Designed for value-conscious people making their first foray into digital, the Kodak EasyShare CX6200 digital camera offers all the simplicity of the EasyShare system. Getting great prints -- up to 8 x 10 inches -- is no problem, thanks to 2 MP resolution and 3X continuous digital zoom. The 1.6-inch LCD screen can be used to both preview a shot and instantly review the snapped picture.

A press of the CX6200 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 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 CX6200

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.
