PRAKTICA Digi 3 LM – Small but excellent

A sober appearance in a progressive metal body – that's how the Praktica DIGI 3 LM is designed. Minimalist formed only the lens puts an accent on the design and catches eye-like the images in front of the camera. Harmonically attuned to each other the mode buttons reassemble around the 2.0” LTPS monitor which will leave you breathless because of its slim construction.

Behind the lens takes a 3.2 million pixels CMOS sensor care for best picture results, which can be interpolated up to 4.3 million pixels. Together with a short shutter release time the Praktica DIGI 3 LM is a perfect carry along pocketsize digital camera. Whether if you want to make snapshots or skilful photographs – this camera offers unlimited possibilities.

With resolutions of either 320x240 or 640x480 and 15 or 24 frames per second this multimedia giant creates astonishing video clips which can be played with sound on the PC afterwards. But also as a web camera the Praktica DIGI 3 LM comes quite handy. With programs like Microsoft Netmeeting or Skype distances will shrink and you will be able to confer beyond continents.

With the built Pict-Bridge mode print outs on a directly connected printer are no problem. The focal length is 8.3 mm and the exposure value can be individually adapted ranging from +/- 2.0 in 0.5 steps. The Praktica DIGI 3 LM uses standard alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries and distinguishes itself by a low energy consumption. The already built-in 16 MB memory can be extended with additional SD cards.

Luxmedia 8003 – Eight good reasons

With its Luxmedia 8003 Praktica introduces an eight mega pixels camera for the very first time. Together with the 2.4” TFT monitor this camera offers some new ways how to take your pictures.

A compact design and straight organized menus allow an intuitive usage. The symbiosis of a triple optical lens and an 8.2 mega pixels CCD sensor assures razor-sharp images which come to live on the 2.4” TFT screen
