The Pentacon Praktica Luxmedia 10-X3 – X-travagance and X-cellence - digital camera and photography newsX-travagance, x-cellence and x-quisitenesse are the right words to describe the brand new model of the Luxmedia series. With the 10-X3 PRAKTICA is introducing a compact digital camera that even for x-perts offers fantastic opportunities.

Every single pixel of the ten million on the CCD sensor is taking care that even the most filigree detail is stored accurately and brought to life on the 2.5” monitor afterwards.

The absolute highlight however, is the optional adjustment of the shutter delay time in 29 different steps and the aperture in 9 nuances. That way the 10-X3 allows a much higher level of creativity and flexibility. Especially for ambitious hobby photographers is this a new way of taking images.

High resolution video clips are no problem either. Whether you record with 320x240 or 640x480 pixels with a constant rate of 30 frames per second – the world around you starts to move.

But what happens if you want to print out your pictures? There's nothing easier like that. The DCZ 6.3 is operating on the PictBridge standard and allows you to print your images directly to a printer without using a computer. Print-outs are only one fingertip away.

The focal length rages 7,94 – 22,71 mm and with exposure times from 2 to 1/1000 seconds and exposure values set up between +/- 2.0, images can be adapted manually as well. The PRAKTICA DCZ 6.3 uses standard alkaline batteries or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries and distinguishes itself by a low energy consumption. The already built-in 32 MB memory can be extended with additional SD cards.

Each camera comes with a USB cable, a TV cable, a software CD, a pouch, a wrist strap, a manual and a pair of batteries.
