The KODAK EasyShare DX3700 is a great "starter" camera for those who are just getting into digital photography. Its 3-megapixel CCD (2160 x 1440 picture resolution) will yield photo-quality prints up to 11" x 14". A 3X digital zoom feature lets you get closer to the fun.

Picture-taking made simple - all you have to do is press a button. That's how easy it is. And what's even easier is how quickly you'll be able to capture your favorite moments. With 8MB of internal memory it's ready to go right out of the box. The MultiMedia Card/Secure Digital memory card (MMC/SD) expansion slot allows you to further expand the camera memory up to 128MB.

The Kodak EasyShare system features a camera dock and the new "DX" series digital camera models (DX3215, DX3500, DX3600, DX3700, DX3900). The camera dock addresses two of the biggest objections to digital cameras: easy connection and battery charging.

Once the camera is placed in the dock, pictures are automatically uploaded to the computer and the dock recharges the camera's battery pack. The system also includes software that allows users to connect to the Internet to e-mail or print their pictures. EasyShare makes picture sharing as easy as picture taking: one-button simple.

Using Kodak Picture Software, the EasyShare system makes digital picture taking and sharing one-button simple. Features of the system include:

    Fast Picture Transfer: At the touch of a button, the camera dock automatically transfers the pictures into the computer within seconds, avoiding the need to fuss with connecting cables or load memory cards into reading devices. Consumers no longer face a mystery of how to get their pictures out of the digital camera.

    Easy Picture Sharing: The Kodak Picture Software incorporated into the EasyShare system lets you simply e-mail or print your favorite pictures. A few more clicks, and you can also edit and enhance them.

    Simple Picture Management: The system lets you organize your pictures automatically in folders the way you want them: by date, name or event. It also lets you automatically delete all pictures on the camera after they are transferred to a computer, readying the camera for more picture taking.

    Convenient Battery Recharging: The camera is powered and recharged in the dock in less than two and a half hours, or half the time required by competing chargers.

The camera and dock may be packaged and sold seperately.
