Kopin Corporation, the leading provider of microdisplays for mobile consumer electronics, announced today that Eastman Kodak Company, one of the world's leading camera makers, has expanded its use of Kopin electronic viewfinders (EVF) by selecting Kopin's CyberEVF 230K-NF module for its new EasyShare Z812 IS digital camera. It is the fourth EasyShare model unveiled using Kopin’s ultra-compact EVF.
"Kodak’s increasing use of our EVF products is a testament to their quality and value,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin president and CEO. “By delivering a superb image quality in a tiny package, Kopin’s EVF helps users of this latest Kodak EasyShare model to take brilliant HD pictures and videos. This marks another milestone in our strategy to make Kopin’s compact modules the EVF of choice among the world’s leading high-zoom digital camera makers.”
The CyberEVF 230K-NF displays brilliant, natural colour images in virtually any light. It ensures that the image seen through the EVF precisely matches the photograph – at any zoom level. For digital camera manufacturers, Kopin's complete EVF solution provides reduced time to market and lower production costs.
The Kodak EasyShare Z812 IS with 8.2Mp is designed for the aspiring photographer who wants an easy-to-use camera that delivers exceptional image quality with every shot. Equipped with the impressive Schneider-Kreuznach 12x optical zoom lens, the Z812 IS captures HD still images and video, and has the ability to extract quality still pictures from videos. The camera’s auto-focus accuracy, Optical Image Stabilization and high ISO (up to 3200) allow consumers to capture brighter, clearer shots in low-light or fast-action situations. It also features Face Detection Technology, which automatically adjusts the camera’s settings – and gives users the option of manually selecting the aperture and shutter speed. The suggested manufacturer's retail price of the Z812 IS camera is US $299 (around £150).
