"Photographers welcome the camera's rich combination of features, robustness, versatility, image resolution, and on-the-job performance a combination unmatched by any other 6-megapixel camera."

The new camera is capable of a wide variety of uses including weddings and portraiture, editorial, on-figure fashion, commercial, travel, catalog and architectural photography either in the studio or on location.

The Kodak Professional 8660 Thermal Printer delivers unsurpassed photographic-quality, highly durable images, including matte finish portraits. Its enclosed printing system and cartridge ribbon allow for easier ribbon loading along with more reliable performance and artifact-free prints. It can be easily interfaced to Windows 95, 98 and NT and Macintosh platforms or shared over a network with the network card accessory.

Portraits & More PC Professional Software
PC Professional software offers a broad range of artistic options with multi-image composites and on-demand creativity.

It also simplifies changing backgrounds and borders, adding text, image retouching and making color corrections.
These components and the system they create is yet another example of Kodak's involvement in Infoimaging a $225 billion industry created by the convergence of images and information technology in ways that were never before possible. Infoimaging describes images, enabled by technology, improving communication and commerce, and creating significant new revenue and market opportunities for businesses.
