Rollei is poised to debut two new digital compacts in the shape of the six-million-pixel DP6500 and 5MP DA5324. Both are due in UK shops next month.

Powered by a pair of AA batteries the Rollei DP6500 sports a 3x f/2.8 zoom designed to deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 36-108mm lens. The £179.99 camera also boasts a 2in LCD screen and a 4x digital zoom.

Macro focusing is possible down to 5cm and exposure compensation of ±2EV in 1/3EV steps is available, according to Rollei.

Also accepting AA batteries is the 5MP DA5324, which is out in black and costs £149.99. It sports a 2.4in screen.

Meanwhile, the company has announced a limited-edition black-bodied version of the Rollei Prego DP5200. The 5MP camera ? which is also out in November ? costs £189.99.

All three models accept SD memory card storage.
