Chicago — Spectra expanded its lineup of Polaroid branded digital cameras with the introduction of three new models.
The first model, the iON 230, is a member of the company’s iON family of small form factor cameras and docks that double as Web-cams. The iON 230 is a 2-megapixel model, weighing in at four ounces (with the battery) and featuring 16MB of internal memory, a 2x digital zoom, SD expansion slot and flash with red-eye reduction.
The iON comes bundled with a USB dock that also serves as a battery charger and USB hub with three slave USB ports. It also ships with iON PhotoBase media management software designed for transferring images to the computer and organizing them once on the hard drive.
The camera is shipping now for a suggested retail price of $249.99.
Stepping up to a larger form factor, the new seven-ounce PDC 2070 features 2.1-megapixel resolution with a 3x digital zoom, 8MB of internal memory and a SmartMedia slot for expansion memory. It’s capable of recording audio clips as well as serving as a Web-cam when connected to the PC.
