Kodak quietly unveils its latest compact
Without saying a word, Kodak has listed a new compact camera on its website: the 10.2Mp C180.
Kodak's C180 compact: 10.2Mp sensor and YouTube support
The AA battery-based snapper has a 2.4in screen and is capable of both a 3x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom. ISO sensitivity tops out at 1250.
As with most modern compacts, the C180 sports face detection, blur reduction and a selection of pre-set scene modes, such as a setting for capturing late-night images.
It’s nice to see that you’ll be able to watch your still images back on the camera’s screen using a slideshow setting. On-screen image editing features also let you crop, rotate and text-tag pictures.
Video capture is possible too, with easy upload onto YouTube also supported. Snaps and movies are stored on SD memory cards.
Kodak’s C180 will be available from May in a red, pink or black body. A UK price hasn’t been snapped yet, but its US price is set at $120 (£83/€91). ®
