Summary: The Kodak C182 and C183 are my absolute favorite cameras because the shutter speed and clarity of the photos but they die quickly and as long as I can purchase one, I will. I gave it 3 stars because it's a great camera but it don't last long. However, I use my camera to take up to 2,000 photos a day so that may be another reason it did not last.
Excerpt: I bought this Kodak EasyShare for $59 on Black Friday at Walmart for my six year old daughter, who opened it on Christmas. It is a really easy point and shoot with very few buttons, which is good for her. It has a video camera and she really likes that. She's taken videos of her dolls and the dogs.
Excerpt: The Kodak has a great set of features on paper: priced at around , it offers a long 10x zoom and captures 12 megapixel images. But there are a few performance issues that make this camera less appealing in use. Here is a rather large point & shoot: it is 1.4 inches thick with the lens in the power off position, and a lot thicker when the lens telescopes out for use. It fits well into the hand, though, with the sizable grip providing something to hold onto.
Excerpt: The pictures are very good. I was a little disappointed that the instructions were so brief. For a first time digital camera user everything was a little more complicated for me. Even other people had issues. My biggest complaint is that it uses battery power instead of being able to recharge. Secondly, I cannot use my Easyshare software with it. The USB cord that came with it does not fit my USB port.
Summary: The image quality is decent when the photos turn out but the Smart Capture mode is INFURIATING and I'd say about 85% of the time it is automatically falsely "detecting" that it needs to be in macro mode and therefore indoor shots often turn out blurry or out of focus because I'm constantly fighting it to exit macro mode. There aren't as many "scenes" options to chose from either, so often I'm flummoxed as to where to set it to avoid using Smart Capture.
Summary: This little camera is not too complicated, and it has just enough features to provide good quality photos overall! But I am a little disappointed in the way it captures some colors though, and the Kodak Easyshare photo editing program is rather limited as well! I purchased this camera strictly to use for eBay photos and overall it does the job, but there are certain colors that it will not duplicate (turquoise, khaki, purple, green, to name a few).
Summary: Great Camera but was sold as new when there was a sticker on the bottom saying refurbished. Zoom was broken when i received it but i use it occasionally for work. so i don't care. Other than that awesome camera gotta love face recognition. Its really awesome for the price.
Summary: I was disappointed overall with my purchase because it is cheaply made and the instructions are very vague. I still have no idea how to use it properly. I need to remember the old adage, you get what you pay for. It was not really a bargain by the time I had to purchase the memory card. I was unaware that it wasn't included either. I have been looking for a camera since Christmas and this seemed like a better deal than it actually was.
