I had this camera for well over a year. It traveled with my halfway around the globe. It's a versatile little 'point & shoot' camera even for someone like me who's been using slr's for 20 years. It's ability to go full automatic to nearly full manual is a welcome mix. The most amazing quality, in my mind, was the quality of colors in the images. I was blown away at the colors this little point & shoot delivered. On top of that, the images could be blown up to poster size with minimal ...

I used this camera for a year before I upgraded to the Kodak P880 and the picture quality is superb. I compared it to my Canon EOS 6mp rebel with a 700 dollar canon 17-40 lens and in every picture the Kodak 7630 took better pictures.With the wide angle accessory lens it still gave better pictures than the Rebel.The bottom line is always picture quality and no camera has perfect everything.For $250 it was/is a steal.If other people have had negative problems with it ,that's to bad.Something ...

This camera is crap. It was bad. It was kind of a bitter sweet camera. After a year, I replaced it with a Konica Minolta DiMAGE X60. Because of this I will never buy another Kodak product. I was not hard on this camera. Problems: 1. Battery lock fell out after 1 week of use 2. I had to carry around a screwdriver in the case in case the screws needed tightening. 3. I had to Scotch tape the sides and top because the top was coming off. 4. I got a stopwatch and counted a 4.8 second start up.

Nice looking compact camera at first glance... I decided to choose this camera over a Canon A80 at the time because of the response. When you press the shutter button, the picture is taken almost instantly, while the A80 had a delay of almost a second. But totally useless for indoor use. If you turn off flash, the pictures will just be black. When you use the built-in flash, pictures become overexposed (white faces) up until 1 meter and the flash is useless beyond 2 meters! Outdoor pictures ...

I got this camera a few months after it first came out and it is still my primary digital camera after 2 years. However, it's no longer a very good camera by today's standards and I'm considering getting a new one (Canon, Nikon, or Panasonic) for an upcoming trip. THE GOOD: - Great battery life. It easily survived three days of HEAVY usage (I consistently used the LCD screen, but was good about keeping it off when not in use). After two years, I can still fill my biggest memory card (~400 ...

This camera was a hard camera to decide to keep or not but I will keep it as a good , responisive oldie that can take amazing photos in good light. An all around winning camera for a almost outdated chip. In low light the noise and photos breakup. The speed is not good. The controls and feature set is good but if they are slow and bad in lowlight, its still just a high good camera. It can't possibly break into the great category. The great things, are the color reproduction and the great ...

Really a great camera. Has tons of options, lots of bells and whistles, and I was surprised by the amount of recording time I can get on the video mode (I got the extra 1G memory). I ran the video record for 15 minutes and finally had to stop it myself. The still picture quality is very good, and the videos are much better than I would have expected. I tried the video on some night time fireworks and was pleasantly surprised, after I figured out how to use it. It is called an EasyShare ...

Good pictures, terrible Zoom, Battery clip broke without effort, as soon as battery was placed clip snapped. this is apparently a well known problem to Kodak, a new replacement (DX7635), is about to come out????. In the meantime suck it up, or send back to kodak for a repair, which knowing Kodak well, will break again and again. Problems: see the issue with the clip, according to the store where I bought the camera, each one sold came back with a broken battery clip holder..... mmmm !
