Epson have launched the PhotoPC 2100Z. A digital camera that has been designed to ensure it is easy to use, even by the first time digital camera owner. It includes Epson's renowned technology to produce high quality images for emailing or printing. Features include 5x seamless optical-digital zoom for greater range flexibility. Email mode will automatically optimise the image settings for quick emailing once uploaded to a PC or Mac and a nightscape mode will help to provide clear images in a reduced light situation.
The PhotoPC 2100Z also features Epson's Print image matching technology. A unique development that creates a link between the camera and a Print image matching enabled Epson photo printer, to create the highest quality images possible. The entire process happens automatically, when the shot has been taken it will be digitally 'tagged' with the camera's specific optimum image parameters, including wider colour space, improved sharpeness, superior colour balance, and contrast adjustment for natural skin tones.
Larger pictures up to A3 size are easily produced from the PhotoPC 2100Z, thanks to the 3.1 megapixel output using Epson HyPict Technology. Often when a digital image is enlarged it loses detail, may have blurred edges or background noise. If the user wishes to create an A3 or A4 image Epson HyPict Technology ensures their image is crisp, clear and sharp without blurred or jagged edges.
Included with the PhotoPC 2100Z is a 8Mb Compact Flash Card for storing photos, 4xAA batteries, as well as a range of versatile image management and manipulation software that provides the user with full control over their images.
Yasbir Sihan, Business Manager for Consumer Products comments, 'As people are increasingly using their home PC to communicate to friends and family the digital camera is playing an important role. The PhotoPC 2100Z is ideal for all the family to email images quickly and easily. Images taken from the PhotoPC 2100Z and printed on an Epson photo printer will rival any photo bureau and users need only print the photos they want, all others can be deleted, therefore eliminating waste'.
Sihan concludes, 'The PhotoPC 2100Z is the essential accessory for every home'.Epson PhotoPC 2100Z Features summary
