Conclusion: Kodak EasyShare V705 Test conclusion Having a second lens is still an attractive concept. No one else is making such extreme wide-angle in the compact camera segment, so the Kodak EasyShare V705 camera is bound to be popular with landscape photographers. To be honest, I can imagine them having the Kodak V705 as an extra digital camera. When Kodak's first dual lens system camera was introduced, it was met by surprised and positive reactions.
Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare V705 digital camera is the worldâ€™s smallest ultra-wide-angle zoom digital camera. Letâ€™s take a look at what else makes this camera special: Retina technology that pairs two lenses on the front, anti-blur technology that reduces blur caused by camera shake, subject movement, and low light and in-camera panorama stitch mode which allows photos capturing up to 180 degrees of view.
Summary: The Kodak EasyShare V705 Dual Lens is
a beautiful compact digital camera with a unique
ultra-wide angle lens. Billed as the world's smallest
ultra-wide-angle digital camera, it in fact has
two quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH C-VARIOGON lenses:
a regular 39-117mm 3x optical zoom lens, plus
an ultra-wide angle 23mm lens perfect for group
shots of friends and family members, landscape
and real-estate photography.
Summary: The V705 makes a stand for innovation, style and sheer egg-head lunacy. You might not care for the Kodak's austere design, dual-lensed awkwardness or average image quality, but any camera that pushes boundaries while raising a smile deserves to find an audience.
Summary: The Kodak Easyshare V705 is a very stylish and very unique
camera, thanks largely to its innovative dual lens system,
which offers an ultra wide 23mm and a 39-117mm zoom lens,
all in a metal body just 2cms thick. There's obvious distortion
at the 23mm end of the zoom range and the step-up from 23
to 39mm takes a little getting used to, but that's a small
price to pay for the flexibility that's on offer.
