Excerpt: My mom bought this camera for me after mine was stolen. She probably bought it because it was on sale and it was a really good price, but however cheap it was, it wasn't worth the money. I had to send it in 3 times in less than a year and the shipping cost more than the actual camera.
Summary: The Kodak Easyshare C913 9.2 MP Digital camera was the first item I have purchased through Amazon that was not what it should have been. When turned on, it shows screen with info but a black background instead of the picture view .. shutter opens but screen remains black.
Summary: Scam! I will keep my 40.00 pink slightly used camera, and yes it was listed as a working camera u just needed a new because your fingers are to big. Should have worked well a big hand could hold the bateries in just perfect.. thanks again for your 40.00 dollar unfixable camera.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive camera to use for my 3rd grade class's blog. I became impatient, and against my better judgement, ordered this Kodak. I had great luck with one of the first ones out that was fairly high-dollar, but hated the last EasyShare I had. I also hate this one. Just as my other, it takes lousy videos, and terrible pictures AND videos in anything less than very bright outdoor light. I do not recommend AT ALL.
Summary: My husband gave me this camera for Christmas. I took some pictures then and also in Jan. and the camera worked great with great pictures. Shortly after then the camera began malfunctioning. I would take a picture of my grandson throwing a ball but the picture would be of him having already thrown it....or something similar. I read all directions but still couldn't get it to work. Contacted KODAK and they were absolutely no help. Had 2 Kodaks previously.
Summary: This camera only worked for a few weeks. Most of the time it won't turn on at all. I tried several different batteries and finally got it to turn on. A few days later when I was ready to use if for my daughter's birthday, it wouldn't turn on at all. Don't buy this camera -- it's a piece of crap.
Unacknowledged defect? Cameras will not turn on/stay on

Summary: I bought an EasyShare C913 a few weeks ago. When it arrived and I installed the batteries (correctly, and that's another design flaw!) the camera would not stay on. The screen would flash, the lens would partially extend, then the camera would shut off. I packed it back up and returned it to Amazon for a replacement (which they sent UPS next-day, no charge!). The replacement camera appeared to work fine, for a few days. Now it is showing exactly the same symptom.
