Contax N Digital 
Notes & Features: New digital SLR from Contax, announced late 2000, for delivery first quarter 2002. Contax is famous for the Zeiss line of optics, so many photographers are looking to the Contax N Digital to set a new benchmark for sharpness and optical quality. Also very noteworthy is that this will be one of the first cameras using the Philips full-frame 35mm CCD. (The 6-megapixel CCD chip covers the same area as a conventional 35mm film frame, meaning the focal length multiplier ratio is 1.0.) More in-depth details and coverage of Contax's official US announcement can be found here.   New digital SLR from Contax, announced late 2000, for delivery first quarter 2002.
