Minolta DiMAGE E323 digital compact announcedThe new DiMAGE E323 is Minolta's latest 3.3 megapixel compact digital camera. Complete with extensive zoom capabilities, combining its 3X optical zoom with its digital zoom provides a 12X zoom range. Ideal for the casual photographer, it produces high-quality images and offers value-added features in a convenient and attractive package.

The DiMAGE E323's precision electro-optical system is centered around a 3.3 megapixel 1/2.7-type interline primary color CCD with 3.2 million effective pixels for high-resolution images. This resolution can produce 10 X 14 inch (B4-size) 150dpi prints, or double-L size photo-quality prints. For those occasions requiring larger prints, the camera automatically resizes the captured data to create a 6-megapixel image. This allows the production of A3-size 150dpi prints or A4-size 300dpi prints.

Equipped with a 3X optical zoom, the DiMAGE E323 has a focal range of 5.6mm to 16.8mm, which is equivalent to a 36 - 108mm zoom on a 35mm camera. It can accommodate wide-angle shots for landscapes, as well as telephoto shots for portraits. The high-resolution from the seven-element, six-group design guarantees the best results from the 3.3 megapixel CCD. Finally, the maximum aperture of f/2.8 - 4.9 allows the camera to be used in less than ideal lighting conditions without the need of the flash.

DiMAGE E323's digital zoom quadruples the optical zoom's performance to give the E323 the equivalent of a 432mm lens on a 35mm camera. The combined optical and digital zooms give this compact digital camera an amazing 12X zoom range. On a smaller scale, the camera's macro mode allows small objects and details to be captured, and the lens can focus down to 11cm for close-up photographs.

The DiMAGE E323 is designed for simple operation, and exposure, focus, white balance, and flash are all controlled automatically for beautiful color pictures. Literally, one must simply point and shoot, and the camera handles the rest. Downloading the images is just as simple by connecting the USB cable, and dragging and dropping the images onto a computer.


Pricing and availability
The E323 will be available from September for 249.99.
