David D. Busch has posted his review on Kodak EasyShare V570, the world’s first dual-lens digital camera with two ccd’s and 2.5-inch LCD Screen. He gives the camera 7.2 out of 10 (Very Good) and writes:
“The 3X zoom lens offered about the same image quality you’d expect from a run-of-the-mill 5-megapixel camera, while the fixed-focal-length lens performed about the same, except with that impressive ultrawide view. Both lenses suffered from purple fringing and a touch of blooming. While the 23mm lens’s optional barrel-distortion correction did a good job, its faux zoom function provided too much of a quality penalty to be used seriously; we quickly switched digital zoom off completely.
However, we liked the colors this camera produced. Blues and reds were fully saturated and brilliant, and flesh tones had only a slight reddish cast. The camera’s red-eye-prevention preflash eliminated most–but not all–of the red glow in human pupils. “
