Kyocera Japan has today announced that the Contax N Digital will finally go on sale on Sunday 19th May (we hope). Interestingly there have also been a number of specification changes announced. These are: a reduction in final image size from 6.13 to 6.04 megapixels, addition of colour saturation adjustment, reduction in sensitivity from ISO 50-1600 in the original specification to ISO 25-400 for the final camera, an reduction of battery life expectation from 500 to 300 images and an increase in weight of 10 g to 1 KG (2.2 lb).
