Excerpt: The problem with many of today's compact digital cameras is the size of the sensor chips that are used in them. Most compacts use a minuscule 1/2.5-inch CCD that's so small even the best lenses struggle to record enough detail. The high level of noise produced by the smaller chips is also a major drawback.
Summary: The Kodak EasyShare V803 is an easy-to-use
digital camera that produces good image quality
at a very affordable price. It is ultra compact
with a flush design and is available in no less
than 8 different colours. Optional accessories
further enable you to personalize the camera. Like the other model in the V Series, the Kodak
V803 retains the unique on-camera panorama stitching
that makes taking panorama shots easy and fun.
It's great for group shots and wide landscapes.
Summary: Kodak was on the verge of producing a budget compact that had all the ingredients to e a winner. A soft lens and aggressive compression mean that the goal was missed by a mile. A greatshame and wasted opportunity for a company that's made some great cameras lately.
