| || CD-RW Media: CD Mavica cameras shoot directly to 156 MB CD-R/RW discs, so there's room for hundreds of images and movie clips for instant archiving. |
Optics and Resolution
The 3.2-megapixel resolution creates images up to 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, large enough to print 11-by-17-inch enlargements. Get closer to your subjects with the 3x optical zoom lens (41-123mm equivalency in 35mm photography). The Mavica CD350 also features a 3.2x digital zoom.
Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on high-capacity 156 MB CD-R (recordable) and CD-RW (rewritable) discs, enabling you to instantly archive your shots. Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB connectivity, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.
You can capture far more than still images with the MPEG Movie VX function. Most digital cameras' movie modes are limited to 30- or 60-second clips, but the Mavica CD350 can keep shooting until you've filled the CD-R/RW, approximately 6 minutes at full VGA resolution (640 x 480, 16 frames per second).
Though simple enough for a novice, the Mavica CD350 model includes advanced multipoint autofocus and multipattern exposure systems to capture the shot properly the first time. The camera's new auto fill-flash function can even sense when a subject is in shadow and automatically fire the flash.
Other features include:
- Large 2.5-inch TFT LCD monitor
- Built-in flash with auto, on, off, slow, and red-eye reduction modes
- Scene modes include twilight, twilight portrait, landscape, beach, snow, fireworks, and fast shutter
- Two-shot burst mode and multiburst mode of 16 images sized at 320 x 240 pixels
