CES Unveiled: Kodak Dual-Lens Digital V570


Snapped a few pics with the Kodak V570 this evening. The news of this dual-lens camera broke earlier, and it's worth a second look. Each lens is paired with a 5 megapixel CCD image sensor. One lens is a 23mm ultra-wide angle, and the other is a 39-117mm optical zoom. The wide lens gives you 70% more width than an average camera. As you zoom in and out, the V570 seamlessly switches between the two lenses—so you never have to think about whether you are in wide angle or not. That wide angle lens is accompanied by a panoramic stitching feature that will let you take a 180 degree photo in three shots.

Otherwise this has got the same features, from LCD screen size to the SD card slot, as most other digi-cams on the market and Kodak's pocket series. It will cost $399, no word on release date.
