I bought this camera back in Feb 2000 and have since then taken over 5,500 photos. Had been waiting more than a year to buy a digital camera, and when this one was released, I bought the millienium (gold) edition which included an 8mb card and a sandisk USB card reader, which is DEFINITELY faster than using the serial connection. I use Kodak NiMH rechargeable batteries which seemed to work pretty well, although this camera is extremely power hungry. For a 1 megapixel camera, it performs ...

I purchased this camera s/hand on ebay earlier this year at what I feel was a bargain at less than £100. Its my 2nd dc I also own Coolpix990 that I purchased new when they were newly released on the market. I take the DC215 everywere as i find its ideal for notes and reminders of locations etc a kind of picture diary if you like.Its got a very solid well built feel to it and it more than servse its purpose. I would certainly recomend it to a first time user who might be thinking of trying ...

This was my first (and only so far) digital camera and I paid much more for it back in 2000, than you do for a 1MP camera today. It really does a fine job for beginners, and takes great images, up to 4 X6. I print my own on an Epson C60 and take them to a photo lab. both come out good Problems: Fortunately, no problems for what I want and do.

I got it at a decent price, used the heck out of it, but didn't abuse it. Battery tray is better than the flap, especially if it is getting used allot. Really disappointed in the image sharpness. Problems: I've gone thru NimH batteries. This thing drains batteries really fast when using the LCD screen on the back for lining up shots. Thus, making battery life in the macro mode very short. The images are not very sharp. I've gotten some really sharp images in the macro mode, but the depth of ...

This was my first DC, and I can say it is a good entry level camera. Indoor pictures have a lot to be desired, some come out very dark and of low quality. On a nice sunny day, outside, this camera takes some good pictures and the LCD screen on the back is very useful. Batterys didnt last long - this thing eats them! - always take some spares if away for some time. The software supplied was average, and works well on '98 and XP. The serial cable supplied is VERY slow to upload images, I ...

I use this camera recreationally, and actually bought the Kodak/Lexmark PPM printer to go along with it. While I don't recommend the printer, I do recommend the camera. Overall, it's pretty good and easy to use and a good choice for someone just getting into digital photography. Problems: I really only have three complaints with this camera. Complaint # 1 - it eats batteries like there's no tomorrow. I use Dynacharge, which are usually pretty good, but even they don't last very long in this ...

I have made about 2000 pictures with this camera. Especially the macro option is not satisfying because it offers only a small range of sharpness. The image quality is only on average as the pictures lack of sharpness. But the camera is satisfying for beginners and occassional pohtographers as the camera is easy to use. I have mainly used this camera to create pictures for my webpage and for this purpose the camera does a good job. Problems: Sometimes the camera hangs up. The problem can be ...

This is a great begginer camera. I have taken many pictures and have recorded some great memories. I have had a lot of luck with the battery life, about two weeks, but I do use a scan disk reader. Problems: occaisonal bluring. 2x zoom is very limiting, but that is probably not a problem with just this camea.
