Disney Consumer Products delivers a new line of Disney Pix digital cameras especially designed for kids and tweens
Available in a variety of styles and character-themed designs for all ages, including "High School Musical," "Cars" and "Pirates of the Caribbean," the new Disney Pix line features digital cameras, camcorders and peripherals that allow young users to shoot, edit, print and share their own digital photographs.
"Today's kids expect photography to be digital and see film as antique. They want to see their photos instantly, share them digitally, and modify them in all sorts of creative ways. The Disney Pix line was designed specifically to let this new generation use photos to unleash the power of their imaginations," said Chris Heatherly, vice president, Disney Consumer Products, Global Electronics. "Until now, digital cameras have been too complicated for kids and have generally been priced out of reach. The Disney Pix line delivers the functionality and creative play that kids are looking for in a variety of stylish designs at affordable price points that parents can say `yes' to."
With price points starting at just $19.99, Disney's imaging products also come with the Disney Pix(TM) software, designed to inspire a child's creativity and imagination. This proprietary, highly interactive and easy-to-use editing software suite allows users to customize their photos with Disney characters, stamps, frames and more. A video editing version is also available for digital camcorder products.
Designed by Disney in partnership with its manufacturer, Digital Blue, the new Disney Pix line features eight products suitable for all ages and budgets.
