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.
The Epson PhotoPC 3100Z Image Quality And Options In One

Excerpt: As the sun finished its long descent down the horizon, the lights of Innsbruck sparkled over the Inn River. Looking down on the swirling mass of blue-gray water, I supported Epson's new PhotoPC 3100Z digital camera against the railing, adjusting the 3x optical zoom (comparable to 34-102mm) and released the shutter. The response was instantaneous, and the camera's wide f/2 aperture captured the line of row houses.
