Kodak G610 Printer Dock
To support its camera launches, Kodak today has released the EasyShare G610 photo printer dock. The updated model prints high-quality 4x6 inch photos within a minute, says Kodak, and creates that are both waterproof and laminated to survive a person's entire lifespan. The dock prints directly from any EasyShare camera and charges those models with lithium-ion batteries. It ships in April for $130.
The firm has also released a new line of NiMH Digital Camera Batteries for those cameras that use disposables. The AA- and AAA-sized rechargeables will keep their power for as much as four times longer than others, according to Kodak, and last roughly 300,000 shots. Kodak expects to release packs that include 1-hour and slower value rechargers for $30 and $16 respectively, with AA and AAA battery packs shipping for $14 and $9. All four should be ready by July.
