Mustek Leads The Way in Affordable, High-Quality Digital Photography with Introduction of MDC532Z Camera

ORLANDO, FL, February 26, 2006 (Photo Marketing Association Show) – Expanding its MDC family of digital cameras, Mustek today introduced the MDC532Z, a full-featured, compact 5.0-megapixel CCD camera that achieves high-resolution digital photography with richly detailed images and true-to-life color reproduction.

Expected to ship in March with an MSRP of .99 (U.S.), the MDC532Z is priced lower than similar featured cameras sold by competitors to set a new industry benchmark for value, performance and versatility in the five-megapixel class.

Designed for digital photographers at all levels of experience who need great photos at the best value without compromising features, the MDC532Z powerfully delivers with a ultra-bright 2.5 inch LCD (882 x 228), 2560 x 1920 resolution in TIFF and JPEG formats for print enlargements up to 11 x 17 inches, a high-grade all-glass AF lens (F=2.8-4.8, f=5.4mm-16.2mm) with 3X optical and 4X digital zoom (total 12X zoom), 16MB of internal memory plus a slot for SD memory cards up to 512MB, along with 640 x 480 video shooting at 30 frames-per-second with sound.

"Because of its easy interface, the MDC532Z will appeal mostly to entry-level photographers, whether it’s a first digital camera or a step-up from a lower resolution model," said Bill Nguyen, Director of Marketing, Mustek. "However, what is great about the MDC532Z is that it also has a solid array of manual controls that the photographer can later explore as they get more comfortable with digital photography, such as white balance, various flash and resolution settings, exposure modes, and four distinct scene modes."


Stylish and sophisticated in its compact gleaming aluminum housing, the MDC532Z lives up to its good looks. For example, its faster image processor results in greatly reduced delay time between shoots, along with a faster camera boot. Plus, the bright 2.5-inch LCD makes framing, reviewing and sharing pictures a breeze in any lighting condition.

Multifunctionality is the signature of Mustek products. The MDC532Z is no exception. In addition its duties as a digital still camera and camcorder, it digitally records WAV voice files with its built-in microphone/speaker, and functions as a PC Camera for Internet video chat.

The MDC532Z is compatible with Windows® (98/ME/2000/XP) or Macintosh (OS 9.0 and up) operating systems. Photo editing software, USB and AV cables, a carrying bag and strap, manual, AC/DC power adapter and a Li-ion battery come with the camera.

Mustek products are sold at select retailers and on-line sites. For more information, please visit or call 949-790-3800.
