A old Kodak camera for fuss-free photos
1

I have been a avid fan of Kodak's fixed focal length digial cameras for a few years now, so I added a 2000 DC3200 to my collection.

With the recent announcement that Kodak will soon stop making cameras these old models are worth tracking down on eBay or at thrift stores.

The DC3200 while it only is a 1MP camera and with a rather slow f3.6 39mm fixed focal length lens can take quite nice photos for such a old camera perfect for email or Facebook usage.

Despite only having a 39mm lens. It still takes landscape and interior shots nicely. I don't miss having wide-angle capability.

Controls are very easy-with a slide switch for the mode and very few capture settings. There is no manual or cloudy WB setting or ISO setting though.

Build quality-good with a large easy to hold design and a optical VF.

Problems:

No tripod mount and no USB-only has a serial connection. These days ou can of course use a card reader.
