You'd think a company that's been around since 1915 could've come up with something a bit more exciting, but it looks like this is all Braun Phototechnik has to show for 91 years on the market. Their new lineup uniformly fails to perform, but we'll give you a rundown just in case you were on the market for a shoddy, Asian-manufactured German cam with heritage. Up top we have the D800, which sports a 6.2 megapixel CCD, but interpolates up to 8 megapixels for no good reason. The camera also sports a 2.4-inch LCD, 3x optical zoome, 32MB of internal memory and video recording mode. Next up is the D600, which sports identical specs, but notches the LCD down to 2-inches. A greater oddity is the D504, which shoots 5.3 megapixel pics, but interpolates up to 10 megapixels. It also sports a 2-inch LCD, but a mere 16MB of memory. The D410 only manages a 1.5-inch LCD, 4 megapixel CCD, and 16MB of memory, but at least does away with that interpolation silliness. The D312 really takes the cake, with the most compact design of the bunch, but a mere 3.1 megapixel CCD that interpolates up to ludicrous 12 megapixels. The D310 completes the walk of shame with a 3.1 megapixel CCD, 5 megapixel interpolation, 1.4-inch LCD, zero zoom and 8MB of built-in memory. A few of these might pass for Happy Meal toys, or a decent camera maybe 91 years ago, but we think it's time Braun stepped into the new millennium and got some optical image stabilisation up in here. Keep reading to peep the rest of these dandies.
