ConsOnly JPG files, just a 2.1 MPixel Camera

Epson is a not very popular make of digital cameras and I still don't understand why. So join me for a lesson in buying unpopular (and that means more cheap) products. ;-) I bought this 2.1 Megapixels camera in June of 2000 for about 450 Pounds, already knowing 3 Megapixel cameras are coming out...

Product Information : Epson PhotoPC 850Z

Manufacturer's product description

The EPSON PhotoPC 850Z puts an arsenal of creative firepower at your fingertips. Its 3X optical zoom lens lets you zoom from 35mm to 105mm with the touch of a button. And your images download quickly to USB-enabled computers. Need a high-powered flash? The built-in hot shoe makes attaching optional flash units a snap. The lens adapter makes switching between close-up, wide angle and telephoto converter lenses a breeze. And you can even record and play back (right from the camera) up to a 10-second message for each image you take. Plus, the PhotoPC 850Z gives you the ability to store lots of images. It accepts Type I and Type II CompactFlash cards. If you've used a 35mm SLR camera before, you'll feel right at home with the PhotoPC 850Z. You get complete control of the shutter and aperture priorities, and you can adjust the focus, use matrix metering, or spot metering, and even change the sensitivity setting and white balance. The PhotoPC 850Z's CCD sensor and exclusive HyPict technology boost the camera's resolution to a phenomenal 1984 x 1488 pixels for breathtaking images as large as 11" x 14". And a built-in Solar Assist LCD panel extends battery life by using the sun to light the LCD in direct sunlight. If you're looking for a high-quality, professional digital camera, take a look at the EPSON PhotoPC 850Z. With this much firepower at your disposal, there's no telling what you'll create!
