Eastman Kodak Co. next month will roll out a point-and-shoot digital camera powered by its new 5Mpixel KAC-05011 CMOS image sensor, the company said in a press release. The EasyShare C513, set to retail for less than $99, is equipped with a 3x optical zoom lens and a 2.4-inch indoor/outdoor LCD screen. Its other features include a digital image stabilizer for reduced blur, as well as an on-camera editing tool.

"The C513 provides consumers true value through easy-to-use and intuitive technology at an affordable price, thanks to the efficiencies that Kodak's CMOS technology has brought to camera design," said John Blake, general manager of Kodak's digital capture and devices unit. "Traditionally, CMOS has allowed for lower cost camera design but was not able to provide top image quality. Kodak has changed that dynamic with the introduction of a digital camera at a remarkably affordable price without compromising image quality or camera function."

Adds Chris McNiffe, general manager of Kodak's image sensor solutions group, "Today's announcement validates our continued progress to become a leading mass-market supplier of next-generation CMOS image sensors."
