Kodak DC50 Zoom (1996)

While Dycam, Ritz Camera Centers, Chinon and Promaster sold this model almost unmodified, Kodak leaned back and watched how the camera did on the market. After seeing it's success, Kodak learned from the weak points of the camera and improved it technically with a better CCD and better image compression algorithms. They announced it 1996-01-09 and sold it as the Kodak DC50 Zoom.

Compared to the other OEM models, the DC50 had a better CCD (KAF-0400C) with higher resolution although it came from the previously released Kodak DC40. In fact, the CCD already existed in 1993! At the time of market release it was the only digital camera under $1,000 to support PC Cards Type I and II.
