BenQ has today announced a new 'female-friendly' camera in the shape of the 4 megapixel DC E40, its first touch-screen camera, which allows you to draw on your images and add built-in photo frames. The brushed metal sliding lens camera also offers MPEG4 movie recording at 30fps, dictaphone function and 4x digital zoom. A Dual Recharge Mode means the lithium ion battery can be recharged via an AC adapter or, if you're outdoors, via USB connection to a laptop. So ladies, ditch your digital SLRs and snap up a BenQ DC E40. Oh, and don't forget to be fun and fearless too.
