Kodak EasyShare V1253

Kodak EasyShare V1253 – A small camera with a lot to offer.
You know the old saying, good things come in small packages? Well, that is especially true for the Kodak EasyShare V1253 digital camera. This puppy is more than just a high resolution point and shoot camera. The Kodak EasyShare V1253 digital camera is one of the first point and shoot cameras to offer HD video abilities.

Point and shoot cameras have sported the video function for a while now. The only problem is, many of the produce sub par quality videos. And many of the ones that produce video quality are only good for viewing online. The Kodak EasyShare V1253 digital camera however is the exact opposite in all cases. Combine the cameras built in speaker mikes with the HD cam and you get surprisingly good results.

HD video camera aside, the Kodak EasyShare V1253 digital camera still sports plenty of still camera features as well. One such feature would be the 23 scene modes found on the Kodak EasyShare V1253 digital camera. With so many scene modes you are bound to find the perfect setting for just about any scenario. It even has a top of the line macro setting the will focus as close as two inches.
