Kodak V705 Dual Lens Review

Review Date: Oct 10, 2006

Kodak EasyShare V705 Dual Lens
Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Kodak EasyShare V705 Dual Lens follows in the footsteps of the EasyShare V570 Dual Lens with 7.1 megapixel resolution and the same unique KODAK RETINA Dual Lens Technology: the upper lens is a fixed 23mm ultra wide-angle and the lower one a 3.0x 39–117 mm optical zoom, giving a total of 5x optical zoom [if you ignore the gap between the 23mm and 39mm focal lengths].

The Kodak V705 features an extra large 2.5-in. LCD screen that displays your captured images with a high 230,000 pixels resolution. And, new, it is now available in 3 different colours.

Kodak EasyShare V705: Absolute Pink, Silver Essence, Midnight Black
Absolute Pink, Silver Essence, Midnight Black

In addition to the ultra wide-angle coverage, Kodak has incorporated a new Panoramic feature that allows in-camera stitching of 3 images to produce a 180° image.

So what is the advantage of a 23mm ultra wide-angle lens on a consumer digital camera? The coverage is incredible. If you are always complaining you cannot include all your family members or friends in one group shot; if you find it difficult to take a picture of a whole building without having to back off so much that you are intruding into someone else's property; if you take frequent real-estate interior shots that just don't show off enough of the rooms... then you should check out the Kodak EasyShare V705.

Note: We placed the Kodak V705 into the ultra-compact category because it is quite thin (0.8 in.) and easily slips into a jeans pocket. Be aware, though, that it is wider than most ultra-compact digital camera.
