Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has begun shipping its innovative, highly anticipated
EASYSHARE-ONE zoom digital camera to retailers. Initial customer availability
is expected within the coming days, dependent on individual retailer and store
stocking schedules. Kodak is working with the world's leading wireless
hotspot companies to make sharing pictures across town, across the country,
or across the globe as easy and convenient as possible. When visiting a hotspot,
EASYSHARE-ONE camera users can effortlessly send pictures with personal messages
via e-mail, upload pictures to the EASYSHARE Gallery, and view and share existing
Gallery albums -- all without a computer.



EASYSHARE-ONE camera purchasers receive a complimentary, camera-specific trial
service in conjunction with major hotspot providers. Current preferred service
providers include T-Mobile USA, with more than 6,000 T-Mobile HotSpot locations
across the United States; T-Mobile International, with over 5,000 hotspot locations
in Germany (in conjunction with T-Com) and more than 800 hotspot locations in
the United Kingdom; and Telstra, with over 850 Telstra Wireless Hotspot locations
in Australia.



Kodak is also working with other providers to expand broadband hotspot coverage
in Europe and Asia, enhancing the thousands of public freespots available in
venues such as airports, parks, business centers, and municipalities. Kodak
designed the EASYSHARE-ONE model (US$599 MSRP, including the KODAK WI-FI Card)
specifically for sharing, moving the camera experience from "point-and-shoot"
to "point-and-share."

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has achieved another breakthrough in imaging technology
innovation with the introduction of the world's first 50 million pixel CCD
image sensor for professional photography. At 50 million pixels, or megapixels,
the sensor captures digital images with unprecedented resolution and detail. For
instance, with a 50 megapixel camera, in an aerial photo of a field 1-½
miles across, you could detect an object about the size of a small notebook computer
(1 foot by 1 foot).



What's more, the KODAK KAF-50100 Image Sensor features a newly designed
pixel that is smaller in size than the pixel used in current products for this
professional market. This new pixel also reduces "click-to-capture"
time for improved camera response, lowers power consumption for improved battery
life, and improves color fidelity without compromising on the benefits to be enjoyed
from larger pixel sizes.



"Professional photographers need to capture ever-increasing image detail
with higher camera performance, and that to drives us to develop new technologies
and products to serve this important market," said Michael Miller, manager
of Kodak's CCD Image Sensor Business, part of the company's Image
Sensor Solutions group. "Kodak image sensors have been known as the professional
imaging standard for years, and today's announcement reaffirms our dedication
to provide industry-leading image sensors that give professional photographers
a real competitive advantage."



The new Kodak sensor is the first to utilize the company's new KODAK TRUESENSE
6.0 micron Full Frame CCD Technology Platform, which increases both the resolution
and camera performance available to photographers. Based on a newly designed 6.0
micron pixel, the platform provides increased data throughput for faster frame
rate, a reduced "click to capture" time for improved camera response,
lower power consumption for improved battery life, and improved color fidelity,
while still retaining key performance parameters available from the larger, 6.8
micron pixel used in current products. With an 8176 x 6132 pixel array, the 50
million pixel sensor provides the highest resolution available in the popular
48 mm x 36 mm optical format used in medium format photography.



The KAF-50100 is the latest addition to Kodak's family of full-frame CCD
image sensors for the professional photography market. Engineering grade devices
of the KAF-50100 are currently available, with volume production planned for Q4,
2008.


For additional information regarding this technology, please contact Image Sensor
Solutions, Eastman Kodak Company at (585) 722-4385 or by email at imagers@kodak.com.

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has announced improved versions of its Kodak Professional
Portra 400NC and 400VC films.



The new films offer:

· Finer Grain: Extended use of antenna dye technology
enables PORTRA 400NC and 400VC films to deliver finer grain than ever before.

emulsion overcoat specially designed for scanners, PORTRA 400 films reproduce

While film news here will be scant, Kodak did introduce two new color negative
films, actually updates on their professional Portra emulsions in the ISO 100
and 400 speeds. There are four in all, with two being NC ("natural color")
and two being VC ("vivid color.") The retouching layer has been eliminated
from the back side of the film, making them eminently more scannable. Kodak says
that it has incorporated all their latest research into these films making them
finer grain, sharper and with better color and dynamic range than films in the
past. True, if there's one thing film has over digital it is the ability
to handle a wider exposure range, especially in the highlight values.

Eastman Kodak Company has introduced an array of new products and services--from
self-serve kiosks and digital capture solutions to professional photo services--at
the photokina show in Germany. Here's a summary of the news, details of
which, on some, will follow later.



New KODAK EASYSHARE Z710 Zoom Digital Camera combines advanced photographic features
with point-and-shoot simplicity. With a 7.1 megapixel image sensor and 10X optical
zoom, the Z710 model makes it simple to zoom and capture crisp shots that can
make high-quality prints up to 30 x 40 inches (76 x 102 cm).



New KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Printer 350 connects to camera phones for high-quality
prints. Using BLUETOOTH wireless technology, the Photo Printer 350 prints 4 x
6 photos directly from BLUETOOTH technology-enabled devices.



Enhanced KODAK PROFESSIONAL PORTRA color negative films underscore Kodak's
ongoing support of the professional photography market. The recently released
160VC, 160NC, 400VC and 400NC films in the PORTRA film family produce finer grain,
spectacular skin tones and improved scanning performance for greater enlargement
capability. (A report on these films will be in the December issue of Shutterbug.)




New KODAK KAF-10500 Image Sensor--developed specifically for the LEICA M8
digital camera--continues Kodak's legacy of offering high performance
imaging devices that result in low noise, high sensitivity and wide dynamic range.




New KODAK batteries for digital cameras maximize speed, performance and battery
life, resulting in an increase in the number of pictures consumers can take between
battery charges.
