Summary: I was very disappointed with the images produced by this camera. I had hoped the ultra-wide photos (which was my main reason for going with this camera) also would be ultra sharp, but instead they tended to be soft. The camera has a lag time of about 1/10th of a second, so it's more of a point, shoot and wait camera. The V705 may be okay for posting internet images or enlarging to small prints, but don't expect the sharpness typical of better quality cameras.
Summary: We bought this camera thinking that it would be our do-all "EuroCam" for an upcoming trip to Europe. It promised a sufficient range of performance and features to easily meet our needs on such a trip. Sadly, the camera is not up to filling this role. We will need to take another camera along with it. However, we will take the V705 for its wide-angle lens, the reason that we picked this model in the first place.
Summary: I love everything about this camera BUT....The display is very touchy. I only owned the camera for 2 months and my display broke. I had it in a case and must have bumped it just right. My display shattered. Mind you there is not a view finder so you can only guess what you are taking pictures of. This is NOT covered under your warranty. My camer has been in the repair shop for 3 weeks now and since the camera is so new there is no parts available yet.
Summary: As a realtor, I was very excited about this camera for wide angle interior shots at a low price in a very compact package. Unfortunately, the picture quality is very dissapointing. The images are barely adequate for web posting and brochure printing. Pictures are very soft and seem out of focus. I'll keep using it until I can find a better alternative without dropping over a grand on a digital SLR with a wide angle lense.
Summary: I have many digital cameras, thought I would try the V705. The anti blur technology does not work very good, if at all. Doesnt support high speed SD cards. Uses Hi Compression, no way to change it = low quality Pictures. Quick Time Video is not a good mode, I would like AVI SCN Custom mode is a joke. I talked to Kodak about these things and they are sorry. I will stick with a Winner, hp R817.
Summary: Mas allá de otros problemas que tuve, el error E45, es inevitable, se traba la guia del lente, queda continuamente fuera de foco y luego se apaga, se arregla y nunca queda bien, una mala experiencia y mucho dinero gastado.
Summary: Gute Kamera,schlechter Kundendienst. Es ist vergebliche Mühe wenn man Kodak in Anspruch nehmen muß. Leider giebt es keine Sevicleistung von Kodak für diese Kamera. Nach 5 Jahren giebt es keine Hilfe mehr.Bei meiner Kamera kommt der Fehler E45 und keiner will helfen.Eine Kamera von Kodak kommt für mich nicht wieder in Frage.
Summary: Die V705 ist ein hübsches kleines Teil, das Metallgehäuse ist solide und wirkt hochwertig. Das Display ist sehr schön hell... Aber das war es auch schon. Das Setup erlaubt nur simpelste Einstellungen, weder eine Wahl des Dateiformates noch der Bildqualität ist möglich. Die V705 macht alle Fotos mit einer extremen Kompression, so daß Farbsäume ausfransen und Flächen sehr grobe Artefakte zeigen.
Pros: 23 mm Brennweite
Cons: sehr schlechte Bilder wegen zu hoher Kompression
