Product Specifications

The L55W has been luxuriously designed with aluminum steel finish style over its entire body. The inconspicuous small buttons and lens cover are made of steel as well. The right front of the L55W is contoured upward to allow firm gripping. Although it is equipped with a 4.8x high-performance zoom, it still shows off its super-slim 27 mm thickness design. You can use the USB cable to connect this camera to a PictBridge compatible printer and print out the recorded pictures directly. The PictBridge enabled Digimax L55w allows the user to print 5 mega-pixel photos directly from the camera on a compatible printer, without the need for a PC. In addition, it supports USB 2.0,which can be used to provide various useful functions at a much faster rate than USB 1.1.
