Summary: I purchased this camera to replace an Easyshare M320 I owned and loved that my cat knocked off a table and broke. This camera has a 5X optical zoom, compared to the 3X of my broken M320. The best feature, on my old as well as this new camera, is the internal lithium ion rechargeable battery. It recharges in a few minutes, and holds a charge for days on end while taking pictures.
Kodak Digital Camera was a good camera in it's day!

Excerpt: My Kodak Digital Camera was one of the very first digital cameras on the market. It is quite large by today's standards, but it works very well. I used this camera for everything and found it to be very trustworthy. I had to purchase the expansion chips so it could take more photos, since the original capacity was somewhat limited. The camer itself is fairly attractive - coming in a flat balck color with silver trimmings.
Excerpt: This camera is easy to use and takes really nice pictures. The only gripe I have is that sometimes it is hard to find the right setting and the pictures come out blurry. Sometimes I try several settings and I still can't get it right.
I love this camera, Kodak Easyshare M381 takes crisp photos!

Excerpt: I purchased the Kodak M381 Digital Camera to capture all the events in my exciting life! It takes Crisp, clear photos. The little dial on the top lets you know if you have it set correctly. I have taken very dramatic sunset photos. I am not a very good photographer, but this camera gives me such beautiful photos. My favorite feature is the little disk that enables me to download either to my computer, or to any of those little Kiosks in the mall.
Excerpt: After goint through other budget models from other manufacturers, I decided to spend a little more to get this outstanding camera. The main problem I had with all the other cameras that I had bought was the screen images were so choppy when I moved the camera around, it was hard to close in on anyone because it was so delayed. So when I got this camera, I was very satisfied, it is still a little bit choppy at times, but much better than anything else that I used.
Excerpt: For once in my life I decided to buy a camera that wasn’t for me. I decided to buy a camera that was for someone other than myself. I figured I would be nice and so was the name hearings in these so why not try something new. I can be a very selfish consumer but this go round I decided to buy the Kodak M381 to 12.4 MP digital camera for my daughter.
Summary: The shutter lags a little, but I think that is adjustable. The pictures are so clear and the 5x optical zoom is perfect for the across the room shots. I have yet to take a really blurry picture and I am photographing children with pets. The price is right for the Megapixels and the zoom, along with everything else. It is not a "Pro Camera" but no one who is a Pro is going to buy a $100 camera anyway. Love it- Rock on Kodak!
