The ergonomic silver-anodized aluminum body with its low weight makes new MINOX DC 1033 an extremely attractive camera to carry around be it on the wrist, in a pocket or handbag.

The 2.7 “ TFT display covers the entire back of the camera, making it not only a real eye-catcher but very user friendly in assessing images by more than one person if required.

Core elements of the MINOX DC 1033 include the 1/2.3“ CCD image sensor and the autofocus 5x optical zoom multicoated MINOCTAR lens.

An electronic image stabilizer helps the user eliminate practically any lens shake, even in the more sensitive telephoto range.  This of course is of great value with long exposures in poor light conditions or for ever more popular close up and macro shots.

The automatic white balance ensures a natural color rendition. There are several flash functions to choose from and the automatic face and smile detection will help capture the shot at the right moment.  The new DC 1033 can also shoot video clips or record voice messages to accompany the digital images. Speakers and a microphone are built into the camera. All audio and video data can be saved onto SD cards up to 16 Gigabyte in size (SDHC) or in the internal 32-MB memory. A picture bridge port allows the DC 1033 to be directly connected to peripheral equipment so that images can be printed out without having to use a computer.  If files are to be copied onto a computer this is easily and quickly done using the digital USB 2.0 port. The Minox DC 1033 is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery.

The MINOX DC 1033 is supplied with a power pack, USB and video cable, Lithium-Ion battery, strap, ever-ready case, user’s Manual as well as a CD-ROM with software.
