 LOGITECH SHIPS FOTOMAN DIGITAL CAMERA FOR MACINTOSH;
 FOTOMAN ADDS REAL-LIFE IMAGES TO DOCUMENTS, PRESENTATIONS
 FREMONT, Calif., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Logitech Inc., worldwide leader in computer pointing and input devices, said it is now shipping FotoMan(TM) Digital Camera for Macintosh. Announced earlier this year, FotoMan allows users to take photographs and download them directly into their Macintosh system.
 Bundled with Aldus(R) Digital Darkroom(TM) image editing software, FotoMan produces images that are easily transferred to the Macintosh desktop unit or Powerbook(TM) through a serial cable. No frame grabbers, digitizers or extra boards are needed. FotoMan can store up to 32 images on an internal RAM chip. These images can be stored in standard image file formats -- TIFF, PICT, etc. -- and used in applications such as desktop publishing, image databases and presentation graphics. The camera includes an automatic flash unit and can use standard camcorder lenses to achieve special effects.
 "Logitech is strengthening its commitment to the Macintosh market with the addition of FotoMan to its family of products," said Peter Phillips, product marketing manager for FotoMan. "As an additional imaging solution, FotoMan is a great complement to the Logitech Macintosh line, which includes ScanMan(R) Model 32 hand-held scanner, and our ergonomic pointing devices," Phillips added.
 The FotoMan/Digital Darkroom bundle retails for $799.
 System requirements for FotoMan include Macintosh Plus or greater -- including Powerbook and Quadra -- and System 6.04 and higher.
 FotoMan carries Logitech's limited lifetime warranty. In addition, the company offers seven-day-a-week technical assistance hotline, a technical support electronic bulletin board, FaxBack and a CompuServe Forum.
