Koday EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera Review

Even it looks so small, Kodak V1003 offers not less than 10 megapixels (prints up to 30 × 40 in. or 76 × 102 cm). It is a fashionable point and shoot camera: comes in many colors (java black, java brown, pink bliss, red shimmer, cosmic blue, mystic purple, golden dream, white glaze, silver essence, slate gray) and optional fancy bag, skins, and wrist and neck straps. This aspect, plus the Favorite feature (save a picture as a Favorite), makes me say this is a fun camera to use.

As for the performance, its important that the Kodak V1003 comes with Digital Image Stabilization using anti-blur mode and KODAK PERFECT TOUCH Technology which, to say it in a funny way, “relive your memories in richer detail and clear up dark shadows to reveal more smiles”. Blurry picture alert, and digital red-eye reduction, as well as panorama stitch, also worth mention. It doesn’t have manual features, but a great variety of scene modes (22) for any kind of situation and a flexible movie mode compensate that partially. Whats new at this EasyShare V1003 is the high ISO mode up to ISO 1600 for bright pictures when shooting under low light conditions.
That was for the good, but now comes the bad: noise and artefacts are present in images more than on other cameras.

Compatibility and Accessories: super stylish Photo Frame Dock 2 and Camera Dock Series 3 (Charges your Kodak Camera Battery in less than 3.5 hours), Printer Dock and KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Printer 500, IMAGELINK print system compatible, PictBridge-enabled, A/V output (NTSC or PAL, user-selectable), digital (USB 2.0) connection and it works with KODAK EASYSHARE Software.

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".
