Mustek MDC 500 Digital Camera
Continuing to make advanced digital imaging fun and accessible, Mustek USA today announced its new MDC 500, a five Megapixel digital camera that doubles as a video camcorder that records 320 x 240 MPEG movies in full motion with audio. Offering the point-and-shoot convenience of traditional cameras, the Mustek MDC500 is the perfect "digicam" for families making their first move from film to pixels, as well as for more experienced digital photographers looking for an affordable step-up to five Megapixel performance. Equipped with internal memory of 16MB, the Mustek MDC 500 digital camera also takes full advantage of the small form-factor of SD/MMC storage cards with guaranteed storage of up to 1GB.
Mustek MDC 500 Digital Camera
Mustek 500 camera - 5 Megapixel - Delivering detail-rich, true color JPEG images in print sizes up to 20 x 30 inches, the camera packs big features into its slim, stylish body. The fixed-focus lens (F=3.0, f=6.22) with 4X digital zoom, built-in flash system with red-eye reductions, and array of automatic features combine to make it easy to get the right shot even in unfavorable lighting conditions The large 1.7" high-resolution LCD (480 x 240) provides vivid color reproduction when framing or reviewing pictures.
Mustek MDC500 - Resolution and Movie - Versatility is a hallmark of all Mustek products, and the Mustek MDC 500 is no exception. The photographer can select from a choice of resolution settings to meet their needs, from "Fine" mode's 3702 x 2304 (interpolation) for large-scale color printing to Economy mode's 640 x 480 resolution for website size images. Because the camera's data compression system keeps rates low, it is possible for the Mustek MDC500 to record high-quality movies with 320 x 240 resolution at 24 frames per second (fps). Individual movie clips can last as long as 15 minutes. What's more, features such as digital zooming offer the shooter greater freedom and flexibility while making movies.
Mustek MDC-500 digital camera - Scene mode - In addition, the Mustek MDC 500 is equipped with preset "Scene" modes that automatically calculate the compensation needed to provide a clear, crisp image depending on which scene is selected - auto, night mode, sports, portrait, landscape or backlight. As the photographer grows more comfortable with the MDC500 digital camera they'll want to explore the manual exposure (0.5 EV step, -2.0 to +2.0) and white balance modes (auto, daylight, cloudy, tungsten and fluorescent) for more creative results.
Mustek MDC 500 digital camera - Memory and Weight - Equipped with internal memory of 16MB, the Mustek MDC 500 also takes full advantage of the small form-factor of SD/MMC storage cards with guaranteed storage of up to 1GB. Transferring the photos from the camera to a computer (PC/Mac) is accomplished via the super-fast USB 2.0 interface. All required cables are included. A perfect balance of form and function, the sleek, all-aluminum Mustek MDC500 measures .9 inch thick and weighs .18 lbs. Its ergonomic design includes strategically placed controls for convenient photo and movie shooting, plus a sliding lens cover that makes holding the camera more secure while protecting the flash and lens.

Included accessories are a rechargeable Li-Ion battery, Photo Express and Photo Explorer software, camera bag and strap, USB cable, universal AC/DC power adapter and a getting started manual.
