The Acer DC300 is very compact - just 88.4 mm x 57.4 mm and an ultra-thin 18.4 mm. It slips easily into a pocket, ready for instant use. It is a multifunctional camera - up to 640 X 480 pixels in still mode, and 176 X 144 pixels in motion mode - with integrated self-timer, flash, and Macro lens, offering focus from 0.6 mm to infinity. Its electronic shutter offers speeds between 1/10 ~ 1/15750. It has 8MB on-board memory, offering storage up to 128 pictures, and a refresh rate of up to 30 frames per second in PC mode. The LCD display gives the user all the necessary information needed, including picture counter, picture remain, battery status, self-timer status, and so on. And yet, despite all these features, the DC300 weighs just an incredible 75g (excluding batteries).
