Vivitar announces 5mpix, 3x zoom digital camera|
(Saturday, March 8, 2003 - 17:40 EST)
California-based Vivitar Corp., which sells a number of digital cameras made by OEMs such as Taiwanese manufacturer Premier Image Technology Corp., had several new models to talk about at PMA.
More details on these will be available shortly as we catch up on a backlog of work that built up during the show. Perhaps one of the two most interesting announcements, though, was the new ViviCam 3930. Featuring a 5 megapixel imager coupled with a 3x optical zoom lens, it is becoming apparent that as the megapixel race cools down, the OEM manufacturers are beginning to catch up somewhat. This model should ship in June at a suggested price of about $500...
