Excerpt: My wife and I bought this Kodak camera after our other Kodak camera broke. Our main motivation for buying the camera was the price. The first time we had problems with the camera was a couple of months after we got it. We are at a birthday party and the camera stopped working. Whenever we would turn it on, the lens would extend and then automatically it would retract and turn off.
Summary: I bought this camera after doing very little research that I wish I would have done. The camera worked great for about a year and then all of the sudden the camera quit working. I went to use it and took one picture and the camera just shut off. It wouldn't turn back on and I tried to recharge it but nothing. Of course the warranty was up a few days prior to this happening. This seems to be a common occurrence.
Summary: I've had the pink version of this camera for about a year. It took good pictures up until 3 days ago. It all started when the lens refused to open a couple weeks ago. I fixed that by using a trick I found online but when I tried to zoom the lens would immediately close. I figured I'd deal with this until I could get it fixed or get an upgrade camera that I've was planning on getting anyway. 3 days ago I was taking pictures of my new puppy and my other dogs.
Summary: For years I swore by Kodak. My wife dropped her old Kodak and it didn't work no more. I bought her the M341 because it will take instant pictures. Ever aim, shoot and find out the subject had moved out of the picture? Just try to take pictures of a graduation ceremony. This camera has a dial with a picture of a running man on it. Put the dial on the running man and take moving or sports pictures.It works like a film camera and takes a picture time you press the button.
Summary: I bought this camera at a great sale and was fairly pleased with it straight out of the box. This was my second EasyShare, so navigating the menu was simple. It took nice shots in brightly-lit situations, but indoor shots at my daughters' basketball games were always dark and grainy. The battery life was good for a pocket camera, but the 3x optical zoom left a lot to be desired.
Summary: This camera is absolutely horrible! I purchased it hoping that I could start making tutorials on YouTube because I get alot of requests for my polymer clay jewelry, and the video quality is LITERALLY THE WORST I'VE EVER USED!!! The focus and sound quality are absolutely awful!! I paid over $120 for this camera and I honestly would have rather stuck with my $29 Logitech web cam! Kodak's hate me for some reason .... will never buy another one!!
The video's AUDIO died after one year-the warranty expired 2 weeks ago.

Summary: Length:: 1:52 Mins I've had this camera for a year now, and just as the warranty's expired about 2 weeks ago, the audio in any videos that I take is not there anymore. Kodak said that there's a hardware error in the camera.... All in all.....the still photos were great, but, for a video camera....there were other issues. Didn't take good videos in bright light....zoom was pretty poopy.......not a great video camera....this is a better STILL camera.
Summary: Stopped working after a few months for no reason. I took a picture then five minutes later went to take another and it was dead. It was not constructed well. The screen looks scrachy and dirty that makes it hard to see your pictures.. Not happy at all with this camera. It was 50/50 if you got a blurry picture or not.
Summary: I received this camera as a gift a little more than a year ago. It just stopped working for no reason. I haven't dropped it and it has received no damage, it just stopped working. This is by far the shortest life of a digital camera I have ever had. I was incredibly disappointed in this and am never purchasing a Kodak camera again.
Summary: I received an easy share camera through Amazon for my birthday in June. It worked for my vacation in June. After that the flash stopped working. I have tried to contact kodak several times and no one responsed. It would cost me as much as a new camera to get the flash repaired.
