mini CG9 pistol grip movie shooter here on UK soil. It shoots at 60fps in YouTube- and Facebook-friendly MPEG-4/H.264 movie format – perfect for committing office high-jinks to tape.

While it might not be hi-def it does still manage 5x optical zoom and digital image stabilisation, coupled with a 2.5in screen for framing your impromptu masterpiece.

And how much for such movie-making convenience? Just £200. Such a small price for making your video page the talk of Facebook. You'll be directing your own Hollywood epic in now time.
