    Hands-on with the Kodak Z1085 IS

    [photopress:102_0223.JPG,full,pp_image] Kodak announced a number of entry- to mid-level point and shoots at CES and the Z1085 IS is one of the higher-end monsters. It is just now shipping and I got the chance to sit down with some Kodak folks to discuss what makes this model better than the rest. Basically, the camera performs considerably more post-processing on the pictures than competitors. Read More

    Kodak, Vivitar not giving up on film; new SLR on the way


    Digital has almost completely replaced film in the casual set and is making inroads among professionals and artists, but that doesn’t mean film is being completely forgotten. Kodak and Vivitar have not forgotten their roots, and are creating a new film camera aimed at universities teaching “traditional photography.” They say it’ll be similar to the V3000.

  • Kodak has a 3-inch OLED photoframe with digital TV

    [photopress:ELTV_Front_s.jpg,full,center]The one thing I’ve had against digital photo frames is that they’re showy. They have to be backlit, which makes them stand out, and looks odd. OLEDs promise to make more realistic looking photo frames, and this cute little 3-inch model from Kodak is one of the first out of the chute. At only 8mm wide, the ELiTe Vision KTEL-30W has a 3-inch… Read More

    Kodak, Slide help you win brownie points all year long with the lady friend

    One of the biggest selling points for social networks, at least for me, is the ability to upload and see others photos. It’s pretty much the only way I stay in touch with friends in different parts of the country and world. I know there are other photo hosting sites that do some slide show stuff that you can embed onto your MySpace or Facebook page, but for those of you who use… Read More

  • Kodak is shrinking its cameraphone sensors

    Kodak is shrinking its cameraphone sensors


    There are already some phones that take some decent, high-megapixel pictures; Sony-Ericsson comes to mind as a company at the forefront of mobile phone cams. Kodak’s new sensor is a 1.4 micron-per-pixel CMOS, which saves space over the 1.75 micron-per-pixel sensors that are common now but keeps the photo quality. For tiny cameras like these, however, I think megapixels are the least… Read More

Kodak’s latest slew of cameras have smart capture technology that… Read More

    CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Kodak EasyShare V1253

    The promise of the Kodak’s EasyShare V1253 is immense. As the world’s first compact cam with a video capture function that can pull high-def (that’s 720p, and no I’m not counting those Sanyo products), this could represent a rare case of digital convergence that carves out an entirely new niche.

    Kodak's Picture Kiosk G4 More Fun Than It Should Be

    Until yesterday, I hadn’t used a photo kiosk since the year 2000. At that time all the kiosk had was a flatbed scanner and maybe a floppy and/or CD-ROM, but I don’t remember (dude, it was seven years ago. Back off!). I was given the opportunity to test out the newest kiosk from Kodak yesterday—the Kodak Picture Kiosk G4—and while most of the things it does I can do at… Read More

    Kodak Camera Sensor May Eliminate Flash

    Kodak today unveiled its biggest load of crap by announcing that it has developed a way to eliminate flash use on a camera. Thanks to new imaging technology in its new camera sensors, you may not even need a flash the next time you go to take that award-losing night-shot. Only problem is, no matter how good your imaging sensor is, if it’s dark out, it’s dark out. Your pictures… Read More

    Motorola and Kodak Working On 5-Megapixel Cameraphone

    Kodak and Motorola are currently at work on a 5-megapixel cameraphone using a Kodak-developed CMOS sensor. This was confirmed yesterday when Kodak President Antonio Perez jumped up on a conference table and shouted “Five megapixels in your face and up your butt, baby!” Of course this is just speculation. Other than the 5-megapixel CMOS sensor, Perez didn’t mention much… Read More

    Kodak EasyShare 5300: Don't Believe The Hype

    Though new to the world of desktop printing, Kodak still has an illustrious past with some excellent products. But its reputation could be going down the drain thanks to some recent claims the photo-centric company made. Over at Pop Photo, the boys put the Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-in-one to the test to see if could truly crank out 180 borderless color photos. It looks like Kodak got a… Read More

  • WTF? ISO 8000 on Kodak's EasyShare Z885


    When megapixels stopped wooing consumers to cameras, the manufacturers apparently switched to hyping another spec: ISO. The letters stand for the International Organization for Standardization and back in the film days the number that followed ISO referred to the film speed or the amount of light needed to expose the film. There’s math involved that we won’t go into here but… Read More

  • Kodak's Newest Long Zoom: EasyShare Z712 IS

    PMA 2007 is the first time Kodak is publicly showing its newest 12X optical zoom camera, the $299.95 7.1-megapixel EasyShare Z712 IS. Probably its most impressive feature is the click-to-capture time of .26 seconds. And while I didn’t time it, it was incredibly fast despite the showfloor unit being a pre-production model.

    Kodak Easyshare Printers: What's All the Fuss?

    I went to Kodak’s Easyshare Printer launch and walked in just as a group of nerds began playing Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet. Yes, real live nerds. Don’t ask me why. I’m as confused as you. See, they made the launch into an extended Saturday Night Live sketch and they ran the entire thing in NBC studios. Feel free to watch some highlights after the jump, but it’s… Read More

    Hooray for Tuesday! It’s now the morning of January 9 and I’m headed to a 9 a.m. meeting with Samsung Mobile, but my cab takes the Strip to get to the LVCC making me late. (In case you missed the previous entries, here are Jan. 7 and Jan. 8, parts one and two.) Despite the continued accolades heaped upon Samsung’s phones by others, I’ve always been
    a bit sour on them. Read More
