BenQ has been quietly releasing cameras with good features for those who are on a strict budget, and the tradition continues with the GH650 and GH210.
The BenQ GH650 is designed as a bridge camera and should be appealing to those who are looking for a high zoom on a budget, while the GH210 should appeal to those looking to stay classy on a budget.

On the inside, it houses a 16 megapixel, Panasonic made CCD sensor. The GH650 is capable of a super close macro range of 1 cm and supports video recording up to 720p at 30 frames per second. It also has a 3-inch LCD on the back with a 460K dot resolution.
The BenQ GH210 (seen below) is has a completely different form-factor when compared to the GH650. The GH210 is a slim point and shoot with a 12.5x optical zoom (24-300mm) and an aperture range of f/3.0-5.9. The imaging aspects are provided courtesy a 16 megapixel Sony made sensor capable of the same 1 cm macro range and 720p recording. Along with that, the camera also comes with built-in shooting modes such as Color Filter mode, Color Accent (selective color) and panorama.
