The cost of well-featured digital still cameras continues to plummet, witness the planned introduction of the 7 megapixel BenQ E720 in November for a suggested £140.
This buys an aluminium-bodied camera carrying a 3x optical zoom lens with Pentax SMC (Super Multi-Coating) glass and a 2.5in LTPS (Low Temperature Poly Silicon) monitor, and offering claimed high sensitivity up to an equivalent of ISO1200 for shooting fast-moving objects or in low light.
There's also a "shake-free" mode to help overcome camera shake, along with PictBridge direct-to-printer capability and support for shooting at three different aspect ratios - 3:2, 16:9 and 4:3.
