Kodak Slashes Price of RFS 3600 Scanner, Offering 3,600 Exposures of Film
Press release from the issuing company
ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 29 -- Kodak Professional is making it more enticing than ever to purchase its popular RFS 3600 film scanner by slashing the price, tossing in 100 free rolls of film in a special limited-time promotion, and including new Adobe Elements software in the box.
"The RFS 3600 scanner has always been a great buy, but now it's a great value and well within reach of many more photographers and studios," said Donald Pillittere, Worldwide Product Manager, Scanner Products, Kodak Professional. "Our goal is to introduce the benefits of digital imaging to a much broader segment of professional photographers, photo enthusiasts and imaging houses. We think this package of incentives will be hard to ignore."
The price reduction means the suggested U.S. list price of the scanner drops to $999.
Get 3,600 With a 3600
Until October 31, 2001, anyone buying an RFS 3600 scanner can also receive 3,600 exposures (100 36-exposure rolls) of Kodak Professional 35mm film. Scanner buyers have their choice of Ektachrome transparency films (E100S, E100SW, E100VS, E200 and EPP), Portra color negative films (160VC, 160NC, 400VC, 400NC and 800) and T-Max and Tri-X black-and-white films (TM, TMY and TX).
Film selections must be made in blocks of 20 rolls. To receive the film, buyers need only submit a sales receipt, the bar code from the scanner box and a coupon that is available at dealers and downloadable from www.kodak.com/go/rfs3600offer.
New Adobe Elements Software
Now included with each RFS 3600 scanner is Adobe Elements software. This new software package from Adobe opens a host of opportunities to adjust, manipulate and apply scanned images. With Elements Software, it's easy to adjust images for color and brightness. A fill-flash feature, for example, allows brightening to only a section of an image.
The software includes a multitude of other creative options, including more than 90 special-effects features, and it easily integrates images into Web applications. Adobe Elements Software will even create a seamless panorama from a series of images.
The Kodak Professional RFS 3600 film scanner, at its new price, featuring the new Adobe software, and including information on the film promotion, is available from authorized dealers of Kodak Professional products.
