Kodak EasyShare V610 Reviews

Kodak EasyShare V610 Photography Blog has reviewed the Kodak EasyShare V610 digital camera and write: “V610’s obvious competitor is the similarly priced Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1, which held the title of smallest camera with a 10x zoom lens for a few months until the V610 came along. The Kodak V610 is smaller, fitting into a trouser pocket, whereas the DMC-TZ1 requires a small camera bag. On the other hand, the 10x zoom on the TZ1 is via a single lens and covers the full, wider focal length of 35-350mm, whereas the Kodak’s dual lens system has a gap in the middle and that annoying pause whilst switching from one lens to the other. The Kodak camera has one more megapixel than the 5 megapixel Panasonic, but I preferred the image quality on the TZ1, and it also offers that important optical image stabilisation system which makes it a better camera for low-light situations.”

Trusted Reviews has posted a Kodak EasyShare V610 review where they write: “Never again will Kodak not be in my short list when people ask me to suggest what digital camera to buy. The EasyShare V610 is a superb compact digital camera with an amazing amount of features squeezed into a slim body. The dual lens system gives you an amazing focal length without the usual problems associated with a very long lens. The panoramic feature is more than just a gimmick and works brilliantly, while the integrated Bluetooth makes sharing your pictures a breeze. Image quality is also well above average as long as you don’t push the ISO too high. If you’re looking for a feature rich, do it all camera but don’t want a digital SLR, the V610 is definitely worth considering.”

CNET has reviewed the Kodak EasyShare V610, they give the digital camera a rating of 7.4 out of 10 and write: “With the EasyShare V610, Kodak takes its innovative dual-lens camera design to its logical conclusion. The company pairs a typical compact-camera 38mm-to-114mm zoom lens with a second 130mm-to-380mm lens, for an effective 10X optical zoom range; a gap remains between 114mm and 130mm. Unlike most big zoom cameras, the 6-megapixel Kodak EasyShare V610 is small and made mostly for snap-shooters, so it doesn’t include manual exposure controls. Unfortunately, it also lacks image stabilization, which would’ve made that long zoom much more useful, and its image quality doesn’t match its snazzy design.”

Digital Trends has posted a Kodak EasyShare V610 review where they gave the digital camera a rating of 7.5 and write: “This one is a toughie. The Kodak EasyShare V610 has a number of features that make it attractive: looks, thinness, a 10x optical zoom, built-in Bluetooth and Perfect Touch technology. I really have problems with the LCD screen and the hiccough as the camera “hands off” from one zoom lens to the other. And the camera is pretty slow saving images to the card; overall image quality was average, nothing to write home about with more noise that you should expect from a 2006 digicam.”
