Conclusion: In its attempt to produce an impressive 8MP compact, Kodak has done the right thing by choosing a larger CCD sensor. However, the only aspect of the camera that's worthy of praise is the colour reproduction.
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.
Excerpt: My biggest complaint with the Kodak V series digicams have mostly been design-related. The boxy-metallic build with tiny buttons are definitely not the way I like to use my cameras. Thankfully, at least one of those issues have been fixed in the new 8 megapixel model—the V803.
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.
