Summary: Before I bought this camera, I was worried about some of the reviews. I guess you can't please everyone. As long as you can recharge the camera, or carry a spare li-ion battery, you will be fine. The zoom is great, but the really outstanding feature of this camera is the wide angle lens. You won't be just using it for those indoor family shots-- it is great outdoors too, taking in additional scenery without distortion. The panorama feature is easy to use, too.
Summary: Is it possible to be in love with an inanimate object? Because I am!!! I love the wide angle lens on this camera, it just makes the pictures look more professional whether your doing landscapes and portraits or just having a night out at the bar. I'm not a big fan of their red eye technology, but the rest makes up for it. You can use the fish eye lens, sepia for an aged look, or spotlight.
Great real estae camera when used with external flash

Summary: This is a great camera for real esate. The problem with the V705 for real estate is the wimpy flash on the camera. The flash was designed to light up people 6 to 8 feet away from the camera, not large rooms. I bought an external flash off ebay that works with any digital camera and the photos are excellent. The flash unit is larger than the camera!
Summary: This is a great camera! Finally someone has made a camera that takes in the whole field of view, not just a small portion of it. Also the image quality is excellent. I took some pictures in a low lighted restaurant without a flash and they came out extremely well. In normal lighting conditions the pictures are sharp and the color is excellent. The screen menu is also very intuitive and easy to use. On the down side, there are a few minor issues.
Summary: This is about the 5th digital camera I have owned and I think that none have compared to the quality vs price as this one. I was a little frightened by some of the reviews but after getting this camera I have taken about 200 pics in the last 4-5 days (learning how to use the different settings) and I am really pleased that I ordered it. As with all new products you buy you have to learn how they work. The more options, the more to learn.
Summary: there are a lot of canon lovers who like to post negative reviews on other camera brands. well, this camera has a unique feature that other brands don't have--in-camera stitching of up to three wide angle shots so that you get a great superwide panoramic shot right out of the camera. no computer is needed. and yes, you can save the shots individually if you want to stitch them on a computer. just save three individual 23 mm shots--it is not rocket science.
Excerpt: " This model Kodak is a 7.1 megapixel digital camera which is quite impressive. What makes this camera so different to other makes of cameras is that it has two lenses, one for the wide angle pics the other one for normal pics. It is also the world's smallest ultra-wide angle zoom digital camera. The first lens which is the wide angle lens gives you 3 times optical zoom whilst the second lens goes even better giving you 5 times ...
Kompaktkamera in edlem Gehäuse mit vielen Möglichkeiten
8 September 2008
Summary: Ich nutze die Kodak V 705 beruflich als Immobilienmakler mit fast täglichem Einsatz. Sehr überzeugend für mich ist natürlich der unschlagbare Weitwinkel von 23 mm mit nur wenig Krümmung an den Bildrändern, welches vom Programm automatisch ausgeglichen wird. Für eine Kompaktkammera in dieser Preiskategorie ist das nicht alltäglich.
Summary: Ottima la qualità delle foto tradizionali, spettacolari le foto panoramiche. Molto intuitiva e semplice da utilizzare sia a livello pratico, nello scatto che a livello software nell'impostare la macchinetta per poter avere delle foto particolari regolando i vari setup in manuale (bilanciamento bianco, ISO, cambio modalità colore, esposizione lunga) oppure in automatico. Si possono effettuare video.
Pros: maneggevole, comoda, ottime foto
Cons: tasti un po' piccoli, manca lo stabilizzatore .
Summary: Diese Kamera ist einer der kleinsten Weitwinkelkamers - und wird leider unverständlicherweise von KODAK nicht mehr produziert. Deshalb ist ein richtiger run auf diese Kameran entstanden. Sie wird jetzt leider schon weit über dem ehemaligen Verkaufspreis von ca. 180.-Euro gehandelt.
