KODAK EASYSHARE HDTV Dock

September 4, 2007 Despite the myriad of benefits offered by the era of digital photography, one downside is that images can remain locked away on memory cards or buried within computer hard drives and never see the light of day. Kodak’s latest releases are designed to address this issue by facilitating simple capture and display options for viewing high-definition pictures on wide-screen HDTVs and digital picture frames.  Read More

New Kodak image sensor technology could redefine digital image capture

June 16, 2007 Kodak has announced a groundbreaking advancement in image sensor technology that provides a 2x to 4x increase in sensitivity to light (from one to two photographic stops) compared to current sensor designs. Kodak’s new technology also enables faster shutter speeds (to reduce motion blur when imaging moving subjects), as well as the design of smaller pixels (leading to higher resolutions in a given optical format) while retaining performance. The first Kodak sensor to use this technology is expected to be available for sampling in the first quarter of 2008.  Read More

Kodak announces 5X Zoom Easyshare C875 Digital Camera

August 8, 2006 The compact digital camera market continues to heat up with the announcement that KODAK will bring a new Easyshare C875 Zoom Digital Camera to market later this month. Though it doesn’t quite match the 10x optical zoom of the US$350 Panasonic DMC-TZ1S, it does come with a 5X all glass SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH optical zoom lens and spits out 8.0 MPX images (compared to the Panasonic’s 5MPX), not to mention all that really easy-to-use Kodak EasyShare functionality. Official US and UK pricing hasn’t been announced yet but the Australian price has been officially announced at AUD$399, which brings it in at a tad over US$300, making it highly competitive.  Read More

Dual lens Bluetooth-enabled 6 MPX, 10X optical zoom pocketsize digital camera

April 26, 2006 Eastman Kodak once owned the world photographic market and since the advent of digital cameras, it has been fighting the good fight attempting to maintain its leading role, largely focussing on ease-of-use as its point-of-difference. Yesterday, the US-based company celebrated the fifth anniversary of its first Easyshare consumer digital camera and docking system which has seen the company reclaim number one digital camera market share in the U.S. To mark the occasion, it released details of a new compact (4.4 x 2.2 x 0.9 inches) US$449 V610 model with the company’s now trademark dual lens, but also with Bluetooth, 6 megapixels, and a 10X optical zoom. Even with its whopping 38-380 mm equivalent zooms lens it is less than an inch thick. It combines two Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon all-glass, non-protruding prism lenses to deliver the long zoom range and incorprates anti-blur technology to enable novices to handhold the high zoom in low light and still produce excellent images.  Read More

The diamond encrusted US$20,000 Kodak Easyshare camera

March 2, 2006 Being nominated for an Academy Award is an indication of excellence at the highest level in the profession of filmmaking. Landing a nomination for one of the major awards also brings with it a bag of goodies worth hundreds of thousands of dollars including trips, stays at exclusive hotels and some exclusive jewellery, clothes, and gadgets. For example, each Best Actress nominee in the upcoming 78th Academy Awards will be treated to the “Ultimate Luxury Suite at The Four Seasons Hotel” which brings with it an array of goodies including a KODAK dual-lens EASYSHARE V570 digital camera. Normally, the V570 runs to US$400 but each of the five nominees (Reese Witherspoon, Felicity Huffman, Keira Knightley, Charlize Theron and Dame Judi Dench) will be getting a camera personalised with their initials in 75 brilliant-cut diamonds raising the cost to around US$20,000. What we'd like to know is why everybody (including the bookies) seems to think that Reese Witherspoon (those are her initials on the camera) is going to win. See the links at the bottom of the article and you'll wonder along with us!  Read More
