Product Information

product description

A camera is always a matter of personal style. Based on this principle we developed the extremely slim, metal-bodied µ 1040 which fits a 3x optical zoom to let you get close to your subject and take sharp high-definition photos. The extra-large 6.9cm/2.7” HyperCrystal LCD enables you to view your images in exceptional quality on the screen and makes framing easy, even in brilliant sunlight. And the Intelligent Auto Mode combines Advanced Face Detection and Shadow Adjustment Technology with the five most commonly used scenes. The Advanced Face Detection detects up to 16 persons in the scene. As a result, the µ 1040 is the perfect symbiosis of seeing and being seen.

  • Miniature 3x optical zoom (38-114mm*) in a super-slim metal body (16.5mm**) to capture great scenes through to exciting close-ups
  • 10 Megapixels to make poster-size prints
  • The easy way to perfect images – Intelligent Auto Mode detects the five most commonly used scenes and adjusts settings, focus and exposure automatically
  • Advanced Face Detection of up to 16 persons for perfectly focused and exposed faces plus correct exposure of other image areas
  • 6.9cm/2.7" HyperCrystal LCD for excellent preview even in brilliant sunlight
  • Digital Image Stabilisation for less blur also in low light
  • Don’t miss the moment with high-speed 14fps sequence shooting***
  • TruePic III image processor for faster image handling and higher image quality
  • Liven up your memories with movie recording with sound
  • xD-Picture Card and microSD Card compatible

Equivalent to a 35mm camera
