Kodak V1073 and V1273 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

Summary

Our Score:

7

A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.

All test shots are from the V1273.

Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.

----

Although the level of detail looks very good, it is over-sharpened and over-compressed.

----

The Schneider-Kreuznach lens performs well, producing only a little barrel distortion.

----

Centre sharpness is excellent...

----

...and corner sharpness isn't too bad either, only dropping off in the far corners.

Would be nice with a review on the movie mode. As this is the big difference compared to other cameras.


panasonic fx35, TZ5 and sanyo hd800 is the competition


the best movie mode now the canon and sony cameras have, althou just VGA

Nice camera, shame about the Kodak's terrible customer service. Purchased mine on 4 May to capture baby's first weeks. Six weeks later - and ten days after birth - it broke. Kodak won't refund or exchange. Must be sent away for repair, taking around 3 weeks. No alternative means of photographing new born. Kodak now say I have to wait in for next 48 hours for UPS to collect product. Handy. Apparently, Kodak only refund products that break within 28 days - not a great endorsement of their products, is it?

Must agree that difficult to see in bright sunlight, but other than this great camera. Video so good that JVC everio now on Ebay, 4 gb card does 29 mins at high def. Simple to use , idiot proof even and great stills. One of the easiest cameras I have had to upload and sort with easyshare software.
