February 20, 2005: Kodak’s new Z-Series cameras are designed to bring everyday picture-takers closer to their subjects, offering higher zoom ratios and above-average sensor resolution.
Top of the range is the 5-megapixel EasyShare Z7590, which features a Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon lens with 10x optical zoom (38-380mm equivalent). Ideal for intermediate level photographers who want a camera with a multitude of controls plus an easy users interface, the Z7590 is the first Z-Series camera to feature flash sync connection. It also provides a live histogram display, which enables users to see the exposure of their subject before taking the shot plus Kodak’s Color Science image processor, which produces portraits with edge-to-edge sharpness and brightness, rich colour, and accurate exposure. The Z7590 is due for release worldwide in May.
Kodak also unveiled its new EasyShare Z730 digicam, which is ideal for picture-takers who want a responsive camera that is easy to use. It combines a Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 4X optical zoom lens (33-132 mm equivalent) with a 5-megapixel CCD sensor and sports a 2.2-inch, high-resolution LCD screen that can be used to preview and instantly review shots. Continuous auto-focus delivers rapid click-to-capture (0.2 second) to freeze action at a desired moment, while the lithium-ion battery delivers extended shoot times and rapid recharging. The EasyShare Z730 camera will be available worldwide beginning in May 2005.
Both cameras are compatible with Kodak’s new EasyShare Printer Dock Series 3, which is the first to support the new ImageLink print system. They will also work with the new EasyShare Camera Dock Series 3. The Z-Series cameras include new Kodak EasyShare software version 4.0 for Windows and Macintosh systems, for easy digital picture organisation, editing, sharing and printing. The exclusive One Touch to Better Pictures feature takes advantage of proprietary colour technologies developed by Kodak to help users get vibrant, true-to-life prints from inkjet printers. The new camera docks are also scheduled for release in May. For more information visit www.kodak.com/go/easyshare.
