Creative Technology today introduced the Creative DiVi CAM 316, an affordable

The Creative DiVi CAM 316 is equipped with an effective 3.1-Megapixels CMOS
sensor capable of recording video with audio at up to 640 x 480 resolutions in
MPEG-4 format – a storage-efficient format that enables users to record longer
durations using the same memory capacity. With the provided video and audio
cables, users can also playback video or still images on TV to share with their
family and friends.

In addition, the Creative DiVi CAM 316 can capture still images of up to 6.6

The Creative DiVi CAM 316 is constructed in an ultra compact body that measures
only 70 (W) x 37 (D) x 90 (H) mm, and weighs only 136grams (without battery and
SD card). Its unique design allows its 1.6 swivel LCD display to be rotated
270°, which enables shooting candid photos, capturing video at odd angles and
taking self-portraits.

The Creative DiVi CAM 316 is a perfect choice for customers who are looking for
an affordable digital video recorder to record good quality digital video
without having to pay a hefty price for digital Mini DV camcorders. It also fits
first-time electronic gadget buyers who want to have all-in-one functions in a
single device so as to save the cost of buying separate gadgets, said Joseph
Liow, vice president and general manager of Creative Labs Asia.
