Disney unveils character-themed digital cameras 'Disney Pix' in the US













MUMBAI: Disney Consumer Products, the merchandising segment of The Walt Disney Company has launched a new line of Disney Pix digital cameras specifically designed for kids and tweens.


Available in a variety of styles and character-themed designs for all ages, 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 Disney Consumer Products, Global Electronics vice president Chris Heatherly.


The starting price for the range is $19.99. Disney‘s imaging products also come with the Disney Pix software, designed to inspire a child‘s creativity and imagination.

A video editing version is also available for digital camcorder products, informs an official release.

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," adds Heatherly.
