Excerpt: After testing the Kodak EasyShare V1073, three words immediately spring to mind: value for money. This compact touch-screen-operated camera priced at rrp $399 offers the user an array of features for that price: 10 megapixels, a 3 inch (7.6cm) LCD screen, High Definition video record, 22 scene modes, 3x optical zoom, 5x digital zoom and smart capture mode – perfect for point-and-shoot operation with great results.
Excerpt: Kodak has always been at the forefront of stylish products. The V1073 is, in my opinion, one of the best looking cameras in the market. The performance is way better than the earlier ones we reviewed – but as always there’s something lacking. The camera has a brushed black finish throughout, which can be a bit uncomfortable for those with ultra-dry palms. The large 3-inch screen is the USP of the V1073, while the touchscreen feature adds a touch of extra desirability.
Summary: The test camera came without an instruction manual but we had no trouble finding our way around the various functions — the mark of an intuitive piece of equipment. We liked the zappy, Kodak-style images and were impressed with the print quality, even up to A4. Touch screens are not much to our liking, they seem more gimmicky than useful. And the zoom control is ridiculously small. But as the Box Brownie for the twenty-first century the Kodak V1073 fits the bill.
Pros: The picture quality is typically Kodak — bright, slightly over-saturated and over-sharpened. Postcard prints made straight from the camera on the new Kodak ESP5 printer are consistently excellent. And, much to our surprise, we found that pictures taken at ISO3200 are almost acceptable when allowances are made for the fact that it shouldn’t work at all. Noise reduction is generally, but not always, well handled at all speeds.
Cons: There is a strange effect of noise reduction that shows up in areas of solid colour, such as blue skies. The effect appears as solid blocks of blue of a different tone. Very curious. And the LCD is totally useless as a viewfinder in sunlight. The protective layer over the touch screen makes viewing in bright light impossible.
Conclusion: Эта стильная камера имеет темный металлический корпус, удобный сенсорный дисплей и, пожалуй, выглядит лучше, чем снимает. При благоприятных условиях освещения фотографии получаются вполне качественными, однако яркое солнце делает изображение на дисплее плохо различимым, а в сумерках резко снижается детализация и заметно возрастают шумы. Впрочем, не будем сгущать краски: на улице камера легко справлялась с большинством сюжетов.
