The SiPix SC-2300 Deluxe digital camera provides 2.1 million pixels for photos with exceptional detail and color. Use the high-resolution pictures taken with the SC-2300 Deluxe to make photo-realistic prints up to 8" x 10" in size. The SC-2300 Deluxe includes a removable, reusable 16MB SmartMedia memory card. With the SmartMedia card you can delete the pictures and use the card over again. Or when the memory card becomes full, just take it out and put another one in.

Featuring a USB interface, you'll get fast downloads, up to 10 times faster than serial interfaces. Use the 2X digital zoom or macro mode to get up close to your subject. With the auto focus lens, taking a picture is as simple as pushing the shutter button.

The continuous shot feature allows you to rapidly capture four continuous pictures in a row. The 1.8-inch color LCD monitor provides accurate framing, image previewing or instant playback. All of these features are packed into a stylish camera that performs as well as it looks.

Included with the SC-2300 Deluxe is ArcSoft PhotoImpression, providing essential tools for editing your images.
