Kodak Introduces New PalmPix Digital Camera
Kodak came up with a new model of the PalmPix camera, a digital camera that attaches to a Palm m100 handheld computer. The camera takes digital images and transfers them via a HotSync cable to a computer where those images can be stored and manipulated. The camera takes photos in full color VGA but displays them as grayscale on the m100 LCD screen. It weights 1.6 oz. without batteries, features fixed focus and a 2x digital zoom. It's available beginning the middle of this month for $99.95 on www.amazon.com (which started taking pre-orders last month) and on www.kodak.com/go/shop. The camera will also become available in early 2001 at major computer retailers, Kodak said.
