Braun Digital Cameras
Braun is known for its kitchen and shaving products, not entertainment products -- but a recent announcement by the German photography branch of the company will see the company more aggressively pursue digital cameras. Rather than compete directly against the high-end models of established companies, Braun has opted to target newcomers. The lead models are the 6.2-megapixel D600 and D800 cameras. Both have 32MB of internal memory and feature a unique interpolation feature that claims to increase the effective resolution of an image to 8 megapixels without losing image quality. They are primarily separated by LCD size: the higher-end D800 has a 2.4-inch LCD while the D600 uses a smaller 2-inch screen.
Also part of the launch were three ultra-compact, budget cameras with 16MB of flash memory: the 3.1-megapixel D312 without optical zoom, 4-megapixel D410 with 3X optical zoom, and the 5.3-megapixel D504. Pricing and launch details are unavailable. Click through for photos courtesy of Let's Go Digital.
