Product Specifications

The MINOX DC 1022 has a terrific specification: 10.1-megapixel resolution, 6x optical zoom and up to 62x digital zoom, 2.8 inch TFT display all in a compact body and light weight. The MINOX DC 1022 is one of the smallest and lightest cameras in the 10-megapixel market today. With its extensive features the camera offers tremendous versatility at a very affordable price. Together with the fast autofocus MINOCTAR lens the CCD image sensor with a resolution of 10.1 million pixels delivers outstanding images, rich in detail that will ensure enlargements or poster prints of excellent quality. Lens optics, image sensor and software are all perfectly coordinated to ensure pin-sharp, brilliant and true color images - even in difficult light conditions. Whether macro, telephoto or portrait shots, the innovative camera optics with a close distance focusing of just 70 millimeters coupled with the 6x optical zoom allow anything from everyday 'snap-shots' to more creative photography to be performed with ease. Aperture and shutter speed can be selected individually and in addition to this, different exposure programs reliably support the user in special situations. For example a portrait, sports, fireworks, animal photography or night-time mode can be selected, otherwise the automatic mode takes over which automatically controls all settings from the sharpness of the image to correct exposure, ensuring a perfect result. Motif selection and subsequent image assessment are extremely easy with the large 2.8 inch TFT color monitor on the rear of the MINOX DC 1022. With its anti-reflection coating it is also easy to read and see from different angles, even in bright sunlight.
