The Kodak EasyShare DX6440 zoom digital camera provides stunning image quality thanks to a number of innovative features. It incorporates a professional quality Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 4X optical zoom lens, an exclusive high-speed, low-light precision auto-focus system, new Kodak Color Science image processing algorithms, and 4 megapixel (MP) resolution that results in sharp, striking prints up to 20 x 30 inches.

The camera's programmable aperture and shutter priorities lend a significant degree of advanced functionality to the more accomplished photographer, yet its pre-programmed sport, night, portrait, landscape, close-up and automatic modes -- plus a new automatic fill flash for backlit scenes -- provide point-and-shoot simplicity.

A press of the DX6440 camera's red-jeweled "Share" button allows a person to immediately select printing, e-mailing, and mark as favorite options for each picture, and on-camera sharing is made simple with a 1.8-inch, high-resolution LCD screen. In addition, the camera's new album feature, when used in conjunction with Kodak EasyShare software v3.0, allows categorization of pictures right on the camera.

Kodak EasyShare DX6440 Zoom

The optional Kodak EasyShare 6000 camera dock addresses two of the biggest objections to digital cameras: easy connection and battery charging.

Once the camera is placed in the dock, pictures are automatically uploaded to the computer and the dock recharges the camera's battery pack. The system also includes software that allows users to connect to the Internet to e-mail or print their pictures. EasyShare makes picture sharing as easy as picture taking: one-button simple.
