Rochester, N.Y. , August 8 — In the latest addition to its award-winning Easyshare consumer digital photography system, Eastman Kodak Company today announced four new innovative and user-friendly products to the C and V lines of Easyshare Digital Cameras. The Kodak Easyshare V705 Dual Lens Digital Camera – the world's smallest ultra-wide-angle optical zoom digital camera, and the Kodak Easyshare C875 Zoom Digital Camera, with 8.0 MP, 5X all glass Schneider-Kreuznach optical zoom lens, are two impressively designed and unbelievably equipped offerings from Kodak.

“As a leader in the digital camera marketplace, Kodak once again surpasses the competition by designing innovative and powerful ultra-compact cameras, ” said Mary Hadley, General Manager, Digital Still Cameras, Kodak's Consumer Digital Imaging Group . “ Kodak continues to raise the bar by providing picture takers with the tools to create high-quality photos, enhancing the overall digital photography experience.”

Style and Power

The Kodak Easyshare V705 dual lens digital camera allows consumers to capture amazingly wide views with the world's smallest ultra-wide-angle optical zoom digital camera. Strengthening its commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology, Kodak designed the V705 to include Kodak Retina Dual Lens Technology, which touts two 7 MP sensors, anti-blur technology and Kodak Perfect Touch Technology. With the V705, consumers can get closer and see the details with 5X optical zoom range, and automatically adjust its setting when choosing from 22 scenes and three color modes. Picture takers can even capture the most expansive shots in just seconds with panorama stitch mode, capturing up to 180 degrees with only 3 shots.

The powerfully simple video features include the ability to record VGA video (640 x 480) at 30 fps with sound, and convenient on-camera video editing tools offers consumers to trim clips and create prints from video (4, 9 or 16 up), plus view and share single frames.

The V705 will be available for consumers in silver at select retailers, whereas the black and pink versions of the dual lens digital camera will be available exclusively online at The Kodak Store (www.kodak.com). During October, in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Kodak will be donating $25 for every pink V705 sold on The Kodak Store to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Easy-to-Use and Packed with Innovative Features

With 8.0 MP and 5X all glass Schneider-Kreuznach optical zoom lens, the affordable and feature-packed Kodak Easyshare C875 Zoom Digital Camera gets consumers closer to their subject and creates exceptional quality prints up to 76 x 102 cm (30” x 40”).

Viewing these shots is made easier with its large 6.4 cm (2.5”) indoor/outdoor color display featuring a wide viewing angle.

The camera also boasts Kodak Perfect Touch technology for better, brighter pictures. Picture takers can even capture life in motion with TV quality (VGA) video at 30 fps, and create action prints from video (4, 9 or 16 up), plus view and share single fames while using less memory with MPEG-4 compression.
