Kodak Pixpro AZ521: Featuring A 16.38MP Sensor, 52X Optical Zoom and Full HD Video Recording Support, under 15K
Kodak has recently launched the Pixpro AZ521 that relies on the exceptional zooming capabilities. Tagged as an Astro Zoom camera, the Pixpro AZ521 allows one to blend in a lot of creativity with the wide angle lens. The shutter speed looks better than the contemporaries and here is what this snapper has to offer in terms of specifications:
The Pixpro AZ521 packs in a 16.38MP image sensor that clicks like a charm. The BSI CMOS sensor is quite a powerful addition, paired along with f/2.8-5.6 as the lens aperture. The 52X optical zooming limit is the show-stealer, boasting of the equivalent limit of 24-1248mm. Skinned on top of this enviable platter is the Optical Image Stabilization that keeps the blurry shots at bay, due to the occasional shakes. What looks good is the minimum focus of 1cm, suited towards the macro shots which require wider angles. The beefed up specs sheet has a place for the auto mode that allows even an amateur to click great pictures with ease. The featured PSAM modes offer greater control while the panorama has several scene based alternatives, packed along. Kodak is proud to present a world of digital filter with the Pixpro AZ521, including partial, color, vivid and sepia. One can combine up to 3 shots with the latest HDR mode. The Pixpro AZ521 offers an extended lens range of 4.3mm-223.60mm besides the digital zooming limit of up to 4X.
