Excerpt: This is actually the camera that our company lends out to us whenever we go to seminars and conferences. The old one we used was a Sony 2MP, primitive if you can call it. So I was happy when they finally realized that we needed a new one, but really disappointed that they got this instead of an Olympus. My girlfriend used to own a 3MP Kodak Easyshare , and she wasn’t particularly happy with it.
Summary: I picked the M1033 up at a local Best Buy, intending to replace my decrepit 3.3Megapixel Olympus. I wanted a small form-factor camera with high resolution, and passable video I could use so my wife wouldn't have to lug around our video camera for occasional use.
At first, I was excited, but the glamor wore off quickly. I would not recommend the device without SIGNIFICANT CAVEATS. Read on...
* Form factor: the camera is friggin tiny.
Summary: I received this as a present and was quite excited. It was easy to set up but I shouldn't have bothered. Firstly the large frame is out of proportion to the small picture. A previous review said that you don't notice the pixels if you're a long way away, but with this size of screen if you want to see anything of detail that's not an option.
Summary: Thia picture frame has no internal memory, so you can only watch your current pictures This write up does not reflect this, and I wasted a long time trying to sort it out, till I saw in small letters that the SV710 has no internal memory.
Summary: I could find no mention of the actual image resolution (how sharp it is) but the product description says "Pictures and videos are brilliant and sharp on the widescreen LCD". I tried hard to find resolution data, even on the Kodak site, with no luck. Turns out the picture quality is awful. It is very pixelated. My mobile phone has a far better resolution. I would say the pixels on the screen are about 1mm square. I can see the pixels from about 2ft away.
