PMA Preview - More Imaging to Come at PMA
Vivitar had one foot in both camps. For 35mm fans there was the CV35, an absolutely all-manual basic entry-level machine in a plastic see-thru box. In kit form with film and battery, it goes for an ESP of $9.95. For digitally inclined folks, there was the Vivitar ViviCam 2750 ($229-$249 SRP) offering 640-480 resolution, 2MB Flash Memory, 1.8-inch color LCD screen and a fixed-focus lens with macro provision.
The rest was all electronic. Among the photo manufacturers, Agfa displayed the mega pixel ePhoto CL30 with 2X digital fixed-focus zoom lens, 4MB Compact Flash Card, a single EasyPilot button to control all operations and four AA battery power source for a SRP under $400.
Olympus' new D-340R, extended the company's 300 series with a 2X digital wide-angle/telephoto lens, 8MB SmartMedia card, improved ISO 100/200 speed rating and bursts of up to 10 images at half-second intervals ($499 SRP).
