The Prego da6 is Rollei's latest addition to their Prego family of digital cameras. With its wealth of pixels in an equally rugged and compact body of an aluminum-magnesium alloy it will leave even highly discriminating photographers hardly anything to be desired. Apart from its resolution of six million pixels, the Prego da6 comes with a high-performance 3x D-VarioApogon zoom lens and a 5x digital zoom. Like all the Rollei models of this series, the Prego da6 will also record video clips complete with sound. The Prego da6 will be available in silver or black for 349 Euro (incl. VAT) from October 2004. Exacting photographers will find the Prego da6 to deliver almost professional quality. The high resolution of the 6.0-megapixel CCD, the high-performance lens 4-24mm f/2.8-4.8 (equivalent to 39-117mm in 35mm photography) and the wide zoom range underline the photographic competence of the camera. An optical real-image viewfinder and a large 1.8-inch TFT color monitor make for easy framing. The LC display is particularly helpful for close-ups in the Macro focus mode from 15 to 50cm. Precise auto focusing is ensured between 0.5 m and infinity by a reliable auto focus system.

Extensive automatic modes for flash, white balance and exposure guarantee optimum results in candid shooting and all normal situations. Whoever likes to experiment with different shutter speeds or lighting techniques will find ample room for individual fine adjustment: Flash On, Off or Red-eye reduction and white balance Manual, Daylight, Cloudy, Tungsten or Fluorescent come in handy in difficult lighting situations. Interesting results can be obtained with manual exposure compensation in 1/3 increments over +/-2.0 EV. Average, evaluative and spot-metering options cover an extremely wide range of lighting and subject situations. And there are more modes for creative experimentation: Continuous shooting with up to five frames, for example, may be used to create fascinating motion studies. Self-timer delays of 2 s and 10 s leave ample room for shots that are "different". And genuine moving images can be recorded with 20 frames per second and 320 x 240 pixels, even with sound thanks to a built-in loudspeaker and microphone. Stills and video clips are stored either in the 16MB internal memory of the camera or on an SD or MultiMedia card. They can be transferred either to a PC or a TV set via the USB-2.0 interface or the video output (NTSC/PAL).
