A little hard at the beginning. A great camera to work with. If you use sandisk to read the card it's great. Problems: eat's batteries. It is difficult in the light setting. To adjust and stay on automatic is difficult.

I LOVE this camera! It is the easiest to use of all the digital camera's i have ever used. It has Excellent image quality for a low-end camera and is one of the few in it's class with Zoom. The software is Moron-proof and is easy to connect to my laptop for field use. Is not bulky and fits in most camera bags. The 8mb on the 215z will store 57 pix in 640x480 High res. and 27 in 1024x860 High res. It's great for a begineer or someone who just wants a good basic Digital Camera! I give it 4 1/2 ...

I find that this camera is easy for me to use. The pictures do come out great if you have the camera on the tripod. Its easy to blurr them up with the slightest motion. It is the perfect camera for online auctions. Thats why I bought it. 800 pictures later and I'm still happy with it and getting better at using it. I don't wish I had spent a couple hundred more bucks for a "better" camera. Its a nice size. I bought rechargeable batteries right away and they'll get worn out putting them in ...

After using some of the higher-end Kodak cameras (DC280 & 260), and a Nikon, AGFA, I was pleasantly surprised at the picture quality! Skin tones are GREAT and up close shots are truely excellent. At $249 (Wal-Mart) - $299 (Best Buy/Circuit City) this camera is great for anyone wanting to test the waters of a digital camera. Problems: My only gripe besides the 11.4-second "in between" shots, is the 'fuzziness' of long-distance shots. Although this is a problem most low-end digital cameras ...

The Kodak DC215 is an allround good proposition - easy to use, simple menu system and reasonably good quality shots. My main concerns with it are that it seems extremely sensitive to the slightest movement as you take a shot -- and as a result MOST shots come out blurred. Unfortunately, it's quite hard to see whether the shot is blurred on its tiny LCD screen. Also, while the colour pickup is not too bad on this camera, its storage of the photos (JPEG/FPX) leaves a bit to be desired as its ...

It came bundled with a PC, I have to say I thought it would be a five minute wonder. However after some 800 images later I would say it was a really good investment. It does tend to eat batteries on transfer to PC so I got an FC reader. Problems: It packed up the camera occasionally does not come on. when it does after much fiddleing with batteries, the contents of the display are random and it resets the date / time. It's being returned to Belgium for repair by Kodak under warrenty we shall ...

I bought the Kodak DC215 right as the price came down to the $300 range, and I absolutely love it. I compared it to the HP C200 (same price), and the Kodak was by far a superior piece of equipment. Unlike alot of digital cameras, the Kodak DC215 is not a battery hog. It features an automatic shut off after a couple of minute of idle time, the zoom is easy to use, and it's slim design make it a pleasure to use. Problems: No problems encountered, it's even been dropped a couple of times and ...

I started out trying to spend as little money as possible and avoided the DC215 at first. I needed a digital camera for web work and really only needed a camera capable of 640 x 480 resolution so I purchased a largan Lmini 350 for $130 which would have worked but it has a lousy twain driver and did not download images properly. Examples: http://www.gkweb.com/500.html I took back the Largan 350 and did some more looking around and purchased an IOMagic 500 which had a higher resolution and cost ...
