Kodak EasyShare P712
The new Kodak EasyShare P712 is setting a new performance benchmark for the consumer “superzoom” category. Its precision auto-focus system with best-in-class click-to-capture rate, literally faster than the blink of an eye, at less than 1/10th of a second (0.07 seconds), helps photographers get the exact shots they want, whether action on a sports field or children on the playground. Additional features of the Kodak P712 include PASM, custom and extensive preset scene modes; multiple burst modes for action shooting; three-shot in-camera panorama stitching; a live histogram; 25 selectable AF points; custom white balance with selectable compensation; highlight/shadow clipping displays; and RAW/TIFF/JPEG support.
Kodak P712 camera - 7 Megapixels
“When second and third-time digital camera buyers walk into stores this year, they’re searching for models with better performance and more control than point-and-shoots, without sacrificing ease of use. They want pictures that look phenomenal straight out of the camera,” said Carolyn Walsh, Product Sales Director Digital, Eastman Kodak Company. “Our new Kodak P712 camera is specifically designed for these photographers, helping them take stunning pictures that they’ll want to share widely with friends and family.”
Kodak EasyShare P712 digital camera - Optical image stabilizer
The Kodak EasyShare P712 features a 12X (36 - 432 mm equiv.), image-stabilised, f2.8 – f/3.7, Schneider Kreuznach Variogon lens that delivers exquisite detail and sharpness. Its 7.1 Megapixel sensor is paired with legendary Kodak Color Science image processing for spectacular, highly accurate colour - shot after shot. Optical image stabilisation provides a two-stop advantage over non-image stabilised systems for better capturing subjects in low light for both stills and video. It also minimises handheld camera shake at longer focal lengths, which is ideal while photographing sporting events and during everyday picture taking when carrying a stabilising device is impractical.
Kodak P712 megazoom camera - LCD and Video
The Kodak EasyShare P712 camera’s large 2.5 inch, high-resolution LCD and electronic viewfinder simplify framing, reviewing and sharing pictures. Photographers can select pictures for e-mailing or printing with a touch of the exclusive Share button, and even mark them as favourites for automatic uploading to the Kodak EasyShare Gallery in conjunction with included Kodak EasyShare Software version 6. TV-quality, 30 frames-per-second VGA video with sound (MPEG4) is always available on the Kodak P712 camera with the turn of a dial. Convenient on-camera video editing includes functions such as split, cut, merge and trim, plus the ability to create single-frame or multi-frame “storyboard” still pictures.
Kodak P20 Flash - Optional accessory
The hot shoe flash connector of the Kodak P712 and optional Kodak P20 zoom flash (with a suggested retail price of £99.99) provides enhanced, more flexible lighting control, while the included rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers long-lasting power for more picture taking opportunities.
