Exclusive scoop on upcoming cameras from Kodak, from an anonymous
I saw the [DC-]220 and the [DC-]260 last week at a meeting with Kodak
their imaging headquarters in Atlanta, and they're very impressive.
220 is slated to be $899 and the 260 at $999, with both having sound
annotation and a more-like-a-35mm-SLR form factor. The 220 is silver
and the 260 is an upscale deep charcoal, almost black. The 260 will
slave flash, and is 1.6 megapix, but the 220 won't, and it's the same
resolution as the 200/210 -- 1152 x 864.
One of the coolest things about both is their new scripting feature.
batch files, you can write scripts that reside on the flash cards, and
scripts can perform actions like changing camera settings, taking
shots (at varying settings, like traditional bracketing if you want),
prompting the user on-screen with custom menus. You can place HTML
files on the flash card, and the scripts can link the images into the
files automatically. The HTML files can also be used as watermarks,
that a photo could have your logo, date/time, and any text you want
overlaid (at varying opacities) on top of the photo at the time of
"The Internet is the first thing that humanity
has built that humanity doesn't understand."
