Kodak EasyShare Z915: 10MP snapper in grown-up casing

While it may look semi-pro or even hybrid, in actual fact Kodak's EasyShare Z915 is a basic point-and-shoot in a serious suit.  The 10-megapixel camera has a 10x optical zoom with image stabilization, and Kodak have paired it with their Smart Capture auto-scene technology.

Smart Capture is basically an automated version of traditional "scene" settings, adjusting for subject speed and lighting; it's coupled to Kodak Perfect Touch, which processes the capture in-camera to enhance highlight and shadow areas.  Round the back there's a 2.5-inch indoor/outdoor display.

The Kodak EasyShare Z915 will be available in red, blue, black and gray, and is compatible with SDHC memory cards.  It uses standard AA batteries, and will have an MRSP of $199.95 when it goes on sale in April 2009.
