The PDR-3300 makes a striking impression with its highly polished black and slate gray color scheme. Employing a 1/1.8 inch, 3.2 million pixel CCD the camera gives digital photographers greater edge detail in picture file sizes up to 2048 x 1536 pixels. The PDR-3300 is equipped with functions that make it attractive to the more experienced shutterbug. These include a Canon all-glass 35-100mm F2.9 optical zoom with Macro mode, a five-mode flash system; Aperture-priority AE, Shutter-priority AE and Full Manual AE; 1.6 inch (60K pixels) LCD monitor, Manual White Balance and Exposure Compensation (+/- 2.0 at 0.3EV); ISO sensitivity (100/200/400); and enhanced signal processing technology for smooth burst mode shooting.
The camera records JPEG images at three compression modes ‹ Fine, Normal and Basic ‹ and in three resolution settings (2048 x 1536, 1024 x 768, 640 x 480). The camera is compatible with SD media up to 256MB that can store as many as 3,901 images on a single, postage-stamp sized card. It also captures AVI video clips (PAL/NTSC) at QVGA (320 x 240) or Q2VGA (160 x 120) resolution at frame rates up to 15 FPS. As many as 180 seconds of AVI video can be stored on a single 8MB SD® card.
The PDR-3300 is immediately available at leading retailers with an MSRP of $349. It comes bundled with 8MB SD card, USB cable, video cable, hand strap, wireless remote control, and a CD-ROM loaded with award-winning ACD Systems imaging software, USB driver and instruction manual. Toshiba backs the PDR-3300 with a one-year warranty.
