Mustek MDC 830Z Digital Camera
Combining today's most advanced imaging technologies with its signature ease-of-use, Mustek today introduced the Mustek MDC830Z, an 8.1 Megapixel digital camera boasting an advanced lens system with 3X optical zoom, a 2.5 inch high resolution LCD, and an array of creative manual controls. Priced at only $299.99 (U.S.), the MDC830Z sets a new benchmark for digital camera value in the 9 Megapixel class. "The Mustek 830Z is a fun, full-featured camera that anyone can enjoy, from experienced photographers to first time novices," said Bill Nguyen, Director of Marketing and Sales Development, Mustek USA. "Great photos start with a great camera, and the MDC830Z is the best digital camera Mustek has ever introduced."

Mustek MDC803Z - 2.5 inch LCD - Large and dazzling with 882 x 228 pixel resolution, the Mustek MDC830Z's 2.5-inch LTPS TFT LCD beautifully displays photographs in vibrant color with utmost clarity. The wide viewing angle on the vertical and horizontal axis allows everyone gathered around the screen to see the photos right here, right now without requiring a download to a PC. Another benefit of the huge screen is that text and numbers on the camera's menus are enlarged for improved viewing.
Mustek 830Z camera - Zoom lens - The Mustek MDC 830Z helps consumers achieve professional photographic results thanks to its auto-focus (AF) Super Zoom lens equipped with F2.8-F4.8 brightness and a focal distance of 7.5mm to 22.5mm (comparable to a 36mm to 108mm lens on a 35mm film camera). When used together, its 3x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom achieve 12x zooming power, helping bring far-off subjects well within range.
Mustek MDC-830Z digital camera - 8.1 Megapixel sensor - The heart of the Mustek MDC830Z is its 8.1 Megapixel CCD. It gives photographers the flexibility to blow up their shots to the larger sizes supported by today's color printers, or to crop them into only that section that is important to them. Super-fine mode rewards photographers with breathtaking 3312 x 2485 TIFF or JPEG images that rival the quality of cameras costing hundreds of dollars more. Depending on the setting, photographers can also shoot at 2560 x 1920, 1600 x 1200 or 640 x 480 resolutions. Once captured, the photos are transferred via the lightning-fast USB 2.0 interface into a Windows or Apple Macintosh computer.
Mustek MDC830Z camera - Exposure and Operation - While the Mustek 830Z gives first-time digital photographers the convenience of automatic settings for out-of-the-box use, it also has the manual controls that seasoned shooters crave. These include manual light exposure (1/3EV step, -2 to +2EV), white balance settings for a variety of environments such as cloudy and fluorescent lighting, shutter speeds in a range of 2 seconds to 1/1500 second, digital effects (negative, B&W, polarized), and several flash modes to help perfectly capture memories. There are also environment-specific scene modes to choose from such as landscape, candlelight, sunset and sports, plus a self-timer (2 seconds, 10 seconds) to help put the photographer in the picture.
Mustek 830Z digital camera - Secure Digital and Video - Storage of digital photographs plays a critical role in photographic experience. That's why Mustek incorporated into the Mustek MDC-830Z both internal and external memory, building in 32MB of storage plus support of removable, reusable Secure Digital memory cards up to 1GB. Why stop at photographs? With the Mustek 830Z, the user can also record 640 x 480 resolution, 25 frame-per-second video with audio in ASF format. It even digitally records voice in WAV file format, a great addition for capturing important business meetings or classroom lectures.
Mustek MDC830Z - Price and Availability - Priced at $299.99 (USA), the new Mustek MDC830Z is currently available at select stores and on-line retailers. It comes with a rechargeable Li-Ion battery, USB and AV cables, universal AC/DC power adapter, a camera strap, user manual, plus Photo Express 5.0 and Photo Explorer 8.0 software to edit and manage photography.
