Summary: I bought this for my wife for Christmas. The first unit was grainy, so I returned it to Amazon - quick and easy. The second unit resolved the problem. I bought this as a secondary camera that we can easily carry with us. Our other camera is an expensive performance model that is bulky.
Summary: The V570 is a great mid price digital. Picture quality is on par with more expensive Nikon and Canon cams. Innovative use of two lenses for regular and wide angle shots is impressive, though the lenses themselves aren't very fast, (that's why the cam is so inexpensive), they are servicible for a...
Summary: The camera takes great pictures. The dual lens lets you get really wide pictures as well as zoomed-in pics. Has built-in memory but also supports SD cards (which I recommend). The annoying thing is that you HAVE to use the dock for transferring images and recharging it.
Summary: This is a great compact camera that is easy to use and at the same time is capable to do more. The viewfinder or digital display is large enough to see your photos. The resolution is great. The dock is a wierd design, but you do not have to use it. Overall I am very pleased with this camera.
Summary: Have used this several times now and LOVE the wide angle lens. Stitching of panorama shots is good (better with practice pivoting rather than panning camera) Quality is acceptable for a point and shoot but not as sharp or clear as my Canon DSLR.
Summary: I am probably repeating previous comments, but: 1. The super wide angle lens is the nicest feature on the camera. No more backing into walls to get everyone in the shot. 2. The camera doesn't handle low light situations well.
Summary: I have a very nice Olympus digital camera is a notch up from the point-and-shoot category, and just purchased this camera to supplement it. The decision came down to 4 thing: 1) good video capability; 2) compact size; 3) low price; 4) good still-photo capabilities.
Great camera! OS X friendly. Needs one more adapter.

Summary: The Kodak EasyShare V570 is a really great camera. I've taken some pretty decent pictures with it, and I have absolutely no knack for photography. The "stitch 3 pictures into 1 panorama" feature really works, and is pretty easy to use. I've actually been able to take pictures of my dog, too.
Summary: I bought this camera 8 months ago and liked it enough to buy another for my son for Christmas. If you want a camera that does it all, is easy to use, and is compact enough to put in your pocket "comfortably" then go no further. Sure it has drawbacks.
