6/03/2003 09:35:00 AM Eastern

New York - Kodak and SiPix announced several new digital cameras to their respective lineups today.

Kodak added three new cameras to its EasyShare system, all of which feature Kodak's `share' button that allows users to designate images on the camera's LCD screen for printing or e-mailing when connected to a PC.

The 4-megapixel DX6440, available in August for a suggested retail price of $399, incorporates a Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 4x optical zoom lens, and an exclusive high-speed, low-light precision auto-focus system. The camera also features programmable aperture and shutter priorities as well as pre-programmed sport, night, portrait, landscape, close-up and automatic modes. There is also a new automatic fill flash for backlit scenes.

The CX6330 is a 3.1-megapixel camera with a 3x optical/3.3x digital zoom Kodak Retinar aspheric all-glass lens. It features multiple scene modes including sport, night, landscape and close-up. The camera can also capture continuous digital video with audio. It will be available in this month for a suggested retail price of $279.

Finally, Kodak introduced the entry-level CX6200 which will ship in August for a suggested $129. The camera features 2-megapixel resolution with a 3x digital zoom. The 1.6-inch LCD screen can be used to both preview a shot and instantly review the snapped picture.

All three of Kodak's new EasyShare cameras are compatible with the optional EasyShare camera dock 6000, which retails for a suggested $79.95. The USB dock transfers images from the camera to the desktop and charges the camera's Ni-MH and Lithium-Ion batteries. The cameras are also compatible with the Kodak EasyShare printer dock 6000 (suggested $199.95), introduced at PMA show earlier this year.

SiPix announced that it will ship the StyleCam DV100 for a suggested retail of $129 next month.

The pocket-sized DV100 combines a full-featured digital video camera with a 1.3-megapixel still camera. The DV100 captures AVI video up to 640 by 480 at eight frames per second (fps). Video can also be captured at a resolution of 320 by 240 and 160 by 120 at 15 fps. Users can preview the video on the unit's 1.6-inch color LCD screen or connect via the included A/V cable to a TV.

The camera features a 2x digital zoom, USB connectivity, 8MB of internal flash memory and an SD slot for memory expansion up to 256MB.
