The E1403 from SANYO takes pictures in loving detail at resolutions of up to 14 megapixels. The compact camera also features an HD video function to record films in 720p (1280 x 720 pixels 30 fps). Plus the 3x optical zoom brings even distant objects crystal-clear to the 3 inch LCD display. A host of macros with preset parameters for landscapes sports or fireworks ensure that whatever the theme it appears in its true light. Smile and blink recognition are included for perfect portraits. Thats because the E1403 recognises smiling faces itself and takes the snap automatically without you having to press the release. If someone blinks when the shutter closes the photographer is alerted by the blink recognition and can take another shot. The digital image stabiliser cancels out blurs and the high light sensitivity of ISO 6400 means the E1403 can overcome unfavourable lighting conditions.
