Logitech Pocket Digital Camera Offers Ultimate Portability
Fremont, CA - April 17, 2002 - Logitech (NASDAQ:LOGI) (Switzerland:LOGN, LOGZ) today introduced an innovative credit card size digital camera, Logitech® Pocket Digital. With a unique, thin design and sturdy brushed aluminum surface, Logitech Pocket Digital offers a sleek way to capture and share digital pictures. The product will be available May 2002 in leading retail outlets and online for a list price of $129.95.
"Logitech Pocket Digital is for people who want to capture spontaneous moments, but don't want to carry a bulky camera. Because the product is only the size of a credit card, you can take it along anywhere you go," said Bruce Friedricks, director of product marketing for Logitech's Video Business Unit. "What's more, it looks great."
Although it measures a scant ½ inch thick, Logitech Pocket Digital can hold up to 52 images at up to 1.3 Megapixel resolution. The innovative Autobrite image processing feature ensures that the camera can effectively capture images containing a mix of bright and dim areas. It has a built-in lithium polymer battery that automatically recharges through the USB cable each time the camera connects to the PC during picture download, offering users less hassle and less clutter during battery recharge. Pocket Digital also features a protective sliding lens and viewfinder cover.
This camera will ship with Logitech's Pocket Digital 5.0 software, which includes:
- MGI® Photosuite® 4 SE, offering image editing and easy emailing of pictures;
- Autobrite image processing technology for wide dynamic range;
- and single click download for easy and instant image transfer.
