  • Full frame rate video recording;
  • Built-in microphone;
  • SD memory card storage for capturing images and videos;
  • Internal storage for up to 260 JPEG images;

  • Picture in picture support;
  • WIA, TWAIN, and QuickTime framework support; and
  • A "half-page" mode for focusing in on a part of a page without adjusting the document.

The DC260 supports Mac OS X and Windows systems and is available now for $999 ($1,299 list).
