Able to perform as either a PC-based or portable digital camera, the flexible Intel Pocket PC Camera provides high-quality video clips and pictures--whether it's tethered to the computer or sitting in the palm of your hand. The Pocket PC makes capturing and sharing video and pictures more exciting and convenient than ever. Just push a button to capture snapshots or start recording video clips for use in e-mail postcards, movies, Web sites, and more. For use away from the PC, simply detach it from the tilt-swivel base and USB cord, using the handy wrist strap and carrying case. The software gives you the freedom to make video phone calls over the Internet from your desk. You can even build your own PC movies and edit and enhance your pictures.
Featuring a progressive-scan CCD image sensor, a glass and plastic lens, and 8 MB flash memory, Intel's Pocket PC Camera takes 24-bit/16.8 million-color still images at 640 x 480 resolution. It also takes up to 640 x 480-resolution video clips at up to 30 frames per second in full-motion video. The focus range is from 10 centimeters to infinity. The Pocket PC Camera has an LCD for setting pictures to photo or video, seeing how many pictures are available, and checking battery life.
