KODAK EASYSHARE V570 Digital Camera

KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera revealed at the CES.

Kicking off this week’s 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Eastman Kodak Company today introduced the world’s first dual-lens digital still camera, the KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera. Using proprietary KODAK Retina Dual Lens technology, the elegant KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera wraps an ultra-wide angle lens and an optical zoom lens into a small, sleek package less than an inch thin.

The innovative KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera’s ultra-wide angle lens coupled with its optical zoom lens produces a total 5X optical zoom range, providing more options to help today’s picture takers capture the perfect shot – group photos, scenic landscapes, dramatic portraits, and close-ups. No other consumer digital camera offers such a wide angle of view, nor the unique, sophisticated design of this model, whose all-glass, stacked Schenider-Kreuznach Varigon prism lenses never extend from theKODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera’s body.

said Mary Hadley, general manager of digital cameras for Kodak’s Consumer Digital Imaging Group.

Capturing high quality photos with maximum ease of use are at the top of people’s lists when buying a new digital camera. By delivering on these needs in a completely new way, the KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera pushes the boundaries of innovative design for ultra-compact cameras.

said Mary Hadley, general manager of digital cameras for Kodak’s Consumer Digital Imaging Group.

Wide-Angle Panorama Stitching and Advanced Video Performance.

In addition to its dual lens design, the 5-megapixel KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera boasts a variety of notable features to enhance the photography experience, including in-camera panorama stitching, which automatically combines three pictures into a panorama photograph. Using the ultra-wide view in panorama scene mode, people can take in a 180-degree vista with just three shots – an industry exclusive.

Packing advanced video performance, the KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera makes it easier for users to shoot all types of action in the way that many filmmakers prefer. The KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera records TV-quality video, up to 30 frames per second (fps) using advanced MPEG-4 compression. Built-in image stabilization technology reduces on-screen shaking from unintentional hand and camera movement. The KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera also offers an optical zoom feature for video including auto focus. And it is simple to select any frame in a video, then save and print it as a “freeze frame” still picture in just seconds.

The KODAK Easyshare V570 digital camera with Photo Frame Dock 2 will be available worldwide beginning later this month for US$399 (MSRP).

KODAK EASYSHARE V570 Reviews

‘CNET’ have reviewed the Kodak EasyShare V570, here’s their view: Because its unique lens set-up’s versatility is the hallmark of the Kodak EasyShare V570, we’d hoped for better image quality. The 3X zoom lens offered about the same image quality you’d expect from a run-of-the-mill 5-megapixel camera, while the fixed-focal-length lens performed about the same, except with that impressive ultra wide view. Both lenses suffered from purple fringing and a touch of blooming. While the 23mm lens’s optional barrel-distortion correction did a good job, its faux zoom function provided too much of a quality penalty to be used seriously; we quickly switched digital zoom off completely.
