Kodak combines digital video, music and pictures into a portable package.
Eastman Kodak Co has introduced the Kodak mc3, a portable device that combines digital video capabilities, an MP3 player and a digital still camera.
Weighing just 5.5oz without batteries and measuring 2.6x4.1 inches, the mc3 incorporates a full-colour reflective LCD screen to enable users to preview and review their video and pictures even in bright sunlight while a microphone and speaker have been built in to simplify video capturing and play back.
Other features include an ability to record over 20 minutes of non-stop video in Quick Time format on a 64Mb CompactFlash card, a capability to use the included Real Jukebox software to convert music from CDs to MP3 format and the use of Kodak's own CMOS image sensor technology to enable the device to capture images under all lighting conditions.
The mc3, which supports both the Macintosh and Microsoft Windows computer platforms, is expected to be available in March priced under USD300.
