Heading Kodak?s four new releases is the Z612, which includes a 12x optical Schneider-Kreuznach lens.

The 6MP camera includes a 2.5in LCD and captures 30fps movies utilising MPEG-4 compression. Image-stabilisation technology reduces the effect of camera shake that can cause blurring.

Alongside 16 scene modes, the Z612 offers: manual, aperture priority and shutter priority modes.

Kodak?s colour science chip promises: sharp portraits, accurate skin tones and exposures, and rich colours. Effects such as auto-image enhance and cropping can also be applied from within the camera.

Pictures can be stored on a removable SD/MMC or on the 27Mb internal memory, other features include: a live histogram; five colour modes; first and last burst modes and a Share button for tagging pictures for print.

Hitting the shops in May, the Z612 will retail for £299.99.

Incorporating a 6MP CCD, the style-led V603 includes a 3x optical Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon lens and 2.5in LCD.

Available in April for £299.99 the V603 includes Kodak Perfect Touch technology along with a selection of scene and colour modes, including panorama. It can also capture 30fps movies with MPEG-4 compression and image stabilisation technology.

    I have had a Kodak Easyshare camera for a number of years and I have always been really pleased with the video quality. So when I saw this new model I decided to treat myself. However, anyone thinking of buying it should be warned that the sound quality is very, very poor on this camera. It will not pick up any sound that is more than a few feet away and on playback it is very indistinct. I definitely wouldn’t advise anyone to buy it.
