Photoxels Editor's Choice 2005 Award

Category: Beginner to Serious Amateur

The Kodak EasyShare Z740 Zoom features 5MP resolution for large prints. The Kodak Retinar 10x optical zoom lens allows you to get as close as 12 cm (4.7 in.) to your subject for detailed macro photography as well as bring far away subjects in for a close look. It also features a high-resolution Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) and a large 1.8 in. LCD monitor.

For those who want to go beyond point-and-shoot, the Kodak Z740 features full exposure flexibility, as well as easy-to-use Scene Modes that automate most of the common picture-taking situations. Movies are captured at 640x480 VGA resolution at 13fps.

The Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock Series 3 features one-touch transfer of your pictures from camera to computer; direct printing from camera to printer with or without a computer; and recharging of your camera while it is docked. It allows you to print borderless KODAK 4 x 6-inch pictures in as little as 90 seconds with just one touch.

The combination of the Kodak EasyShare Z740 Zoom and the Printer Dock Series 3 provides a digital photo solution where you have everything you need to take, make and share pictures with family and friends in an easy to use package and at an incredible price.

The Kodak EasyShare Z740 & Printer Dock Series 3 kit will appeal to beginner and serious amateur photographers who desire an easy-to-use camera (with room to grow) and printer with one-touch printing.
