Summary: I bought this way ahead of time to give as a christmas present. It works great except for the sound...that doesnt work...and i was not able to return because the time window closed before christmas got here.
can't get service from blueproton (seller), amazon or kodak
12 August 2013
Summary: perfect inexpensive camera if it would work. view finder went black and no longer takes photos. however, still have camera info showing. blueproton, the seller through amazon, does not accept ANY returns for ANY reason after 30 days. bought this on june 28th for my grandson who took a trip and got back a few days ago, 40 days. you can't even contact blueproton or amazon directly about it and kodak's help line doesn't work.
Summary: If you have a modern computer, forget about finding a driver for this camera. Kodak is not supporting it, and the Kodak software was not apparently updated for Windows 7. So much for the "Easy Share Software"/ Only under pressure did I get a driver for the camera. Good luck for the rest of us. The camera is made in China by a contract mfr, not American made. To be fair, America can not make cameras.
Summary: I opened the package and tried to take a picture but the button wouldn't press down.. so unless I'm that technologically challenged, it didn't appear to work. I sent it back and they refunded me.
Summary: The camera itself is very nice, easy to hold, easy to shoot. I did have a problem with it which is probably an issue only with this particular camera, not all Kodak cameras. However, the download to be able to share your photos through the computer did not work, and the EasyShare cameras from Kodak are not supported any longer. I was not able to go online and get a download.
Summary: This camera seemed really nice online, but when I received it in the mail, I was surprised to see that it is actually mostly plastic (not metal). When there are no batteries inside, it actually feels like a thin, plastic toy. The zoom was the worst. I tried zooming in on an object in the room- the item looked closer without the zoom than with it. For the price, you could find a much better camera out there.
