unhappy with kodak easy share camera


i bought the kodak easyshare camera it worked ok for a few pictures then i couldnt get it to turn back on tried different batteries still nothing sent it to get fixed by kodak three times and when i got it back same thing happened i would not recommend it to anyone it is a very poor quality camera

Nothing about it

Short battery life

Consumer review by:

Functional camera for everyday use.


One touch for uploading to facebook, flickr, youtube, ORKUT, and Kodak web gallery ; Takes very good quality photos

awkward position of zoom makes it difficult to get good up-close shots. On and off button is diffcult to push

Nothing but the best


I ordered this item to present as a gift. I have no doubts that it will live up to anyone's expectations of a camera of this size. I have one not the same model but same make. Still performing great after 7 years.

Bang 4 Buck


If anyone else comes on here griping about how this or any camera takes bad pictures, complaining about the light, etc. Just remember you read this and first and know to use the software that comes with the camera to correct most flaws that are typical...

First of all, the camera looks nice. I'm a male and this thing is a dark, midnight blue, just like us guys like. The ergonomics are good. It's not thin all the way across like my friends Olympus is which makes it easier to hold without the hand...

I already said get outa here but I do have a small gripe with UPS, when ever they've delivered just one package in the past, they just drop it in front of your door for anyone to pickup for themselves. Only once, did I ever find a note on my door...

Kodak EasyShare C195 Digital Camera Great Deal


This camera takes great pics! It is easy to use and has lots of features. Just remember to order the optional SD memory if you want to take more than 8 pictures before you download them.

Consumer review by:

Great little camera


This camera came with a case, 4gb sdhc card, lens protector. My son is very happy with his own camera now.

3" screen, great pictures, video & the extras

None so far

Bought as a gift for my wife


Click the share button, then connect the Camera to your PC to see the camera turn off for no reason.. Need those pictures? Guess you better mount the SD card to an external reader. Other then that, good camera if you didn't buy it for its selling...

Great Camera, clear clean pictures of good quality, fast shutter time and great features ; Feels Made Well. Nice Color. Nice Size. Fits well in both male and female hands. Easy to navigate after you use it for afew minutes ; If it 'worked as it should'...

Power Button Is Hard To Hit At Times, especially for women with nails ; One VERY IRRITATING ISSUE is that when we plug the camera into the computer the camera shuts off making it impossible to transfer, I unplug it from the computer and it turns back...

Consumer review by:

High compression really ruins the image


This is a 14-MP camera, but, due to Kodak's famously aggressive compression (<2MB per image), image quality is no better than from a low-end 8-MP camera (if that). And it is totally unnecessary - a 2-GB card (which costs less than a Big Mac meal)...

Cheap, uses AA batteries, has face detection

JPEG compression is way too aggressive - gives the image an unpleasant look in the details

Super Camera/Super Price & Package


Bought for my 87 year old mother who was still using 35mm film. Way to go Granny!

Simplicity, LARGE 3" viewscreen, virtually automatic point and shoot. Does exactly what it is suppose to do with 14+ megapixel results

Somewhat "plastic" look to it, but get over it

Consumer review by:

Woks but


Good photosGood conectivityBad Materials : the plastic is so cheapPoor memory size : before buy this cam need buy the memoryNot good face detectionLack of photo effects
