EasyShare V1273 Overview
The EasyShare V1273 is a very compact camera so there is not a lot to talk about, but we will go over the basics. We received the dark gray version of the V1273, on the front you have your lens that has a 3x optical zoom and a 5x digital zoom. On the left side of the camera there is a small part that sticks out for the lanyard. It is weird that this piece sticks out, usually we see the lanyard clip flush with the side of the camera.
Moving around to the back of the camera you have a nice large 3-inch high resolution touch screen LCD. Also on the back are 3 buttons, review, menu, and info. Finally you have the zoom in and zoom out flicker button. Even though there are a few buttons most of your controls will be done on the 3-inch LCD.
Flipping the camera over on the bottom you have the typical camera mount and the battery compartment that also has your external storage inside of it. This camera uses the typical SD card slot, but can support SDHC cards as well.
Finally on the top of the camera is the power button and take picture button. The power button will light up when you power the camera on.
