BenQ P860 Camera
BenQ today introduced the second model in its Performance series of cameras with the P860. Its compact frame hides an unusually strong 6X optical zoom; this is equal to a 37-222mm lens on a 35mm film camera and great for long-distance shots, BenQ says. Optical stabilization is also onboard for sharpening close-up and nighttime scenes.
The company further promises 640x480 movie recording at a full 30 frames per second, ISO 1000 sensitivity, and SDHC card support for when the 18MB of internal memory and the normal 2GB limit of SD cards runs out. China, Italy, Russia, and Spain will receive the P860 by the end of March with prices to vary. No indication was made as to whether or not other regions will see the camera at a later date.
