Kodak EasyShare CX6230 Zoom digital camera announced - A simple £150, 2 million pixel point-and-shoot camera
"Kodak continues to provide digital camera newcomers with everything they need for enjoyable, uncomplicated picture-taking," said James McConnell, Regional Business General Manager EAMER, of Kodak's Digital & Applied Imaging operation. "The CX6230 camera is designed for everyday picture-taking and sharing. For instance, you can take pictures at your son's birthday party and share them via e-mail that same afternoon with friends and family who couldn't attend."
When using the camera at any event, such as a football game or a family barbecue, the 1.5-inch display screen makes it easy to preview and review pictures. In addition to its 2 megapixel resolution, the camera provides a 3X optical Kodak Retinar all-glass aspherical zoom lens, 3.3X continuous digital zoom and auto-focus for crisp prints suitable for framing. Eight picture modes including night, close-up, landscape, black and white and sepia are easily accessed, making it simple to shoot in various situations, whether taking pictures of friends on the dance floor or snapping panoramic vistas while on holiday. The camera also incorporates Kodak Colour Science to produce realistic, outstanding pictures even in difficult lighting conditions. This allows people to focus more on why they are taking the picture, rather than how they are taking the picture.
The Kodak EasyShare system helps people share their digital pictures in a snap. A press of the CX6230 camera's "Share" button allows a person to immediately select photos for later printing and e-mailing. Additional features include a thumb control for easy selection of intuitive menu options and the ability to record video clips with audio. The camera's new album feature, when used in conjunction with Kodak EasyShare software version 3, allows organisation of pictures right on the camera.
Anyone who takes pictures with the CX6230 camera turned on its side will appreciate the automatic picture rotation feature, which makes pictures appear right side up on the camera LCD, computer screen or television. In addition, the camera is always ready to snap a picture, reducing the chances of not getting that perfect shot. It comes with 16 MB of internal memory and people can expand their picture-taking capacity with MultiMedia Cards or SD Cards via the camera's memory expansion slot. The Kodak EasyShare CX6230 zoom digital camera will be available world-wide beginning this September.
People can also easily transfer their pictures to a connected computer with just one touch using the optional Kodak EasyShare camera dock 6000 (£59.99). The dock also provides a full Ni-MH battery charge for the camera in less than three hours. CX6230 digital camera owners can also receive all the benefits of a dock, plus water-resistant Kodak 4 x 6-inch pictures in as little as 90 seconds, when using the Kodak EasyShare printer dock 6000 (£199.99). Both docks are now available.
Like the entire range of EasyShare cameras, the CX6230 includes Kodak EasyShare
software for Windows and Macintosh systems, providing effortless digital picture
transfer, organisation, editing, e-mailing, sharing and printing. The software's
exclusive One Touch to Better Pictures feature - which takes advantage of proprietary
colour technologies developed by Kodak
- helps Windows OS users get vibrant, true-to-life prints from home inkjet printers, while reducing the trial, error and waste usually associated with home photo printing.
The award-winning Kodak EasyShare digital photography system - consisting of cameras, software, docks and printer docks, inkjet and thermal papers and accessories - makes it simple for anyone to take, organise, share, and print high quality digital pictures.
