Kodak DC3200 User Reviews

Announced Sep 23, 2000 •
1 megapixels | 1.6 screen | 39 mm

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 ...

My first digicam too which I bought for £50 in '02 as an end-of-the-line Currys special offer. That was a real bargain then for a cam that produced really good pics. I bought a set of NiMH batteries as ordinary alkalines didn't last very long and took it everywhere in the "boot" of my Suzuki Burgman until about a year later the cam started to produce very fuzzy pics. As it was still within the year's guarantee, I had my money back as Currys had no 3200 to replace it. Traded up to a Fuji A303 ...

my first digital camera; and as it can be imagined, not as much pixel counted as todays, and so its production must be seen, through a certain eye of immagination. Otherwise pixel contrast and clarity in good light condition very good, as the mounted lenses and system produces very accurate colours. tons of batteries to be used. poor tranfer to PC via RS232. get a gig card and a nice ride. i could turn out a bang Problems: picture transfer to computer consumes 4 batteries very fast (appx. 50 ...

Like many before me, this was my first digital camera. Four years on and I still use it often and it has never failed me. I'm updating soon, and this robust dependable little camera will still be used by the local fire brigade as an evidence/scene camera, as it's very easy to use, produces great results and if it's damaged in the line of duty it can be inexpensively replaced. Problems: I did miss the tripod mount. It's amazing what you can do with a couple of rubber bands, though.

Ive taken thousands of pics with this camera. Decent resolution and exelent color under ALL conditions. Always gets the shot. Even in a totally dark room the photos look great. Best point and shoot Ive ever used. Paid $59.00 for the camera only as it came with minimal hardware.Wound up spending close to $200.00 by the time it was fully accesorised. Worth every cent!!.

Great camera for first time users. Outdoor shots are at high quality but indoor shots is not that good. the flash is too bright and the shutter speed is a bit slow. If you dont take mnay indoor shots or anything that doesnt moves too fast then this camera is for you Also can use Kodak memory cards to store heaps of phoo's Problems: 2 x Zoom is only on low resolution pictures using the Lcd screen uses up batteries a lot quicker Use rechargable batteries "Grandcell" is worth doing.

I have used the the DC3200 for 18months. The on off switch stands proud and so regularly switches on and discharges batteries. There is no lens cap. It eats batteries (20 shots for 4) and I have found the flash to be very poor i.e. always get over exposed shots. I now put my finger over part of the flash window. Its not very scientific but generally gives a better result. Problems: Battery door quickly broke (cheap plastic. I use gaffa tape. Otherwise quite reliable. Am waiting for it to die ...

Received this camera as a gift over a year ago and have taken over 1000 pictures. I have semi-solved the problem of the too bright flash for closeups by blocking off part or all of the flash with various objects. I love the large number of photos without stopping to load, and I love the instant retreiving of photos. Printer adjustments improve the photo quality. For a cheap point and shoot it is worth the cost. Problems: The only problem I have experienced that I really detest is that ...

First digital camera ever bought. Have had it for over 10 mths now Cheapest Known make in store. Problems: Batteries don't last long with the viewfinder on. Flash is way to powerful at close range. Try white paper over flash... Blured pictures when subject is moving.
