Summary: This is an awesome camera. It takes wonderful pictures and is sooo easy to use. I always get lots of comments as to how great my pictures always look. I print out my pictures and use them in cards and for gifts.
Summary: This is my first digital camera, which I have shoot over 3,600 pictures for the past 21 months. The pictures are overwhelming if the settings are correct. If you depend on the Auto Mode you will end up with many shots that are sub par.
great potential but it's the little quirks that kill it

Summary: Kodak DC265 is fine for medium/long range subjects. However, because the viewfinder and the lens are off-center, you invariably get off-center results - unless you use the LCD as your main viewfinder (this eats battery life and the display resolution makes it hard to make critical shot decisions).
Summary: I did alot of research on digital cameras before settling on this one. I purchased the DC265 with the lens kit (fun to play with) and a 32MB card with PCMCIA adapter. The PCMCIA adapter is excellent and works very easily with my PowerBook G3 (OS9) and Windows 95 and 98 laptops I also use.
Summary: I've had this camera for 4 months, so I think I know it. PROS: GREAT picture quality for 5x7 or 8x10 prints (rivals my 35mm Canon EOS, which I have sold on ebay). Small but solid feel to it. Now comes with NiMH batteries which last a long time, and comes with a plug-in charger.
Summary: Kodak = Pictures, and this camera just goes to show it. I had a Canon VGA camera. It was very basic, it didn't even have a flash. It was terrible. We'd only get mediocre pictures and it had to be the middle of the day. This camera is amazing. I've only had it a few days and I love it.
Summary: Like this camera, but as with all Kodaks, the battery('s) could have better options. Friends have Sony Mavica's, and the rechargable NiMH Pak gives so much of a better option. If Kodak is going to continue in this direction, they should at least put out a set of Li-ion rechargables with a recharger...
Summary: Being new to the digital world and not sure about which path to take, I decided to play safe and go with the company that pioneered it. The first few pictures that I took amazed me, and also my friends. One of my friends is a pro.
Summary: I love it. I just ordered a 64MB CF card for it to get more than 30 pics on the 16MB card. Never had a problem with any of it. Swap between 8 and 16 cards now using both the PCMCIA adapter and the USB cable and have done some video output.
Summary: I have had one for about 2 months and cons are starting to outwiegh the pros. The viewfinder came with plastic shavings inside of it, after pressing the shutter, it takes seconds to take the photo, almost all motion is blured and it changes red to a pinkish color sometimes.
