BenQ has launched two new digital cameras in the Middle East – the C50 and S30 –bringing what it claims is increased functionality and a wide range of features for aspiring photographers in the region. “Both new models combine state-of-the-art functionality with attractive design, and we think that, supported by an initial marketing push aimed at Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and Egypt, they will be among the top-selling cameras of 2004,” said Robert Dung, managing director, BenQ Middle East. “Digital technology is rapidly replacing traditional film and video cameras in many homes in the Middle East, as people come to recognise how easy it is to swap files and share their memories with family overseas,” added Dung. BenQ’s S30 is designed as an all-in-one personal digital entertainment center and can take photographs, play music, and record voice memos. The S30 combines a digital camera, MP3 Player, and an FM radio digital camcorder, supported by a 180 degree flip-out LCD screen. The new C50 digital camera is a compact camera that provides 5 megapixel resolution and a 3x optical zoom. It is designed to be as portable and user-friendly as possible. It also offers SD card photo storage, enabling users to share their memories with friends and family. Both models also support continuous video recording. “Early response from our distributors in the Middle East suggests that the DC S30 and C50 digital cameras will be highly popular with consumers in the region. We anticipate strong sales in the coming months,” concluded Dung.
