The Kodak EasyShare C142 digital camera is based around the combination of a 10 megapixel image sensor, and a Kodak-branded 3x optical zoom lens with 35mm-equivalent focal lengths ranging from a rather tight 34mm wide angle to a 102mm telephoto. Unfortunately, the Kodak C142 doesn't include true mechanical image stabilization, relying on software blur reduction instead. Kodak's spec sheets don't list the aperture range for the lens.
The Kodak EasyShare C142 doesn't include an optical viewfinder of any kind, instead selecting a 2.5" LCD display. Power comes courtesy of AA batteries, and Kodak includes disposable alkalines in the product bundle. Information on storage media - built-in or removable - is absent from Kodak's spec sheets.
Kodak's EasyShare C142 includes the company's face detection technology, but not the face recognition function that would allow the camera to recognize and tag specific individuals. Other features of the C142 include VGA (640 x 480 pixel) standard-definition video capture (framerate and compression type unstated), ISO sensitivity to 1,600 max., and one-button upload to YouTube, Facebook, Flickr and Kodak Gallery .
The Kodak EasyShare C142 is priced at around $90. Availability had not been stated at press time.
