Epson | Digitial Camera | EPSON PhotoPC 850Z Two Megapixel USB Zoom Digital Camera

EPSON
®
VERSATILE, TWO MEGAPIXEL USB ZOOM DIGITAL
CAMERA WITH ADVANCED FEATURES FOR
CREATIVE FIREPOWER.
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 Windows® 98, iMac™ and Power
Macintosh® G3 computers and serial port-equipped
Windows and PowerPC 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 comes with an 8MB CompactFlash™ memory
card and 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!
