Illustration for article titled Minox DC-1022: Compact 10-Megapixel Camera with VFM and Carry Strap

Details of Minox's DC-1022, the successor to its rather fabulous 8122, have been released. The compact 10-megapixel camera lets you choose aperture and shutter speed for yourself, and there are a range of different modes, from sports and animal photography through fireworks and nighttime. There's also a failsafe automatic mode. Image stabilization is software-based so you should have less blurred photos, even when using zoom.

The DC-1022 will set you back $469 on Amazon.com and it ships starting June 1. There's a full list of specs after the jump.

generally anything over 6 megaixels REDUCES the image quality, as the sensors get so small that they don't get enough light - making noise a big problem.

But, since most consumers are caught in the myth that more megapixels = better, we keep gettng higher and higher numbers.

Still, this has a good zoom (god i hate 3x zooms) and it has a 1.7 inch sensor, so it should have better pics than most compacts..
