A new digital camera, the DC3510 from Argus Camera, is now available. The menu-driven, 2.1-megapixel device is, according to the folks at Argus, compatible with “any computer with an available USB port.”

However, you should check with Argus’ technical support before buying it for use with a Mac. The company does offer Mac drivers for some of their digital cameras, but most are Windows only. And there are no specs available at the company Web site on the just-announced DC3510.
The camera includes a 2X digital zoom lens, burst capability of two to five pictures per shot, eight megabytes of internal memory, an SD Card memory expansion slot, a macro setting for one-to-one close-ups, a built-in 1.5-inch LCD monitor, and a built-in flash. It also offers date and time stamping on every picture.
The DC3510 can also be attached to any computer with an available USB port and has video and audio out capabilities, which allow it to be used as a Web cam for video conferencing or chatting on line, according to Bill Pearson, president of Argus Camera. It’s priced at US$179, and expected to sell for as little as $149.
