Kodak's PixPro SL25 camera module offers a 25x optical zoom, 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, and 24 mm wide-angle lens in a truly compact package that pairs with your iOS or Android smartphone. Clip it on, and the phone becomes the viewfinder. The camera also works separately from your phone, making selfies and group shots easy. The PixPro SL25 takes both pictures and HD video, and its optical image stabilization ensures a steady hand. The PixPro SL25 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
