KODAK INTRODUCES 'SIMULATOR' SOFTWARE FOR TEACHING PHOTOGRAPHY

 KODAK INTRODUCES 'SIMULATOR' SOFTWARE
 FOR TEACHING PHOTOGRAPHY
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) today announced a computer software package that helps people master photographic skills. As part of the product launch, Kodak is offering 250 software packages free to high schools and colleges with established photography curricula or camera clubs. Kodak PCphotographer simulates a 35 mm single-lens reflex camera on IBM-compatible personal computers. Simple keyboard or mouse operations let users select a scene, appropriate film speed and type, camera position, and practice adjusting camera settings, including flash.
 Then a simulated photograph is exposed, developed, and displayed in a simulated on-screen photo album. The software leads users through basic photographic techniques, while challenging more advanced amateurs to improve their skills. The user can choose a basic 35 mm SLR or a more advanced simulated model with extra capabilities. They can practice metering, bracketing, controlling depth-of-field, and working with both fixed and zoom lenses.
 Experimenters see in seconds how their settings affect their final pictures. The screen image shows any over- or underexposure, motion, or focus problems caused by improper photographic techniques. Kodak PCphotographer will be distributed through photo retailers and computer software outlets and is priced under $60. For further details on the limited offering for high schools and colleges, schools or club officials can call 800-242-2424, ext. 67.
