BenQ unveiled two new five megapixel cameras, the E510 and E520. Both cameras feature Pentax's Super-Multi Coating (SMC) system which was developed in 1971 to eliminate surface reflection and flares and to deliver sharper en clearer images. The cameras also incorporates BenQ's Senseye Technology which should enhance color performance while reducing image nose.
The SMC system effectively eliminates surface reflection and flares occurring when light passes through the lens by applying a multi-layer coating system to its lenses enabling its lens to deliver clear, high contrast images. The SMC lens that BenQ has adopted has a transparency of above 99.8%, with superior image-formation performance which produces images with pristine clarity, superb contrast and vivid image formation. In addition, the SMC lens also incorporates an extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens element and two aspherical lens elements for true-to-life image reproduction and overall size reduction. The adoption of Pentax’s SMC lens allows BenQ’s DC image performance to rival other competitors, delivering excellent images and true-to-life photos.
