PenCam Mega 1.3


The new PenCam Mega 1.3 is the newest PenCam to reach the Aiptek product lineup.  With the highest resolution to date on any PenCam, the Mega 1.3 takes advantage of two types of built in memory.  In addition to the 8 MB of SDRAM, we now include 16 MB of flash memory, so you'll never lose your digital stills again.  The Mega also comes with a new adjustable macro-focus lens for "super detailed" images.  Pick up the latest from the originators of pocket- sized digital cameras.
