Kodak used Oscar night to stretch the legs of their DC290, using it to shoot stars as they arrived and also the award ceremony. Kodak out to prove you don't have to spend $5,000+ to be a journalist (cough, is this what they were trying to prove??)..

You can check my review of the Kodak DC290 here

Here's the press release:

Last night at the Academy Awards ceremony, Kodak was on hand to capture some of the evening's finest moments. Long Photography photographers from were right in the middle of the action along the famed red carpet, catching all the glamour and finery of the stars' arrivals with KODAK DC290 Zoom Digital Cameras.

...Later, inside the event, we captured the emotion when Kevin Spacey took the Best Leading Actor award -- and much, much more.

All of those pictures were posted to the Kodak.com Web site in near real-time.

Who went with whom? Who was wearing what? What did the winners do when their names were announced? In case you missed the action -- or if you want to relive the evening -- you can check out our pictures at:
