Kodak EasyShare One Reviews

Digital Camera Info has a first look review of the Kodak EasyShare-One Wi-Fi ready Digital Camera and writes - 'Designed for digital camera users and nostalgic imaging enthusiasts, the EasyShare-One may be the first true staple of digital still capabilities. While the debate continues to linger as far as analogue and digital image quality goes, there is no competition as far as options are concerned. With 256MB of internal memory, touch-screen interface and a wireless transmitter, the EasyShare-One dwarfs the potential of analogue cameras and may lead prior digital models into that same shadow of novelty status.'

infoSync World previews the Kodak EasyShare One and writes - 'A 4 Megapixel camera, the EasyShare One has its share of mid-range features as well as a few surprises thrown in. Its 3x optical zoom lens is fairly standard, but the ability to add Wi-Fi is all but. 802.11b allows for sharing pictures with a PC, or alternatively uploading them directly to Kodak's previously-named Ofoto service, now known as Kodak EasyShare Gallery, or alternatively direct output to a Wi-Fi enabled EasyShare photo printer.'

Digital Photography Now has a first look review of the Kodak EasyShare One digital camera and writes - 'There are going to be some who suggest the camera is a gimmick, or that four megapixels is mean and inadequate. After having used an EasyShare One for a few hours, I'm loathed to describe the camera as gimmicky � wireless connection to the Web makes Web-based sharing a cinch and you get instant photo emailing capability too. There are some rough edges to the user interface, but in the end it hangs together and actually works. Perhaps more of a concern is the bottom line cost of public hotspot services, because I can see myself using this facility a great deal in conjunction with a camera like the EasyShare One.'

Design Technica has an excellent review of the Kodak EasyShare One where they are very impressed by the 4 megapixel WiFi digital camera and give it a high rating of 9 out of 10. They write - 'the EasyShare One is the start of something very new in consumer digital imaging with Nikon and Canon following in its footsteps. And we�re sure others will follow in the years ahead. Kodak is to be highly praised for trying to cut through the Wi-Fi gobbledegook and making the camera as simple to use as possible. Although I would love to see some improvements on the camera side and a lower price, Kodak is to be commended for taking this wireless leap.'

CNET Reviews the Kodak EasyShare One and writes - 'Although it took nine months from announcement to shipment, the Kodak EasyShare One arrived with its promised three-inch touch-screen LCD and Wi-Fi transfer capabilities. With them, the camera opens up genuinely original possibilities for travelers, business people, and government agencies that need instant photo sharing. But all is not perfect in Kodak's wireless utopia. While the EasyShare One is great for sharing photos, it's not so great at shooting them. The user interface, optimized for maximum simplicity, can be slow and annoying for anyone unwilling to settle for complete automation. The poor image quality further compounds our disappointment.'

PC Mag reviews the Kodak EasyShare-One and writes - 'The LCD is gorgeous, but Wi-Fi is the main selling point. Unlike the Nikon Coolpix P1, which has a wireless antenna permanently attached to its side, the EasyShare-One uses an 802.11b wireless card that comes with the camera and will work on any 802.11b network. Pop the card into a slot on the top of the camera, switch to picture review mode, and the card begins searching for wireless networks. Select the appropriate one, and you're ready to transfer photos wirelessly. The process is quite intuitive�almost instinctive�thanks to an excellent graphical user interface that's among the best we've seen.'

DCRP reviews the Kodak EasyShare One and writes - 'The biggest selling point for the EasyShare One is its wireless abilities and in that area the camera delivers. While the interface is clunky (and entering WEP keys is a major pain), the camera makes it quite easy to share photos via e-mail or prints. Photos and movies can also be transferred wirelessly to your Mac or PC. You an also send photos and movies to Kodak's EasyShare Gallery, where you can view your online galleries (as well as those of your friends) and you can delete photos and albums if you'd like. Printing photos wirelessly is very cool, especially if you're using Kodak's optional Printer Dock.'

Steves Digicams reviews the Kodak Easyshare One and writes - 'The Kodak EasyShare-One is "one cool digital camera" that offers more sharing capabilities than any other cameras on the market. Not only can you capture awesome 4-megapixel prints, but you can email them or print them out for friends an family, without having to go near a computer; just make sure you have the optional EasyShare Printer Dock Plus Series 3 ( about $179). With an MSRP of $599 the ES-One is considerably more expensive than other 4-megapixel cameras. However when you consider its non-typical features like the huge 3.0-inch touchscreen LCD and Wi-Fi capabilities, we feel it offers a good value, especially for your favorite "techno geek."'

APCMag reivews the Kodak EasyShare One and writes - 'By and large Kodak has succeeded with the EasyShare One. People with home wireless networks will benefit from the flexibility that Wi-Fi brings. Those who love to travel should find the Wi-Fi functions open new doors for sharing travel memories with friends, as long as you don�t stray far from Telstra hotspots.'

Kodak Redefines the Digital Camera; New EASYSHARE-ONE Camera Puts Sharing First

First-of-its-Kind Innovation Expands Picture-Sharing Possibilities with Storage for 1,500 Pictures; Wireless Connections for Instant Picture E-Mail and Printing

Eastman Kodak Company today unveiled KODAK EASYSHARE-ONE, a new digital camera designed as much for sharing pictures as for taking them. Kodak is showing the innovative camera for the first time at the 2005 International Consumer Electronics Show.

The EASYSHARE-ONE camera gives people extraordinary control over how and when they share pictures, whether on the LCD screen, online, or as prints. The camera is truly first-of-a-kind, with the ability to hold up to 1,500 favorite pictures for instant display on its crystal-clear, high-resolution, 3-inch touch screen display; direct picture e-mailing and online album viewing via a wireless connection to KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery (formerly Ofoto); and the capability to take high quality still pictures and video. No other digital camera gives people such extensive ability to take, organize, share and print their pictures.

The EASYSHARE-ONE redefines what is possible with a digital camera. Were changing the digital photography experience from point-and-shoot to point-and-share, said Greg Westbrook, vice president, Eastman Kodak Company. We have combined the power of digital picture taking, intelligent organization, the freedom of wireless, and sophisticated picture sharing into a single innovative product.

This is so much more than just another camera introduction. Its about giving people the ability to instantly share a picture while theyre still in the moment ? whether with a person by their side, or a person across the globe ? simply, quickly, and elegantly.

Kodak designed the EASYSHARE-ONE camera specifically for sharing. It incorporates multiple benefits that avid picture sharers could only dream of until now, including:

Online and e-mail picture sharing without a computer, using a direct, wireless connection to the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery service (formerly known as Ofoto). By connecting to the Gallery through a compatible home network or public hotspot*, people can upload the pictures and videos for near instantaneous electronic sharing with friends around the world.

On-the-spot sharing of up to 1,500 favorite pictures, synchronized with a persons PC-based picture collection, thanks to a huge, 3-inch, high resolution, rotating LCD touch screen thats protected when not in use, plus a generous 256 megabytes of internal memory. In addition, when connected wirelessly to the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery, EASYSHARE-ONE owners can also view thousands more of their pictures stored online, including albums shared by their friends and family.

Significantly enhanced ease-of-use for picture sharing and taking, including the ability to create on-camera albums in which to store pictures, intuitive menu options with touch screen selection, automatic organization of pictures by date taken, and even richer, graphical scene modes to help get the best possible picture in a variety of outdoor and indoor environments.

One-touch, wireless picture printing when used with the KODAK EASYSHARE Printer Dock Plus (optional KODAK Wi-Fi card required).

Pictures with professional-quality color and sharpness, with the use of a renowned SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON 3X optical zoom lens (36 108 mm equivalent), a 4-megapixel sensor, and the exclusive KODAK Color Science image processing chip.

TV-quality video taking and sharing, with built-in 30 frames-per-second motion and sound recording, plus the ability to share those videos via the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery.

Premium post-sale service from Kodak, providing EASYSHARE-ONE model owners with priority inquiry handling, assistance with the cameras wireless setup and operation, and other benefits made available to only these customers.

The EASYSHARE-ONE camera will begin reaching select retailers this June, with a manufacturers suggested retail price of US$599. The optional KODAK Wi-Fi card will be available separately.

Like all new EASYSHARE digital cameras, the EASYSHARE-ONE is compatible with the new IMAGELINK print system. By placing the camera on an EASYSHARE printer dock or other photo printers compatible with the IMAGELINK system, people can print their pictures in as little as 90 seconds at the touch of a button. And, with the EASYSHARE printer docks, people have the built-in convenience of rapid camera battery recharging and one-touch picture transfer to a connected computer.

The award-winning KODAK EASYSHARE consumer digital photography system consisting of cameras, software, printer docks and camera docks, inkjet and thermal papers, and accessories makes it simple for anyone to take, organize, share, and print high quality digital pictures. In the J.D. Power and Associates 2004 Digital Camera Satisfaction StudySM evaluating performance, connectivity, cost and appearance, KODAK EASYSHARE cameras in the US$200-399 and US$400-599 price ranges ranked Highest in Customer Satisfaction.
