Value-priced 8MP camera from BenQ


BenQ is known for producing relatively high-quality products at more than reasonable prices, and the new DC C800 digital camera follows in that tradition. This digicam sports an 8-MP capture resolution (3264×2448 pixels) in a reasonably small (89 x 61 x 33 mm) and lightweight (140g) package. The standard-looking black and silver camera comes with a 3x optical zoom lens so you can get up close and personal with your pictures.

Preview and review your snapshots on the large 2.4-inch TFT LCD (480 x 234 pixels), record short voice messages with the integrated microphone, and listen back with the integrated speaker. You can even shoot MPEG-4 movies, and store it all in the internal 32MB memory. Of course, at 8 megapixels, 32MB is far from being enough and that’s why there is an SD-expansion slot as well. For power, stick in two AA batteries.

The PictBridge-compatible BenQ C800 digital camera can be had for £147, or about $259 American greenbacks.
