On the show floor at PMA 2008: A quick look at the tiny Kodak Z1012 IS megazoom

So what else was there to be found on the show floor today? In addition to the slew of previously announced cameras, I also got a quick hands-on look at Kodak's latest megazoom, the EasyShare Z1012 IS, which was announced on the 29th.

A quick look at the tiny Kodak Z1012 IS megazoom

So what else was there to be found on the show floor today? In addition to the slew of previously announced cameras, I also got a quick hands-on look at Kodak's latest megazoom, the EasyShare Z1012 IS, which was announced on the 29th. The 10-megapixel camera has a 12x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization, ISO up to 3,200, and offers tons of automatic settings as well as a full manual mode. Holding it in my hands, it was smaller than I expected--a truly compact megazoom. The coolest features (besides the diminutive size) are the smart capture mode, which automatically identifies the type of scene and adjusts camera settings (essentially choosing a scene mode for you, based on the scene at hand), and the HD support for both stills and video (which, like the V1073 announced at CES, requires the separately available EasyShare HDTV dock to transmit photos and videos to your TV). The Z1012 IS ships in April for $250.
