The DC X600, DC C800 and DC C500 are three new additions to BenQ’s digital compact line-up. Billed as the ‘world’s smallest 6MP camera’ the DC X600 is 19mm deep and has a 3x optical Pentax lens incorporating Super-Multi Coating (SMC.) Pictures can be viewed on the 2.5in LTPS LCD screen and the X600 can capture VGA movies at a rate of 3fps. Filter effects can be added in-camera, which enables picture resizing, rotating and movie editing. The BenQ DC C800 is an 8MP camera with a 3x optical zoom and 2.4in TLT LCD. It features a 32MB internal memory, sound recording, four-shot Burst Mode and a Printer Mode that enables users to print directly from the camera to a compatible printer. Featuring a fixed-focus lens, the DC C500 has a 5MP CCD, 1.7in LCD and is PictBridge compatible. Peter Chen from BenQ comments: ‘ BenQ once again steps onto the global stage by providing consumers with digital cameras that possess high-quality lens, a large comfortable display and enriched features in a compact, stylish design.’ The BenQ X600 and C800 will hit the shops in November, and the C500 will be available in October.
