Sanyo's Xacti E1 does it underwater

Slipping into a waterproof shell and yelling 'come on in, the water's fine’ Sanyo's Xacti CG65 has emerged reborn as the waterproof E1.Going one better than the water resistant CA6, it's good down to five feet before it starts leaking high pressure sea water with alarming consequence.The SD card-toting cam manages smooth 30fps VGA video, good enough to look gorge on standard-def tellies. Like the hydrophobic CG65 it'll also snap 6MP stills and you can capture photos of any fishy goings on while still filming.But don't be down there too long. More than an hour and it starts getting nervous – as should you. How much air was there in that tank again?
