BenQ Press Release
21x Super Zoom – BenQ GH700 with BSI CMOS Sensor
TAIPEI, TAIWAN, October 31, 2011 – Today, BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations, announces the launch of its first 1080p FullHD bridge-type digital camera – GH700. Possessing a 21x Super Zoom, with BSI CMOS Sensor for superior low-light performance, and numerous features, it is the ultimate choice for photography enthusiasts who want to venture into higher-end models from a point-and-shoot camera.
The designers decided with a luminous golden ring around the lens to symbolize BenQ’s relentless passion for photography excellence. The powerful 21x optical zoom lens satisfies the users by effortlessly capturing sharp, steady shots at a brilliant speed from a great distance.
Combining high quality material with the innovative technology, High Performance Optical Zoom Lens, the GH700 is able to produce exceptionally realistic photos. The aspherical lens enhances the focus providing sharp, high-resolution images; while having high-transmission, low-dispersion material with nano-scale anti-reflection coating – users can get shots with dramatically true-to-life colours.
Most digital cameras’ biggest challenge is when shooting in a low-light environment. Built with the BSI CMOS-enabled Handheld Night Shot Mode, the GH700 delivers clear pictures even when using a high zoom ratio. The camera will take several exposures automatically and combine them into one single photo – vivid clarity, each and every time.
GH700 records your life’s greatest moments at 60 frames per second in 1080p Full HD resolution with zoom, with outstanding surround sound audio to complement the clear video. Furthermore, GH700 has a built-in wind cut function so audio recorded can have minimum unwanted background noise. On GH700, there is also an interdependent recording button that provides a quick access to start recording instantaneously so nothing will be missed; while pressing the shutter button during recording will capture a still shot. Truly an exceptional camera whether the user is an aspiring photographer or videographer.
The GH700 further enhances the users’ shooting experience with the 25mm wide-angle lens; a large 3” 460k LCD screen; OIS function; 1cm super-macro function; HDR III Enhancement technology and the continuous shooting mode.
The BenQ GH700 will debut worldwide in November, 2011. For more information, please visit http://www.BenQ.com
