What do you call a camera that wins American Photo magazine's “Camera of the Year” award, is a PC World 2006 “Innovations of the Year” winner and is a 2006 “Top 10 Pick” by the Into Tomorrow radio program?
You call it the Kodak EasyShare V570, a 5 MP ultra-thin compact digital camera with a 3x optical zoom, big 2.5” LCD monitor and something that noone else has: a second lens.
This Kodak digital camera has approached wide angle in an unusual way. It features an internal 3x optical zoom lens (39 – 117mm in 35mm terms) set below a second wide angle lens – a fast (f/2.8) fixed super-wide angle that's equivalent to 23mm on a 35mm camera. This enables the camera to offer true wide angle to moderate telephoto without extra bulk.
Being an EasyShare camera, the Kodak V570 features one-touch picture transfer, and comes with a stylish dock. (You can play slideshows on the camera while it's docked.) Other features include video anti-shake, in-camera video editing and 22 scene modes (including panoramic stitch assist).
