Kodak EasyShare V610

Digital Photography Interface
7 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Kodak EasyShare V610 is a compact camera with a 10X zoom range and big LCD. Despite being an "ultra-zoom" camera, the V610 has more in common with compact point-and-shoot cameras. The V610 is different from other cameras in some ways such as having Bluetooth and built-in panorama stitching. Other than that are the standard point-and-shoot features like a heap of scene modes, standard performance, a good movie mode and image quality which is almost on-par with others.
  • Pros: Two lenses which cover a 10X zoom range, Large LCD with good visibility, Good performance except autofocus, Bluetooth-enabled, Built-in panorama stitch and Kodak Perfect Touch, Many scene modes, Nice VGA movie recording at 30 FPS with zoom, Good image quality with low noise
  • Cons: Terrible battery life, No manual controls, No optical image stabilizer, Too many buttons, In-between lens gap and unresponsive zooming, No live histogram; very limited information during shooting and playback, Autofocus could be faster; very slow in low-light

  • Conclusion: Kodak EasyShare V610 dual lens camera We got acquainted with the dual lens concept of Kodak before with the EasyShare V570. The emphasis was then on ultra wide-angle and less on telephoto. With the Kodak EasyShare V610 Kodak has changed tack and thrown itself on to the telephoto range. The concept stays attractive and innovative and is still unique in the world of digital cameras.

  • Conclusion: People who buy iPods are often mocked for ignoring cheaper, more capable MP3 players because they like the shiny white box and 'no need for a manual' interface. It's easy to forget sometimes that some people also buy cameras based more on their looks than their photographic capabilities, and the the EasyShare V610 certainly falls into that sector of the market.
  • Pros: Superb styling, build and finish, Uniquely compact 10x zoom camera, Carry-anywhere model that is truly pocketable, Decent resolution, Easy to use, novices will appreciate the integration with EasyShare software, Bluetooth file transfer, Large, bright screen (however, see below), Bright, vivid color; typical 'Kodak' output, Useful in-camera editing features, Generally responsive (however, see below), Orientation sensor works in playback mode, Very reliable auto white b...
  • Cons: Wide zoom lens is soft in the corners, More distortion in the center of the zoom range than with a single 10x zoom, Zoom mechanism annoyingly slow, Live preview resolution low, Slow - and occasionally unreliable - focus at the long end of the zoom, No indication of shutter speed, Camera shake warning only visible after taking the shot, Some pattern metering issues with 'none standard' scenes, Noisy at higher ISOs, nasty noise reduction at ISO 200+, Images are over-com...

  • Summary: The Kodak EasyShare V610 Dual Lens is an ultra zoom digital camera with ultra compact dimensions. The elegant compact digital camera comes with two quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH C-VARIOGON lenses: a regular 38-114mm 3x optical zoom lens, plus a second 130-380mm 2.9x optical zoom lens that in effect gives a total of 10x optical zoom and make the V610 "the world's smallest 10x optical zoom digital camera.

Kodak V610 Review

Digitaltrends
27 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Poor Panasonic. Trying hard to make headlines in the digicam arena with the new 5-megapixel Lumix DMC-TZ1 , the “thinnest 10x optical zoom camera available” at 1.58 inches thick Kodak comes along and trumps them with the 6MP EasyShare V610, a dual lens 10x zoom camera that’s .9 inches thick. Although it’s not a true 10x optical zoom like the TZ1 with its range of 35-350mm (more on this in a bit), Kodak’s marketing hype will surely trump our friends in Secaucus, NJ.
  • Pros: Thinnest 10x zoom digicam; Bluetooth built-in
  • Cons: Not a seamless 10x zoom; slow response

  • Summary: Kodak’s innovative twin-lens, that first appeared on the V560, was a headline grabber. Now with the V610 theres still no sign of a copy from competitors. However, the image quality sometimes leaves a little to be desired, especially when compared to the (admittedly larger) super zooms out there which offer up-close imaging.
