(CWMBRAN, UK - 10th July 2001) Acer CM is launching a highly compact, light, and cost-effective 3 in 1 Digital Camera - the DC300 – that combines the features of a digital camera, video camera and PC camera. At less than 2cm thick and weighing only 75 grams, the DC300 is designed for easy use - and available at a RRP of around £100 (inc. VAT).

"The DC300 is Acer's first foray into the digital camera market, and its price/performance ratio reflects our overall approach to consumers and small business users," said Benny Wang, General Manager of Acer CM UK. "The aim with our other display and imaging products has always been to provide high functionality and low cost innovation."

The Acer DC300 is very compact – just 88.4 mm x 57.4 mm and an ultra-thin 18.4 mm. Despite its size, the various capabilities are impressive. Not only operating as a standard digital camera, the DC300 can be easily connected to a PC via a USB port allowing full digital manipulation of images and, with videoconferencing software, interaction over the web.

It comes complete with a range of software, including Twain, Mr. Photo (electronic album), It’s Me (3D figure animation software), VideoWorks (video image capture application), and Photo Designer, with all the necessary cabling and instruction manuals - ready to plug in and go.

With up to 640 X 480 pixels in still mode, and 176 X 144 pixels in motion mode – the DC300 has an integrated self-timer, flash, and Macro lens, offering focus from 0.6 mm to infinity. It has an on-board memory of 8MB, capable of storing up to 128 pictures, and a refresh rate of up to 30 frames per second in PC mode. The camera's mini-LCD display provide status information, including picture counter, picture remain, battery status, self-timer status, and more.

The DC300 will be available at the end of July. Those interested in purchasing should contact Acer CM at, or on the Acer CM UK sales hotline (01633) 628671.
