BenQ upgrades to the X725
The newest BenQ camera is the DC X725, an upgrade to the existing X720. The camera is identical in virtually all regards, having the same body, 3x zoom lens, and seven-megapixel sensor; one difference is that ISO sensitivity for photos has been raised to a more standard 1600, where previously it was limited to 1200 -- video sensitivity remains capped at 4000. Most important is the rearrangement of memory, which shrinks internally from 18 to 12MB, but which now supports both SD and SDHC cards. The latter permits anywhere between 4 and 32GB of extra storage. No price or release date has been published.
