Kodak EasyShare V1253 digital camera

 

Kodak's latest digital camera sports 12 megapixels, an HD logo and large screen, but is it enough to impress against offerings from the competition? We get snapping to find out. The Kodak EasyShare V1253 comes across as an average 12 megapixel camera...

3-inch widescreen display, shoots HD even video

12 megapixel mode doesn't use full screen, camera had trouble focusing indoors

The Kodak EasyShare V1253 comes across as an average 12 megapixel camera from Kodak. While we are impressed with some of the images, we can't but help think that if you are a party goer, you will be disappointed with the performance and the images the...

Kodak Easyshare V1253

 

A stretch too far for Kodak?

It looks great and user-friendly, but when it comes to taking still images the results don't match up to the specifications.

Kodak EasyShare V1253

 

While the megapixels continue to climb on digital still cameras, one area we haven't seen much movement is the video recording capabilities of these u...

Sharp pictures, great colour, wonderful design, HD video shooting

Extremely slow to recover from shots at times, some exposure problems

Kodak's V1253 takes great shots, is well designed and offers HD video recording; however, the speed to recover between shots can sometimes be in excess of five seconds, which really detracts from the user experience. Still if you aren't going to take...

Kodak EasyShare V1253 review

 

There's no shortage of 12-megapixel cameras on the market today. One of the slimmer and simpler competitors, the Kodak EasyShare V1253, not only maxes out the megapixels but stretches its LCD to a wide-screen 3.1 inches, as well. The V1253 keeps up...

The Kodak EasyShare V1253 has generally speedy performance; an attractive, compact package; a wide-screen 3.1 inch LCD; 720p movie capture; and it's easy to use.

Barrel distortion and vignetting at wide angle; only USB charging included; uses small, easily lost USB adapter.

Fast shooting and pleasing images in an easy-to-use design make the Kodak EasyShare V1253 an attractive--though not best-in-class--option.

Kodak EasyShare V1253

 

Kodak clearly understands the new breed of photographers who want to show off their handiwork on the big screen in their living rooms, and its EasyShare V1253 is a great digital camera for shooting photos and video to display on your HDTV.

Very large LCD (3.1 inches) ; Can capture 16-by-9 stills and video

Battery life a tad low ; Can be lethargic when storing images

You can shoot HD video on the V1253 and, with an optional HDTV docking station, display it on your television.

Review: Kodak EasyShare V1253

 

My ever-expanding digital life just got another hot shot of HD with the arrival of the palm-sized V1253. Built around a cinematic 16:9 aspect ratio...

Closing the loop between still image and video making and couch-bound enjoyment in front of the big screen. The user interface puts all the right adjustments at your fingertips without having to dig into the menus. And when you must dig a host of...
