In a midnight announcement, Kodak made public the next continuation model in its high-zoom Z lineup, the Kodak EasyShare Z1012 IS. Building on the basic package put forward by the Z812 IS and visually nearly identical to its predecessor, the new model features 10 megapixels of resolution, a 12x optical zoom, and image stabilization.
Kodak announced this week that its stylish new Z1085 IS, on display at CES, would be up for sale by March of this year. The 10-megapixel Z1085 IS features a 5x zoom and optical image stabilization.
The last day before CES 2008 officially begins is wrapping up, and while we neither expected nor received any major news from the major players today, new releases from some of the less prominent and dominant manufacturers, including Casio, Samsung, and Kodak, certainly got our attention.
Kodak's new cameras, the Easyshare Z812 IS, Easyshare V1253, and Easyshare V1233 bring Kodak to the HD-capable camera space. The three new cameras capture both widescreen format images (16:9) and 720p video at 30fps. A new dock allows the cameras to be plugged into your HDTV and a remote control feature lets you control image and movie playback from your bean bag chair. All three cameras will be available in August 2007, with the Z812 IS for $300, the V1253 for $300, and the V1233 for $250.
The new Kodak Easyshare C513 is the first Easyshare camera to feature the Kodak KAC-05011 CMOS image sensor. The camera is an entry-level camera, taking pictures at 5 megapixels, with a 3x optical zoom and 2.4 inch LCD. The CMOS sensor provides a lower cost and, ideally, better noise performance.
Kodak announced a new color filter technology for digital imaging sensors that promises to improve low-light shooting by 2x to 4x (one to two stops) when compared with current imaging sensors. Changes in the color filter (present as a layer on top of a sensor) allows the sensor to gather more light. This new technology will be available for sampling in the first quarter of 2008.
Today Kodak announced a total of six new digital cameras - four thin and stylish M-series cameras and two cameras to their existing Z line. The M cameras - the Easyshare M753, M853, M873, and M883 - come in a variety of colors to satisfy your fashion needs. The Z1275 offers 12 megapixel resolution, and the ZD710 features a 10x optilcal zoom. The M753 will be available in July, the M853, M873, Z1275, and ZD710 will follow in August, with the M883 coming in September.
