Kodak Easyshare V570

The EASYSHARE V570 has two high quality Schneider-Krueznach lenses, using proprietary KODAK RETINA Dual Lens technology, the camera combines a f/2.8 ultra-wide angle lens (23 mm) and a f/3.9-f/4.4 3x optical zoom lens (39 - 117 mm) into a very compact assembly that's less than an inch thin. The lens does not extend out of the body and is protected by a built in circular lens shutter when powered down.

The V570 is powered by a proprietary KODAK Li-Ion Digital Camera Battery KLIC 7001 rated at 3.7v / 720mAh. Kodak claims the battery life at more than 150 pictures per charge. Battery life per CIPA testing method. The battery is charged whenever the camera is placed in the included Photo Frame Dock.

The Kodak Photo Frame Dock 2 when connected to your computer allows for quick and simple "one button" downloads of images and movies. It can also be connected to a TV for slideshow presentations. The camera's battery is automatically charged whenever it is placed in the docking cradle. A completely depleted battery will be fully charged in about three hours.

The I/O port on the Photo Frame Dock is a combination port to connect the USB cable for downloading images to a computer or to a PictBridge enabled photo printer. The Audio-Video Out cable for viewing on a TV set is also connected here. The video signal is selectable for NTSC or PAL.

On the right side of the camera is a DC IN jack (not shown) for charging the battery when not using the Photo Frame dock.

In some market areas the V570 comes with a USB/AV connector that plugs into the docking port on the bottom of the camera and does not include the Photo Frame Dock.

The V570 has ~32MB of internal memory and a SD memory card slot, no card is supplied with the camera. Images, movies and sound recordings can be copied from internal memory to SD card or vice-versa. We recommend the purchase of at least a 256MB SD card (or 1GB if doing a lot of high-res movies).

The V570 is also compatible with the optional Kodak Printer Dock Series 3 which does everything the supplied Photo Frame Dock 2 does -plus- it's a 4 x 6-inch dye sub photo printer. Simply place your camera on the Printer Dock, select the photo you want to print on the camera's color LCD and then press the Print button!  That's all there is to it - anybody can make photo-quality prints that look and last as long as conventional film camera jumbo prints.
