It's Two, Two, Two Cameras in One

Ever wish you could carry your digital camera and a bunch of lenses in your shirt pocket and be ready for any shooting situation?

Well, thanks to Kodak, now you can. The company introduced the Kodak Easyshare V570 Dual Lens camera, a 5 megapixel digital camera sporting a 23mm wide angle lens and a 39-117mm zoom. The lenses are Schneider-Kreuznachs, made by the venerable German optics company Jos. Schneider Optische Werke GmbH.

Kodak says its new camera is the first of its kind to offer Retina Dual Lens technology. Each lens has its own image sensor (so there are two image sensors in the camera). The Easyshare V570 weighs less than 5 ounces, sports a 2.5 inch LCD screen and offers five color modes, including black & white and sepia.

The suggested retail price is $399.95.
