Kodak (JK Imaging) dethrones Samsung with new 65x optical zoom digital camera
Samsung briefly held the "zoom ratio wars" crown earlier in the week with the announcement of their new WB2220F (60x optical zoom), but they didn't hold on to the crown for too long. JK Imaging announced a new 65x optical zoom digital camera under the Kodak brand, it is the new Pixpro AZ651 with a 65x optical zoom lens (24-1560mm eq.) and a starting price of $350. Kodak also announced a few more superzooms, including a 52x and a 42x optical under their AZ-series of Astro Zooms.
