Excerpt: Big and heavy, the DC5000 is the one digital camera you'll want on the trail, beach, or oil rig. The camera itself is very similar to the DC3400: It has a virtually identical feature set and produces the same excellent pictures. But no-slip black rubber "ruggedizes" the body, a screw-in filter covers the lens, switches and buttons can be operated with gloves on, and tight-sealing O-rings protect the ports.
Excerpt: Designed for people who need to take digital pictures for the sake of documentation rather than for art, the Kodak DC5000 ($699 list) is geared toward those who shoot in the field under adverse conditions—such as construction crews, insurance agents, and government agents, among many others. The DC5000 has a 2-megapixel CCD that produces a maximum resolution of 1,760-by-1,168, which is high enough to produce 8-by-10 enlargements clearly.
