BenQ - formerly Acer Communications & Multimedia Group - was known in the digital imaging world as a digital display and flatbed scanner producer. Recently, they introduced a wide range of digital cameras in an attempt to stay current, releasing new models on a regular basis.
The DC C50 is the current line's flagship, featuring a 5MP class sensor, 3x optical zoom, Li-Ion battery and an extensive range of exposure control settings. Along with very competitive pricing, the DC C50 seems to be a good choice when stacked up against comparable models from Canon, Olympus, Pentax and Sony in the same class. But can actual performance and image quality catch up with the high specifications?
