Rollei has announced its highest resolution compact camera to date in the shape of the 6.3 megapixel dp6300. The stainless steel-bodied camera also sports a 3x (35-105mm equivalent focal length) F2.8-4.7 optical zoom, a wide range of photographic features, ISO 50-200 sensitivity, shutter speeds from 8 - 1/1500th second, exposure bracketing and a 2.0" TFT screen. The 6.3MP CCD produces image sizes up to 2816x2116 pixels, large enough for prints up to A3 size. The Rollei dp6300 will be available at the end of July priced €449 ($558.60).
6.3 megapixels and a 3x zoom lens for top results with the new Rollei Prego dp6300.
The imposing panorama from your last holiday, poster-size. A candid shot of your girlfriend, A3-size. Whoever would like to blow up his or her digital photos should turn to a high-pixel camera. Like the powerful new Rollei Prego dp6300 with its 6.3 megapixels. In its stylish and rugged stainless-steel body, with a 3x zoom lens and a 4x digital zoom as well as numerous custom modes and manual settings, the Prego dp6300 makes professional-quality photos accessible to amateur photographers. As of end of July 2004, the Prego will be available for €449 ($558.60).
The versatility of the Prego dp6300 is hard to beat: If you wish to send your friends a brief video message or record a particularly memorable scene from your holiday trip, capture a video clip with 320x240 pixels - even with sound because a loudspeaker and microphone are built in. Your video clips or photos can be recorded on SD cards with up to 512 MB and transmitted to a computer or TV set via the USB or video port (NTSC, PAL). And of course, there is an ample choice of recording formats: from JPEG (EXIF 2.2) and TIFF right up to AVI.
Optimum image quality is ensured by a 6.3-megapixel CCD sensor plus a high-quality zoom lens f/2.8-4.7 with focal lengths from 7.2 to 21.6 mm (equivalent to 35-105mm in 35mm photography). In addition to its 3x optical zoom, the Prego dp6300 has a 4.4x digital zoom. Depending on the intended use, pictures can be taken with fine, coarse or standard resolution or in TIFF mode (only with 2816x2116 pixels).
Automatic focusing is possible from 0.8 m to infinity, macrofocusing from 9 to 80 cm. Shutter speed is controlled automatically from 8s to 1/1500 s. An easy-to-read 2.0" TFT color monitor displays the different settings. An optical real-image zoom viewfinder with eyesight correction makes for easy framing.
There is an ample choice of individual settings that can be varied for each photo. Thus you can choose between single frames and continuous shooting (five images) or bracketing (-0.67 EV, 0 EV and +0.67 EV). A dial controls shooting modes such as programmed AE, AV, TV, manual, portrait, sports and night. A built-in flash unit comes in handy when the light is low; it can be set to Auto, Off, Forced or Red-eye reduction. White balance with an auto mode plus presets for manual, daylight, cloudy, tungsten and fluorescent tubes 1 and 2 takes care of precise color balance even in critical lighting conditions. Exposure can be compensated either automatically or manually in one-third increments over +/- 2.0 EV.
