Doesn't work out of the box


Doubt I would buy again

Features are fantastic

Didn't work out of the box. Got error code-lens obstructed. Was told by Kodak it needed "repaired" Should new things work

Can't beat the quality for the price


For the price, it's a very good deal. It takes very good, clear pictures. Limited in camera modes and the weight feels a bit lighter than it should, which makes me wonder about the durability of it. too early to know.

Easy To Setup,Easy to Use


Consumer review by:

A really great buy!!


This little camera takes fantastic photos and is easy to download too! Good, clear picture and very easy to use. Compact size makes it easy to take any where and the fact that it uses AA batteries means that I don't have to worry about charging it...
