XIAS Rolls Out 12MP DCS-1260, 8MP DCS-860

XIAS DCS-1260 and DCS-860 Digital Cameras

The 12-megapixel DCS-1260, back, photo above, and the 8-megapixel DCS-860, front, are the latest offerings from XIAS, a brand of San Dimas, California-based Norcent Technology, Inc.

The XIAS DCS-1260 offers Face-Tracking, which identifies faces within the frame and automatically adjusts for the optimum focus and exposure. Its Anti-Shake feature compensates for camera movement, which should result in crisp, clean images.

The DCS-1260 sports a large 3-inch scratch-resistant LTPS TFT LCD color display. Its Movie mode captures AVI or MPEG-4 video clips with up to 30-seconds of audio which you can play back in either NTSC or PAL formats.

The XIAS DCS-860 has a 2.5-inch LCD screen, 3x zoom, Face-Tracking and Anti-Shake, and 13 picture-taking modes.

The DCS-860 is available now at $180 while the DCS-1260 will have a retail price of $250 when it comes out in Q2 2008. Both are on display at CES 2008, Central Hall Booth No. 15023.
