TV products fall short

Digital products, especially cameras, had the most serious quality problems of all TV shopping products, according to industry and commerce officials' inspections.

Some of those questionable cameras carry famous brand names, such as Japan-based Casio and Sanyo, the Shanghai Industrial and Commercial Administrative Bureau said yesterday.

In 48 batches of products, 47 percent failed the quality test - including three out of five brands of digital cameras, officials said.

Among those were the Casio EX-Z33 digital camera sold by the Oriental CJ Shopping Co Ltd and the Sanyo VPC-S1275EX camera sold by Acorn International. They had unqualified resolution ratio and color rendition.

The bureau said the cameras used low-cost optical lenses, which led to low-quality images. The products also didn't have auto-focus, a common feature in digital cameras.

Casio refused to comment. Sanyo was not available yesterday.

In addition, five brands of cell phones were found to have a hidden hazard of electric shock, the inspection showed.

Officials ordered companies to stop selling the unqualified products.
