Mobile imaging from Motorola and Kodak - Kodak collaborate with major mobile phone manufacturer Motorola to launch the 5Mp Motozine ZN5 camera phone.
Motorola, a leader in wireless communications, and Kodak, the world’s foremost imaging innovator, today announced Motozine ZN5, the first product combining world-class innovation from both companies. The Motozine ZN5 combines a high-quality phone and camera experience to help content-craving consumers seize inspiration and share the content they create and love with the world.
Unveiled today in Beijing at a gallery-inspired event, Motozine ZN5 delivers an easy and immersive mobile imaging experience. ZN5 is the first mobile phone to combine Motorola’s ModeShift Technology and Kodak Imaging Technology. Together, they redefine the quality, convenience and connectivity of mobile imaging devices. With Kodak EasyShare Software and easy access to Kodak Gallery or other web sharing sites, pictures are easily moved off the device, allowing consumers to print, share and enjoy their favourite photos whenever they want.
“Today’s creative consumers not only want to be the photographer, but also the retoucher, the exhibitor and the critic,” said Jeremy Dale, corporate vice president, mobile devices marketing, Motorola, Inc. “The Motozine ZN5 lets them be all the things they want to be.”
Built to shoot
ZN5 puts image capture first, with a high-resolution landscape screen and one of the fastest click-to-click times available. To launch the camera, simply slide open the Kodak lens cover to transform the phone into an ultra-fast 5Mp camera with auto-focus, a Xenon flash, 4Gb of optional external memory and optimised settings for low-light environments.
Built-in Kodak Imaging Technology ensures that every picture taken with ZN5 looks its best. When Kodak Imaging Technology is combined with Kodak Perfect Touch Technology, images become brighter and more vivid on the spot. Multiple capture modes, like multi-shot and panorama, which automatically stitches together continuous shots taken on the horizon line into a single, extended image, makes taking photos fun.
“Kodak Imaging Technology combines Kodak’s unparalleled experience in imaging science with easy connectivity to the company’s vast portfolio of products and services,” said John Blake, general manager digital capture and imaging devices group, vice president Eastman Kodak Company. “We have redefined the quality, convenience and connectivity of mobile imaging devices. We have worked closely with Motorola to create a device that not only delivers Kodak-quality pictures, but allows consumers to explore a wide range of options for sharing their photos with friends and family around the world.”
Built to share
With one touch, photos can be viewed right from the home screen; no menus, no searching. This multimedia device provides a fun, quick and easy way to share favourite photos. Pictures can be uploaded via Gallery Link in one simple click and instantly shared to the Kodak Gallery to be viewed, stored and shared with friends and family. ShoZu can be used to upload photos to a variety of social networking sites. ZN5 comes with Kodak EasyShare Software, the world’s most used photo software, making it easy to organize, edit, share, store and find mobile pictures. Consumers can transfer pictures to a computer via USB, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth wireless technology and print wirelessly on Bluetooth-compatible Kodak All-in-One Printers and at Kodak Picture Kiosks.
Built to talk
In phone mode, ZN5 features Motorola’s patented CrystalTalk technology to help callers hear and be heard, even in noisy environments. With dual compatibility for GSM and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), users can connect in more areas around the world and enjoy high-speed wireless connections to surf the Web via a full HTML browser. To complete the communications experience, ZN5 also supports SMS, MMS, IM and personal e-mail.
