Manufacturer's Description
The new Digimax L85 is the world's first digital still camera to feature High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) - a revolutionary new feature allowing users to view their photos on a high definition television with outstanding quality. This eight-mega-pixel model also includes a top-class Schneider Kreuznach lens with 5x optical zoom and a high resolution 2.5-inch LCD display, which provides the photographer with a greater zoom options and a vivid display.Three kinds of manual exposure adjustments give ambitious photographers complete creative freedom. Aperture priority allows more control of depth of field; shutter priority allows better capture of fast motion; and manual adjustment that allows users to set the shutter and aperture themselves meaning that even the most demanding photographers will be satisfied with the L85's versatility.
Continuous shooting mode including Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) allows users to shoot a series of pictures with slightly different exposures to ensure perfect lighting. Additionally, Auto Focus Bracketing takes several shots which focus on different elements of the frame to ensure that the perfect image is captured.
The L85 provides MPEG-4 video compression, which will give cameras much longer recording time compared to standard video formats. It has the advanced capabilities to capture movie clips in VGA (640 x 480) at 30fps and has several advanced movie shooting functions, including a movie stabiliser, continuous video recording, improved in-camera video editing and the ability to use the 3x optical zoom while recording.
11 scene modes including Night Scene, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Close-up, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach & Snow and Text Recognition, mean that even the inexperienced photographer will get the perfect shot in every situation.
Various user-friendly functions such as My Set shot mode, allows the user to save customised shooting settings a great feature for the frequent, enthusiast photographer.
Users will never miss their shot, because the L85 can take pictures as soon as it's switched on, and its faster image-writing speed means that you can keep catching the action for longer.
Improved Graphic User Interface (GUI) ensures faster and smoother menu navigation - menu settings can be accessed quickly and with ease, by using the camera's Move and Set functions.

i have one of these, paid about £10 more, great camera and looks real good

Are you sure this comes with the cradle for HDMI ? When i looked at this camera on Amazon the cradle look to be separate and costs more than the camera ..........

Voted hot. Great for the price.

Welcome to HUKD

It says so on the Play website (under their description)

L85, The World's first HDMI camera. HDMI Cradle included.



Thanks for those reviews Raspberry

Sorry - it just sounded too good to be true !!
thanks for the welcome -

Good spot. Thanks

I had one of these sold it on ebay the other day, mine came with docking station.

it has the one and only thing a digital camera needs, a rechargable battery. simple and therefore a superb camera when considering the other specs also.

heat and rep added

Not so sure about this. I am looking for a nice compact digital camera, that takes pictures quickly. This one appears to be 2 and a half years old..... is that hot?

Recharging Time Approx: 5 sec.

Now that is some seriously hot!!!!!!!!!!

I bought one of these for me and me dad last time it was posted. I looked absolutely everywhere to find a case, everywhere wanted around £15 for the official case. Anyways, I did find a better alternative, bit dear on postage, but as I was buying 2, not so bad. Anyways, just incase it's any use to anyone..

Top camera, used it on our holl s Egypt last summer.

Great all rounder.............

This first appeared on amazon in 2001 ?!
Thats pretty old in a fast moving industry.
Is the description correct as well which says supports up to 1GB?
If so, thats poor these days. Might store a few pics, but not much movie space as well.

It used to say

L85, The World's first HDMI camera. HDMI Cradle included.

Amazon are wrong ... it came out Feb 2006 ... still old though!

is it good for someone just starting out who wants to do a bit more than just point and click?

Just be aware, mine arrived today with NO HDMI cradle. The description on the website now has no mention of the inclusion of the HDMI cradle. I called Play.com, who were very helpful and refunded £10 of the total cost to me.

The HDMI cradle is available on offer at Jessops for £4:86 inc delivery.

Yep I received it the other day, ordered the cradle through jessops! good camera!!
