New Kodak PIXPRO AZ361 camera showcased

Last year Kodak announced their phase out and cessation of all their cameras. The company struggled to maintain market share and sales, competiting against not only Canon and Nikon, but the rise in quality of smartphone cameras.

They were involved however in a licensing deal with JK Imaging, a Los Angeles company. This deal means that JK Imaging can use the Kodak brand name on a raft of new cameras, released to the public.

The first PIXPRO camera is called the Astro Zoom AZ361. It is the first of a series of long zooms from the new company with other cameras showing under ‘coming soon’ on the company website.

This new camera features a 16 megapixel sensor with up to 3,200 ISO sensitivity. It also utilises a 9 point autofocus system with an ashperic HD 36x wide angle optical zoom lens comprised of 16 elements in 14 groups. The focal length is quite staggering – a range of 24mm to 864mm.

This zoom lens (called Astro Zoom) has optical image stabilisation to help take better shots at higher zoom ranges.

The camera is powered by a 1100 mAh Li-ion battery and it can also record 720p video at 30fps with mono audio. There are HDMI and USB ports for connectivity to computers and televisions. At the rear is a 3 inch 460,000 dot LCD display and a flash module is available at the top.

You can buy it now in America for $229 from their website here.

Kitguru says: Seems like a high value for money camera, but can it compete in such a competitive sector?

    When will there be downloadable software and manuals available. I bought the Pixpro AZ361 never thinking that the software would not already be available via a download but I can find none. I received the software on disc and the manual, but my brand new pc does not have a disc drive -like many newer models. Am going to return it if the software is not available online.

    There is no charger and the battery can only be purchased from Kodak…I have this camera and I have already experienced these problems….
    So I purchased another battery from Kodak (for about 22 or 23 dollars after shipping added in) and was told they are working on a charger maybe available next year…
    Also the usb adapter cord is extremely short….I will have to purchase another,,,,
    It is a very nice camera but forcing customers to buy exclusively made battery….no charger….and short cable…has made me a little leary of Kodak…
