Concord's new 6340z is targeted at the cost-conscious consumer who wants a high quality, high resolution digital camera and a comprehensive feature-set that gives them flexibility, greater ease-of-use, and quality results at an affordable price.

Housed in a stylish metal accented body and equipped with a 6.0 Megapixel CCD sensor and precision 3x optical zoom, the Concord 6340z produces high resolution pictures with sharp details and superb printing quality. The camera's powerful macro mode enables close-up shots as close as 5cm/1.9". Its 1.5-inch TFT color LCD makes framing and sharing photos easier and more fun than ever.
