Summary: Final Thoughts
First let’s go over the things I really like about this digital camera. I think the thing that I like the most is the smart shooting mode. This for the most part will select the best shooting mode for you. That way you will get the best picture possible when shooting and you do not have to mess around with any of the settings. Another thing that I like about this camera and most new Kodak cameras is that you have the choice to shoot in 4:3 and 16:10 modes.
Pros: Small and compact, Easy to use, Can shoot in 4:3 and 16:10 modes, Shoots HD video (720p), Touchscreen
Cons: Sometimes is slow to turn on, Touchscreen not that responsive, No stylus included
Summary: At the end of the day, the V1273 isn't a bad little camera, though poor battery life, nearly unusable high-ISO settings, sluggishness in odd places, and images that seem to emphasize quantity of pixels over quality generally hurt its chances with consumers. As a device, the V1273 has a great look, but struggles at times to keep up appearances as a high-performance camera.
Pros: Award worthy styling, build quality, Vibrant images at lower ISOs, Shooting speed rarely a problem, Touch interface is carefully thought out
Cons: Screen is weak and hard to see, Power-up cycle takes forever, Full-res ISO 3200 not very useful, Get used to those "Insufficient Battery" warnings
Stylish 12-megapixel camera with a touch-screen interface.

Summary: Kodak's EasyShare V1273 is a decent compact camera that is hampered by its poorly implemented touch-screen interface. The shots are fairly good although a tad soft, but the controls will get the best of even the most tolerant user.
Pros: Stylish matte black design, great noise control
Cons: Touch-screen interface is annoying and poorly implemented, shots not quite crisp enough for a 12-megapixel sensor, screen very poor in bright light
Cons: You cannot see the LCD in moderate lighting, noisy images at higher sensitivity, you cannot see the LCD in brighter lighting, poor AF in low light, you cannot see the darn LCD unless you're indoors or in near darkness!
Conclusion: Kodak prezentuje kolejny model kompaktu typu "slim" o grubości obudowy 21 m. Aparat został wyposażony w matrycę CCD o rozdzielczości 12 milionów pikseli i trzykrotny, niestety nie szerokokątny, zoom. EasyShare wyróżnia się spośród większości produktów konkurencji dotykowym ekranem LCD o rozdzielczości 230 tysięcy pikseli.
Pros: niski poziom szumów, dobra ostrość zdjęć
Cons: słaba dynamika obrazu, nie ma szerokokątnej optyki
