Beyond a dual lens configuration, there are plenty of good things about the V570 including a gorgeous 2.5 inch LCD that's useful even in bright sunlight, quick boot-up and more.
The Kodak V570, with its two lenses housed in the same camera, is a significant
departure from the standard point-and-shoot digital camera. This arrangement
allows the camera to achieve a good range of focal length without a protruding
The camera is similar in shape to its predecessor, the V550 and is exceptionally
pocketable at 4 x 2 x .75 inches. Where it differs from the V550 is its
additional wide angle lens... and I mean wide. The optical zoom lens covers a
rather standard focal range from 39mm to 117mm (35mm camera equivalent), while
the second lens is fixed at
When both lenses are considered, this computes to a 5x zoom range. But since the
wide angle lens has a fixed focal length, there is a gap between where the 23mm
ends and the zoom lens picks up at 39mm. Normally, this would result in a visual
jump when changing lenses, but Kodak decided to smooth the transition by
digitally zooming the wide lens from 23mm to 39mm. I don't like digital zooms
because they degrade image quality by cropping. The result is that taking
pictures at the mid range focal lengths (24mm - 38mm) produces images of lower
quality than the 5 megapixels you expected. I disabled the digital zoom feature,
which can be done through the camera's menu.
