This Kodak EasyShare V610 Dual Lens Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

This review has been submitted to DIWA Awards [Total: 68%].


The Kodak EasyShare V610 Dual Lens is an ultra zoom digital camera with ultra compact dimensions. The elegant compact digital camera comes with two quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH C-VARIOGON lenses: a regular 38-114mm 3x optical zoom lens, plus a second 130-380mm 2.9x optical zoom lens that in effect gives a total of 10x optical zoom and make the V610 "the world's smallest 10x optical zoom digital camera."

If you've ever tried street photography, or tried to take pictures of pets, you know that you want to be as inconspicuous as possible and not get physically too close so as not to disturb "the moment."

Now, with Kodak V610's ultra-tele 380mm lens, you can get real "close and personal" while staying quite a distance away. And if your subject notices you pointing a small compact digital camera in their general direction, they might think you're too far away to get much of a shot.

The Kodak V610 is a Point-and-Shoot camera with Auto (Programmed Auto) mode, easy-to-use Scene Modes, and everything designed with the beginner in mind. Image quality is good to very good at ISO 64, and average at higher ISOs.

The Kodak V610 is compact enough to fit in your pocket, though its elongated shape means that it is a bit wider than most digital cameras. Those with large hands would want to try out its small control buttons first, though I did not experience any problem using them.

An extra large 2.8 in. LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels high resolution and a wide viewing angle makes viewing pictures easy. Your telephoto needs covered, what about wide-angle coverage? Though the shortest focal length is a standard 38mm, the unique panorama stitching makes it very easy to take 2 or 3 shots and have the camera stitch them together in-camera on the spot. "Wide-angle" shots have never been easier.

The Kodak V610 is part of Kodak's EasyShare series which makes it simple to produce 4x6 in. borderless prints using the optional Printer Dock Plus Series 3 at a touch of a button. Built-in BLUEOOTH technology means that you can conveniently transfer and print images without using a cable to a BLUETOOTH-enabled PC and printer.

The Kodak EasyShare V610 Dual Lens is overall a fun digital camera that will allow you to take great pictures. Maybe not the best as far as image quality is concerned, but for a take-anywhere [where larger ultra zoom might be frowned upon] point-and-shoot, 10x optical zoom in your pocket is worth its weight in gold.
