Kodak Easyshare Z7590 (May - $450)
The Kodak Easyshare Z7590 camera is ideal for people who want to further experiment with photography using a fast performing digital camera that includes both automatic and manual settings. Specifically, the Z7590 model offers a professional quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON 10X optical zoom lens (38 -- 380 mm equivalent) for outstanding dynamic range, fine detail and delicate highlights, and it is the first Z-Series camera to feature flash sync connection. Further, the camera is equipped with a live histogram, which enables users to see the exposure of their subject before taking the shot. Additionally, the exclusive Kodak Color Science chip results in portraits with edge-to-edge sharpness and brightness, rich color, and highly accurate exposure.
Kodak Easyshare Z730 (May - $350)
Designed for "zoom seeking" picture takers, the fast-performing Kodak Easyshare Z730 digital camera incorporates advanced features that offer outstanding performance without sacrificing ease of use. The professional quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON 4X optical zoom lens (33-132 mm equivalent) allows greater photography experimentation and more range than with a comparable 3X optical zoom. In addition, a 2.2-inch, high-resolution LCD screen can be used to preview and instantly review shots. Continuous auto-focus delivers rapid click-to-capture (0.2 second), precisely freezing action at a desired moment, while the lithium-ion battery delivers extended shoot times and rapid recharging.
