Norcent has a new 10 megapixel point and shoot camera debuting at CES this year as part of their new 50 series line up of shooters. The new Norcent DCS-1050 doesn’t have new industry shattering technology but does load some nice features and the ability to easily shoot photos at a resolution of up to 3648 x 2736 for a very reasonable $179.99.
The DCS-1050 has some facial recognition and anti-shake technologies which make taking decent looking photos relatively easy. It also has a nice-sized 3-inch TFT-panel color LCD and 4X digital zoom complimented by a 3x optical zoom. The camera can use MMC or SD cards and will need them since it only holds 16MB of internal, but once you have some space to spare the camera will also allow you to record voice to WAV files and record video to MPEG-4 in multiple choices of resolutions including 640 x 480, 320 x 240, or 160 x 120. Connection are available through either a common USB cable or through AV jacks on the camera.
