Kodak Easyshare V1273 Reviews

CNET.au reviews the Kodak Easyshare V1273 and writes;
“From the outside, the V1273 exudes sophistication from its metal and plastic construction and touchscreen. However, lacklustre performance lets this cheerful camera down.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Kodak Easyshare V1273 and writes;
“Both the V1073 and V1273 are beautiful to look at, and the touch-screen interface, while a problem for some people, is well designed and operates fairly smoothly. However both cameras suffer from slow overall performance and serious image quality issues. They’re marginally better value than the Sony T2, but not by much. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DCR reviews the Kodak Easyshare V1273 and writes;
“the V1273 isn’t a bad little camera, though poor battery life, nearly unusable high-ISO settings… As a device, the V1273 has a great look, but struggles at times to keep up appearances as a high-performance camera.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ThinkCamera reviews the Kodak Easyshare V1273 and writes;
“The quality is excellent, and really gets you thinking about why anybody is still buying camcorders! Okay, so it’s not up to a top notch HD moviemaker, but for many people this will be more than good enough.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET.uk reviews the Kodak Easyshare V1273 and writes;
” It seems as though Kodak blew all its budget for the V1273 on designing the gorgeous steel case, with none left over for a decent touchscreen, speedy interface or smart processing. A great style icon, but frustrating to use for anything other occasional snaps”
Rating: ★★★½☆

TechTree reviews the Kodak Easyshare V1273 and writes;
“With respect to ISO settings, the camera does curb noise down to acceptable levels up to ISO200; however, beyond that, things start to get a little out of hand. Images shot over ISO800 are rendered useless..”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Kodak Easyshare V1273 and writes;
“Noise is well controlled at lower ISOs and detail isn’t bad either. Colours are vibrant and the Face AF worked well ..Kodak’s EasyShare V1273 is a camera that’s more point and hope than point and shoot and the single most frustrating digital compact I’ve ever used.”
Rating: ★★½☆☆

    Do not agree with most these reviews in the slightest.

    This Cam is ingenious… From photo quality, to video quality, to the touch screen, to the amazing simplicity and thought Kodak has put into the workings of the operating system incorporated within the v1273. In-fact, My fiance loved it so much she drove down to Best Buy (After a Month without letting go of mine) and purchased her own! My sis can not stop playing with it, even though told her she could have my v1253!

    YES, it is a “little” bitty bit hard to see in extreme sun-light, but not as bad as most make it out to be.

    This Cam, along with the Kodak HD Dock cannot be beat! I have owned this Cam for 3 months now and have had nothing but perfect pic’s, with moments never to be missed due to the extremely quick response from Point to Shoot, and video footage that more than justifies the footage from a $500 dollar Recorder. C-Net UK is either smoking crack, or has simply received a incomplete version of the Cam, because more then half of the things they didn’t like about the Cam simply “DO NOT” Exist!!! One bull-Sh*t lie of a review!!!

    Highly Recommended! Get it, you will not be disappointed!
