Major Disappointment

M. Salfai, Amazon
13 April 2013
  • Summary: My wife bought me one of these for Christmas several years ago. It was intended to replace a cheap digital. All I can say is that this camera was a major disappointment from day one. Most photos come out blurry and totally un-useable. They look great in the 3" LCD but when you download them they look terrible.

Does not live up to expectation

MamaThree, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been a long time Kodak customer so when my old easyshare had seen its day it was time to upgrade a bit. I had problems right off the bat with this camera. It does not take clear pictures. At first I thought it was me, then upon reading reviews I noticed that we all have very similar complaints, which points to a product defect. It is also nearly impossible to take clear photos when you turn the flash off.

NEVER BUY THIS CAMERA

  • Summary: Absolutely the worst digital camera you will ever buy....went from an Kodak Easyshare 4530 with only 5.0 mp to this suppossedly better M381 with 12 mp and hate myself for doing so. The first camera with lower megapixels took far better shots...unfortunately I got it wet on Splash Mountain at Disneyworld and had to get a new one. Happy with Kodak I decided to upgrade to higher MP thinking I would get even better shots...NO!!!...not with this piece of crap camera...

Don't buy

T. Greenwood "Tom", Amazon
13 May 2010
  • Summary: This camera has a difficult time focusing... it simply doesn't. One picture in ten is actually in focus and sure it's a sharp picture, I can't deal with the ratio. The video zoom is choppy, so don't do it. I got rid of this camera.

Disappointed

P. Vandenbroek, Amazon
16 February 2010
  • Summary: I was given the Kodak Easyshare M381 as a gift. All the pictures are grainy and terrible! I thought it was a setting which needed to be changed, but after checking into that possibility, we found all the settings to be accurate. I will be taking the camera back to the store to replace it--but definitely not with another Kodak camera!

Blurry Pictures

P. Davis, Amazon
7 February 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to replace two older Kodak cameras that took excellent pictures. On average 75 - 80% of pictures taken are blurry. The camera has been sent to the factory recommended repair service twice with no improvement made to picture quality. As Kodak will not will not allow me to return/exchange the camera, I'm shopping for a non-Kodak replacement.

Just say NO!

Nickie L. Parrish "Parrini1", Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is very easy to use, light & portable. However, the picture quality is seriously lacking! The shutter time is extremely slow, and even when you take the time to be sure the face recognition box is in focus, the picture is still very grainy & blurry. Ultimately... I returned this item. Are you absolutely sure this camera is a Kodak?

Bad, Fuzzy, Out of FOUCUS

LiSam, Amazon
10 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera at a Pre-Thanksgiving Sale and was so excited to use it. Well I got home, took everything out of the box and started to shoot my two little girls. Well I was noticing that everything was blurry. So I changed the camera to blurr reduction and it was still bad. I have now had this camera for 2 weeks, and I have decided that I will be taking it back. This was the worst money every spent. My 5 megapixel took better pix than this! Very disappointed!

No Thanks

Jeff C., Amazon
23 November 2009
  • Summary: Like the first reviewer, I have been a professional for more than 30 years. I have seen point-and-shoot technology skyrocket in recent years, and have personally shot images with my previous Kodak digital that rivaled those from my expensive digital SLR. I decided to purchase the M381 to use for shooting a client event. Since the event included a rock concert, I did not want to lug around an SLR that probably would not be approved for use in an arena.
