BenQ T800 Camera

BenQ on Monday released the T800, an upgrade to one of its most advanced cameras. The new compact is said to be the slimmest 8-megapixel camera with a touchscreen at 14.7mm (0.59 inches) deep, and uses its 3-inch display to control most editing functions as well as features that would be impossible with a traditional directional pad, such as painting or writing over top of an image. Also rare is the inclusion of two special ISO sensitivity modes for different shots. Where native shots can be taken up to ISO 1600, an ISO 2000 boost engages for a special portait mode. An ISO 6400 mode is also available for shooting movies in low light without compromising the native 640x480 MPEG-4 format.

The T800 likewise shares face detection and BenQ's proprietary Z-lighting technique that optionally adjusts the brightness in high-contrast scenes to bring subjects into clear view. With a 3X Pentax lens and support for SDHC cards at 4GB and above, BenQ's camera is set to ship in early October for Asia, Europe, and Latin America and with color options in black, red, silver, and white.
