This camera is mostly used by my wife to photograph her elemenatry school science students as they work on lab excercises. Her class room has a combination of flourescent and natural light, and the Smart Scence mode nails the exposure just about every time. I also use the camera when dragging around my SLR is impractical. Takes very very good pictures. Problems: The LCD display is suitable for composing a shot in bright sunlight however, using it in PASM in bright sunlight is impractical ...

Purchased this as a low cost pocket camera, not expecting much, and it surprised me. On paper the specification looks pretty good, but my experience with Kodak has usually left me a little disapointed especially with sensor performance (usually a bit on noisy side and not sharp). This must be one of the good Kodak models, as low light performance and resolution are reasonable and definitely better than other Kodak pocket digitals I have used. Movie mode is reasonable too. Problems: Focus ...

Picked this up as a manager's offer at Curry's Digital for £90 and was amazed by the versatility and features. The 5x zoom is excellent. Within a week I took it to the US and took over 1000 shots and have some brilliant results. However, it soon became apparent that it could not cope with high contrast of bright sunshine and shadows and many pictures taken on the Auto settings were far too dark. I found myself having to use manual control after a few days which was a bind (my wife used our ...

I've owned and used this camera for 6 months now. I have a carrying case that attaches to my belt. I take it with me pretty much every day as I'm involved with an environmental watch group. I don't enjoy the results when using the flash indoors, but as a fill flash outside, it works pretty good. With plenty of light, it's a great camera. It's price, x5 optical zoom, stitch feature and manual controls are it's shining attributes. I've dropped it a couple of times (powered down, lens in) ...

I have owned this camera for 3 months and have used it in many different settings (outdoor, indoor, still, action, low light etc.). I am very impressed by the quality of the pictures and the many camera features which, by the way, were not all mentioned in the DPreview. The focus is fast even in low light (something very important to me) and the on-camera controls are so easy to use. I personally like the joystick control on back of the camera - it gives much better tactile feedback when ...

After owning the canon A640 10MP and a Pentax ist DL DSLR I must say the Kodak C875 is a awesome camera. The image quality is much sharper with awesome texture, then both mentioned camera's and the detail of the c875 excels against the canon A640 and Pentax IST DL. Images are well exposed with great definition, detail, sharpness and color. Granted the Pentax ist DL will excel in low light, I am comparing the C875 and the Pentax IST DL in normal day light performance. As we all know DSLR's ...

I bought mine as a 'carry anywhere' cam for those times when I don't want to carry my DSLR. This is a little larger than the slim pocketable cams but it has good features and produces a very good 'out of the camera' image. I like the manual control and the x5 optical zoom is much handier than a x3. As will many cam's of its genre it does not have a viewfinder, but even so, all my outdoor shots have been crisp and blur free, well exposed and with strong punchy colours. I took a lakeside shot ...

I received this for Christmas after "casually" mentioning to my SO that my Lumix was too large to carry around every day and would like a good pocket digital. Even after dropping hints about Canon and Panasonic models, she ended up going to Walmart (!) and letting the salesperson talk her into the C875. At first, it was, "oh crap, a Kodak," but after using and abusing this camera for the last 4 days, I am impressed with it's build and features. Image quality is very good. That I can ...
