Kodak launches two mega-pixel digital cameras

Kodak Australia has announced two digital cameras, the DC220 and DC260. Both cameras use a Motorola PowerPC 800 processor and are the first portable digital cameras to use the USB connection, according to the company.

The DC260 has an optical 3x zoom; a flash synch for connecting an external flash; burst capture function for taking consecutive images; and "watermarking", for incorporating date, graphics (eg, a company logo) and text in each shot. Kodak claims that the DC260 is the first camera in its class to sport a maximum setting of 1.6 million pixels (1536 x 1024).

The DC220 shoots at a maximum of one million pixels (1152 x 864) per image, with an optical 2x zoom. Both cameras allow recording and playback of audio notes to accoompany photos.

These new Kodak cameras allow changes to the operating systems of the units to add customised scripts. These scripts might pre-configure the camera for certain conditions, or lead a novice user through the picture-taking process.

Both cameras ship with an 8MB picture card for storing images; AC adapter; serial and USB cables; audio/video cables; and Adobe Photodeluxe, Adobe PageMill and Kodak Picture Easy software. The cameras will be available mid July with estimated street pricing of $1999 for the DC220 and $2449 for the DC260.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
