Minox DM1

Product Specifications

The Minox DM 1 is crammed full of usable features which allow you to digitally record almost any occasion. A 3.2 MP digital still camera, digital video recorder and digital dictaphone comprise the recording capabilities and these are all fitted into a slimline body measuring just 17 mm thick and weighing less than 95 grams, which can easily fit into a shirt pocket or fashion handbag. In addition to the above features, an MP3 music player is included so you can while away long journeys and still stay entertained as it has an integrated speaker and headphones included with it. It has 128 MB of internal memory for storage and external SD cards (up to 1GB) can be used for recording on when this has been used up. The DM-1 will also play movies and photos you may have taken with another camera using an SD card so its oversized 2" TFT screen can be used to show friends what they have missed. It can double as a webcam when attached to a computer via the included USB cable and can also be re-charged from a computer using this cable or from the mains using the supplied adapter. The 3.2 MP CMOS chip can be interpolated up to 6 MP on the stills camera and the 4x digital zoom gives plenty of freedom for image composition. The digital video camera uses new technology to provide up to 12x digital zoom. The lens is housed in a rotating barrel assembly, which gives plenty of opportunity for candid shots and self-portraits but also ensures that the lens surface can be hidden away for protection from dust and scratches when not in use. The digital video function stores the images using the latest MP4 compression so you retain the video quality on a much smaller amount of disk space than previously possible making it easier and quicker to email your videos to friends and family.
