The new top model of the new Praktica digital camera line up is provided with a 1/1.8" CCD sensor that will provide a maximum resolution of 2272x1704 pixels. Lower resolutions can be set to 1600x1200, 1280x960 or 640x480 pixels. The 1.6" TFT monitor on the back of the camera displays the menu, which is used for setting purposes, and allows the user to get a grip on the image before the shot is made.
By means of the 7-20mm zoom lens, equivalent to 34-97mm on a 35mm camera, the image section can be chosen in an average range. The autofocus range is from 70cm to infinity, and in Macro mode between 10 and 70cm. The shutter speed is controlled from ½ - 1/1000e seconds. In case the available light is not sufficient enough, correct exposure is ensured by the built-in flash, that is offering the modes auto, flash off, fill-in flash and red eye reduction. Various shooting modes (portrait, night scene and landscape), white balancing options (4 modes), exposure compensations (-/+ 1.5 EV) and image presentation on a TV screen make this camera a various usable camera.
The images will be stored on a Secure Digital or a MultiMedia card. Two NiMH rechargable batteries power the camera or an optional AC adapter could take it over. The camera is small with the size of 106x63x40mm, will be delivered included USB cable, video cable, software on CD, batteries, carrying strap and case. The recommended price will be Euro 439,-
