POPULAR SCIENCE HONORS KODAK'S DIGITAL CAMERA

 POPULAR SCIENCE HONORS KODAK'S DIGITAL CAMERA
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- "Popular Science" has


selected the Kodak professional digital camera system (DCS) as one of its "Best of What's New" for 1991. The camera employs a high-resolution charge-coupled device (CCD) and proprietary algorithms to take photographs electronically.
 According to David P. Biehn, Kodak vice president and general manager of Professional Imaging, the company is "delighted" the product is receiving this award. "We feel it recognizes our efforts in all areas of imaging," he noted.
 Unlike still video imaging systems, the DCS is digital through capture, storage, processing and output. In addition, Kodak applied its CCD technology and extensive research in color science to optimize both the sensor and the data processing electronics, as well as output devices.
 Kodak introduced the camera in May to meet the needs of photojournalists working on tight deadlines and of government agencies. Biehn noted, "While this camera can't give film's resolution, it fills a need no film can--rapid capture and communication of image data."
 The system lists at $20,000 for the basic model. The package includes the camera body, cabling, the storage unit and specially designed pack. Available with black-and-white or color sensors, it is compatible with Apple Macintosh II computers. This fall, the company announced a version that will provide compatibility with DOS-based systems. This version will be available in early 1992.
 The DCS employs a Nikon F3 camera body with a 1280 x 1024-pixel digital sensor in place of the film back. An 8-megabyte dynamic random access memory (DRAM) replaces the automatic winder. This memory enables the camera to capture and hold six images in less than three seconds. This configuration offers three to four times the resolution of standard still video images.
