Kodak has launched a new 12Mega pixel pocket monster with a range of highend features.
The Z1275 features 5x optical zoom and can record video in 1,280x720 in QuickTime MPEG4 format. It also has 64MB of built in memory, although at 4,000x3,000 resolution, we doubt you'll get more than a couple of pictures at full resolution. The LCD display measures 2.5-inches, but has a rater poor resolution of 115k pixel. The ISO level can be set from 100 to 3,200 and the shutter speed works between 8 and 1/2000 of a second.
Rather interestingly Kodak now only doesn't support SD and MMC, but also Sony Memory Stick Duo cards with the Z1275. The camera is powered by a pair of AA batteries, although no battery life time was given. It weighs 161g and measures 89.5 x 64.5 x 31.6mm. But best of all, it will be available for a mere US$249 when it becomes available later this year.
