special recognition by PTPA Media this year
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug 24, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
The KODAK EASYSHARE M580 Digital Camera, featuring Kodak's exclusive
Share Button, has been awarded the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal by
PTPA Media. PTPA Media (Parent Tested, Parent Approved) awards their
industry-renowned seal of approval to products that its parent
evaluators judge to improve the quality of family life and that are
worthy of a parent's recommendation.
"We are honored that Kodak has chosen to have their products tested by
our community of parent volunteers," said Sharon Vinderine, CEO, PTPA
Media Inc. "Being willing to go through the testing process is really a
testament to the quality that Kodak puts into its products. The Seal of
Approval that accompanies these winning products provides a trusted
reference point for families looking for guidance when making purchases
for their families."
The KODAK EASYSHARE M580 Digital Camera makes it simple for consumers to
share their pictures with family and friends. With Kodak's exclusive
Share Button, consumers can tag pictures and videos directly on the
camera for effortless uploading to popular social networking sites
including FACEBOOK, KODAK Gallery, FLICKR, and YOUTUBE. Pictures can
also be tagged to email and to send to any KODAK PULSE Digital Frame.
"We are thrilled to have earned our second parent Seal of Approval with
this award for the KODAK EASYSHARE M580 Digital Camera," said Phil
Scott, Vice President of Marketing, Digital Capture and Devices, Kodak.
"With the Share Button, Kodak is making it easier for consumers to share
and relive life's moments, in three simple steps. We thank PTPA Media
and its parent testers for this latest recognition and recommendation."
