Digital compacts get personal - Big resolution digital compacts with personalisable settings and accessories launched by Kodak.
Kodak V1003 10Mp compact
Kodak V803 8Mp compact
At the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Kodak introduced two new additions to its award-winning line of KODAK EASYSHARE Consumer Digital Cameras. The KODAK EASYSHARE V1003 Zoom Digital Camera – with 10-megapixel resolution and the KODAK EASYSHARE V803 Zoom Digital Camera – with 8-megapixel resolution, have 3X KODAK RETINAR Aspheric All Glass Optical Zoom Lenses, and come in multiple signature colour choices with fun accessories to match your personal style.
“As consumers look for more ways to expand their picture taking experience, the KODAK EASYSHARE 10- and 8-megapixel Digital Cameras make it fun to personalise the camera look and feel,” said Julian Baust, Country General Manager, Eastman Kodak Company. “Kodak continues to delight consumers by providing new ways to express themselves, enhancing the overall digital photography experience.”
Now, a new menu feature called Maintain Settings stores your preferred settings for flash, white balance, ISO and resolution between uses, saving you time and assuring you have the camera set up your own personal way. With the Favorites feature, you can keep your special pictures on your camera all the time for showing and sharing, without filling up your internal memory.
The KODAK EASYSHARE V1003 and V803 Cameras produce vibrant shots with dynamic picture quality that can be viewed on the large 2.5-inch (6.4 cm) colour LCD screen. The cameras are packed with smart features that make great picture taking incredibly simple, including:
- New high ISO mode up to ISO 1600 for bright pictures when shooting under low light conditions.
- KODAK PERFECT TOUCH Technology for better, brighter pictures automatically. This exclusive KODAK Technology examines each picture to bring out shadow detail and deliver more vibrant colours in the shot.
- 22 scene modes, including simple on-camera stitching for dynamic panorama shots.
- Digital image stabilisation using the anti-blur mode to prevent blurring from subject or hand movement.
- Advanced video mode to record VGA video (640 x 480) with sound at 30 fps; includes trimming and tagging for easy editing and searching.
- Convenient on-camera tools include blurry picture alert, digital red-eye reduction and picture cropping for consistently better shots.
