OLED Display on Kodak digital camera

    Spotted in a Retravision catalogue some time last week. There was a
    Kodak digital still camera that claimed to have an "OLED" display
    providing briliant colours. I could spot no model number in the
    description or picture. (Can't remember the price either but I think
    it was around $700 - $1000).

    Is this an organic LED display? I didn't think they were anything near
    market ready. Perhaps they meant OLED backlighting, perhaps even using
    it for colour modulation (but I doubt that).

    Perhaps I am confusing OLEDs with polymer LEDs which I thought were,
    at the least, very similar just a different name for different
    backers.

    Yes I think I was quite confused. By polymer LED's I meant Light
    Emitting Polymers (LEPs) and these are in all likelyhood very
    different. I remember first reading about OLEDs not long after all the
    noise about LEPs . Considering how liitle noise was made about OLEDs,
    I assumed that they were just the same things being researched by
    another company that either couldn't use the trademark LEP or wanted
    to distinguish itself. My mistake there, I have not heard any hint
    that LEPs work on an LED principle (photon pops out when electron
    jumps to lower energy level - wonder what happens at the joint between
    dopped substrate and wire). For those who don't know, polymers (or
    plastics) are an organic compound - ie carbon based.
