Kodak Dual-Lens Camera

In the Kodak booth, the first thing that caught our eye was this striking, if creepy poster campaign:

It turned out the posters were promoting the Kodak EasyShare V570, the first Dual-Lens digital camera.

The camera itself is less than an inch thick. The lenses are both Schneider-Kreuznach-C-Variogon prism lenses that don't extend from the camera. Lens 1 is a 23-mm ultra-wide-angle lens and lens 2 is a 39-117mm 5x optical zoom lens.

The dual lens camera hooks up to Kodak's photo printer. The dual lens camera hooks up to Kodak's photo printer.

The camera also features "wide-angle panorama stitching," a system where you can combine three pictures into a 180-degree panorama. Additionally, the camera shoots video at 30 frames per second.

Kodak says the camera will be available in January, 2006 for $399. For more information, check out Kodak.com.
