Kodak V705 test with panoramic photos

Just before the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) started in 2006, Kodak introduced its first dual lens digital camera; de Kodak V570. Its successor, the Kodak EasyShare V705 was announced just over six months later and will be the subject of the following digital camera review. Although a dual lens camera, the Kodak V610, has appeared in the meantime, this turned out to be a camera with the emphasis on tele range (10x optical) instead of 5x optical as with the Kodak V570. The extra wide-angle range of 23mm in particular, a rare exception in a compact camera, makes the Kodak EasyShare V705 an interesting digital camera.

Kodak V705 - Dual Lens
The dual lens concept has made it possible to go further in the wide-angle direction without having to say goodbye to the (small) tele lens. The optical range of 23 - 177mm offers interesting possibilities for taking photos in smaller spaces, like a compact living room, or small spaces inside buildings. The focal range will also appeal to landscape or architectural photographers. The 7 Megapixels are enough to be able to post process the picture, make an enlargement of a crop or blow it up to a poster format print.

Panoramic photos

Kodak EasyShare V705 - Panoramic photos
A real 23mm wide-angle is of course, the ultimate camera for taking panorama pictures. Fortunately Kodak is aware of this and there are 2 panorama modes in the 22 pre-programmed scenes. The difference between the standard wide-angle of 38mm and the 28mm that you sometimes see in the competition is so big that the Kodak EasyShare V705 has distinguished itself on the digital camera market on this point alone.

Kodak V705 Test
I tested the Kodak EasyShare V705 compact camera thoroughly for quite a while. I had tried out its predecessor in the past and I had a few doubts about it. I will see if Kodak has listened to my words of warning in the following review. The competition has also not been standing still and standards have become more demanding. You can read the results of the test in the following Kodak EasyShare V705 digital camera review.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
