Red dot award|
“The red dot award for product design is one of the most significant awards in Europe, and only the best receive this recognition,” said Kodak’s Paul W. Porter, Director, Corporate Design and Usability. “In an extremely crowded market segment, the EasyShare V1003 design creates instant impact at retail as well as in users’ hands.” Announced in January at the Consumer Electronics Show, the EasyShare V1003 is a stylish, 10-megapixel compact digital camera. The camera shares its sleek, rounded-edge design with the eight-megapixel EasyShare V803 camera. Both models feature digital image stabilization, a 2.5-inch LCD screen, and a high ISO 1600 mode for shooting in low-light conditions. Finished in nine shimmering colors, the EasyShare V1003 and V803 will be available in April.
Kodak EasyShare Cameras
Last year, three Kodak EasyShare Cameras - the Kodak V570, the P880, and EasyShare-ONE - earned red dot awards. Other recipients of red dot recognition have included Apple’s iPod Nano digital media players, the Audi A6 sedan, and the Bose Wave music system.
Design Award ceremony
The award ceremony will take place on June 25 in the Aalto Theatre in Essen, Germany. Following the ceremony, the EasyShare V1003 camera will be presented with the other award-winning products in a special exhibition. From June 26 to July 23, the camera will be exhibited in the red dot design museum, the largest exhibition of contemporary design worldwide, for one year. The museum is also located in Essen, Germany.
