This is the beginning of mainstream mobile high definition. Imagine your point and shoot digital camera being able to display images in high definition. It’s here:

Kodak today announced three new EASYSHARE digital cameras along with an HDTV-capable EASYSHARE Dock. The V1253 and V1233 share 12 megapixel sensors and 3x SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH lenses with the V1253 getting a larger 3.1″ screen versus the V1233’s 2.5″. Both shoot 720p video and 16:9 stills and feature face-detection and digital image-stabilization. The Z812 IS meanwhile has optical image-stabilization to go with its 8 megapixels and 12x zoom range. Kodaks new HDTV Dock explains itself really. The cameras will be available from September 2007 with the dock following a month later in October.[Press Release]

UPDATED: I have one for evaluation purposes. Proceed here for a first look at the V1253 HD camera.
