BenQ E610 and C610 Cameras

BenQ today improved its DC camera line with a pair of new starter models. The 6.1-megapixel E610 (pictured) is intended for beginners serious about photography and uses a higher-quality Pentax lens with 3X optical zoom for better image quality than most cameras in its range; it also has uncommon support for 640x480 video at a full 30 frames per second and has anti-shake correction. A lithium-ion battery and a 2.4-inch LCD are equally rare additions for the price, BenQ says.

Announced simultaneously is the C610, a camera for casual users: using a slightly smaller 6.0-megapixel sensor, the new basic model also trims its price through a 2-inch LCD, AA batteries, and a fixed-focus lens. Video can be recorded at a film-standard 24 frames per second at 320x240, according to the company. Both cameras are shipping today in Europe with prices varying from country to country.
