PRESS RELEASE

Tokyo (March 2, 2003) -- Konica Corporation showcases a 4-megapixel, optical 3x digital still camera with an ultra-slim, ultra-compact body, the Konica Revio KD-410Z at the PMA Show being held from March 2 to 5, in Las Vegas, USA. The new camera has a sleekly styled design and features Dual Slot, which accommodates the two most popular image storage media: SD Memory Card and Memory Stick. It will be launched in the US market starting this spring.

The Konica Revio KD-410Z has a classy, stainless-steel exterior and a sliding lens cover. The attractive, ultra-compact body is the result of Konica's renowned optical and high-integration mounting technologies. The camera is fitted with an optical 3x ZOOM HEXANON lens, which is very compact yet offers superlative photographic performance. The lens is easy to operate and realizes the full potential of the high-resolution CCD. The camera also has a very high image resolution of 4 million effective pixels (4.13 million total pixels). This draws on Konica's original Hybrid Adaptive 'A*IPS'*1 image processing technology to capture images with excellent realism and beauty, as well as faithful color reproduction. (*1'A*IPS': Pronounced A-Star IPS. 'A' refers to the automatic functions such as 'automatic exposure', 'auto-focus' and automatic white balance', while 'IPS' stands for 'image processing system.')

Thanks to a new signal processing engine, developed in-house by Konica, the Konica Revio KD-410Z has an ultra-fast startup time of 1.3 seconds*2. Versatility is enhanced by Dual Slot, which accommodates both SD Memory Card and Memory Stick storage media. Dual Slot helps broaden the scope for using captured images, facilitating interface with such devices as personal computers, PDAs, mobile phones, and digital VCRs. The camera has a host of other photographic modes, including up to 30 seconds of movies with voice, continuous shooting mode with 1.3 seconds between frames, and a macro photo mode allowing shots as close as 6 centimeters from the subject. These and other functions guarantee maximum photographic enjoyment in almost any situation. (*2 Using a 16MB SD Memory Card under normal conditions of continuous use)

The Konica Revio KD-410Z offers superlative performance and a wide range of shooting and playback functions-all inside a slim, compact, and stylish body. It combines realistic image quality with the fun that only digital cameras can provide. The camera is suitable for all users, from high-end amateurs who demand top image quality to those who enjoy processing and editing images on a personal computer. We are confident that the Konica Revio KD-410Z will satisfy a broad spectrum of customers.
