The new Rollei X-8 Compact: A multitude of colours with 8 megapixel
Combining colourful design with versatile functions, the Rollei X-8 Compact is above all the ideal camera for newcomers to photography. The slim case measures 90.7 mm x 55.95 mm x 21.8 mm (WxHxD) and weighs only 115 g. The compact camera is available in the trendy colours white, pink and black, making the Rollei X-8 Compact an attractive accessory for every occasion. The 1 / 2.5″ CCD sensor shoots pin sharp 8 megapixel photos and takes videos in full audio and video quality with 640 x 480 pixels, which can be marvelled at thanks to the built-in stereo loudspeaker. No matter whether you are taking photos at sunrise, in candlelight or of sport events on the beach: 23 motif programmes help you find the optimum setting for every situation. The bright 2.7″ colour TFT display offers complete motif control with its 230,000 pixels.
Furthermore, motion can be impressively captured with 3 pictures per second, thanks to the series picture function. To reduce blurred photos, the 'anti-shake function' compensates for any vibrations that occur when taking photographs. For portrait shots, the 'face detection' function focuses on one or more faces extremely quickly and ensures optimum light exposure. And to make sure no smile goes missing, the 'smile detection' feature can be used.
The Rollei X-8 Compact is available in the shops from the beginning of October. The accessories include the image editing software, 'PhotoStudio 9', from Zoner. Stylish camera bags are also available in the appropriate colour to match your Rollei X-8 Compact camera.

Cameras which are simple to use and function superbly – Rollei's history began in a Braunschweig workshop in 1920 under this motto. Rollei established its global reputation as a manufacturer of precision devices with its binocular Rolleiflex, a trend-setting roll film camera. It soon became the standard tool for professional photographers and the dream of all amateurs. In May 2007, RCP-Technik GmbH & Co. KG, a company based in Hamburg, purchased the Rollei brand license rights for the sale of digital consumer cameras and accessories throughout Europe. The camera portfolio includes the three product lines 'Compact', 'Slim' and 'Active'. Excellent service is available for all Rollei consumer cameras: the 24-month all-around care-free package offers the possibility of exchanging the camera for a new device within 8 days, in the event of damage.
