20080221 - I bought Kodak v570 to make wide-angle indoor real estate shots for the web + the cool 'virtual tour' stitch feature (I tried it at CES Las Vegas when it was first announced). The quality of daylight photos is better than indoor of course -- in fact I still use old DC-260 which can shoot in less-lossy .fpx format -- for some 72 ppi webshots. I miss not having DC's manual focus option of preset fixed focus choices. Interestingly enough I use the video mode as much as still -- for ...

Wide Angle is the reason to buy this camera. In low-contrast, bright outdoor conditions, the camera can capture beautiful images of landscapes and cityscapes, rivaling (almost) an entry-level DSLR. All this for less than $200 and it fits easily in your pocket. A great bargain. But you should buy the camera only for this purpose. It doesn't do anything else well (save the related, fun toy of in-camera panoramas). Problems: No optical viewfinder, so composition in bright sunlight is entirely ...

Find me another pocket movie camera with 24mm that allows me to get everyone in frames at indoor parties for under $200. I don't think you can find it at any price at this time except for the dual lens kodak. Okay the images are not crisp but adequate for 4x6 prints which is what 95% of pictures that get printed. Problems: Controls too small and not ergonomic for extended time movie clips. Unlike my Fuji M503 which is a great one handed movie camera this camera requires 2 hands for all shots ...

A highly recommended Pocket P&S Camera. It's now more economical than most competitors! Pro's: 1) Very nicely built; a characteristic signature of your taste - different and stylish than others; 2) Good value for money now; I bought it for CNY 1,600 (less than USD 200); less expensive than most bulkier 3X compacts; 3) Ultra-wide angle -23mm - not a match by others by all means; 4) Very responsive compared to other pocket ones; 5) Nice LCD display - colorful and contrasty; workable under ...

Kodak V570 is a small pocket camera with lots of features. Its wide angle shooting mode is superb. Macro feature is unbelievable. Usage is very simple. The image quality is satisfactory. It even has a histogram feature. Problems: Charging the battery needs using its special cradle. I'd prefer charging with an adapter, but it is no big deal.

I have been shooting Canon Pro-line SLRs for years (film & Digital.) I hated the bulk and weight of the full-sized camera, but did not want to give up quailty. This camera takes outstanding pictures. I have recently entered one of the pictures into a photo contest. It is small enough to fit perfectly into a I-pod case! There is no reason to be without this little wonder. Fantastic close-up work! nice video. Problems: Not exactly unexpectedly, the flash is weak, the battery is short-lived. ...

I was looking for a wide angle-lens accessory for my DX6490 and I was also tempted to pick up a simple compact camera to just carry around with me everywhere. Kodak basically offered me a two-in-one package of what I wanted exactly and I just took it. The V570 comes in a small, attractive, metal frame. Big and bright LCD almost makes you forget about the missing viewfinder. Dual lens system works great, even better if you turn off the digital zoom. Wide-angle lens can cram so much more in and ...

I bought the V570 as a set-up camera for travel/architectural photography; i.e. to sample scenes, perspective, layout, objects (like they used to with a Polaroid). If I like what I see, then I'll set up the big rig, tripod, etc. and shoot. The V570 is light, attaches to my belt, easy to use. Full of features, intuitively operated. Recommend as an all pupose P&S for casual photographer with advanced features for the skilled user. The built-in wide angle is very good, stiching is a breeze.
