  • 04 May, 2004 11:50

<p>- Simplicity Ideal for “Point-and-Shoot” Photographers; Multiple On-Camera Features Provide Creative Options for More Experienced Picture-Takers</p>
<p>SYDNEY, May 4, 2004 — Kodak today introduced a new addition to its point-and-shoot line of consumer digital cameras, the Kodak EasyShare CX7330 zoom digital camera.</p>
<p>Combining fully automatic point-and-shoot convenience with 3-megapixel resolution and a 3X optical zoom lens, the EasyShare CX7330 digital camera makes taking and sharing high quality pictures one-touch simple.</p>
<p>“The EasyShare CX7330 digital camera combines outstanding picture quality, Kodak’s hallmark one-touch simplicity, and great value for the point-and-shoot digital photographer. It gives busy parents exactly what they need to capture both everyday and special family moments, then share them on the camera’s LCD screen, in an e-mail, or with a KODAK print,” said Mr Steve Morley, general manager, Australia and New Zealand, Digital &amp; Applied Imaging Products, Kodak Digital &amp; Film Imaging Systems Division.</p>
<p>The CX7330 digital camera provides picture takers with 3 MP resolution, a 3X Optical Kodak Retinar aspheric all-glass zoom lens, 3.3X advanced digital zoom, Kodak Color Science technology, multi-zone auto focus, auto-rotation, and 16 MB of internal memory. A press of the CX7330 camera’s exclusive red-jewelled “Share” button allows a person to immediately review and designate pictures for printing and e-mailing on the 1.6-inch indoor/outdoor LCD screen. The screen’s size and bright display make it simple to share pictures with others on the camera itself, even in direct sunlight.</p>
<p>For capturing moving images, the CX7330 camera also features video capture and playback capability. Video length is dependent on available memory; additional memory can be added via the SD card/MultiMediaCard expansion slot.</p>
<p>The CX7330 digital camera will be available in June for a suggested retail price of A$349.</p>
<p>Kodak EasyShare software and docks
The new Kodak EasyShare printer dock (A$299) is the simplest way to create beautiful, borderless Kodak 4 x 6-inch pictures at home without a computer. Available from June, the redesigned, portable printer dock is compatible with all Kodak EasyShare CX/DX 6000/7000 and LS 600/700 series cameras, PICTBRIDGE-enabled cameras from various manufacturers, and most memory card formats (with an optional KODAK 8-in-1 memory card reader).</p>
<p>The dock provides a full camera battery charge in less than 3.5 hours, plus battery reconditioning for improved performance. When connected to a computer, the printer dock also permits rapid, one-touch transfer of digital pictures to a hard drive. Battery recharging and one-touch transfer is also available via the optional EasyShare camera dock (A$99).</p>
<p>Like all EasyShare cameras, both CX models include Kodak EasyShare software for WINDOWS and MACINTOSH systems, providing effortless digital picture transfer, organisation, basic editing, sharing and printing. The software’s exclusive One Touch to Better Pictures feature — which takes advantage of proprietary colour technologies developed by Kodak — helps WINDOWS OS users get vibrant, true-to-life prints from home inkjet printers, while significantly reducing the trial, error and waste usually associated with home photo printing.</p>
<p>The award-winning Kodak EasyShare consumer digital photography system — consisting of cameras, software, printer docks and camera docks, inkjet and thermal papers, and accessories — makes it simple for anyone to take, organise, share and print high quality digital pictures.
