Polaroid soon discovered that many of their units were finding use in studio-based product photography, and with remarkable agility for a corporation of their size, responded with Polaroid PDC 20003000 "studio kit" facilitating us with studio strobes, and giving the photographer more control over camera operation.


The current PDC continues and extends this focus, with excellent camera control capabilities from the host computer. It also includes a number of Polaroid innovations affecting image quality and the usability of images for multiple purposes "repurposing". In the review below, we'll spend a fair amount of time discussing Polaroid's unique "Image Quality Architecture" IQA and their concept of the "Polaroid Digital Negative" PDNbecause Polaroid PDC 20003000 believe they offer significant value to users who fit the particular niche the PDC was designed for. Overview The first thing that stands out about the PDC is its unusual design: The overall appearance is that of something from a Buck Rogers set, with jet-black, rounded contours, and interesting bulges everywhere.

Its cast-metal body gives it a very solid feel, and its weight of 2 pounds 0. The weight and broad form factor though, contribute to a very stable shooting platform: We believe most users will find it easier to hold steady for available-light shots than they would a camera with a more conventional form factor.

The camera sports a 1 million pixel CCD image sensor, using patented "pastel" color filtration to allow higher resolution for luminance "brightness" information. While requiring a higher level of integration with the host computer system, the very high transfer rate of the SCSI interface makes it truly practical to use the computer's CRT as a viewfinder during tethered Polaroid PDC 20003000. For studio users, the exact framing this provides is a decided plus.

Its case has the wide aspect ratio of a set of binoculars, rather than the boxy shape of a conventional camera. Overall dimensions are 7. Given these dimensions, this clearly is Polaroid PDC 20003000 a camera to tuck in your shirt pocket.

On the other hand, we found the size and heft very welcome when handholding the camera for longer exposures, and felt that the wide, two-handed grip it provides makes for a more stable picture-taking platform. Viewfinder The viewfinder on the PDC is optical, consisting of a small "telescope" mounted slightly above and to the left of the main lens. The outer frame of the viewfinder displays the area captured by Polaroid PDC 20003000 wide-angle lens shipped with the camera, while an inner rectangle marks the field of view of the optional short telephoto. The viewfinder of the original PDC was one of its weakest elements, and this appears to be one area that's been improved on the PDC The PDC viewfinder is much clearer and more accurate than that on the earlier model.

The PDC's viewfinder also has a very high "eyepoint," making it easy for eyeglass wearers to use. A higher eyepoint means your eye can be further from the camera body and still see the full viewfinder frame, a particularly important feature if you Polaroid PDC 20003000 glasses.

The field of view through the viewfinder was also almost completely insensitive to Polaroid PDC 20003000 eye position. Our first test sample of the PDC showed a slight but noticeable rotation of the viewfinder field of view relative to the captured image. Although the effect was slight, and easily compensated for, an embarassed Polaroid assured us this was not customary, and immediately shipped a replacement without the problem.

The camera ships with a 38mm-equivalent unit as standard equipment, and an optional 60mm-equivalent version is also Polaroid PDC 20003000. The lenses attach via threaded mounts: The all-glass lenses themselves appear to be as solidly constructed as the rest of the camera, and at f2.

The PDC autofocus system takes advantage of ultrasonic-ranging technology Polaroid first pioneered in their SX instant camera many years ago. This system works by Polaroid PDC 20003000 a "chirp" of ultrasonic sound waves you'll hear it as a slight click before the shutter tripsand then measuring how long it takes for them to bounce off the subject and return to the camera.

This method has the advantage that it can work in complete darkness, and also isn't fooled by unusual subject content. Venetian blinds and other objects with strong horizontal patterns can cause problems for some autofocus systems.

On the downside, if there's a piece of glass between you and the subject, the PDC's autofocus system will "see" and focus on the glass, rather than your subject. If you need to shoot through a window, you can turn off the autofocus system by pressing the "AF" button on the camera's top panel, Polaroid PDC 20003000 the focus to Polaroid PDC 20003000. In our tests, we found the PDC's autofocus both accurate and very sensitive: The camera displays the distance to the subject on the top-panel readout, and responds to movements of as little as an inch or two.
