The Kodak Easyshare P712 zoom digital camera is setting a new performance benchmark for the consumer "superzoom" category. Its precision auto-focus system with best-in-class click-to-capture rate - literally faster than the blink of an eye, at less than 1/10th of a second (0.07 seconds) - helps photographers get the exact shots they want, whether action on a sports field or children on the playground. The Kodak Easyshare P712 camera features a 12X (36 - 432 mm equiv.), image-stabilized, f2.8 - f/3.7, Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon lens that delivers exquisite detail and sharpness. Its 7.1 megapixel sensor is paired with legendary Kodak Color Science image processing for spectacular, highly accurate color - shot after shot. Optical image stabilization provides a two-stop advantage over non-image stabilized systems for better capturing subjects in low light for both stills and video. It also minimizes handheld camera shake at longer focal lengths, which is ideal while photographing sporting events and during everyday picture taking when carrying a stabilizing device is impractical. The Easyshare P712 camera's large 2.5-inch, high-resolution LCD and electronic viewfinder simplify framing, reviewing and sharing pictures. TV-quality, 30 frames-per-second VGA video with sound (Motion JPEG) is always available on the P712 camera with the turn of a dial. Convenient on-camera video editing includes functions such as split, cut, merge and trim, plus the ability to create single-frame or multi-frame "storyboard" still pictures. As with all Easyshare cameras, the P712 model is compatible with Kodak Easyshare snapshot printers and camera docks, the Imagelink print system, and Pictbridge technology for direct photo output without a computer.
