Kodak aims at amateurs with DX camera

Kodak has announced the first digital camera based on its Color Science image processing chip, the 4Mp EasyShare DX6490, will be available next month.

The chip improves analysis of lighting conditions and colour balance, according to Kodak.

Aimed at amateur photographers, the DX6490 uses the Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 10X zoom lens, and has a maximum magnification of 30X.

Shooting modes include sport, portrait, night, landscape, macro and automatic.

The interface consists of an electronic viewfinder and 5.6cm LCD screen. Users can review shots via the camera's internal memory capacity of 16MB.

Also included is Kodak EasyShare software version 3 for Windows and Macintosh. The software allows picture transfer, organisation, editing, CD-burning, e-mailing, sharing and printing. Photos are transferred to PC via the camera's USB cable.

Priced at $1099, the Kodak EasyShare DX6490 will be available from early September.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

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