Norcent intros Xias / 25 / 50 Series digicams with face detection

Darren Murph

Just as Norcent slammed CES with a bevy of new displays, the electronics firm is bringing a bit more fresh gear out for the oh-so-crowded PMA. First up is the ultrathin Xias lineup, which looks to satisfy the style conscious shooter who doesn't have much room in those pants pockets for any extra gadgets. The DSC-760 / DCS-860 / DCS-1060 sport seven-, eight-, and ten-megapixel sensors respectively, feature a 3x optical zoom (plus 4x of the useless digital variety), a scratch-resistant 2.5-inch LTPS color monitor, rechargeable Li-ion battery, and SD / MMC card slots. The 25 Series touts the usual brushed metal enclosure, a vanilla 2.5-inch LCD, 16MB (DCC-725) or 32MB (DCC-1025) of built-in storage, and share the other specs with its Xias brethren. Picking up the rear is the 50 Series cams, which up the ante a bit with their three-inch LCDs, face detection / anti-shake technologies, and compatibility with SDHC cards. The myriad of shooters will be available from April to Q3 of this year depending on model, and while you can snag the lowest-end of these siblings for around $129, the high-end units will be upwards of $200.
