Mustek Systems Inc. of Taiwan is exhibiting its [email protected] digital camera at the Computex Taipei 2002 held at the Taipei World Trade Center in Taiwan from June 3.

This camera measures 69mm wide by 47mm high by 11mm thick, which is about the same size as a credit card. It is equipped with a 1.3-million-pixel CMOS device. What’s prominent about this digital camera is that its installed software can process and output 2.1 million pixel images.

Also, the camera can film 120 seconds of motion pictures with 640 x 480-dot resolution, and can be used as a desktop CMOS camera for a video chat. The back of this camera has a black and white liquid crystal display, and the status of the camera, such as the number of pictures taken, is displayed. The cutting-edge technology by Mustek Systems is worth seeing.

The release date and the price have yet to be set, but the company is ready to produce the camera if it can find a distributing agency. The pictures are to be stored in the installed 16MB memory. The camera uses a lithium-ion polymer battery, and a USB port is to be used for charging the battery.
