New Kodak EasyShare DX6340 Zoom Digital Camera Combines Advanced User Performance, Ease of Use and Value

The Kodak EasyShare DX6340 zoom digital camera is designed and priced ideally for photographers who want to capture and share photos while enjoying a full range of advanced creative features. The camera has a professional quality Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 4X optical zoom lens, which when combined with the large maximum aperture of f2.2 allows the camera to capture exceptionally sharp pictures even in extremely low light. In addition, the camera features an all-new high-speed precision auto-focus system, which allows focus lock in almost complete darkness. The system also provides exceptionally fast focus lock and has a flash range of almost 20 feet - performance rarely seen in cameras at this price level.

With the stylish 3.1 megapixel (MP) DX6340 - the smallest 4X optical zoom camera on the market today - consumers can choose between simple point-and-shoot modes or from a host of advanced user modes including aperture and shutter priority. Print quality, up to 11"x14", shows exceptional performance when compared to most competitors in the same product class in internal Kodak benchmark testing. The DX6340 will debut in May at a suggested retail price of $329.
