New PhotoPC 650 Offers Megapixel Resolution and Plug `n Play USB and Serial Image Transfer for Under $350
Epson America Inc., the creator of high-quality, award-winning digital imaging products, today unveiled the value-packed, high-performance PhotoPC(R) 650 megapixel digital camera. Epson's PhotoPC 650 is an economical choice for home, education or business consumers who are unwilling to compromise image quality, ease of use and performance. The PhotoPC 650's 1152 x 864 pixel resolution enables consumers to print images up to 5" x 7" with stunning results. Supporting USB and serial image transfer on Windows(R) and Macintosh(R) computers, the PhotoPC 650 will be available for an estimated street price of $349. "The PhotoPC 650 sets a new standard in digital photography by providing excellent image quality at an affordable price," said Lisa Dempsey, assistant product manager, digital cameras, Epson. "Epson is dedicated to providing digital imaging solutions for a variety of customers, including those who are just beginning to explore and embrace digital photography."
In addition to a 1.09 megapixel CCD sensor, the Epson PhotoPC 650 features an auto-focus, aspherical glass lens system for capturing sharp, detailed images. The camera's 37mm threads enable consumers to add optional wide angle, telephoto and close-up lenses to suit their picture-taking needs at home, school or work. The built-in 1.8" LCD monitor allows instant preview and playback to ensure a perfect shot each time. For added convenience, a status display LCD provides information regarding number of pictures remaining, battery life and resolution mode. A protective lens cover has also been included to keep dust and dirt off the lens. To ensure sufficient storage capacity, an 8MB USB-enabled CompactFlash(TM) card by Lexar Media(TM) comes standard with the camera for storing 47 fine or 88 standard resolution images.
The PhotoPC 650 also comes bundled with Lexar Media's JumpShot(TM) USB cable to enable USB image transfer to Windows 98, iMac(TM) and PowerMacintosh G3(TM) computers with a USB port. Using the JumpShot cable, transferring pictures from the camera's 8MB USB-enabled CompactFlash card to the computer is amazingly quick and easy -- simply insert the card into the JumpShot cradle, plug the cable into a USB port and then drag and drop the pictures from the card to the desktop. Since this method of image transfer doesn't require the camera to be connected and powered, consumers will benefit from extended battery life.
