Rose of Summer
The Kodak EasyShare V705 Dual Lens is
a beautiful compact digital camera with a unique
ultra-wide angle lens. Billed as the world's smallest
ultra-wide-angle digital camera, it in fact has
two quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH C-VARIOGON lenses:
a regular 39-117mm 3x optical zoom lens, plus
an ultra-wide angle 23mm lens perfect for group
shots of friends and family members, landscape
and real-estate photography.
With the Kodak V705's ultra-wide angle 23mm lens,
you can capture wide vistas, plus a unique in-camera
panorama stitching requires only 3 pictures for
a full 180° coverage. Use 2 or 3 shots stitched
together for real estate pictures.
The Kodak V705 is a Point-and-Shoot camera with
Auto (Programmed Auto) mode, easy-to-use Scene
Modes, and everything designed to make it simple
to use. It is similar to the V570 that it replaces,
and now sports 7.1MP resolution. Image quality
is good to very good.
The Kodak V705 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. An extra large 2.5 in.
LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels high resolution
and a wide viewing angle makes viewing pictures
The Kodak V705 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. Overall, it is a fun
camera and potential purchasers are those who
are attracted to its simplicity of use, the ultra-wide-angle
coverage for large group shots and easy in-camera
panorama stitching for spectacular landscape shots.
