Kodak Announces World's Smallest Camera with 10x Optical Zoom
In a follow-up to the distinctive 5.0MP dual-lens EasyShare V570, Kodak has announced the new 6.1MP EasyShare V610. The dual Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon zoom lenses are still carried over with the V610, but this time one has a focal length of 38-114mm while the second lens goes from 130-380mm.
The V610 looks strikingly similar to its predecessor, but is slightly larger to accommodate the new 2.8" LCD screen (up from 2.5" on the V570). As with most new P&S digital cameras released these days, the V610 has the ability to capture 640x480 video at 30FPS with sound. And speaking of video, the camera also features the ability to zoom up to its 10x limit during capture -- a feature sorely missed on many digital cameras. Other features thrown into the mix include Bluetooth 2.0 EDR support, 32MB of internal storage (a Secure Digital slot is available for additional storage) and image stabilization during picture and video capture.
