The newest addition to Kodak's EasyShare line of cameras was announced today: meet the 6 megapixel Kodak EasyShare V610. Like its immediate predecessor, the V570, the V610 has two lenses on it. Both are Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon all-glass lenses, each with 6 megapixel sensors. The wider angle lens has a 38-114 mm range and the other a 130-380mm range; combined they make the V610 capable of 10x optical zoom, albeit with a transition instead of what you would see with just one lens. Each lens has a prism so that lens adjustment can be done internally, instead of protruding from the camera body.
Kodak's wifi-enabled EasyShare-One was their first camera with wireless features, and the EasyShare follows in its footsteps, only with Bluetooth 2.0 this time, enabling users to transmit their photos to mobile phones, computers PDAs, printers and Kodak photo kiosks. The V610 starts shipping May 8th with a list price of $449.95.
