desg1Aug 24, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Kodak is trying to make a dent in the ever expanding digital camera market and that is why it is trying to cash in on the popularity of the social networking applications. Its latest offering EASYSHARE M590 is a trendy and new digital camera which has a one touch Facebook upload feature. It is very slim and the company is claiming that it is the slimmest camera in the world with a 5X optical zoom. When the camera is connected to a PC the users can load the images to popular applications like Flickr, YouTube and also Facebook. However, a lot of other models also support YouTube capture mode. The Facebook integration is its USP though. The camera has a resolution of 14 MP and features Kodak’s proprietary KODAK Color Science technology.

The video buffs will be impressed with its 720p HD Video recording capability. It is going to be sold at $200 approximately. The new camera with this Facebook upload feature is likely to be lapped up by the fans of the social networking site. However, the camera phones are getting better with time and with them the users can upload photos to Facebook and other web services wirelessly. It is too early to say if it will do the trick for Kodak.

However, Kodak has brought out the camera in attractive hues which means it is targeted at the youngsters who are mostly addicted to services like Facebook. Having a trendy camera with Facebook upload feature may catch their fancy. The image tagging capability of the camera also makes it a photographer’s delight.
