Kodak V610 Dual Lens Review

Review Date: Aug 1, 2006


Mouseover for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Kodak EasyShare V610 features 6.1 megapixel resolution and a dual lens design we first saw on the EasyShare V570. On the Kodak V610, the lower one is a 38–114 mm (35 mm equiv.) 3.0x optical zoom lens and the upper one a 130–380 mm (35 mm equiv.) 2.9x optical zoom lens. The camera defaults to the 38mm lens and you zoom to the longer focal lengths. In fact, each lens has its own 6MP image sensor.

As we saw on the EasyShare V570, the transition from one lens to the other is effected by using digital zoom. So it's debatable if it's a real 10x "optical" zoom coverage. Many consumers might be willing to trade the slight 114mm to 130mm gap (if they disable digital zoom) for the benefit of having such a long focal length coverage on a compact digital camera -- with no lens protrusion at all, thanks to the use of prism lenses.

Unlike too many digital cameras that give you a large LCD screen without increasing its resolution, the Kodak V610 has an extra large 2.8-in. LCD screen that displays your captured images with a high 230,000 pixels resolution.

New is embedded BLUETOOTH® Wireless Technology that provides a simple, convenient way to share pictures wirelessly between BLUETOOTH® embedded devices such as mobile phones.

The Kodak EasyShare V610 Dual Lens is currently the smallest 10x "optical" zoom digital camera.
