Kodak Launches Pixpro Smart Lens at CES for iOS and Android
I don’t care for these lens add-ons for phones and tablets but I have to admit I’m intrigued by this one from Kodak. It’s actually two lenses, the SL10 for $199 which features 10x optical zoom and the SL25 for $299 which features 25x optical zoom. They work with both iOS and Android and it appears to be a wireless camera that is controlled via an app, at least I think that’s what it is. Anyway, it looks cool to me and I think it’s something that I might actually want to use…
JK Imaging Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Cameras and Devices, announced today they are debuting the SMART LENS® camera, a brand new category of long-zoom accessories that will catapult mobile photography to the next level in quality, convenience and on the go sharing.
Developed to fit a large void in current smart phone cameras and their limitations, the KODAK PIXPRO SMART LENS® Camera is a simple yet powerful accessory that snaps on to iOS and ANDROID devices and turns your phone into the next generation of long zoom camera. For enhanced usability the SMART LENS Camera is wireless and can be controlled with a free downloadable app.
Photos and videos taken with the KODAK PIXPRO SMART LENS® Camera come with the benefit of longer zoom, improved focus, better clarity and can be easily transferred to your smart phone’s photo stream to be edited and uploaded in a matter of seconds to your favorite social media platform. The SMART LENS® Camera is equipped with a standard micro SD card slot and intuitive settings like built-in sleep mode, to ensure you’re always ready to capture that special moment on the go. Basic features on the SMART LENS® SL10 ($199 MSRP) include 10x optical zoom, 1080p video, 28-280mm wide-angle lens and optical image stabilization (OIS). The SL25 ($299 MSRP) adds even more powerful 25x optical zoom and a 24mm ultra-wide-angle lens. Both models are highly portable and weigh only a few ounces. The KODAK PIXPRO SMART LENS® line will be available in spring 2014.
