Give your old film camera the boot! It's time to replace your old film camera with an easy-to-use Gateway digital camera, and forget about the hassles of film and developing - now you can take all the pictures you want! The new 5 megapixel DC-M50 digital camera from Gateway produces high-resolution images with enough detail to make prints up to 11"x14". Learn the ropes of going digital with this camera that weighs less than a can of soda! The 3X optical zoom provides sharp detail letting you take in the scene with a wide-angle view, or zoom in on the action. The digital zoom function can increase the maximum magnification of the optical zoom lens up to two times. Or get ready for your own close up and take a self-portrait using the 10-second self-timer. The date and time are recorded as part of the image information, so you'll never have to guess when your shots were taken. Determine image composition while looking into the large 1.8" TFT LCD monitor or viewfinder. The built-in LCD panel allows you to see the image you've taken, which will show you what portion of the scene will be captured by the camera. The 32MB CompactFlash memory card allows you to store your photos. You can then view your shots and delete the ones you don't want, making room for pictures you want to keep as you take them. And when you are ready, the images can be transferred to your PC to share with your family and friends. Want more than still pictures? The DC-M50 also has a movie mode that lets you shoot video clips. This popular feature lets you record short bursts of video footage and sound, which can be great fun with family and friends. Four exposure modes allow extensive control over general photo taking. White Balance and ISO (adjusting sensitivity to light) can be set automatically or manually. The built-in flash offers a fill-flash mode and red-eye reduction, meaning the camera fires the flash a split second before the image is captured so your subject's eyes can adjust to the light. Featuring software that teaches you how to edit your pictures and create cool photo projects without a lot of fuss, you can learn to save slide shows to CD, print multiple pictures on a single page, or put together awesome videos with ease.
