Kodak has extended its digital photography offerings, introducing the new high-definition Zi8 high-definition pocket camcorder, along with two new Easyshare digital cameras. All three are designed to make it easy for everyday camera users to capture important memories and easily share them with their friends and family—and even the world.

“Consumers place high value on their images and video to strengthen and improve relationships, and have consistently relied on Kodak to help them make their personal content a part of their daily lives,” says Kodak’s general manger of digital images and devices John Blake, in a statement.

First up, the new Zi8 pocket digital video camera goes after the market pioneered by Flip video, and enables consumers to record video at 1080p resolution and feature electronic image stabilization to reduce blurring and shakes. The Zi8 also features a 2.5-inch LCD display, can manage 5 megapixel still pictures, and features an external microphone jack, HDMI video output, and s swing-out USB arm for fast connection to PCs for uploading and charging. The Zi8 comes with built-in software so users can easily share photos and videos on Facebook and YouTube, and works with both Windows PCs and Macs. Expect the Zi8 in September in black, raspberry, and aqua for a suggested price of $179.95.

Next up, the Easyshare Z950 digital camera features a 12 megapixel resolution and a 10× optical zoom, along with optical image stabilization and a 3-inch LCD display. The Z950 also features a fast 0.3-second click-to-capture speed for getting those action shows, and a Smart Capture mode that automatically adjusts flash, exposure, and focus for hassle-free photography. The Z950 should be available in August for $279.99.

Finally, the Easyshare M381 features a 12 megapixel resolution with a 5× optical zoom, along with a 3-inch LCD and face detection technology that can handle up to five faces. The M381 also features electronic image stabilization and easy uploading to YouTube or Kodak’s own Kodak Gallery. The M391 should be available in September in light blue, black olive, and wine red for $179.99.
