This was my very first digital camera. I had it for 2 1/2 years and took thousands of pictures before it was replaced by a Canon Powershot S3 IS. I still keep the Kodak but I find that it does not appear to be functioning as well. The first two years were great. It took magnificant closeups and wonderful outdoor shots.

We had this camera as a simple snapsht camera and seemed to always find ourselves having to tweak it to get enough light for any of the settings to give us clear pictures.

Great for outdoor and natural light. Excellent detail and color outdoors. Easy to use, nice docking system. Problems: Major White-balance problem.

The problem was easily fixed with simple photo editing, but a big pain when going through hundreds of photo's of our baby boy. Features leave much to be desired for anyone looking for creativity, but its fine for point and shoot.
