" > > http://www.imagek.com It actually did come up in a couple of the messages in this thread. Sure looks like a great idea, but so far it's vaporware. I dunno if these guys are actually going to get this one off the ground. Further, the resolution they're touting is only around 1.3 megapixels, which has been bypassed by actual shipping products long since. My sources tell me that we have 6 megapixel cameras in the $5,000 range on the way from three or four separate manufacturers within the next six months. That's important only because that price range is, to me, the break point below which digital cameras tend to be more amateur-oriented, above which you're usually looking at sophisticated professional gear. The 6 megapixel figure is to me, a sort of "magic number" at which you can produce a very competent 8.5 x 11 page (or 8x10 photograph), especially if it's in a 3k x 2k format. Until now, the only digital cameras with 6 Megapixel chips have been in the $23,000 bracket. david - Please: Stay on topic. Trim quoted messages. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
