Kodak has today announced a range of new All-In-One Inkjet printers which promise to provide cheaper home printing with pigment based inks and special paper. Kodak is attempting to turn the current printer / ink model on its head with price controlled printers and cheaper inks, which with the cheapest paper can work out at $0.10 per 4x6 inch print. The printers range in price from $150 to $300 with the top of the range 5500 featuring a scanner, document feeder, fax and LCD display. Inks cost $15 for the color cartridge (for just over 100 4x6 prints) and $10 for the black cartridge (for over 300 pages).

The KAF-10500 has an active area of 27 x 18 mm, a 6.8 µm pixel pitch and two channel output.

Just posted! Our concise review of the Kodak EasyShare Z650. the Z650 replaces the Z740 at the top of the Kodak's affordable super zoom range. The changes over the previous model are fairly modest; the pixel count increases from 5 to 6MP and the lens is now a Schneider Variogon (as opposed to the Z740's Kodak Retinar). The new model also gets a bigger (though lower resolution) LCD screen, a few new scene modes and a live histogram. Find out what we thought after the link...
Kodak's EasyShare digital camera and docking system is celebrating its fifth birthday this month. So along with the announcement of Kodak's new EasyShare V610 dual lens camera comes version 6.0 of its EasyShare software. Version 6.0 comes with a new user interface and a photo card printing feature. Available in May to download for free.
Kodak has today announced the EasyShare V610 dual lens camera. The 6.1 MP compact has the same sleek styling - and dual lens system - as the V570, announced in January. This time Kodak are using two Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon all-glass prism zooms (and two CCDs) to cover a much wider 10x range (equivalent of 38-380mm). The V610 also features a large 2.8-inch LCD, Bluetooth wireless technology and sensitivity up to ISO 800. Looks like an interesting (and much slimmer) alternative to the Panasonic TZ1 - though without the benefit of optical image stabilization.

Both cameras use the Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock for quick and easy printing.
Kodak digital sales made up 54% of total revenue for 2005, marking the first time in the company’s history that digital revenue exceeded film. The news came on the same day that the company reported that total losses for this year could top $1 billion, after the fifth consecutive quarter of losses - due mainly to the restructuring that the shift to digital required. On the positive side, sales of Kodak digital cameras are up.
Just posted! The 8 megapixel P880 offers a fairly unique mix of features, including a wideangle 24-140mm equivalent 5.8x zoom. Throw in raw capture, full photographic control and a 2.5-inch screen and you have what - on paper - looks like a very compelling mix of features. To find out if the P880 lives up to its promise check out the review after the link.
CES 2006: As part of a wide ranging speech at CES by Kodak Chariman and CEO Antonio Perez it was revealed that Kodak will be saying goodbye to their famous yellow-box logo in favour of a simpiler more contemporary design.

CES 2006: Kodak and Lexar Media have introduced a new high performance memory card, designed to capture smooth TV-quality video with 30 fps video capability.
