BenQ are certainly expanding their product expertise, we have already reported to you that they have some new LED monitors in the V2400 and V2200 as well as an E1260 HDR camera’s details. Now BenQ are looking to expand on their S range of digital cameras.
The company are introducing a new S1420 14 mega pixel beast of a digital camera, it has a 5x optical zoom, and a 26mm wide-angle lens. The camera is compact a 3” LCD with HDR that gives you a realistic view of the photo’s you are taking.
The S1420 range of shooting modes that include Color Accent, LOMO and my favorite style, Fisheye. The Fisheye lens will give you a photo with curved edges with the rest of it being distorted. Color Accent is another interesting style of photography, you can set it to keep one single color on a picture and then turn the rest to black and white and LOMO adds a range of effects that you can choose from. You can read more about the effects over at the official BenQ site by clicking here. See here for examples of fisheye and here for color accent photography.
For those of you that may not have heard of Anti-Shake technology, it is something that helps you to take clear pictures every time. It’s an automatic feature that will help if you move slightly when taking the picture. We all know that happens every now and then and how frustrating it can be. Well done to BenQ for taking that annoyance out of the equation.
So far I haven’t seen a price and Engadget.com’s Darren Murphy says he thinks it will be somewhere between cheap and affordable. We are waiting on a confirmed price so if you are looking for a camera now then it may be worth having a look on BenQ’s official site and seeing if they have an alternative for you, click here to view the global site’s products and navigate to the digital camera section.
