The UK Kodak Pension Plan (KPP) recently acquired the Kodak Personalised Imaging and Document Imaging businesses from the original owners, Eastman Kodak Company. The new company is being called as Kodak Alaris.
Talking about the new camera, it's selling point happens to be its 36x optical zoom, allowing users to capture far away objects and entities. The lens can also shoot at 24mm for wide angles. Apart form this, it comes with a 16 mega pixel CCD sensor. It comes with a HDR (High Digital Resolution) function, which is a common feature in most mid-range and high-end smartphones.
For the uninitiated, HDR involves taking 3 consecutive pictures, with different automatically selected settings and then merging them to form a bright & vibrant image. It can shot 720p HD video at 30 FPS by using a .mov container. There's a 3-inch LCD if you're not a viewfinder person. It comes with Image Stabilization and uses a Li-On Battery.
