Excerpt: Last year, the Epson PhotoPC 3100Z Digital Camera would have led the pack in image quality, features, performance, and value. Its 3.3-megapixel CCD creates excellent 4.8-megapixel images through hardware interpolation—with a major hit in recycle time. Although they sell for several hundred dollars more, comparable 4-megapixel models (like the Olympus and Sony units) produce quality images without lagging in performance.
Excerpt: For ideal image quality, the Epson PhotoPC 3100Z emphasizes enhanced contrast and moderately saturated, realistic colors. This ergonomically shaped, 3-megapixel digital camera is one of the easiest to operate in its class, with well-placed controls and a simple but extensive menu structure. It offers fast boot-up time, no discernable shutter lag, and quick recycling. The 3100Z comes with video and audio capabilities.
Summary: The Epson PhotoPC 3100Z has a 3.34-megapixel imager and is loaded with "real camera" exposure modes like aperture and shutter speed priority , full manual, programmed AE (normal, landscape, portrait, sports) as well as timed interval exposures. It captures still images up to 2544 x 1904 pixels using the HyPict (interpolated) mode as well as JPEG compressed or TIFF Uncompressed 2048 x 1536, 1600 x 1200 or 640 x 480 images.
