Today, JK Imaging Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Cameras and Devices, announced its first full line of KODAK PIXPRO branded digital cameras available to consumers this year. Building on over 120 years of Kodak’s long-standing legacy, the new KODAK PIXPRO line continues to provide some of the most advanced long-zoom technology and easy to use features available, answering the need to preserve life’s special occasions and memories for generations to come.

The new KODAK PIXPRO line will offer savvy consumers a variety of feature-rich, long- zoom cameras at highly attractive price points. Focusing on the popular and expanding bridge camera category, KODAK PIXPRO Astro Zoom Camera models are aimed at a wide range of photo enthusiasts looking to invest in a more robust camera than traditional point and shoot models. The Astro Zoom offers cutting-edge technology with 25x to 52x optical zoom while offering consumers a far less expensive option to an entry-level DSLR style camera. In addition to offering some of the most powerful mega- zoom lenses available, the cameras boast 24 mm wide-angle lenses and a host of manual settings and features for customizing camera settings and exploring the art of photography.

The new KODAK PIXPRO Astro Zoom Camera line is centered on the flagship AZ521. This model offers a powerful 52x optical zoom for under $300 (MSRP $299.99), in addition to a 24 mm wide-angle lens; 1080p HD Video; 3.0” 460K LCD; optical image stabilization (OIS) and rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The balance of Astro Zoom models offer a range of affordable price points, including the AZ251 (25x), AZ361 (36x), AZ362 (36x CMOS), AZ501 (50x) and AZ522 (52x CMOS with Electronic View Finder), priced respectively from $179.99 - $349.99 (MSRP).

In addition to the Astro Zoom bridge category, the KODAK PIXPRO line will include two waterproof 1080p HD video devices for consumers who want to capture all of life’s adventures in pristine clarity. The compact, waterproof KODAK PIXPRO SPZ1 Digital Camcorder ($139.99 MSRP) and KODAK PIXPRO SP1 Digital Action Camera ($169.99 - $199.99 MSRP) answer the need for rugged, all weather, go anywhere camcorders for extreme sports enthusiasts to vacationers taking in the scenery from their beach towels and sand.

The KODAK PIXPRO Friendly Zoom line of point-and-shoot digital cameras is also available with the entry level FZ41, FZ51 and FZ151 for customers who still want an affordable, quality, point-and-shoot compact camera ranging from $89.99 - $129.99 (MSRP).

As the long-zoom digital camera demand continues to grow, JK Imaging, Ltd. is continuing to drive innovation and value, providing consumers with the technology and products that help them capture and preserve life’s most precious memories. The KODAK PIXPRO Camera line is a testament to continuing to engage and spark people of all ages to share their creative impulse, capture memories for a lifetime and tell their story.
