PRESS RELEASE

Fremont, Calif., February 10, 2003 – SiPix has made sharing digital images a “one-click affair” with the release of the StyleCam Blink II, a tiny, sub-$40 digital camera that looks as cool as the pictures it takes.

SiPix revolutionized the world of photography in 2002 with the release of the original StyleCam Blink, a palm-sized digital camera designed for the youth and consumer markets. The StyleCam Blink II is even smaller and utilizes SiPix's proprietary CamWizard software to make transferring and sharing photos and AVI video clips as easy as snapping them.

The StyleCam Blink II can take up to 300 photos, be used as a PC camera, capture short AVI-format video clips and integrate seamlessly as a Webcam for live video conferencing via Yahoo! Instant Messenger, Microsoft NetMeeting and MSN Messenger. The StyleCam Blink II comes with a cool neck strap and a swivel metal clip so people on-the-go and gadget lovers can conveniently attach the tiny camera to a belt loop or backpack, or wear it around their neck.

“Consumers today are looking for digital cameras that are small and easy to carry with them everywhere they go, and the StyleCam Blink II is not only tiny, but it captures both pictures and AVI video clips,” said Marie Wesson, director of marketing for SiPix. “The new StyleCam Blink II is even smaller than its successful predecessor and we've added new features that make capturing and sharing pictures with family and friends even easier.”

The StyleCam Blink II includes a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable to connect it to a computer. The included tilt base holds the StyleCam Blink II securely when using it as a Webcam to have a live video conversation over the Internet.


Feature Set
The SiPix StyleCam Blink II is an ultra-small, lightweight digital camera, with 8MB of built-in memory that stores up to 300 images. It is compatible with PCs running Windows 98, 98se, Me, 2000 and XP. Download images by USB interface using the CamWizard “one click” software. Shoot pictures in Streaming Snapshot mode to rapidly capture images and then save them as AVI video clips. When connected to a PC with the included USB cable, the StyleCam Blink II is transformed into a video conferencing device for face-to-face conversations over the Internet in conjunction with popular instant messaging applications.  Also included is the tilt stand that is specially designed for positioning the StyleCam Blink II on a desktop or notebook computer. The super-cool neck strap and swivel clip make it easy to keep the camera close by. And the value-packed software bundle allows the imagination to run wild when working with StyleCam Blink II's pictures on the PC.

The sleek, tiny camera and powerful bundle of exceptionally versatile and easy-to-use premium photo and video software from ArcSoft can give imaginative users an experience that previously cost thousands of dollars in digital darkroom equipment and software.
