April 9, 2007 – BenQ last week announced the DC-E605, part of their Elegant and Stylish point-and-shoot product line. The new 6-megapixel camera comes with a "3D-rotating lens" that promises faster focusing.

"You no longer have to focus in advance in order to have crisp and clear images, providing users a more convenient, time-saving camera," states the company website.

The BenQ E605 has an extending 3x optical zoom lens with a focal length equivalent to 35-105mm (35mm format) and a 2.4-inch, 115,000 pixel resolution LCD monitor.

Among the camera’s features is the Panoramic Focus Mode, which promises sharp photos without the lag time. The mode automates the focus process, so the shutter button doesn't have to be pressed down half way to auto focus. The E605 also has a Shake-Free Sports Mode for blur reduction.

The BenQ E605 has Motion JPEG video capability at 640x480 resolution at 30fps. The camera has 32 MB of internal memory and accepts SD memory cards and Li-ion batteries.
