8.0 Mega pixels digital camera with 3,0" LTPS-TFT color monitor (diagonal: app. 7,5cm), with 22 shooting modes, voice recording and face tracking, smile detection, panorama function and SDHC-Support

It is sometimes really annoying that the most beautiful scenes won't fit into the camera since the resolution ration is limited to 4:3 or 16:9.
This problem has been solved now in a very elegant way. The PRAKTICA luxmedia 8403 offers an automatic panorama mode which creates astonishing images. Only three images at different angles have to be taken and the camera calculates a panoramic view out of it.
But that is not the only highlight the PRAKTICA luxmedia 8403 has up in it's sleeve. For the first time PRAKTICA uses a Vario Domiplan lens in it's digital still cameras.

Lovers of old PRAKTICA cameras might still know the excellent image quality of Domiplan lenses. The PRAKTICA luxmedia 8403 has 3x optical and 5x digital zoom and comes with a metal housing and giant 3.0" TFT monitor.
Last but not least: all settings done with the settings wheel are automatically faded in the monitor for a short time.
