Epson PhotoPC 650

The PhotoPC 650 is a lot of digital camera for the money. Its 1,152-x-864-pixel resolution allows you to print images up to 5-x-7 inches with more-than-satisfactory results. An 1.8-inch LCD monitor gives instant preview and playback, as well as providing information regarding the number of pictures remaining, battery life and resolution-quality mode. Auto-flash is handy, too. An 8MB USB-enabled CompactFlash card by Lexar Media comes as standard with the camera – but you’ll need to buy a card reader, which will bump the price up a bit. The 8MB card can store 47 fine- or 88 standard-resolution images. Epson’s PhotoPC 650’s software bundle also includes the excellent PictureWorks HotShots for retrieving, organizing and enhancing images.
