The Kodak EasyShare V570 was a 5-megapixel digital camera manufactured by Eastman Kodak. Announced on January 2, 2006, it was an upper-end model in the consumer price range, advertised at $400 in the United States in January 2006. It had an innovative dual lens system, combining two periscopic groups each with its own sensor: one very wide angle equivalent to a 23 mm in 135 format and a 3X zoom equivalent to a 39–117 mm, totalizing a virtual 5X zoom, with a step between 23 and 39 mm. It is the first dual lens digital camera. The model won a gold medal in the 2006 Industrial Design Excellence Awards.[1]

There were two other models in Kodak's line of dual lens cameras that were announced shortly after the introduction of the Easyshare V570: the Easyshare V610, which was announced on April 25, 2006[2] and the Easyshare V705, which was announced on August 8, 2006.[3]

The Easyshare V610 was a 6-megapixel, Bluetooth-enabled, dual lens camera that forged the fixed focus 23 mm wide angle lens of the V570 and V705 for a 38-114mm lens. Unlike the V570, it did not include a dock.

The Easyshare V705 was a 7.1-megapixel camera that was offered in 3 body colors - black, silver, and pink. It also did not include a dock.
