on Friday released the thincam DS6628, a digital camera based on SMaL Camera Technology’s platform. It’s the successor to Oregon Scientific’s DS6618 camera, featuring new capabilities and functions.
The camera itself measures 3.3 x 2.2 x .2 inches and weighs about 2.3 ounces. It snaps a 1.3 megapixel image and is powered by an internal 48mAH lithium polymer battery that Oregon Scientific claims goes for about 500 shots before needing to be recharged (it recharges when you hook up a USB cable to it).
What’s more, the new thincam DS6628 sports a plug-in strobe flash unit for taking shots indoors or in dimly lit locations; the flash uses its own AAA battery for power, so it doesn’t drain the thincam itself. The thincam features 16MB of built-in memory, and can be further expanded through a built-in SD memory card slot.
The thincam DS6628 retails for US$149.95 and is Mac and PC compatible. It comes bundled with the flash, leather carrying sleeve, hand strap and software.
