NEW SINGLE-USE CAMERA FROM KODAK BRINGS THE ACTION CLOSER

 NEW SINGLE-USE CAMERA FROM
 KODAK BRINGS THE ACTION CLOSER
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The Eastman Kodak Co. (NYSE: EK) today announced a new single-use 35 mm camera with a telephoto lens and high-speed film. The Kodak Fun Saver telefoto 35 camera will be available in retail outlets by March, 1992.
 The fifth in the series of Kodak Fun Saver 35 single-use cameras, the telefoto 35 camera enables picture-takers to get close-up color images of distant subjects. Because of the telephoto lens, the film image is more than twice the size of one from a conventional single-use camera. Loaded with a 24-exposure roll of high-speed Kodak Gold 1600 film, the camera is intended for picture-taking in daylight and brightly lit areas.
 "This camera helps picture-takers capture photos of faraway subjects in ballparks and in daytime outdoor activities," said Robert C. Sharp, Kodak vice president and general manager, U.S. marketing and sales, Consumer Imaging. "Its innovative telephoto lens helps bring the action closer, and its sensitive ISO 1600 film captures images with vivid colors."
 Kodak will begin shipping Fun Saver telefoto 35 cameras to dealers in early February. Cameras will be on retailers' shelves by March 1.
 Designed for focus-free convenience, the Fun Saver telefoto 35 camera enables picture-takers to capture photos from as close as 15 feet. Using an 85 mm fixed focus telephoto lens, the camera brings subjects 2.4 times "closer" than the Kodak Fun Saver 35 camera's standard lens.
 "Events illuminated by performance lighting, such as nighttime ball games or hockey games are perfect opportunities for the telefoto 35 camera," Sharp said. "The camera's small size, four ounce weight, and handy carry strap make it easy to bring to nearly any picture-taking event, in place of a full-sized camera and telephoto lens."
 The telefoto camera's pre-loaded roll of Kodak Gold 1600 film eliminates film loading, rewinding or unloading. After taking 24 exposures, consumers bring the camera to a photofinisher, who removes and processes the film and can return the camera components to Kodak for recycling. Consumers receive their finished color prints and negatives from the photofinisher.
 Instructions on the package encourage processing labs to return used Kodak Fun Saver 35 single-use cameras to Kodak for recycling. As part of a Kodak environmental program, these cameras are returned, disassembled and recycled. Since launching the recycling project in May 1990, more than 500,000 pounds of plastic and metal have been diverted from the solid waste stream.
 For more information, consumers may write to the Kodak Information Center, Rochester, NY, 14650, or may call the Center at 800-242-2424.
