Easyshare V570 Camera

Has Both Wide Angle, Optical Zoom lenses
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 5, 2006 -- At this week's 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Eastman Kodak Co. introduced the world's first dual-lens digital still camera, the Easyshare V570. Using proprietary Kodak Retina dual-lens technology, the V570 camera wraps an ultrawide angle lens (23 mm) and an optical zoom lens (39 to 117 mm) into a package less than an inch thick.

The Easyshare V570 camera's ultrawide angle lens coupled with its optical zoom lens produces a total 5X optical zoom range. According to Kodak, no other consumer digital camera offers such a wide angle of view, nor the unique design of this model, whose all-glass, stacked Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon prism lenses never extend from the camera body.
In addition to its dual-lens design, the 5-MP camera has a variety of features designed to enhance the photography experience, including in-camera panorama stitching, which automatically combines three pictures into a panorama photograph. Using the ultrawide view in panorama scene mode, users can take in a 180-degree vista with just three shots -- an industry exclusive, according to Kodak.

The V570 records TV-quality video, up to 30 fps using advanced MPEG-4 compression, at an ultrawide angle to capture more of the scene. Built-in image stabilization technology reduces on-screen shaking from unintentional hand and camera movement.

The camera also offers an optical zoom feature for video, including auto focus. Other features of the V570 include:

  • A 2.5-inch, high-resolution LCD screen;
  • A Kodak Color Science image processing chip for image quality, low noise and precise exposure;
  • Automatic red-eye reduction, on-camera cropping, picture blur alert and auto picture rotation;
  • In-camera distortion correction to compensate for ultrawide angle fish-eye effects, which can be turned on or off;
  • Twenty-two scene modes plus three color modes;
  • The Photo Frame Dock 2, which provides one-touch picture transfer to a computer and which can play video and photo "slideshows" on the camera's LCD screen;
  • And 32 MB of internal memory, plus an SD card slot for additional storage.

The company says the Easyshare V570 with Photo Frame Dock 2 will be available worldwide beginning later this month for a suggested retail price of $399.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
