Kodak EasyShare V610 review

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Monday 18th, September 2006

When the first rumours about a new Kodak Easy-Share dual lens camera with CCD went around, the attention was drawn quickly. Indeed, Kodak introduced a digital camera with these techniques not long afterwards. The EasyShare V570 was a camera which had an extra wide-angle lens and a standard 3x optical zoom. The concept was on hand and Kodak got to work to apply this technique in a new digital camera: the 6.1 Megapixel Kodak EasyShare V610. The Kodak V610 digital camera is fairly compact and has a sleek design. Having a resolution of 6.1 Megapixel, which is considered more or less standard nowadays, the Kodak EasyShare V610 ensures enough image information to make a poster size print. The Kodak V610 is designed for a wide target group of consumers who are looking for a user friendly digital camera, where the main thing is ease and at the same time innovation. As far as the housing goes, not much has changed compared to the EasyShare V570: only the back has undergone a small facelift.
