The KODAK EASYSHARE kodak V1073 is a 10-Megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom with optical image stabilization. It is one of the simplest looking cameras on the market because all of the controls are worked through the 3' Touch Screen LCD panel on the back. The 10MP images gives you the ability to print crisp and sharp prints up to 30'x40'.

The Kodak V1073 camera records HD-quality (1280x720) video, TV-quality video, 640 � 480 at up to 30 frames per second (fps) using advanced MPEG-4 compression. Built-in image stabilization technology reduces on-screen shaking from unintentional hand and camera movement. The camera's optical is fully functional during video recording including auto focus. With the Kodak V1073's built in editing, it's simple to select any frame in a video, then save and print it as a 'freeze frame' still picture in just seconds.

The kodak V1073 also includes a big 3 inch high-resolution Touch Screen color LCD which gains up in low light situations and features a wide viewing angle. With KODAK's PERFECT TOUCH Technology you can make your pictures as vivid as the moment you took them, print better, brighter pictures, and clear up dark shadows to reveal more smiles. Thanks to Anti-blur technology you can reduce the blur caused by camera shake, subject movement, or low- light conditions. The Kodak V1073 automatically adjusts its settings to let you choose from 22 scene and 5 color modes letting you take the best shot with the least effort.
