Easy to Use, No small expensive batteries to lose.

Summary: I plan to use this to take pictures of things I want to sell. Super high resolution and quality are unnecessary for this use. It has a very nice/functional way to turn off the flash and it stays off, I use this mode all the time. I wish my higher quality camera was as easy to use as this one.
Pros: Uses AA batteries Very easy to use, control button functions are easy to tell what they do, the on screen menus are as simple as they get. Nice display screen for the price
Cons: Nothing really it is what it is. Nothing fancy that does not cost a lot. It is not as durable looking as the $300+ camera I have but I would never expect this of a less than $100 camera.
This camera is great. It takes fantastic photos and for the price ...

Summary: This camera is great. It takes fantastic photos and for the price cannot be beaten. the only issue is that Kodak no longer officially supports the software that goes along with it so to get the EasyShare desktop application is a bit of a hassle.
Summary: O.K., replacement for a better model that was stolen. I didn't look close enough or missed the fact that it operates on AA batteries instead of rechargeable battery, $$ for batteries. Pictures are O.K, and should be O.K. for documenting work issues.
Pros: Great price, big screen, mp4 videos, uses AAs. The audio is surprisingly clear, beating my phone hands down.
Cons: As mentioned elsewhere, this brand goes overboard with compression, casing low-light images suffer in particular. Video codec is Motion JPEG, not h264, but a PC would handle that better anyway. The big screen eats batteries, but not too badly, and it has power save modes to counteract that.
Summary: I bought this camera to be used on a recent trip. Most of the pictures that it took were of great quality, however it does take quite a while to focus (maybe about 5 seconds) so it was difficult to take good shots of something that was being passed by quickly.
