BenQ Introduces 10.1 Megapixel Digital Camera

High Resolution, Innovate Technology, Impeccable Image Quality

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, 31 August, 2006 – BenQ today announces the C1000, successor to its C800, featuring a 10.1 megapixel CCD lens, 3x optical zoom, a large 2.4” TFT LCD display for clear and comfortable photo viewing. The C1000 comes with an extensive range of user- friendly modes which includes PASM mode, 8 second shutter speed night scene mode, quick 4 continuous shot mode and printer mode, delivering an impeccable image quality.

The PASM (Program AE/Aperture Priority/Shutter Priority/Manual) mode enables users to manually customize the aperture and shutter speed to one’s own preferences. The Program AE mode automatically adjusts the aperture and shutter speed by detecting the lighting conditions; the Aperture Priority mode automatically sets an appropriate shutter speed according to the user’s choice of the aperture setting; the Shutter Priority mode does vice-versa.

BenQ’s 8 second shutter speed night scene mode function enables users to capture pictures with clearer and sharper details that disappear in general shutter speed. Moreover, the quick 4 continuous shot mode provides benefits of capturing continuous motion images and quick moving objects, allowing any moment or movement to be captured, any time, anywhere.

The BenQ DC C1000 supports VGA movie recording at 30fps with MPEG4 format and supports PictBridge function which provides direct printing via any PictBridge-enabled printer. In addition, the camera is bundled with 24MB built-in memory and is SD card compatible.

The BenQ DC C1000 will be available on the market in September.
