The same Kodak Wi-Fi card that provides the EasyShare-One camera with wireless capabilities can now be used with the recently introduced Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock Plus. In addition to printing real Kodak pictures in as little as 60 seconds without a computer, it can now transfer pictures from a docked camera or memory card to networked computers throughout a home. With the card, the Printer Dock Plus can also receive pictures for printing from Wi-Fi-enabled laptops, PDAs, and other devices without requiring them to be in the same room.
Buying a digital camera is a great investment for many people, since it allows them to take as many photos as they want without ever having to buy film again. However, with so many of them on the market, it's tough to decide how to choose a digital camera. However, if you pay attention to a few key factors the decision gets much easier.
Perhaps the most important factor in deciding how to choose a digital camera is the camera's resolution. A camera's resolution, measured in megapixels, is probably the best reflection of how good the photos from the camera will be. If you're just taking photos to post on the web or send via email you don't need to worry about resolution quite so much, but if you plan on printing any of your photos you should get the highest resolution you can afford.
'Consumer Reports' recently tested nearly 70 digital cameras and says the emphasis on megapixels is part of the game manufacturers play to get people to buy more expensive cameras.
'Consumer Reports' says many people just share photos online or make small prints. Tests show for that you don't need a high megapixel camera. 'Consumer Reports' compared photos from a 10 megapixel SLR with a five megapixel point and shoot camera. They found very little difference between the pictures.
So for small prints and sharing photos online, 'Consumer Reports' says the five megapixel Canon PowerShot A530 is a very good choice, it costs about $180.
But if you're giving a camera to someone who's interested in cropping photos and blowing them up to 8 X 10 size, that's when higher megapixels can pay off. More megapixels allow you to get more sharpness and resolution.
So to be able to make big prints, 'Consumer Reports' recommends a ten megapixel SLR from Nikon, the D200, which it costs $1,700.
'Consumer Reports' says if you're looking for a subcompact camera that will fit in a purse or pocket, consider the Casio EXILIM Zoom EX-Z750 with seven megapixels for $300.'
