Summary: I bought it, worked fine for little more than a year and then the flash stopped working. I agree that even when it was not expensive, I expected it to work more than a year. Kodak is not a bad brand but...
Summary: I should have paid more attention to the negative reviews; the old saying you get what you pay for certainly applies here. I bought this camera one year ago this month (4-2011) and already it doesn't work.
Summary: Sterkte's review from June 2011 is on point. I agree with everything he said. The pictures are pretty good quality, but it takes 3-4 attempts to get a good picture. You have to wait about 3 seconds for the camera to focus or else you'll end up with a blurry picture.
Summary: This is the worst camera I have ever owned! I get maybe one good picture to 10 blurry ones. Unless I want to go in and change the "scene" everytime I want to take a picture of my kids this camera is worthless!
Summary: Everytime I try to charge the dumb thing it blinks a couple times and does nothing. I've had it plugged in overnight before and no charge was made. When I try to turn it on, the lens moves in and out and the screen is blank. WTF??
Summary: To those consumers shopping around to buy a simple point and shoot camera. Please do not buy the Kodak M530 this camera was made with poor quality. I had my camera in my pocket and bumped my car door. As a result, the LCD display broke and I could no longer view the pictures that I took.
Summary: I bought this camera to take to Singapore for several months of training required for my company. It took blurry pictures many of the times and required a long time to get a good focused picture.
Summary: I bought this camera for my son for Christmas, he said he had to have a green camera so we were limited on choices. He likes it because it is green and small. I feel like I wasted my money, because unless you have total bright light and whatever you are taking a picture of is so still to the point...
Summary: The camera has nice features and all for the price, but the pictures are terrible unless you have perfect lighting conditions. In low light and indoors, getting good pictures out of this camera is not easy, that's to say, much harder than it should be.
