Pocket-Lint have reviewed the new Kodak Easyshare V705 – a 7 megapixel update to the Kodak Easyshare V570 – it features a dual lens design with two 7 megapixel sensors, a 2.5″ screen, and 5x optical zoom, with one lens providing an ultra wide-angle view equivalent to 23mm, and the other providing a more normal 3x optical zoom range. It should be available in Pink, Silver or Black for £197.
“When Kodak first launched this form factor almost a year ago we must admit we had trouble grasping whether or not it was a gimmick or not. Two models on, including the 10x zoom V610 and it seems that the design and offering is working for Kodak. The inclusion of the wide angle lens is certainly a bonus if you need to take photos within a wide area. A simple refresh of the V570, rather than the ultra zoom V610, the new Kodak EasyShare V705 bumps up the resolution without affecting the image quality by too much.”
