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.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
