Kodak is covering all the pictorial bases with the announcement of a new HD camcorder, touchscreen camera and touch-screen digital frame at CES this week.
Perhaps the pick of the bunch was the new PlaySport HD camcorder offering 1080p video recording, Facebook and YouTube uploading tools and the ability to work underwater down to 10 feet – handy for all the snorkelling enthusiasts out there.
With a 2-inch colour LCD display, it is capable of capturing 5-megapixel stills making it a more than decent all-rounder. Due to the waterproof elements it doesn’t have a built-in USB dongle or an external mic – but given the capabilities this is allowable. Due in black, blue, purple, it will retail at £129.99.
Next up is the new Kodak Slice touchscreen camera which has the ability to store up to 5,000 pictures in HD resolution. Consumers can easily sort through thousands of pictures by person, place, date, or occasion in order to locate and share a collections with the onboard KODAK SLICE Search Feature and Face Recognition feature. The Slice will retail at £299.99.
Finally, the Kodak Pulse Digital Frame which will retail at £109.99 has a touchscreen-enabled frame and is equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity and a personal e-mail address – so users can easily refresh pictures on their frame.
Kodak further enhances the sharing experience by connecting the frame to photo albums on KODAK Gallery and Facebook sites. The frame automatically refreshes when pictures are uploaded to albums – we don’t know about you but this could end up rather embarrassing….
Release dates are to be confirmed.
