  • 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.

Kodak V610 Review

Digitaltrends

  • Conclusion: This one is a toughie. The EasyShare V610 has a number of features that make it attractive: looks, thinness, a 10x optical zoom, built-in Bluetooth and Perfect Touch technology. I really have problems with the LCD screen and the hiccough as the camera “hands off” from one zoom lens to the other.

  • 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.
  • 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

  • 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...

  • Conclusion: Since the V610's a camera not without compromise, it's not quite 'V' for victory this time round. However, the thought processes that have gone into its creation are to be praised, and hopefully it signals the start of a fight back from Kodak.
  • Pros: Attractive and well built
  • Cons: Lack of effective image stabilisation

  • 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...
  • 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 col...
  • 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 war...

  • 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...

  • Excerpt: The second release in Kodak’s dual lens camera series after the V570 is the much awaited V610 — the camera that offers more than a mere increase in the megapixel count. This one goes all the way of taking full advantage of its second lens to add 10x optical zoom functionality in its ultra compact...
