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 originally ordered the 610 and from the time I took it out of the package until I shipped it back I hated it. So I ordered this cute little thing and loved it from the moment I picked it up. It really has done the job for me. I keep it in my purse for all those pictures that just happen. I love taking pictures while on the back of our Harley. Pictures while we are riding with our friends or of scenary. It does this with no blurring or missed opportunities.

Summary: This camera was purchased primarily for real estate use. Wide angle photos that capture the whole room, floor and ceiling even. I just too prom photos of my kids at the Hyatt Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, Florida. They've been asked by their friends if we hired a professional photographer.
Summary: The picture quality is good, but when you take the flash off you have to hold still to take a picture or it will blur. If you have the flash on and you are moving or are in a car taking a picture it will not blur.Overall i really like this camera and the wide viewing screen is awesome
Summary: I just ordered this camera from Amazon. Yes, I paid a little more for the option of having it ship directly from Amazon (I selected the option "new and used from $..." ) but I prefer to have the Amazon return policy govern this purchase. Like other reviewers, I give this camera a top billing - if for no other reason than because of the wide angle lens.
Excerpt: The main feature of this camera has to be the impressive zoom range, normally only fiund in much larger cameras. This is extremely useful but does contain a contradiction in that it is very difficult to hold it steady when using the full extent of the zoom. It is in my view much easier to hold a camera steady when using a viewfinder rather than a screen, but this facility is not available.
Pros: Very impressive zoom range, light and compact
