One year after the announcement of the IMAGELINK print system -- a specification
designed to simplify at-home picture printing -- new cameras and printers
supporting the standard are being released. Joining a host of KODAK EASYSHARE
cameras and printer docks already released this year, Olympus has announced the
Camedia C315 zoom digital camera, the D555 zoom digital camera and ILP-100 printer
dock which are all IMAGELINK compatible.



"The IMAGELINK print system is one of the world's most important digital
photography advancements for consumers and we at Olympus are very pleased to be
among the first to introduce products compatible with this system," said
Mr. Bang Il Seok, director, Marketing Division Manager of Olympus Imaging Corp.




Millions of consumer digital cameras from Eastman Kodak Company, Konica Minolta
Photo Imaging, Inc., Nikon Corporation, Olympus Corporation, Pentax Corporation,
Ricoh Co., Ltd. and Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. will provide effortless, one-touch
picture printing from snapshot printers that incorporate the IMAGELINK print system,
including new KODAK EASYSHARE printer docks.



A consumer Web site dedicated to the IMAGELINK print system went live earlier
this year. The site -- www.imagelinkprintsystem.com
-- includes links to compatible digital camera and printer information, an
animated presentation to help people visualize the camera-printer connection,
frequently asked questions and news related to the specification.
