Summary: Boy, I tell you, that was short and very UNSWEET, bought it on the 7th, received it about a week later. It worked for a little over a week (probably would've been sooner had I used it more often, instead of taking a few pictures and putting it up.) before the darn thing powered off suddenly w/ the zoom lense stuck out like a tired dog w/ it's tongue hung out. I thought since it was Kodak it'd last for the long haul, dispate some of the reviews I'd read.
Summary: The Kodak EasyShare C142 10MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.5 Inch LCD (Red) arrived in inoperaple condition. The camera would not function at all. We tried new batteries, but it still would not function. When purchasing a used product, the seller should check the condition before selling to a customer. I would recommend purchasing new electronics from now on.
Summary: I wouldn't use this camera if you paid me to. Indeed, I was literally paid to use this camera for work, and experienced not one satisfactory moment with it. It seems to take passable photos, once you can figure out its nonsensical user interface, but good luck loading these pictures onto your computer. I'm a mac user, and maybe the experience is different for PC users, but I highly doubt it.
Summary: This camera worked great for a couple days, then suddenly wouldn't turn on anymore. I thought perhaps this was because I accidentally opened the battery compartment while the camera was still on. Sent it back to Kodak for repairs. When it came back it worked for another week or so, then one day while in the middle of using it the thing it shut off and never powered on again, even with new batteries.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my daughter's 10th birthday. I wanted a camera that took decent pictures but wouldn't have to worry about. The camera has a cheap feel to it but takes surprisingly good pictures. We had to return the first camera we received because it kept freezing up but the replacement is fine. It uses up the batteries pretty fast, so I'd recommend getting rechargeable batteries.
Summary: This is not a very high quality camera. It takes a lot of work and adjustment to take good pictures. I bought it for work because they were using 1 of my old digital Kodak cameras and was very disappointed.
