Default BT/Fujifilm to trial new "Digital Photo Kiosks"

----
The first "Digital Photo Kiosks" have just been installed at London Luton
Airport, the Blackpool Tower, St John's Shopping Precinct in Liverpool, the
Coppergate shopping centre in York and in the Corus hotels, at Hyde Park in
London and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Initially ten kiosks are planned for a six-month trial across the UK. The
kiosks will be rolled out nationwide to major tourist attractions, hotels,
airports and shopping centres if the trial is successful.

BT and Fujifilm have developed the kiosks to offer digital camera users a
more convenient way of processing their pictures. Digital imaging
specialists, ePOINT, are supplying the touchscreen terminals.

The kiosks are the first to use high speed BT Broadband for customers to
transfer their photos and send them for processing.
Customers insert their camera memory card or CD into the terminal to copy
their files. They can view and edit the images on the colour screen and
order prints and CDs of their photos. Their files are not deleted from their
camera media card.

The images are processed using Fujifilm equipment and delivered to the door,
anywhere in the world.

The new kiosks are ideal for tourists away from home, people without access
to a PC with the right software, or anyone who wants a quick and convenient
way of getting prints from their digital camera.

A good idea, Seems a bit pointless not having the photos instantly when
kodak have one (in boots stores) that prints the pictures as well, stand
alone running 2000 Pro its nearly (i.e. acceptable but not as) as good as
the fuji frontier printers but instant

Its a lot cheaper/simpler for BT/Fujifilm to send the images back to their
"base" via ADSL, rather than installing equipment in every single "digital
kiosk" (phone box!?) - assuming there is even space for that in something
that size.

Less servicing, ...
A service that offers to hold your prints on a secure server, available
for printing at any time for a couple of years (or even forever) would
be handy in some ways.
No need to carry photos around that may get lost in suitcases for example,
and the knowledge that once you've committed it, it's safe.

I'm sure I saw something very similar at Stratford upon Avon Safeway
store a few months ago.

It definitely had slots for memory cards...
