The DC 6033 WP opens up new horizons for digital photography with MINOX! Boasting a sturdy body which is watertight to a depth of ten meters, this digital camera stands up to dust, water, sand and salt and has been specially designed for use in a rough environment. The new MINOX is therefore not just an absolute highlight for all extreme sports and outdoor enthusiasts, its performance is also valued in the industry and the building sector. This camera is geared to capture outstanding perspectives, whether canyoning, on the beach, diving or sailing, or in hard everyday working life.

It has a 6 megapixel CCD sensor chip to provide the resolution for pin-sharp image results that are rich in detail. The high quality multicoated MINOCTAR lens which delivers neutral color rendition features a 42 mm fixed focal length (in 35 mm format terms) and permits macro shots from a distance of 60 cm from the subject. A digital zoom facilitates image detail selection, especially for capturing far away objects. With its rubber-armoring the MINOX DC 6033 WP is an outdoor camera that is always good to hold, even in wet conditions. It is also impact-resistant and hard wearing – despite weighing in at just 230 grams and taking up very little luggage space with dimensions of 78 x 120 x 43 mm.

The choice of subject and viewing of the image after the shot is even possible under water with the 2 inch TFT color monitor on the back of the MINOX DC 6033 WP. An integrated electron flash unit automatically brightens up the scene or, alternatively, only if selected to do so by the photographer. In addition to this, there are various exposure programs to help the user in special situations. The photographer can, for example, choose between an underwater, portrait, sports, landscape or night-time mode. Otherwise the automatic mode takes over all necessary adjustments and controls everything from pin-sharp focus to the correct exposure for perfect image results. ISO sensitivity and white balance can also be adjusted automatically or manually.

The extended scope of the DC 6033 WP includes the use as PC-Cam or the recording of video clips. Besides the slot for SD memory cards with a capacity of up to 2 gigabytes, the new MINOX has a 16 megabyte internal flash memory. For independence when traveling commercially available AA batteries or rechargeable batteries are available as power source. For fast and easy transfer of the digital pictures to the PC the camera has a digital USB port and a PictBridge interface for direct printer connection.

The scope of delivery of the MINOX DC 6033 WP includes two AA batteries, a wrist strap, case, USB cable, CD-Rom with software as well as a user manual.
