Manchester Center, VT- September 13th, 2011 - Digital
Wish and Kodak have teamed up to create educator-only discounts on high
definition video camera bundles, bringing more visual learning projects
to classrooms across America. Digital Wish has packaged together the
most popular camera models with the most-requested classroom accessories
for significantly less than the manufacturer's suggested retail price
of each product. Each KODAK HD video camera is bundled with a Lithium
Ion rechargeable battery, a USB/ AC power adapter, a deluxe neoprene
camera case, a 8GB SD card for capturing footage and photos, AV cables,
ARCSOFT MEDIA IMPRESSIONS Software for editing pictures and videos, and a
one year warranty for all of the items. As an added bonus, an extra
cable has been included for viewing footage on any HDMI-capable
television. Even without the cameras, the accessory kits alone would
cost over $125 if each item was purchased separately at typical retail
There are three video camera bundles to choose from -- the simple but
brilliant KODAK PLAYFULL Video Camera, the rugged, waterproof KODAK
PLAYSPORT Zx3 Video Camera, and the touch-sensitive KODAK PLAYTOUCH
Video Camera. These pocket-sized HD video cameras are sure to be a big
hit in the classroom. Digital Wish's specially-priced education bundles
will ensure that every classroom is ready to start working on exciting
video projects right away!
All three Kodak cameras shoot beautiful 1080p high definition video and
take five megapixel still photos. Easy to use, built- in special effects
are ideal for creative classroom projects. Add a stylized look to any
video taken with the KODAK PLAYTOUCH or KODAK PLAYFULL Video Cameras,
including black and white, sepia, high saturation, and a 1970's film
look. The different effects will add flair to projects across all
subjects, from sepia toned videos for historical reenactments to
recreating famous laboratory experiments with the 1970's film filter.

"We encounter so many visual learners in the 21st century classroom, and
video can be a real game-changer for these students," said Heather
Chirtea, founder and executive director of Digital Wish, "We have worked
with a lot of disengaged students who suddenly thrive when video is
introduced into the curriculum. Digital Wish is proud to work with Kodak
to bring these powerful cameras to classrooms at a huge discount that
will allow teachers to access more technology on their limited budgets."
David E. Capodicasa, Kodak's Director of Market and Business Development,

for students. Kodak is delighted to partner on this initiative and we
look forward to bringing more programs like this to educational
institutions in the near future through our partnership with Digital
