Press Release:

Kodak Builds on the Award-Winning Share Button with the New Wi-Fi enabled KODAK EASYSHARE Wireless Camera M750

Just One Button to Instantly Share High Quality Photos Wirelessly At Home or On the Go

London, UK, January 9, 2012 —Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) today announced the next advancement in Wi-Fi sharing of high quality images with the launch of the KODAK EASYSHARE Wireless Camera M750. The built-in Wi-Fi for the 16 MP Wireless Camera means you no longer need to connect to a computer to share your images. Simply connect to a wireless network and sit back while your pictures are sent to your favorite social media destinations via the Share button.

The freedom of this wireless camera lets you share when you are on the go, even if there is no Wi-Fi network available. If you want to instantly show-off that incredible picture, download the free KODAK EASYSHARE Camera App on your ANDROID, APPLE or BLACKBERRY Device and share the photos through FACEBOOK, Email or KODAK Gallery Sites- no hot spot required. 

“The launch of the EASYSHARE Wireless Camera M750 marks the perfect union of the smartphone and digital camera,” said Phil Scott, Vice President of Digital Capture and Accessories. “The two technologies are now married to bring consumers the best experience from capture to share. Socially savvy users no longer have to compromise on image quality, now we can take great pictures and share instantly.”

The KODAK EASYSHARE Wireless Camera M750 also comes with a great array of features. Tap, swipe or drag your photos with ease with the bright 3.0 inch Capacitive Touch Screen. Capture pictures in stunning detail from afar, with the powerful RETINAR HD 5x Zoom Lens that keeps every detail crisp and clear. Never miss the action with the dedicated video record button that enables you to shoot in HD video on the fly. Then backup your images and video effortlessly with wireless back up to your home computer or simply copy your pictures to any compatible mobile Wi-Fi device.

KODAK EASYSHARE Wireless Camera M750 includes Kodak’s Smart Capture which adjusts settings automatically and includes special capture modes and photo effects for taking pictures that express your creativity. 

Available in silver and red for £129.95 MSRP, the EASYSHARE Wireless Camera M750 can be found at major retailers and Kodak.co.uk this spring.

In addition Kodak will also offer four other 2012 KODAK EASYSHARE Cameras to complement the range.  The KODAK EASYSHARE SPORT C135 – a waterproof, dustproof camera that can shoot video and 14 MP pictures up to 10' underwater. It’s insanely small, yet the KODAK EASYSHARE M215 is full of surprises — like the self-portrait mirror that helps you get in to your group shots. Share your moments with the press of a button on the 14MP, 5 x Optical Zoom EASYSHARE M565. There is also the KODAK EASYSHARE Z5120 Camera with its 26X zoom, Optical Image Stabilisation, and 26 mm wide angle lens, bringing all your images closer to perfection.

All of the models have the option of wireless sharing with Eye-Fi Wireless Memory Cards (sold separately). Just press the Share button to wirelessly share pictures or videos.

This is the camera I always waiting for: finally no more cables for uploading and for transfer photos! And it's from Kodak, that for me is guarantee of great pictures! I'm so excited about it and I hope this will not be their latest camera but the first of a new Kodak wave :)

Kodak, just as any camera company, needs to integrate into a growing personal space. Yet the technology one chooses to get there is important. Getting together with telecoms is okay but making a claim 'no need to look for a hotspot to post your pic' tells me Kodak is not on my side. I want to be efficient and there are plenty of (need I say free) hotspots available, even if I am on the move. Kodak should not compete with phones' cameras in the electronic-only picture viewing.
Samsung has a small camera w/ front screen (now w/ wi-fi), ostensibly for framing self-portraits. Yet it is a gateway for making Skype calls, which then goes up with (or against) tablets/laptops. In other words, free wi-fi holds more promise for Kodak because it holds more promise for me.
Certainly Kodak should or could make a breakthru camera, sensor/print/color speaking, even in a niche market -- gotta show off your roots.
I think the M750 is deserving of full DPR review.

kodak knows technologies, since they made sensors for many medium format cameras, but they failed to bring those technologies to the mass. It would be great if they can produce Kodak Medium format camera. It's all history now

Kodak should have done something cool like Fuji and and produced a camera like the X100, Leica X1, Sigma DP1 etc.
They could even have been first to offer a compact with FF ccd an a fixed 28 or 35mm high quality lens. Unfortunately Kodak managed to throw away one of their valuable technologies that might be worth somthing - the sensor-division.
Maybe a restructuring of the management could save the company even though I've my doubt that.

Kodak's value is rarely seen by the consumer anymore, they make the sensor for the Leica M9 and have patents which are worth a fortune however.

they sold off their sensor division to Platinum Equity last month. However, most hollywood films are shot on Kodak film, and not even Red has come close enough to the quality to cause Hollywood to shift... We're talking millions upon millions of feet a film a month.

As unleamy says about the sensor-division is right.
It might also already have been doubts about however Leica was about to go with Kodak yet another time for their coming Leica M10 or finally switch to FF ccds from Sony. It is well known that the M9 lagged behind some other pro grade cameras, at the time, with FF from Nikon and Canon.
Kodak colours is something nice but won't always outweigh the lack of usable high iso - Something which I think that even Olympus realized when them finally switched from Kodak to Panasonic.
Maybe Leica had already made up their decision regarding that for the M10 and even made it clear for Kodak that they had decided to stick to some other manufacturer? Who can say for sure? - We can just speculate about that.

The colour that I got from an older DX6440 from Kodac has still to be matched by any other camera that I have owened, incl. a couple of DSLR's! If only they got everything else in order (and I hope they do) this company would survive, given their background.

The M750 is under $170 and available for preorder at amazon.com with a 3/31/2012 release date. I just might bite. I need a decent, cheap knock around camera.

The last time was with their dual lens cameras (V570, V705, V610) and their performance series (P880), about 6 years ago.

They were also the last Kodak cameras I bought.
