Summary: Great little camera. Purchased to replace older version of same product. Seems they've now discontinued. Too bad, the size of the camera itself (about that of a medium sized cell phone), along with the quality pics & versatile function have made it invaluable for professional use. Original purchase was in 2005, so have been using for right at seven years.
Excerpt: The Kodak Easyshare V705 is very good for outdoor shots and has an ultra wide lens for an ultra compact camera. The Anti-blur technology works great. The battery life is too short, you should buy a spare battery if you want to take pictures for the whole day without recharging the battery. Overall, I think the Kodak Easyshare V705 is a great camera.
Summary: The camera worked great for about 3 weeks and then took a dump. Since this was such an expensive purchase, we contacted the seller and he was more than happy to help us with whatever was necessary to make it right. It's true...satisfaction is the key to success!
Summary: I am a residential realtor and this camera was recommended to me as the best for my uses - absolutely right! I love it. I received the camera just as promised with all the accessories and in good condition. I couldn't be more pleased.
Summary: It's a wide angle camera that you can fit in your pocket--so it's great that way. The in-camera stitch is nice, and battery life is very impressive. But there's some real annoyances too. My beefs with this camera: * No control over image compression: Kodak has one setting and in my opinion it's far too highly compressed. Forget about being able to take a standard shot and focus in on some interesting detail. They're all lost in compression artifacts.
Summary: This camera has a lot of really nice features, especially the panoramic "stitching." I wish they had paid more attention to picture quality in low light. I cannot find settings that don't make some photos look dark and speckled.
Summary: This camera can do an awful lot. Like stitch several pictures together to make one long panorama picture. Great. It has a 5x optical zoom AND a wide angle. Great. It's got a huge and pretty decent LCD screen. Great. However, it's basic photography skills are lousy: 1.) It's got NO VIEWFINDER. Taking pictures in bright daylight is made difficult, as you HAVE to use the screen to frame your shot. 2.) Pictures are noisy.
