Easy to Use, No small expensive batteries to lose.


I plan to use this to take pictures of things I want to sell. Super high resolution and quality are unnecessary for this use. It has a very nice/functional way to turn off the flash and it stays off, I use this mode all the time. I wish my higher...

Uses AA batteries ; Very easy to use, control button functions are easy to tell what they do, the on screen menus are as simple as they get ; Nice display screen for the price

Nothing really it is what it is ; Nothing fancy that does not cost a lot ; It is not as durable looking as the $300+ camera I have but I would never expect this of a less than $100 camera

Little Camera that could


Great price, big screen, mp4 videos, uses AAs ; The audio is surprisingly clear, beating my phone hands down

As mentioned elsewhere, this brand goes overboard with compression, casing low-light images suffer in particular ; Video codec is Motion JPEG, not h264, but a PC would handle that better anyway ; The big screen eats batteries, but not too badly, and it...

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...

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...

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

Another Kodak Lemon


I am no fan of Kodak digital cameras. I have owned two Kodak Easy Share cameras (only because they are one of the few cameras being sold that you can use AA batteries for and I am very anti-battery pack) and both have been terrible. This camera is no...

Easy to use. Auto settings

Battery Life. Shutter Lag. Washed out pictures. Zoom
