BenQ rolls out DC-E605 6 megapixel camera

The trickle of digital cameras out of BenQ looks to be holding steady, with the company following up its P860 and T700 cams released last month with its new DC-E605 model, itself and update to the DC-E600. Like that earlier model, the big selling point here is the cam's "3D-rotating lens," which promises to speed up your zooming while still keeping things in focus. That questionable benefit aside, the cam's other features all look to be decent enough, with a 6 megapixel CCD, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.4-inch LCD on the rear, along with 32MB of built-in memory and an SD slot for expansion. While those specs aren't a heckuva lot different than the earlier E600, this latest cam does look to add a bit more in the way of features, including shake-reduction in sports mode, and an apparently new user interface. BenQ's also managed to keep the cam fairly pocketable, measuring just under an inch thick, 3.6 inches wide, and 2.36 inches tall. While there's no word on price, we wouldn't expect it to be too far off the E600's $300 asking price.
