Summary: I already owned an Easyshare M575, 14mp, 5x zoom, and I thought this would be a better camera. It was not as good as the M575. 1. This camera is slow. You miss a lot of action photos because of its slowness getting itself ready to shoot. 2. This camera is not as good in low light situations. 3. The picture quality is not that much better than the 14mp model to justify this purchase. I wish I had gone for a 10 or 15x zoom instead, like Nikon 8200.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace my Kodak Easyshare V1233 which I absolutely love. (It is having issues.) I expected this newer model to offer higher quality with more bells and whistles. The specific swaying review stated "you can't take a blurry picture." How incredibly wrong. I have an entire birthday party of blurred photos. (Were there an option to post them...) Pros: Posed, still shots look great, but required patience. Sleek, snazzy look and feel.
