Compact digital cameramakers strive to produce small, pocket-sized cameras that boast the same features of bulkier models. Kodak is no different, and the Easyshare v610 rises to the challenge.

Compact digital cameramakers strive to produce small, pocket-sized cameras that boast the same features of bulkier models. Kodak is no different, and the Easyshare v610 rises to the challenge. Weighing in at just 160 grams, and only 23mm thick, the v610 easily tucks into any pocket. Think Camera says they were able to cover 80% of the camera with a credit card, and compared its thickness to a couple of CD cases. Many ultralight cameras suffer from awkward handling, but the v610's ridged body makes it easy to grasp, and it's still large enough to hold two-handed without obscuring either of its two lenses. Ilikecameras touts the v610s ease of use as one of its chief benefits, and indeed, this camera is fairly intuitive. Easy to use doesn't mean it's light on features though; according to Ilikecameras, even professionals should be pleased with the feature set. Dual lenses, teamed up with two CCD sensors give the camera extra zoom range, although there is a minor gap in the middle when using it at 10x.

The camera performs panoramic stitching in-camera, however, so this should be easy to work around. A large color display also pleases DPReview, but Think Camera complains that the display is actually the weakest point of the camera. Indoors, the display can be indistinct, and the problem worsens when taken outside. Stitching images on the screen can be difficult, and thumbprints could be an issue. The screen does, however, feature useful information, such as blur alert, and in-camera editing such as the previously mentioned stitching and on-screen cropping make image enhancement easy. Other features include 18 scene modes, integrated Bluetooth, and 6.1 megapixel resolution. Think Camera classifies its image quality as “OK”, and found sharpness to be a bit soft. However, this can generally be corrected with a few minutes of image correction, or even automatically with photolab processing systems. Overall, for its size, the v610 is loaded with features, and it is the smallest camera to boast 10x optical zoom. For hobbyists looking to take pleasant snapshots, this camera should perform well.
