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.

Sony's new mega-capacity Cyber-shot® DSC-T2 digital camera is an
8-megapixel model that features 4GB of internal memory and can store up to 40,000
VGA-quality photos or 1,000 8 megapixel pictures, eliminating the need to manage
multiple media cards. The camera's album folder makes it easy to organize
and access thousands of photos in-camera. Images can be viewed in chronological
order and displayed in a helpful calendar view. By installing the bundled Picture
Motion Browser software, you can also view images by events like birthdays or
Sunday BBQs.



The "sharemark" folder can store those photos and videos deemed
worthy for sharing beyond the camera onto the web. The T2 model is pre-loaded
with Sony PMB Portable software, a user-friendly application that automatically
runs when the device is connected to a compatible PC via the supplied USB cable.
The software lets you publish photos and videos directly to popular web sharing
sites, such as Crackle, Flickr, Photobucket, Shutterfly and YouTube.



The camera has a new look with a compact silver body; black LCD frame; and a
sliding lens cover available in blue, green, pink, white or black. The Sony
LCS-TWE carrying case is also available in the same colors to match the camera.
Its touch-panel LCD screen replaces small buttons with on-screen icons and a
user-friendly interface to make camera operation fast and simple. You can touch
the screen to select the subject you want to focus on (shooting mode) and where
you want to zoom in (playback mode).



Sony's distinctive "smile shutter" function makes capturing
informal portraits and family snapshots effortless. The function automatically
detects and captures a person smiling without the need to press the shutter.
If there are several people in the frame, you can select the primary subject
for the camera to watch by touching the screen. A sequence of up to six smiling
shots can be taken without the need to manually press the shutter.



Combined with such technologies as face detection, optical image stabilization
and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the camera is equipped to capture life-like
holiday memories.



The T2 camera can be connected to the TV set via HD component cable or an HD
cradle (both sold separately). Equipped with a built-in slide show function,
the camera lets you view photos, complete with dynamic transitions choreographed
to your choice of programmed music clips or by adding your own.



The Cyber-shot DSC-T2 digital camera will ship in December for about $350. Additional
accessories will include batteries, travel chargers, sports packs and cases.
All can be purchased online at sonystyle.com, at Sony Style® retail stores
(www.sonystyle.com/retail),
and at authorized regional dealers.
