The BenQ G1 features a 14-megapixel Panasonic 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor
Measuring 114 x 62.5 x 25.5 mm (4.5 x 2.5 x 1-inch) and coming in black or white, the BenQ G1 will be available in July for €239 (around US$291)
The BenQ G1 is being billed as "the world’s slimmest F1.8 swivel-screen digital camera"
A thumb wheel on the rear of the BenQ G1 allows for dialing through commonly used features and controlling manual settings
On the rear of the BenQ G1 there's a 3-inch 920k pixel swivel-screen that allows for multiple-angle shooting and has a wide color gamut for more saturated colors and realistic images
The BenQ lens of the G1 is constructed from seven lenses in six groups and features an aspherical lens element to improve focus
The BenQ G1 has burst mode which shoots six frames per second and a lens shift-type image stabilizer
BenQ might not be the first manufacturer you think of when it comes to digital cameras ... or even the second, third, fourth or fifth. But the new G1 is an intriguing proposition, featuring as it does a fast F1.8 lens, a swivel-screen, and thumb wheel for manual settings, while still coming in at a modest price of €239 (that's around US$291).
