Kodak is beating everyone to the punch with an early CES announcement of three brand new point-and-shoot cameras for 2011. The midnight release unveils the EasyShare Touch, EasyShare Mini, and EasyShare Sport: three entry-level cameras with a focus on ease of use and social media sharing.
These three EasyShare cameras are accompanied by Kodak's announcement of two new ultracompact camcorders, the Kodak PlayFull and the second generation PlaySport.
The EasyShare Touch is the flagship of this lineup, with a three-inch touchscreen LCD and 14-megapixel sensor. The Touch is accompanied by the credit card-sized EasyShare Mini: a stylish nightlife cam that gives users a small self-portraiture mirror on the front of the camera. The final entry is the EasyShare Sport, which is a waterproof tough camera designed for an active outdoor lifestyle.
All three cameras have Kodak's Share button, which enables three-step sharing to post photos and videos to Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Orkut, and Twitter.
The new EasyShare lineup will debut this spring in a variety of colors and price points. The Touch will be available in silver, black, red, orange, and purple for an MSRP of $149.95. You'll be able to grab the EasyShare Mini in white, blue, purple, red, or black for an MSRP of $99.95. The EasyShare Sport will come in white, gray, yellow, red, and blue for an MSRP of $79.95.
