It had better picture quality than my 5mp sony p-10. It was a capable camera especially for a 1mp camera. Problems: It had a quirk where a blue screen would pop up when I pushed the shutter button. It also ate batteries like crazy.

This was my first digital camera bought back in 1999. I have taken over 3,000 pictures with it and for a 1 megapixel it does very good. For a point and shoot and simple operation it is great. In a nutshell, it.s a good simple practical camera but not for serious work in the least. Problems: Battery drawer latch broke. It cost 35.00 to have it repaired by Kodak. I feel should have been repaired as a warranty item since they have had so many with this problem

If you're just looking for a camera for pics of family and such, it's fine. But if you're a serious photographer....this isn't for you. Easy to use, simple point and shoot camera. Nicely constructed metal camera. Problems: The picture quality is poor, the lag time is a bit much, and it sure does eat up batteries. Images usually come out too dark, or overwhelmed by the flash. Personally I don't like this camera, the picture quality is too poor for my uses, but like I said, if you're just ...

I have been using this camera for about 4 years now. I have used it for everything, I carry it with me everywhere I go. I have made some beautiful photos and have never found any difference in quality in the photos when enlarged. I have not done any thing above an 8x10. I have take pictures from as far as 350 yards and my zoom is wonderful. The one thing I have read with others on these reviews is that they don't have a usb for this, nime came with usb, and the tranfer is very fast. I bought ...

3 Years I have owned this model and it really got me interested in digital photograpy. I found it very easy to use and have taken some good pictures. I use it for my family and have printed - copied - and e-mailed pictures regularly. I take it with me everywhere we go as a family and even my son who is 13 years old can operate it with confidence. I have lost count of the number of photos I have taken. Problems: Snap as with the other gentleman My battery holder is brittle and small pieces ...

I wanted to add a review to comment on a problem with the camera. My father and a friend of mine has this same camera. On both cameras the battery tray has broken so it will not stay in unless you either tape it or rubber band it together. I contacted Kodak on behalf of my father, and they want to charge us for a replacement battery tray. I wouldn't object, but since BOTH cameras broke in the exact same spot in two separate households, it seems like there is a defect here. I discussed ...

I bought this camera as a simple point and shoot replacement for a 35mm Compact. I have not been disappointed.. I have taken hundreds, if not thousands of photos with this camera - from holiday snaps, to items for ebay auction listings. The holiday snaps are great - the camera handles Mediterranian colours well and produces decent images suitable for printing up to 5x7 (I've even done a few at 8x10 - and are fine except for the closest examination).. The image size is relatively small so ...

This is a simple, point and shoot camera, but the imaging quality is inconsistent. Sometimes the fixed focus lens gives great results, other times it is very sloppy. This camera has an enormous appetite for batteries. The serial transfer rates are slow, so make sure to get a CompactFlash reader. Problems: In addition to the lens, sometimes the shutter is sticky and the camera refuses to take a picture.

I bought this camera about 18 months ago while on holiday, and have since taken over 2000 photos with it. Overall construction quality is pretty solid, but let down by the flimsy battery compartment. If the camera is dropped and lands on the corner of the battery tray, there is a good chance that it will break the retaining clips. Other than that, it handles knocks and bumps remarkably well. Curiously, while most of the reviewers liked the slide-out battery tray, I though it was one of the ...
