Spectec SD Camera Available Soon
According to Gavin Maxwell from Pocket Science, Spectec is close to releasing its SD digital camera for Palm's m500 series. It will sell for less than $150. Spectec is a manufacturer but not a retailer, and it is not yet known who will be selling this camera.
This camera fits on top of the handheld and transfers data through the SD slot. The Palm's screen acts as the viewfinder.
Thanks to the fast transfer speed of the SD port, this camera can preview images on the handheld's screen at 160 by 120 pixels, in 16-bit color, refreshing at 8 to 12 frames per second. The images it takes are 640 by 480 JPEGs in 24-bit color and it takes .8 seconds to save an image.
It offers automatic exposure and automatic white balance. It can focus on objects from 2 feet to infinity. The shutter speed is between 1/15 and 1/500.
The exact size and weight of the camera are not yet available. It has an internal, rechargeable, lithium-ion battery.
It will come with PhotoSuite Mobile and an app called Image Address Book.
