8x wide angle zoom lens. View larger.
Sharing pictures has never been easier than with the KODAK EASYSHARE M580 Digital Camera. The M580 Digital Camera puts the power of photography in the palm of your hand with 14 MP and an 8 X SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON wide-angle (28 mm) zoom lens in a stylish compact body less than 2cm thick. The 8x wide angle zoom lens delivers amazing flexibility allowing you to both shoot distant objects, filling the frame with just the part of the scene you want, and to capture wide angle views useful when taking pictures of groups indoors in tight spaces and capturing the drama of a spectacular horizontal landscape or vertical subject like a skyscraper or waterfall. In addition to the professional quality optics in the SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON lens, the M580 features optical image stabilization which reduces blur caused by subject movement or fast-action situations and automatically minimizes the effects of camera shake to deliver clearer, sharper pictures. And for those really dramatic vistas, select Panorama mode and the camera automatically stitches together up to 3 pictures for a seamless stunning panoramic photo. The M580 Digital Camera also has a large 3” (7.6 cm) bright LCD so you can enjoy reviewing your pictures right on the camera and HD video recording at 720p@ 30 fps so you can capture high quality movie clips too. Power comes from a Li-Ion rechargeable battery with higher voltage and energy capacity for excellent performance, and in-camera re-charging using the included cable and AC adapter is quick and convenient. All these features in a compact body that that’s less than 2 cm thick that’s all very impressive, but it’s still the ease of sharing pictures that sets this camera apart.

Face recognition. View larger.
If you’ve ever scrolled through hundreds of pictures on your camera looking for just one picture in particular, Kodak’s face recognition feature is just what you need. It’s powerful and easy to use. Using the on-camera keyboard, enter the name of any face detected during picture taking—up to 5 different people in a single picture. The next time a picture of a tagged person is taken; the camera will automatically recognize their face and assign the right name to it. A maximum of 20 different people can be added to the on-camera face registry, and up to five different poses of each person are used to increase the accuracy of their facial recognition. Once a person is recognized by facial recognition, its super quick and easy to search by name to find all the pictures of that person whenever you want.
Better pictures - automatically. View larger.
Kodak's Smart Capture feature allows you to become a better photographer in just about any environment by applying three automatic split-second processes: Intelligent scene detection-- detects and analyzes the type of scene; Intelligent capture control—automatically sets camera settings including exposure, focus and ISO for clear, sharp pictures even in low light and challenging situations; and Intelligent image processing—reduces noise and clears up dark shadows for vibrant, crisp details and true-to-life colors. KODAK PERFECT TOUCH Technology is automatically applied in Smart capture mode to provide rich detail even in dark shadows for vivid colors and richer details, and can also be applied manually as an edit tool to pictures taken in Program and Scene modes. With Smart Capture you’ll get better pictures automatically in just about any lighting condition without the worry of adjusting camera settings.

The most important thing to note is that when taking pictures the M580 does an great job in many situations; slot in an SD card charge it up and take pictures are you are rewarded with good colour and little noise on your photos when images taken in good light. The Zoom lens has a very usable wide angle when fully retracted which lets you get more of the family or the landscape in the photo and remains fairly useable out to its full 8x range; though its clearly distorted out at its maximum zoom. The large 14 megapixel resolution lets you crop the photos down which may be useful - if you do try and avoid the distortion at the far end of the zoom. Kodak touts the M580 having optical image stabilisation on the lens which reduces shake - and is fairly essential on such a long zoom. As OIS goes I found it to be fairly ineffective; and shots taken at the 8x showed some
The M580 has a large rear screen; and no optical viewfinder; I found the screen excellent in relatively dark conditions and very difficult to see in bright daylight - though to be fair when testing it i had the same issue with the also viewfinder deficient Sony NEX3KS Alpha Compact System Camera - 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS Lens - Silver. The screen sometimes showed some terrible colour casting; especially on indoor lighting or through windows but the photos taken when this happened never exhibited this.
There are some excellent scene features to help you take photos of flowers, landscapes or take portraits for example and was one especially surprising - 3 shot panoramic photo auto-stitch facility.Read more ›
Anyway the camera itself is compact and easy to use which is just as well where I am concerned. Anyone wanting in-depth technical detail & jargon better bail out of this review right now cos it ain't going to happen but I will attempt to give some useful information .
Having fiddled with that accursed wrist strap it's a relatively simple thing to assemble the charger , plug in and within an hour the camera is fully charged and you are ready to commence snapping if I may use photographic lingo. Actually taking photo's is a doddle with the "smart capture technology " which "
automatically sets camera settings including exposure, focus and ISO for clear, sharp pictures even in low light and challenging situations; and Intelligent image processing--reduces noise and clears up dark shadows for vibrant, crisp details and true-to-life colors.".What this effectively means is it frames the scene in an green perimeter on the viewfinder to give the taker a firm idea of what will be in the final picture and that it takes great pictures which indeed it does very well. The final pictures are truly stunning and without any fiddling or fussing with settings. Which may or may not put some people off depending how seriously autonomous they wish to be when taking photo`s.
There is 64MB of internal memory built, which is a tad miserly , but there's ample support for SD and SDHC memory cards.Read more ›
Doesn't feel "flimsy", the pictures are not "shaky". For instance with the Samsung it was nigh on impossible to take any shot without it being shaky or out of focus.
Plenty of different scene settings to select from. Kodak's "candle light" setting (for night time photos without flash) is the best I've come across, the colours have lovely warm tones. An other one that always works particularly well is the "back light" setting for taking shots of objects with a light (sun etc) behind them.
Excellent picture quality, easy to use. I'm a bit biased of course because I'm used to the Kodak menus but I would imagine for a first timer it would be easy.
Easy to transfer photos to your PC as well, just connect the lead and let the transfer wizard do its thing.

Camera is ok, not very good at moving shots, but for still pictures nothing to write home about. In hindsight would have preferred the canon range of products.Published on 8 Jan. 2012 by Jason
