Kodak had the new EasyShare V1273 touch screen ultra-compact out and about on Sunday evening, and Monday’s official press announcement, while not offering much detail, confirmed the specs we saw in action.

The Kodak EasyShare V1273 will feature a 12-megapixel sensor, a Schneider-Kreuznach 3x (37-111mm) Varigon zoom, and a 3-inch LCD with touch interface. The Kodak EasyShare V1073 will wear the same basic setup, swapping the V1273’s 12-megapixel sensor for a 10-megapixel unit.

Dual image stabilization, using both presumably sensor-shift and ISO adjustment technology, appears on the V1273. The HD-enabled V1273 is also designed to easily capture high-def video and images. Kodak’s optional HD Photo Dock provides camera connectivity for HDTVs.

Retail release should happen during the first half of this year. Kodak lists an anticipated price range for the V-model cameras between $199 and $279.
