Form Meets Function with New KODAK ULTRA Compact Single Use Camera
New Design Provides Stylish Single Use Camera to Take Great Pictures, Anytime, Anywhere
London, April 3rd, 2007 – The newest “must have” in any bag this season, whether it be a purse, backpack, gym bag or satchel, is the new KODAK ULTRA Compact Single Use Camera. With a simple, clean and modern design and silver-coloured body, consumers can feel confident pulling this camera out of their bag, and looking stylish while never missing a shot, even when a more expensive camera isn’t available. This improved design, combined with the KODAK EKTANAR Lens and Kodak’s 800-speed film, deliver the same high definition pictures with unbeatable clarity of any 800-speed single use camera that consumers have come to expect from KODAK ULTRA Compact Cameras.
“The new ULTRA Compact Camera is an ideal complement to a digital picture-taking experience,” said Julian Baust, Chairman & Managing Director, Kodak Limited. “With its sleek new design, it provides an alternative that’s as attractive as it is functional. Easy-to-use, stylish and reliable, consumers can pull it out on the slopes, at a formal gathering, or at a children’s birthday party and capture great pictures.”
Consumers believe that single use cameras represent a great alternative to expensive cameras to capture quality images. While many consumers own expensive cameras, they still turn to single use cameras as an alternative. Reasons cited by consumers include:
o More expensive camera not available
o Full memory card or dead battery
o Worry about exposing expensive cameras to the elements, whether those elements are snow, sand, or rain
o Worry about young children damaging a more expensive camera
The new ULTRA Compact Camera is now available for consumers to purchase in Boots stores for £9.99.
