I have had this camera for nearly four years and it has not missed a beat. I have moved on to other digicams but this still holds pride of place on my desk sitting in its docking station connected to the computer. It is now used by my 8yo son. It still takes good pics. Problems: The original software does not work with Windows XP. Downloaded the latest version but its not as easy to use as the original. The Kodak battery packs are a bit tempermental as sometimes we will get over 100 shots per ...

This is the second Digital Camera have owned. I am most pleased with the DX3600. I replaced the battery pack with separate rechargeables and put a 64MB card in. This meets my needs. I really appreciate the close-up feature (I know you have to do bit of fiddling to get this mode) The results I have obtained of flowers, plants and insects have, after cropping, been as good as those from my rather large 35mm and its specialist lenses. Portrait and landscape photos have given exceptionally good ...

I was quite unimpressed with this camera. I have had it for about 2 years now. I did not expect miracles as it doesnt have any SLR-like features, but I was still dissapointed in the picture quality and poor auto-focus on this model. The navigation and menu are easy to use and I think the docking system is great for keeping the battery charged (even though it only lasts 4 shots). It would be a good camera for someone who wants to take long distance shots in bright daylight, or just pictures of ...

I’m not happy with this camera. It has two serious functional use problems. 1. The selector dial on top of the camera turns too easily and is always rotating to movie mode or some other setting. This happens continuously there should be some kind of lock on the dial. Chances are when you pull it up to shoot it won’t be on the setting you need. 2. The ready light is right next to the view finder and it effectively blinds your viewing eye when trying to take flash pictures in very low light ...

Great camera! it is cheap, it has zoom lenses, not using to much power. it was my first digital camera. I make 500 photos with this camera before it broke. I think because of a cold weather, we had about - 15 -25 C. A sad story. Anyway great camera. + Good prise, records movies with sound, good LCD screen... - Starting slow, capcturing pictures slow, to big, to easy to use (no fun)... beware of the cold weather brothers Problems: Its broken.

It's a lighweight camera in terms of construction, wouldn't like to be too rough with it and it certainly has easy to use features, I love the ability to take little videos, although the sound quality isn't that great - but for the price that's OK, can't expect too much. Software has been fine - didn't go with the docking station but I haven't missed it - HOWEVER major problems with battery life (very tempremental) - if I could be assured the docking station would recectify this problem I'd ...

We quite like this camera - it's low fuss and easy to use. We've used it for about 18 months and taken 1000+ shots with it. It's a pocketable size and works well in kids' hands - this is not true of the Ixus and others. Movie mode is cute but uses lots of picture memory. Focus seems to be pretty effective, exposures are sometimes a little on the bright side. Problems: Batteries are a problem, it tends to be quite hungry. Charging through the supplied dock is inconvenient. The build quality is ...

An e-bay purchase. I am 100% satisfied with the camera and its features. It is the top-rated camera in its class (2mp) by Consumer Reports (my purchasing bible). Here are a couple of recommendations/pointers if you are considering the purchase: - Get NiMh batteries and a charger (pretty inexpensive on-line or elsewhere). Camera seems to work faster, and batteries last much longer than NiCd. - I have read complaints about docking station. You don't need it for battery charging if you ...

I am pleased with my DX3600. I've had it for about a year and get compliments about pictures I've taken with it. I do find that the screen is impossible to see if you are outside in sunlight. Pictures have to be composed through the veiwfinder and you don't always get what you see through the veiwfinder. Problems: camera burns through batteries. if you buy this camera, be sure to buy rechargeables and carry extra batteries with you. I also find that if I turn the camera off after taking a ...

I owned DX3600 for 1 1/2 years now, bought it Dec of 2001. The sales agent get it directly from their display window because they have no stocks available the agent explained to me. I used it for taking pictures of my first baby and capture all his moments with this cool camera, I burned the picture in CDRs and play (like Slide-shows) them on my DVD player (JPEG viewer capable), it's nice to view the pics on TV and it's economically wise to store pics on CDs rather than to purchased a film ...
