Kodak Goodies At CES - Easyshare V803, Easyshare V1003 Digital Cameras and Digital Photo Frames
by Ben Stafford -  12/19/2006

Kodak is providing plenty of reasons for people to visit their booth at this year's CES. They've announced two new digital cameras - Easyshare V803 and Easyshare V1003 - and an entire line of digital photo frames. In addition to the "gadgets", they're also announcing additional services for storing, sharing and organizing your images - their kiosks will now write DVDs, they will have an image backup service via Kodak Gallery, and they're working on software that will be able to scan through your images to find similar faces. Their booth personnel will certainly be hopping with all of this to show off.

With their camera offerings, Kodak continues to appeal to the female buyer. Market research in the past has shown that female digital camera owners preferred the Kodak brand over any other brand. The digital cameras announced today are available in many colors and have a softer, rounded off design that may appeal to more women.

Kodak is also announcing a new service through the online Kodak Gallery service. For a small fee, they will provide an image protection service that will essentially give you a backup of all of your images. If you lose the contents of a hard drive, this service will restore your backed up images.

The new digital photo frames from Kodak enforce Kodak's mantra of making it easy to share images. They are introducing four models, that offer high resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, stereo speakers and interchangeable faces. Two models in their line will have built-in wireless (802.11) capabilities.
