Rollei has announced its latest high roller in the shape of the 5.2 megapixel Rollei Prego dp5200, which boasts a 2.5-inch LCD screen with high resolution movie mode. The metal-bodied compact is just 24mm thin and is said to fit in the 'middle class' of digital cameras. It also has a 3x optical zoom and a 32 - 96mm focal range. It is available now priced €329 (approx $424).
Versatile new compact Rollei Prego dp5200 digital camera with 5.2 megapixels offers large and easy-to-read 2.5-inch TFT color display
The powerful new Rollei dp5200 compact camera nicely fits into the "middle class" of digital cameras: It is an attractive combination of stylish, practical design and extremely high operator comfort as well as sophisticated shooting functions. Its extra-flat, stylish metal body houses a 3x zoom lens supported by a 4x digital zoom. Numerous additional functions include the possiblity of video and voice recording. The camera will be available from mid November 2004 for €329 (incl. VAT approx $424).
Whoever is looking for a camera that is particularly easy to use will enjoy picture-taking with the Prego dp5200. With dimensions of 88.5 mm x 54.5 mm x 24 mm and a weight of only 130 g, it is remarkably handy and light in weight. What's more, its generously dimensioned 2.5-inch TFT color display gives a perfect view of subjects and settings.
The technical specifications packed into the compact metal body leave nothing to be desired: The Prego dp5200 comes with a 5.2-megapixel CCD that easily copes with the requirements made of even large-format prints. Its 3x HFT f/2.8-4.8 zoom lens covers focal lengths from
5.4-16.2 mm, equivalent to 32-96 mm in 35mm photography. Automatic focusing is possible from 0.5 m to infinity, macrofocusing from 6 cm to 50 cm. Autofocusing is performed through the lens (TTL). In addition, the Prego dp5200 permits both average and spot metering. Available shutter speeds are from 1/2 s to 1/1000 s.
Flash, white balance and exposure compensation can be controlled either automatically or manually. Manual exposure compensation is possible in 1/3 increments over +/- 2.0 EV. White-balance presets include daylight, cloudy, tungsten and fluorescent. Flash also offers various modes, including night portraits and red-eye reduction.
Depending on the intended use of the photos and the capacity of the storage medium used, the photographer may choose between Fine, Standard and Economy image quality. In conjunction with a 512MB SD memory card, the Economy setting will give a very large number of images.
A built-in microphone and loudspeaker together with suitable technology allow the Prego dp5200 to be used not only as a versatile still camera, but also as a mini video camera or even dictaction machine. Thus, brief voice recordings of up to 30 seconds are just as easy as the recording of video clips complete with sound. The latter my be recorded with either 640 x 480 pixels or 320 x 240 pixels in MPEG1 (AVI) format. A built-in self-timer with a 2 or 10-second delay makes natural group pictures child's play.
