The Kodak EasyShare V705 digital camera updates the existing EasyShare V570 model, which marked the debut of Kodak's twin-lens design concept. Both cameras include a 39 - 117mm optical zoom lens, and a secondary 23mm fixed focal-length lens, each coupled to their own CCD image sensor. Where the V570 used two five megapixel imagers, the V705 bumps the resolution to seven megapixels. Alongside the change of imager, the ISO sensitivity range has also been adjusted slightly, with the minimum ISO now being 50 - just slightly lower.

Most other features of the new Kodak V705 look to be similar to the original camera, including a 2.5" LCD display with 230,000 pixels, choice of three metering modes, five white balance modes, a built-in flash strobe good to 2.2 meters (or 3.1 meters with the wide-angle lens), 20 scene modes for ease of use, and the ability to record movies in QuickTime MPEG4 format. Images and movies are both stored on Secure Digital cards, or 32MB of built-in memory. Power comes courtesy of a proprietary Lithium Ion battery. The Kodak EasyShare V705 goes on sale from September 2006.
