Kodak EasyShare V803 Digital Camera Review

This high resolution point-and-shot camera comes in 8 different colors of its fancy slim design, made of metal and plastic, with few buttons. No manual controls, no viewfinder: definitely a family camera. From all the scene modes, Im glad it has a panorama assist, but then again: it wont keep the original photos.

Battery consumption is about the average (200 shots). Shutter lag is as slow as 3 sec, and in low light it hardly focuses right. One thing I like is the blur warning and image stabilization. As for the image quality, its kind of noisy, with not very accurate white balance, purple fringing is well controlled, colors are highly saturated.

If you are interested in making short movies with this camera, I can fortunately say that you can use the zoom while filming. Kodak’s PerfectTouch technology will adjust your image, making it ready for high quality printing, while EasyShare system makes it easy to tag photos for e-mailing and printing.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
