Once again, does anyone still buy Kodak cameras? Anyway, the first of these is the <strong>Kodak Easyshare Touch</strong>, which is yet another touchscreen-based camera. The notable feature has to be price: US$150 gets you a camera with a 5x zoom lens that starts at 28mm equivalent, a 14 megapixel sensor, 3" capacitive touchscreen, 720p video recording and HDMI output. The <strong>Easyshare Mini</strong> features a 3x zoom lens that starts at an odd 29mm equivalent with a 10 megapixel sensor, a front mirror for self portraits, all in a credit card-sized camera for US$100. Then there is the <strong>Easytouch Sport</strong>, which sounds a bargain at US$80 for a waterproof, dustproof camera, but note the 12 megapixel shooter has a fixed lens with no zoom.</p><p>The two camcorders featured are the <strong>Easyshare Playfull</strong> and <strong>Easyshare Playsport</strong>. The former is a sleek device that offers 1080p recording and 5 megapixel stills for US$150. The latter is similar but is waterproof and dustproof and is at US$180. No word on availability for any of the cameras. More photos of the cameras at the link.</p>
