Ultra-wide angle lens (23mm) and an zoom lens ( 39 to 117 mm) combined using Kodak new RETINA dual-lens technology, are packed in compact camera body no thicker then an inch.

Another interesting feature of this camera tween it’s unique design is the fact that all-glass Schneider-Kreuznach C-Variogon lenses never extend from the camera body. Image sensor used in this camera have effective 5Mpix. Camera also includes panorama stiching in camera, combines three shoots into panorama photo. Cause very wide angle lens only three shoots are enough for whole 180 degrees panorama picture.
Also Kodak V570 camera offers TV quality video recording, even up to 30 fps using advanced MPEG-4 codec for compression video.
