Kodak EasyShare V530 Reviews

Megapixel has reviewed the Kodak EasyShare V530 and write: “The V530 is compact, light, and simple to use. It is designed to be easily carried around and be available at a moment’s notice. Its controls and features avoid complexity, making it an ideal entry-level camera for those who prefer point and shoot type cameras. And, when its photos are printed, especially at standard sizes such as 4×6 and 5×7, the V530’s images stand out as well-saturated and bright.”

Digital Camera Info have reviewed the Kodak EasyShare V530, the review is extensive and looks at the camera in fine detail. Here’s a excerpt of that review, looking at the Kodak EasyShare V530 camera and it’s modes: The Kodak EasyShare V530 aims to grab a share of the ultra slim market with its trendy colored housings, skinny 0.9-inch profile, and organized layout. The 5 megapixel Kodak EasyShare V530 comes in red, silver, black, and pink – each to appeal to a slightly different audience. All of the cameras come with a green focus assist lamp on the front that proves to be quite annoying during movie recording. This compact model has a branded Schneider-Kreuznach 3x optical zoom lens that doesn’t quite live up to its name. The lens distorts the image in the corners of the frame and has only about five stops in its zoom range of 36-108 mm (equivalent).

The buttons on this Kodak EasyShare look organized, but are deceivingly difficult to handle. The positioning is not ergonomically pleasing so users’ hands are forced into strange poses to change settings. Changing settings shouldn’t be an overly frequent occurrence though because the Kodak EasyShare V530 is very automatically oriented. It has an auto mode, 20 scene modes and a movie mode. The breadth of the scene modes is extensive; the modes cover everything from Text and Children to the more common Portrait and Landscape.
