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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
