A closer look at Kodak's Slice touch-screen camera.

The Slice is designed to improve the sharing experience, with several features, including 2GB of internal memory.

The 14-megapixel camera is pure point-and-shoot, and is designed around a 3.5-inch touch-screen display and an internal 5x zoom lens with stabilization. It can record 720p HD-quality movies at 30fps, too.

There are few physical controls on the Slice, with shooting, editing, sharing, and camera setting options accessed through the touch-based menu bar along the top of the screen.

While I initially thought the camera's name came from its design, it actually comes from the special search features. With the capability to store up to 2,000 photos, you need good search to drill down and find what you're looking for. The Slice has that. For example, you can tag up to 20 faces and slice through your collection, pulling up the ones with the person you want.

The other key feature is easily tagging photos to be uploaded to sharing sites or to e-mail addresses you store in the camera. There's no wireless access built in, but instead it uses a very lightweight Kodak app to handle the uploading once the camera is connected to a computer by USB.

These are the only physical controls on the camera: playback, power, shutter release, and zoom.

It does have an internal lens with a 5x zoom, but the other specs are a little disappointing. The widest the camera gets is a 35mm-equivalent 35mm and the widest aperture is just f4.8.

The camera feels well constructed and is slim enough to easily slip in a pocket or small bag.

Again, the camera does have 2GB of internal storage. However, a microSDHC card slot is available for regular use. The built-in storage is primarily for keeping your memories with you. Also, if you have a mobile phone that uses them, you can pop the card in and send your photos off to wherever without having to wait to get back to a computer.
