Kodak Phone Allows One Button Sharing

Nowadays most, if not all, of your photos are eventually destined to arrive on one social network or another. Facebook, Flickr and services that allow you to post photo’s to Twitter are great ways to share your pictures with the world. Now Kodak is making sharing even easier, since they have included a share button on their new camera.

Brad McCarty has the story over on The Next Web about the new Kodak M590. The new Share button is its biggest defining feature. The way that it works is that you take pictures with the camera, connect the camera to the computer and then hit the share button, which will send the images to the social network of your choice (which you set up in the preferences).

Other features of this new phone include facial recognition software, built in image stabilization, HD picture and video capabilities and Kodak’s Smart Capture technology. The press release also boasts that it is the world’s thinnest 5X optical zoom digital camera.

However, this small size brings problems, as the card uses either a Micro SD or Micro SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. My laptop, printer, Wii console and digital picture frame all use regular sized SD cards, meaning that consumers will have to use an additional SD adaptor card to view their images through some devices.

Overall, this new phone looks to support a feature which is the next step in the evolution of cameras. Next I’d like to see a WiFi enabled camera, so I can get home, select all my pictures and put them all on Facebook without having to connect to my computer.
