Eastman Kodak Company has released a new 7.1-megapixel digital camera, the Kodak Easyshare P712. It features a 7.1 megapixels (CCD sensor) with 12x optical zoom lens, a 2.5 inch LCD screen with optical image stabilisation, a 3072 x 2304 pixels maximum resoluton, a high-rez electronic viewfinder, 30 frames-per-second VGA video with sound, and basic on-camera video editing. SLRworld writes a review for this camera:
Its 7.1 megapixel sensor is paired with legendary KODAK Color Science image processing for spectacular, highly accurate color — shot after shot. Optical image stabilization provides a two-stop advantage over non-image stabilized systems for better capturing subjects in low light for both stills and video. It also minimizes handheld camera shake at longer focal lengths. The EASYSHARE P712 camera’s large 2.5-inch high-resolution indoor/outdoor color TFT display with adjustable brightness settings and electronic viewfinder simplify framing, reviewing and sharing pictures. TV-quality, 30 frames-per-second VGA video with sound (MPEG4) is always available on the P712 camera with the turn of a dial. As with all Easyshare cameras, the P712 model is compatible with KODAK Easyshare snapshot printers and camera docks.
The Kodak EasyShare P712 measures 108 mm × 84.2 mm × 72 mm and weighs 403 grams (without battery). It will be available worldwide in July 2006 for US$499. Via Newlaunches.
