Praktica Luxmedia 6503 - front

An unusual thing here- a camera with a built-in MP3 player. Usually it's the camera built into something else. Because of this extra function, it has a headphone socket at one end.


Not my camera. I took this to show I'd fixed it; the lens was jamming in when switched on. I thought it may be grit in the tubes, and so got a vacuum cleaner - but then thought further: we can just suck the lens tube out with a vacuum. It worked! A little very light cleaning and lubrication around then lens tubes and it stayed working.


This has a 6.1 megapixel CCD sensor, but resolution can be interpolated up to 3264x2448 = 7,990,272 pixels, with a 5.8 - 17.4mm (3x zoom, 35-105mm 35mm equivalent) f2.8-4.9 lens plus 5x digital zoom, focus down to 50cm with a macro mode for down to 10cm. And it's very neat and compact with it (93.5x56x20.5mm). ISO 100, 200 or 400. Shutter 8s (in night mode) up to 1/500s.


32Mb built-in memory + SD card storage, powered by a proprietary Li-ion battery. Was also available in orange.


The photo is a little fuzzy as it's a hand-held 1/5sec exposure.
