Kodak EasyShare V570 Digital Camera Announced

One of the most unique looking cameras to be seen in a while, the Kodak EasyShare V570 sports two lenses that don't protrude at all from the camera.  With one lens to provide an ultra-wide angle (22 mm focal length - 35 mm equivalent) and another to provide an optical zoom from 39-117 mm (35mm equivalent) the V570 provides a total of a 5x optical zoom.  The V570 will be available at the end of January for an MSRP of $399.

In a very nice looking compact body, the V570 can capture images up to 5 megapixels.  A line up of great features makes this camera very attractive.  A panorama stitch mode allows the camera to automatically stitch together up to 3 images.  If you use the wide angle lens, you can cover 180 degrees of the world around you with a panorama.

While shooting videos at 30 frames per second, the photographer can use the optical zoom and auto focus remains enabled.  A built-in stabilization technology reduces the shakes.
