QuickTake 100 to 150 Upgrade

Send Article to a Friend

QuickTake 100 to 150 Upgrade -- Apple announced last week that owners of the QuickTake 100 digital camera can upgrade to a full QuickTake 150 for about $200 through 30-Nov-95. Units have to be sent to an upgrade center to be fitted with new components, a close-up lens, batteries, and software. It's worth noting that the Mac upgrade comes with PhotoFlash 2.0, a reasonably nifty and scriptable image editor. QuickTake 100 owners can upgrade by calling 800/399-5111 to receive a prepaid shipping container. Apple plans to turn around upgrades within two weeks. [GD]
