Social media is the buzzword, with easy one-button tagging of pictures to be later sent to Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, e-mail and Kodak’s own Gallery. Note that there is no Wi-Fi built into the cameras; the photos are simply tagged or marked for the appropriate social site. When you do connect camera to computer, the pictures are then automatically uploaded to the tagged site or sent to the specified email address (assuming you have already set the appropriate login settings in the EasyShare software). This potentially saves you one extra step of doing the transfer or emailing yourself. One interesting feature is that you can also tag a picture to be uploaded to the new Kodak PULSE digital frame, so family and friends can quickly see the new pictures you took.
These are point-and-shoot models, with lots of color choices, priced from US $130 to $200 MSRP beginning in April 2010.
