After using this camera for several days, I was forced to return it because of the picture quality
8 January 2014
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.
Summary: The salesman said that the product had usage but not that she had been ill-treated both, the screen too scratched, i had to change to a new and the lens, in a very bad state of truth, they should review its products well before they are sold
Summary: I have bought it for my wife and we're disappointed. Picture quality is OK but build quality is very poor. The battery apartment cover got loose after a month, not to mention bad pixel on the screen from the very beginning. Also autofocus works all the time making noise... No wonder kodak gave up camera business.
Summary: Shortly after receiving this camera as a gift, I began noticing that it had a major flaw. The 12 megapixel lens produced brilliant pictures indoors, however, when taken outdoors and used in natural light, every photo became tarnished with faint, pinkish streaks. Every other feature on the camera has worked fine, but the poor outdoor image quality has persuaded me to never buy a Kodak product again.
Summary: I really, really dislike this camera. I use it mainly for close-ups of plants and flowers and for short-distance display shots, so others that use it for other reasons may have a different experience. One of my main beefs is poor color rendition in the SmartCapture mode. Even in Flower mode, yellows are too bright, saturated, and sickly. You have to go through the Menu to get into Macro mode, something I use all the time.
Summary: I bought this around Christmas time last year to replace a 10-year-old Canon digital camera. I wish I still had the camera from 2001. It took better pictures and was easier to use. This Kodak is clumsily designed. It's easy to open the cover and knock the battery out of it. The power button is in an awkward position.
Summary: I actually returned this camera because it was just too inconvenient to use; the design of the buttons means that each must be pressed very hard, in a very specific place/way in order for the function to register.
Summary: This camera was a Christmas present for my teenage daughter. The picture quality was good for her use, she had no trouble uploading photos, etc. Unfortunately, after 4 months use it simply refuses to turn on--Battery is charged, the camera turns on, then right back off again. She is heartbroken. No, it wasn't dropped. It has a Kodak battery, and she used Kodak charging equipment designed for this camera.
Summary: Quality of the camera faded about months into usage. I started taking pictures and they started becoming blurry, especially whenever outside and from a distance. The camera's ability to take a close-up shot is good, granted you have proper sun lit lightening; however, go inside and you have a blur. I think the uploading was fairly easy as well. The video camera quality is so bad because you could hear a buzzing sound and the sound quality was bad.
Summary: Why we returned it: -The "Smart Capture" feature made 90% of the photos I took look "blown out" (white faces w/no depth). That meant that I had to figure out which Scene I wanted to use before each photo I took and that takes TIME! -The shape of the camera got in the way of my taking beautiful pictures. Sure, it's a handy size for sticking in your back pocket (if you like to do that sort of thing with a camera!
