BenQ, a name I still don’t immediately associate with digital cameras, today announced an update to their C800 digital camera, in the form of the C1000.
Besides that whopping 10.1 megapixel CCD, with double-digit megapixel counts becoming the norm, it features a 3x optical zoom and 2.4 inch TFT-LCD viewing screen.
Featuring PASM (Program AE/Aperture Priority/Shutter Priority/Manual), the camera offers varying levels of automation, from completely automated shooting through to manual control of aperture and shutter settings.
The night-shot mode features an 8-second shutter speed, and there’s a quick 4 continuous shot mode, which I’m presuming allows ‘rapid fire’ photography to be taken. There’s also the obligatory VGA movie mode at 30fps.
It comes with a decent 24Mb internal memory and can be used with expansion SD cards.
Available this month for £189.99.
