Kodak Easyshare V550

 

Considering its heritage, it's surprising that Kodak has struggled in the digital camera market. But that's about to change.

The Kodak EasyShare V550 is a stylish, well made and technically impressive camera, with excellent performance and exceptionally good image quality. Both the camera and the supplied software are very easy to use, making this a good choice for a...

Kodak EasyShare V550 digital camera

 

Compact Digital Cameras are becoming two a penny at the moment and with more and more available on the market it's sometimes hard to separate the chalk from the cheese. Kodak has concentrated on the aesthetics and ease over everything else with its...

Scene mode buttons, large display

Expensive, docking station is a bit on the strange side

Overall the Kodak V550 is a smart little model that is easy to use and takes good pictures. We especially liked the scene mode shortcuts on the top of the model. What's the catch? Well the docking station doesn't look that robust and we get the feeling...

Kodak Easyshare V550

 

Kodak Easyshare V550 Review and Where to Find the Best Prices. Standard pocket sized digital camera.

No red eye shows in indoor portrait ; Shutter lag times are low ; Viewfinder ; Ease of use

Some photos are darker than I would like

"The Kodak Easyshare V550 is up against plenty of competition, but is well worth a close look. I was pleased with the picture quality and it is also very good when it comes to shutter delay. It is easy to use and well designed."

Kodak V550 : Kodak V550 Digital Camera

 

Kodak are certainly a name in photography, no doubt most of our grandparents had or have a Box Brownie in their lofts. Now they are a company producing digital cameras.

This is described as a pocket camera, it is 9x5.5x2cm, the width expands to 5cm with the lens open. It weights just over 150grams. It has a huge 5x3.8cm TFT display but also does have a viewfinder, however this is close to the edge and I think you...

Kodak V550 Zoom Review

 

The Kodak V550 is compact enough to fit in your pocket; those with large hands would want to try out its small control buttons first. An extra large 2.5 in. LCD monitor with 230,000 pixels high resolution and a wide 170° viewing angle makes viewing...

Review of the Kodak EasyShare V550 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

Kodak is really making advances with its cameras. The older CX or DX Easyshare cameras were big, clunky, plastic and ugly.

Kodak EASYSHARE V550 Zoom

 

This Kodak EASYSHARE V550 Zoom performs extremely well in terms of image quality, yet falls down in several other key areas.

Wonderful pictures, stylish design

Lacks advanced manual controls

This beautiful looking camera produces equally beautiful pictures.

Kodak EasyShare V550

 

The Kodak EasyShare V550 is zippy, stylish, and a good buy.

Exceptional speed and no shutter lag. Stylish design. Optical viewfinder along with a 2.5-inch LCD.

Some fringing in daylight images. Video quality could be better.

Kodak EasyShare V550 review

 

Kodak EasyShare V550

Sleek, attractive design; bundled dock for easy image transfer; useful selection of scene modes; in-camera help; above-average continuous-shooting speed.

A tendency to clip highlights; low battery life; mixed image quality.

This slick little camera (and its even slicker dock) makes short work of the entire picture-taking process but doesn't soar above the crowd in image quality.
