The Kodak EASYSHARE-ONE is the first to integrate 802.11b wireless (WiFi) connectivity into a digital camera that allows people to share and print their images wirelessly. The camera features a 4-megapixel imager, high quality SCHNEIDER- KREUZNACH 3x optical zoom lens, a large 3-inch touchscreen color LCD, the exclusive KODAK Color Science image processing chip and 256 megabytes of memory. The camera's album feature holds up to 1,500 "favorite pictures" for instant display on the LCD with your family and friends.

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 WiFi 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 person's PC-based picture collection, thanks to the 3-inch, high resolution, rotating LCD touch screen and 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.

The EASYSHARE-ONE captures 4-megapixel still images with enough resolution for 8x10- inch and larger prints. Operation is simple with a fully Automatic exposure mode plus 16 pre-programmed Scene modes (portrait, close-up, self-portrait, museum/polite, night portrait, sport, children, snow, beach, party, landscape, flower, backlight, night landscape, text, and fireworks). The user can select the image size, color, black & white or sepia modes as well as adjust the white balance, focus mode, ISO sensitivity, image sharpness and metering mode. The EASYSHARE-ONE can also capture TV-quality VGA resolution (640x480 pixel) video at 24 frames-per-second with sound, plus the ability to share those videos via the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery.

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, you can print your 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. And with the new Kodak Printer Dock Plus Series 3 you can print wirelessly using the camera's WiFi capabilities.
