Shawn Barnett & Dave Etchells had their hands on the new Kodak Easyshare V570, a world’s first dual-lens digital camera with two ccd’s.
“Image quality-wise, we felt that images from the V570 showed excellent color, but were softer than we’d normally expect from a 5-megapixel digital camera. – We think that its practical resolution (that is, what you actually see in prints) is closer to that of a three or four megapixel model than a five megapixel one. Its noise-suppression algorithms are also prone to obscuring fine detail, particularly when the contrast levels of that detail are low. All digital cameras do this to some degree, but we felt that we noticed it more in the V570’s shots than we’re accustomed to.”
