The KODAK EASYSHARE V610 is the world’s smallest 10X optical zoom digital camera. Using KODAK's RETINA Dual Lens Technology you can capture amazingly 10X zoom pictures with its 130-380 mm (35 mm equiv.) Telephoto, or use the standard 38-114 mm (35 mm equiv.) for normal shooting. All this power is packed into an ultra-slim package less than an inch wide.

In addition to its dual lens design, the 6.1-megapixel V610 camera boasts a variety of notable features to enhance the photography experience, including in-camera panorama stitching, which automatically combines two or three pictures into a panorama photograph. By using the panorama stitch mode, you can capture even the most expansive shots with just three frames - an industry exclusive.

The V610 camera records 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 V610'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 V610 also includes a big 2.8 inch high-resolution 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 V610 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.

The V610 is part of the KODAK EASYSHARE System, so sharing your pictures is amazingly simple. Just press "Share" and your photo will be ready to print or e-mail later. With the KODAK EASYSHARE Software (included) you can organize files and folders, print greeting cards, and create Photo Projects.
