Pretec, the world record keeper of highest capacity flash memory cards of CF card (16GB), USB Flash Drive (16GB), and SD card (8GB), is demonstrating the world’s highest capacity 8GB SD card working with Sanyo Xacti HD1a, the world’s smallest and lightest high-definition digital media camera capable of recording eight (8) hours of DVD-like full-motion, 30 fps video at Standard Definition mode (640X480 pixels), or more than 2.5 hours of digital video at high-definition mode (1280X720 pixels), at Photokina Pretec Booth. Sanyo Xacti HD1a combines the best of digital movies (HD quality) and digital cameras (5.1 mega-pixels CCD with 10X optical zoom and 10X digital zoom) in one.

Storage is completely “tape-less”, and comes with an SD 2.0 slot, which enables the use of High Capacity SD cards beyond 2GB (limitation of SD 1.1), up to 32GB, which is more than 10 hours of high-definition digital video recording. "The small size and high capacity flash memory storage card has enabled Sanyo to have developed the world’s smallest and lightest high-definition digital camcorder,” said John Lamb, Senior Marketing Manager, for SANYO Fisher Company’s Audio Video Division. “Our pioneering work to adopt flash memory card as the choice of storage has become the main stream of compact camcorder design. With 2.5 hours of High-definition digital video recording using Pretec 8GB SDHC, consumers will soon shift from using slower and bulky tape, magnetic and optical disks to the smaller, fast and power-saving flash memory card.”
