New KODAK EASYSHARE Z7590 and Z730 Digital Cameras Deliver Greater Picture Range via Extended Zoom
Z-Series Designed to Bring Everyday Picture Takers Closer to their Subjects
London, February 20 — Eastman Kodak Company today announced two additions to the new line of KODAK EASYSHARE Z-Series digital cameras, which now features four models with extended optical zoom lenses up to 10X. The KODAK EASYSHARE Z-Series cameras help everyday picture takers get closer, better, more creative shots.
The new KODAK EASYSHARE Z7590 (10X optical zoom, 5 megapixel resolution, (£349.99 RRP) and Z730 (4X optical zoom, 5 megapixel resolution, £199.99 RRP) digital cameras combine fast-performing, point-and-shoot flexibility with the photographic control achieved through extended optical zoom lenses. They join the previously announced EASYSHARE Z740 and Z700 cameras, which are now shipping.
“People are realising that the secret to a great digital picture isn’t just about the number of megapixels in the camera,” said Mary Hadley, director of worldwide digital capture marketing at Kodak. “EASYSHARE Z-Series cameras bring extended zoom capabilities such as more flattering portraits and capturing detail from afar — until now the domain of higher-end digital cameras — to more people.”

The KODAK EASYSHARE Z7590 camera is ideal for people who want to further experiment with photography using a fast performing digital camera that includes both automatic and manual settings. Specifically, the Z7590 model offers a professional quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON 10X optical zoom lens (38 – 380 mm equivalent) for outstanding dynamic range, fine detail and delicate highlights, and it is the first Z-Series camera to feature flash sync connection. Further, the camera is equipped with a live histogram, which enables users to see the exposure of their subject before taking the shot. Additionally, the exclusive KODAK Colour Science chip results in portraits with edge-to-edge sharpness and brightness, rich colour, and highly accurate exposure.
The EASYSHARE Z7590 camera will be available worldwide beginning in May 2005.
KODAK EASYSHARE Z730 zoom digital camera
Designed for “zoom seeking” picture takers, the fast-performing KODAK EASYSHARE Z730 digital camera incorporates advanced features that offer outstanding performance without sacrificing ease of use. The professional quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON 4X optical zoom lens (33-132 mm equivalent) allows greater photography experimentation and more range than with a comparable 3X optical zoom. In addition, a 2.2-inch, high-resolution LCD screen can be used to preview and instantly review shots. Continuous auto-focus delivers rapid click-to-capture (0.2 second), precisely freezing action at a desired moment, while the lithium-ion battery delivers extended shoot times and rapid recharging.
The EASYSHARE Z730 camera will be available worldwide beginning in May 2005.
Making the EASYSHARE System Connection
Z-Series camera owners can quickly print KODAK 4 x 6-inch pictures with just one touch in as little as 90 seconds, using the new KODAK EASYSHARE Printer Dock Series 3. This version is the first to support the new IMAGELINK print system, working with new EASYSHARE cameras and other manufacturers’ compatible cameras.
The Printer Dock Series 3 also transfers pictures to a connected computer, and recharges and reconditions the cameras’ batteries. Pictures made from EASYSHARE printer docks are vibrant, borderless, waterproof, and will last a lifetime.
Only the EASYSHARE line of printer docks makes printing truly one-touch simple, and does not require people to connect a cable between camera and printer. Their convenience, print speed, ease-of-use and phenomenal picture quality have resulted in overwhelming demand from picture takers worldwide, with the line having achieved the number one market position in the United States and the United Kingdom,. Since Q2 2003, Kodak has shipped more than two million EASYSHARE printer docks worldwide.
Kodak has also announced the EASYSHARE Camera Dock Series 3 (May 2005 availability; £49.99 RRP), which provides one-touch picture transfer to a connected computer, video out for television viewing, and battery recharging and reconditioning.
The Z-Series cameras include new KODAK EASYSHARE software version 4.0 for WINDOWS and MACINTOSH systems, providing effortless digital picture organisation, editing, sharing and printing. The exclusive One Touch to Better Pictures feature takes advantage of proprietary colour technologies developed by Kodak to help users get vibrant, true-to-life prints from inkjet printers. Version 4.0 — also available for free download from www.kodak.com — now includes the ability to edit pictures in third-party applications and optional Video CD and DVD burning.
The award-winning KODAK EASYSHARE digital photography system — consisting of cameras, printer docks and camera docks, software, inkjet and thermal photo papers, and accessories — makes taking, organising, sharing, and printing high quality digital pictures effortless.
