Kodak Makes Sharing Pictures and Videos One-Button Simple

Four New EASYSHARE Digital Cameras introduced at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show

TORONTO, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - Kodak Canada today unveiled the newest additions to its EASYSHARE Digital Camera portfolio. The new cameras are designed to make sharing pictures and videos to sites like Facebook, KODAK Gallery, Flickr and YouTube - or to an e-mail address - as simple as pressing one button on the camera. Equipped with a range of impressive features from Smart Capture and Face Recognition, to HD photo and video capture, the latest EASYSHARE Digital Cameras transform the "KODAK Moment" from a picture taking experience to a picture and video sharing experience thanks to the Kodak Share Button.

Kodak has improved its innovative on-camera tagging capability to make sharing as simple and personal as possible. The Share Button now allows consumers to tag pictures directly on the camera for effortless uploading to popular sharing sites including Facebook, KODAK Gallery, Flickr, and YouTube. Pictures can also be tagged to email or to send directly to the new KODAK PULSE Digital Frame.

"In a world where people are sharing online more than ever before, Kodak wants to make it as simple as possible. You simply press the Kodak Share Button to tag the pictures on the camera and they automatically email or upload to your favorite sharing sites when you connect to a computer," said Phil Scott, Vice President of Marketing, Digital Capture and Devices, Kodak. "We designed our new digital cameras to give consumers an easier and more intuitive way to share and relive their moments when they want, where they want and how they want."
