February 10, 2010

5.1MP compact digital camera's design pays homage to 50's era Contaxes and Voigtlanders.


Designed in fascinating detail and with a sophisticated stylish format the new Digital Classic Camera MINOX DCC 5.1 is a true example of first-class German engineering from the fifties. Devotees of timeless elegance and precision mechanics will find it hard to resist the amazing look and feel of the camera. This small ingenious masterpiece in a scale of 1:3 is no ordinary digital camera and quietly reflects its owner’s confidence in style.

The external look is a tribute to classic, legendary design. Inside the new MINOX DCC boasts all the convenience features of state-of-the-art technology. Featuring a 5.1 megapixel hardware resolution, 2-inch display and a small and sophisticated attachable viewfinder this exquisite camera is a cult object. With a host of accessories it will arouse emotion in every follower of traditional photography and give great pleasure to all of its users. The 5.1 megapixel resolution delivers pin-sharp images rich in detail. In addition to the optical viewfinder the large 2-inch display helps the user to compose the picture and also shows the details of the selected camera settings. Film sequences can also be shot in video mode in AVI format. All data are stored on external SD cards with a capacity of up to 16 GB. Power is supplied by a replaceable Lithium-ion battery.

Optional accessories offer additional stylish features and functional highlights. For instance, a teleconverter and a wide-angle converter open up completely new perspectives and offer even more photographic fun with the small DCC. Even in the close focus range of up to 50 cm the new Classic Camera captures every subject in amazing and brilliant detail.

A lens cap made of chrome-plated brass and designed in the original classic look of the fifties is a further stylish component that also protects the front lens. The sophisticated attachable viewfinder of metal design can also be kept safe in an optional, small leather case. Other accessories include a leather case for the camera, a leather strap, soft carrying strap, wrist strap and the legendary Classic Camera Flash
