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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
