Even after all the name changing, CEO shenanigans, and apparent scrapping of their digital camera division, BenQ still has found the time, money, and effort to release a few nice looking new cameras. The C740i (7 megapixel) and the E820 (8 megapixel) share a number of the same features, including: 3x optical zoom, Pentax lenses, a 2.5-inch LTPS screen, SD card support, continuous movie mode, face tracking, and red eye reduction. Where the cameras part ways, however, is in the details. The C740i features PASM, which gives you all sorts of control over shutter and aperture settings, and has a high ISO of up to 1600. The C820, on the other hand, can shoot in 16:9 or 3:2 modes, has an ISO of up to 1200, and uses PictBridge for direct printing. No word yet on pricing or availability.
