Florida-based camera manufacturer announces update to the Eye-Q Duo...

Concord Camera Corp. had several new digital camera models on show at PMA 2002. Of these, some were variants with or without an LCD display - such as the 1.3 megapixel Eye-Q Duo 1300 and Eye-Q Duo LCD. An update to the existing VGA-resolution Eye-Q Duo model, the new Duos are similar in most other respects. Both feature image resolutions of 1280 x 960 pixels, glass fixed-focus, fixed-focal length lenses, 8MB of built-in memory, MultiMediaCard slots for memory expansion, web-camera and video clip functions, and snap-on interchangeable face plates. Fuller specifications, along with images of both cameras, follow.

Apologies for the poor image quality - Concord's booth didn't have great lighting and Mike was in a rush to get to an appointment, so didn't have time to check how the images came out until after the show ended...
