Kodak V705 Camera
Wide-angle shots are often difficult with point-and-shoot cameras. Their small lenses virtually dictate that shots have a narrow focus. Kodak claims that its new 7 megapixel V705 is capable of ultra-wide-angle shots with a 23mm fixed lens that accompanies the regular 39-117mm zoom lens on the unit. Beyond this, the V705 also reflects Kodak's typical emphasis on features: it has anti-blur (image stabilization) technology, on-camera image correction and red-eye reduction, and EasyShare for marking photos you want to e-mail or print later. Pricing hasn't been listed yet, but Kodak expects the camera to be ready in September. A photo of the back is available after the jump.
