Kodak M341 Lens information

The M341 includes a built in lens with a focal range of 35-175mm giving it a 5.0 x zoom which might not be ideal but it will be helpful in some conditions.

At it's widest 35mm, it will have an aperture of f3.0 and that's quite sluggish and not very good in low light situations and you will likely find it hard to capture a shallow depth of field. You will probably also need to up your ISO producing noisy photos. At the long end, 175mm comes at f4.8 making it pretty sluggish and you will have to use slower shutter speeds.

Kodak M341 Connectivity

The M341 has the following connectivity:

  • USB Yes

Digital cameras that feature NFC or Bluetooth compatibility can easily be controlled wirelessly with smartphones. You can send files and at times adjust camera settings without the hassle of connecting directly with the camera.

Certain apps also stream a Liveview and release the shutter when you are not close to the camera. If the camera contains a HDMI out, it could be hooked up to an external display. A good number of cameras will allow you to charge the battery pack through the USB port.

Kodak M341 Video information

The highest possible video quality on the Kodak M341 is 640 x 480 and it can save in Motion JPEG file format. 480p is awful by today's requirements. You should strive for at least FUll HD quality for good video. The body does not offer a mic or headphone socket so you get zero control over your sound. It is probably a better idea to shop for an alternative camera in case you require good sound in your videos.
