Kodak DC260 1.3 mp
Kodak DC260 digital camera
I still have it and it works as good as when I bought it. It takes great photos and I've had a lot of fun with it.
It only holds 11 photos at its best quality and 30 something at its lowest setting with the factory memory card.
It takes about 15 seconds to store a photo and eats batteries for lunch. The rule is replace the memory card and the batteries at the same time.
I'm still glad I started with it though.
The Kodak DC260 was released in 1998, and the fact that Ken is still using his goes a long way towards proving “they don’t make ‘em like they used to!”
As well as taking photos in the now de facto standard of JPEG, the DC260 could also take photos in the “Flashpix” format. I suspect this is a rarely used format for two reasons:
- First, the file sizes are absolutely huge!
- Second, it is only supported by Kodak, Microsoft, HP and Live Picture Inc.
Still, it was (and continues to be in Ken’s case) a good digital camera.
Thanks Ken for posting!
