    Denguru has a good preview of what Kodak claims to be releasing the
    world's smallest 10X optical zoom digital camera. The article has
    sample photo's of 1x images and 10x images to show you the difference
    in quality and perspective.

    "Unless you've tried out a camera with a 10X optical zoom, it's hard to
    imagine how much that zoom capability is. The two pictures below were
    shot of the same scene - one at 1X, and the second at 10X. In a number
    of our test shots at 10X using the default "Auto" mode, we found the
    images to be crisp and in focus."

    Greetings Larsonist,

    Yeah, I was amazed by this model as well as the 705 that only has a 5X zoom
    but a larger sensor. Also does a great job. I carry the 570 around with me
    for any special shots and find them to be excellent. The quality of the
    optics is very good. I have recommended it several times. The new 610 is
    even better.

    Talk to you soon,

    This brings up a minor peeve of mine. "10x" really doen't tell me what
    I want to know. "38-380mm equiv." is what I'd like to see. The
    designation "10x" suggests that only the top of the range matters.
    What about us wide angle fans? And how usable will that 380mm
    equivalent tele be? Do people carry tripods with a camera whose main
    attribute is "pocketability"? Or perhaps they live on Mercury?

    The review above shows two shots, one taken at "1x" and one at "10x".
    Ugh. What is "1x" anyway? Apparently it's whatever the shortest
    available focal length is on that particular camera.

    Anyway, that's my peeve for today.

    I use zoom most of the time, usually max zoom. I had no problems getting
    good sharp images with the V610 hand holding. I am working on a gallery with
    some of those shots. I like the camera a lot it compliments my FZ30 quite
    well.

    Ron,
    Good to see you back in the newsgroup. Where have you been hiding?

    Hi Greg,

    I can appreciate your interest. Actually the camera starts out at wide angle
    or 38mm equivalent in 35mm terms. As you zoom out the aperture changes as
    noted on the spec page for this camera. For its size and versatility is a
    good camera for many. The two lenses in this camera yield the following.

    38-114 mm (35 mm equiv.) f/3.9-f/4.4
    130-380 mm (35 mm equiv.) f/4.8

    If you are going to take a telephoto shot, especially at 10x, you should
    have some support. There are small tripods around but if not, leaning on
    something, or setting the camera on some surface etc. and setting the timer
    may be a good way to get a shot a long distances. Anyway it is a pretty
    small camera and can do a pretty amazing job for its size.

    If you happen to be in a local store when the camera is available, check it
    out.

    Talk to you soon,
