Human Lab – M530 Digital Camera

The Kodak Easyshare M530 Digital Camera was introduced at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show and hit the market in February. This line of cameras promises ease of use for consumers.

Phil Scott, Vice President of Marketing, Digital Capture and Devices at Kodak said, “In a world where people are sharing online more than ever before, Kodak wants to make it as simple as possible. You simply press the Kodak Share Button to tag the pictures on the camera and they automatically email or upload to your favorite sharing sites when you connect to a computer. We designed our new digital cameras to give consumers an easier and more intuitive way to share and relive their moments when they want, where they want and how they want.”
