Eastman Kodak announced Tuesday that its new V570 digital camera, with both an optical zoom and a wide angle lens, will be available this month for $400.

Kodak is billing the V570 as the world’s first dual-lens camera. The V570, capable of 5-megapixel shots, will be on display this week at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, according to a company news release.

The V570 has a 39-millimeter to 120-mm optical zoom and a 23-mm wide angle lens, part of its Retina Dual Lens technology.

Using what it calls the “ultra-wide view” in panorama scene mode, the V570 will automatically compile a 180-degree photo by combining three separate ones, Kodak says.

The V570 is less than an inch thick, and photos are viewable through a 2.5 inch LCD. The V570 will also record TV-quality video at up to 30 frames per second using MPEG-4 compression, Kodak says.
