Manufacturer Overview
Kodak has long been a leader in the digicam field, with a product line that spans the spectrum from entry-level consumer models all the way to the highest-end (literally) 6 megapixel professional cameras. Most of their recent activity in the consumer marketplace has been in the middle to upper end of the market, but they're now readdressing the low and middle ranges of their product spectrum. A two megapixel camera, the DC3400 is about in the middle of Kodak's range of consumer digicams.

The DC3400 updates Kodak's earlier DC280 2 megapixel digicam with a new sensor, slightly lower power consumption, while retaining the rich, vibrant colors that made the DC280 so popular. Read on for all the details...
