New KODAK EASYSHARE Z612 Digital Camera Allows Enthusiasts to Zoom in on the Action with its 12X Extended Zoom Capabilities

Fast Performance, High-Quality Detailed Long Shots, Steady Videos
Enhance New Z-Series Camera

ROCHESTER, NY, Feb. 17 - Eastman Kodak Company today announced the new KODAK EASYSHARE Z612 zoom digital camera, the latest model in its Z-series line, which helps everyday picture takers get closer, better, and more creative shots.

KODAK EASYSHARE Z-series digital cameras combine fast-performing, point-and-shoot flexibility with the photographic control achieved through a higher optical zoom. The 6-megapixel KODAK EASYSHARE Z612 zoom digital camera is a compact camera boasting a 12X SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON optical zoom lens with Kodak's image stabilization technology for sharp shots and steady videos.

The camera's easy-to-use performance features include a 2.5" display, PASM modes, auto-image enhance, on-camera cropping, histogram and advanced video designed to help aspiring photographers take better pictures with sharper detail.

"The EASYSHARE Z-series cameras offer a vast array of user-friendly features in a compact model with advanced controls that allow users to dive into photography and achieve more satisfying results," said Greg Morrison, digital product marketing manager, Kodak Canada Inc. "In addition to its impressive resolution and 12X optical zoom, the Z612 camera enhances the overall digital photography experience by delivering the natural details, accurate flesh tones, and impressive colour via Kodak's proprietary colour science chip."

The EASYSHARE Z612 camera records TV-quality video, up to 30 frames per second (fps) using advanced MPEG-4 compression. Built-in image stabilization technology reduces on-screen shaking from unintentional hand and camera movement. The camera also offers an optical zoom feature for video including auto focus. And it is simple to select any frame in a video, then save and print it as a "freeze frame" still picture in just seconds.

The KODAK EASYSHARE Z612 zoom digital camera will be available beginning in June 2006 and will retail for CDN$479.95 (MSRP).

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 60 seconds, using the new KODAK EASYSHARE Printer Dock Plus Series 3. The Series 3 printer docks are 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, under typical photo album display conditions.

The line of EASYSHARE 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, Australia and the United Kingdom, according to The
NPD Group and The GfK Group.

The Z-Series cameras include new KODAK EASYSHARE software version 5.2 for WINDOWS and MACINTOSH systems, providing effortless digital picture organization, 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 5.2, which is available for free download from www.kodak.ca, also makes sharing your favourite pictures as simple as possible, automatically placing them in albums on your camera, on your computer, and in your online KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery albums.

The KODAK EASYSHARE digital photography system consists of cameras, snapshot printers, services, docks, software, inkjet and thermal photo papers, and accessories, making taking, organizing, sharing, and printing high quality digital pictures effortless.
