It also offers six megapixel stills, two built-in directional microphones and Digital Natural Motion technology for flicker-free video. It should be priced at 99.90 Euros. The SPC1000 has a built-in directional microphone with noise reduction filter, still images of five megapixels and a 5x digital zoom. It should retail at 49.90 Euros.
