Kodak has announced they are to “phase out” digital capture devices, including digital cameras, digital camcorders (like FLIP) and digital photo frames. They had some nice bridge / ultra zoom cameras such as the Kodak Easyshare Z980, and Z990 Max and we’d expect the price of them to be dropping or on sale as retailers try to clear dead stock.

Kodak has announced a whole bunch of new cameras, seven if you count the dual camcorder / camera, the Playfull Zi12.
