Kodak EasyShare LS443 Zoom digital camera announced - The flagship model in Kodak's 2002 EasyShare portfolio. The EasyShare camera combines form and function with its sleek, ultra-stylish design, high-performance lens and 4.0 megapixel resolution
Kodak have announced the LS443 Zoom Digital Camera, the flagship model in Kodak's 2002 EasyShare portfolio. The EasyShare camera combines form and function with its sleek, ultra-stylish design, high-performance lens and 4.0 Megapixel (MP) resolution.
Kodak have teamed up with Schneider-Kreuznach, the German optical company, that produces some of the world's highest-performance professional lenses, and a leader in lens technology and design for 89 years. Together, the companies developed the new Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon lens used by the LS443. The precision engineered 3X optical zoom lens, coupled with Kodak's proprietary colour science technology, ensures LS443 camera users get stunning pictures - from edge to edge - every time.
The LS443 is the latest addition to Kodak's award-winning EasyShare digital photography system. In addition to the Kodak EasyShare software, which simplifies editing, filing, emailing and printing, the LS443 is supplied with a new special edition dock.
The LS443 delivers crispness and colour in virtually every shot. The camera's built-in proprietary Kodak colour science, the result of decades of Kodak research and development, ensures colour accuracy in every picture.
Additional features include:
- The recently introduced 1.8' Indoor/Outdoor LCD screen, allowing users to easily preview and review their shots even in direct sunlight. The screen's non-glare coating combined with reflective display technology, ensures viewing in direct sunlight while maintaining exceptional viewing quality.
- An on-camera 'Share' button makes printing, e-mailing and filing easier than ever before.
- A special edition dock for one-touch picture transfer and fast recharging of the high performance Li-Ion rechargeable battery, ensuring that the camera is always ready to shoot, capture and print at the touch of a button.
- A feature dial is used to access five scene modes - close-up, landscape, sport, night and movie - giving consumers the controls to take the perfect picture in any situation.
- Other creative controls include a menu of three colour modes; a burst mode for high -speed sequence shooting; advanced auto focus options for low light and off -center subjects.
- The LS443 captures life in motion with a continuous video and playback option with built-in speaker.
Easily accessed features on the LS443 guide consumers effortlessly from photo capture and sharing through printing. The LS443's automatic picture rotation feature ensures that pictures always appear right side up on the camera, computer or TV screen. With the special 'camera always ready' feature, consumers can snap a picture even when the camera is not in the 'capture' setting. The LS443 also includes 16MB of internal memory, which means consumers don't even need a memory card to start shooting right away. A MultiMediaCard or Secure Digital memory card inserted into the camera's expansion slot increases picture-taking capacity.
As with all of the digital cameras in the Kodak EasyShare portfolio, the LS443 is packed with the best image technology and built with ease and simplicity in mind so that picture takers are just one step from stunning photo prints. Using the Kodak EasyShare software, consumers have even more options to help them print, share, edit and organize their pictures. The EasyShare system, including the EasyShare software, aims to make getting prints virtually effortless, giving consumers the option to print at home using Kodak's proprietary One Touch to Better Pictures feature with Kodak's extensive line of inkjet paper products; from home by uploading to either the EasyShare print service or another online photofinisher; in or at retail using Kodak digitally-enabled kiosks or over the counter.
