We have not heard of the "Exemode" brand before. Infact it reminds us of MS-DOS command-line commands. But what do we know? digitalcamera.jp informs us that Exemode has announced a new 10mp 1/1.8" CCD point and shoot digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens. Summary of the DC1000 here and detailed specifications here. All links in this post are computer-translated from Japanese to English via Babelfish - as you might expect. The camera even offers a 12mp interpolation option, 30 fps VGA video mode, 35-105mm equivalent zoom lens, 2.5" LCD, and takes 2 AA batteries.
