Versatile features and very easy to use – these are the key attributes of the three new digital cameras from SANYO. With their 14-megapixel resolution the E1500TP, T1495 and S1414 deliver not only brilliant pictures. The 5x (T1495) or 4x (E1500TP, S1414) optical zoom also accurately captures details. Photographers with little experience benefit from the many shooting modes, which place every subject in the right light. The E1500TP's 3-inch touch panel also makes it easy to use the camera directly via the LCD screen. The three new cameras from SANYO record moving images with a video resolution of 720p. Thanks to their compact dimensions, the cameras are always at hand, ready to capture the best moments.

Simply creative
The new digital cameras from SANYO make every subject stand out. For instance, in the “Intelligent Scene” mode, they automatically recognise the ambient conditions and select the right resolution parameters. In addition, they will win you over with their very easy operation and various subject programmes. In addition to classic scene modes such as Sport and Night, the E1500TP and the S1414 also have creative settings like the Fisheye mode, which produces the typical semicircular fisheye effect, or the Lomo function, which lends pictures that certain extra something, with supersaturated colours and darkened edges.

The best part: Thumbnail images (with the E1500TP) or short explanatory text (with the T1495) clearly indicate at a glance which mode should be selected. That way, even less-experienced photo fans can find the right setting quickly and easily. Moreover, beginners benefit from additional functions, such as smile and face detection, red-eye correction or the digital image stabiliser.

Nice design
Sporting a classic aluminium finish, the E1500TP is an elegant companion for every occasion. The 3-inch touch panel also makes it easy to operate the camera via the LCD screen. The T1495 presents itself in a classic black design and smoothly captures also big motives and landscapes with its 26 mm wide-angle. The S1414 stands for ergonomic design and, thanks to its curved body, sits perfectly in the user's hand even when shooting in fast-moving situations. Thanks to their compact size and low weight, all three modules fit into the smallest of handbags, which means it's easy to take them along anywhere.

A long photoshoot? – No problem!
All three models save their data on an SD or SDHC card. The high-capacity lithium-ion batteries inside the E1500TP and T1495 supply enough power to take as many as 160 or 180 pictures, respectively. Powered by alkaline batteries, the S1414 can be tanked up at any kiosk, meaning that it is quickly back in action and ready for the next photo session. All cameras can be easily connected to a computer via a USB cable for the purpose of transferring data.

Pricing, availability and warranty
The manufacturer's recommended retail price (incl. VAT.) is €129.00 for the E1500TP, €99.00 for the T1495 and €79.00 for the S1414. The digital cameras will be available starting in November in the following colours:
