Summary: Suggested this Kodak to a friend after she saw how well mine does. Years ago I purchased the same M530 brand new at a discounted price which was many times more than this used camera that after charging the original Kodak battery worked flawlessly. Only the wall charger was missing. No complaints on that score, well worth the price. Shipped in the time frame promised. Wonderful digitial camera for photos and videos at any price, but a total steal at this price.
Excerpt: You would think: with a name like Kodak , the digital camera field would be theirs for the taking..such a thing seems not so; with offerings from everyone from Fuji, to Nikon and Pentax,and even Samsung and Panasonic. I’ve found previous offerings from Kodak to be a bit clunky..they seemed to have built them as if to say to the consumer: ‘this is a camera ’…well, with the Easyshare M530, say no more: THIS is a camera !
Summary: I ordered this on the 16th and had it by the 20th!!! Super happy about that since it's a replacement for my moms camera that I broke (whoops!!) looks just like it. Havnt got to use it yet so I will write another review when that time comes but other than that everything seems good :) I'm only giving it 4 stars because I havnt used it
Summary: I have 3 cameras total. Was looking for a pocket camera (not a big cell phone person). This fits the bill. It works great with the Easyshare software (free download) and I can grab it on the run when I don't want to lug my larger cameras around.
After using this camera for several days, I was forced to return it because of the picture quality

Summary: I purchased this camera as a gift for mom to replace her aging 3 MP Easyshare camera. I figured that I would be safe buying the same brand, and the fact that it is 12 MP and optical zoom would just be a bonus... how wrong I was. After using the camera for several days, we discovered the pictures were very fuzzy and just didn't come out clear.
