Eastman Kodak Co. has today announced two new digital camera models for the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Kodak EasyShare V803 and V1003 are essentially identical with the exception of pricing and sensor resolution - eight and ten megapixels respectively. Both cameras feature a Kodak Retinar-branded 3x optical zoom lens, 2.5" LCD display (but no optical viewfinder), a high ISO mode that offers a maximum sensitivity of ISO 1600 equivalent, and a whopping 22 scene modes. User-friendly functions in the cameras include in-camera red-eye removal, a blurry picture warning, and a new "Maintain Settings" menu that lets the user store their preferred settings such as flash, white balance, ISO and resolution for use each time the camera is powered on.

The Kodak EasyShare V803 will reach market this February priced at $199.95, and the EasyShare V1003 will follow in March priced at $249.95.
