While Kodak’s trendy Slice and rugged Playsport overshadowed many of the company’s other photo announcements at CES 2010, consumers looking for a good deal might want to divert some attention to the four new cameras in the value-minded M Series. The flagship M580 offers a 3.0-inch screen, 14-megapixel sensor, 8x optical zoom, HD video capability and built-in HDMI for $199.99. The low-end M530 shoots 12-megapixel stills with 3x zoom and a 2.7-inch LCD, for $129.99, while the M575 and M550 fill in the feature and price gaps in between.
