BenQ's new consumer cams, the C540, C740 and C1000


As Photokina looms ever nearer, camera manufacturers continue their stream of announcements, and BenQ seems to think today's their lucky day. They've got three new ones to show, and there seem to be plenty of megapixels and piddling feature sets between them. Headlining the trio is the C1000 (pictured), which packs a 10 megapixel CCD, 3x zoom and 2.4-inch LCD. There's also 24MB of built-in memory, an 8 second shutter night scene mode, and quick 4 continuous shot mode -- exciting, we know. Next up there's the C540 and C740, which bump the LCD size to a whole 2.5-inches, and manage 5 and 7 megapixels respectively. Both of the cams feature a "Shake-Free" mode, along with 1000 ISO sensitivity for extra nighttime fun. Yeah, not a whole lotta excitement to be had here, but at least these three cams should be fairly cheap when they drop in September. Keep reading for pics of the C540 and C740.
