Excerpt: Hubby purchased this camera to replace my olympus stylus waterproof camera that died. It takes good general family photos. It does not do well from the back row of the dance recital (pictures were blurry and lighting bad). Previously had another Easyshare that I was pleased with. Have also had difficulty charging the battery - left it in the charger for a couple of days and found it only had half a charge when I went to use it.
Excerpt: I will never purchase a Kodak easyshare camera again. I have owned 3. Two gifts and one I purchased myself. They seem easy enough, and they are, but what a pain their charging system is. Not ONE of the three cameras docking system can be used on the others, and I no sooner put batteries in the camera when that darn red light comes on saying I have no charge. I tried contacting Kodak and got the run around.
The Kodak Easy Share Camera isnt all its cracked up to be

Excerpt: I am reviewing hte Kodak EasyShare M550 Digital Camera. In my personal experience I had bad luck with this camera. They advertise it as being such a good camera but the only problem is that it breaks after a few months. I have found this to be true with other Kodak Cameras as well. I have friends who own them and have broken and the warranty isnt any good either. Luckily one of my friends broke within 30 days so Wal Mart swapped it for her but I dont know how long...
Excerpt: bought this, for some inane reason that I'm thinking about now, for the fact I can share on Facebook. A stupid reason I know, as iphoto has a facebook button that easily lets you share pictures. That's the least of my problems with this camera. First, it's a little bulky and didn't even come with a camera strap. But the main problem is it is too tempermental.
Excerpt: THe Kodak easy share camera has disappointed me yet again. I really hated the one I had and sold it at a garage sale but as fate would have it my boyfriend had a newer one that looks sleeker and fancier than the one I had, plus he usually pays more for things and gets nicer stuff than I do so I thought maybe his camera would be better. WRONG! It is even a bigger pain in the behind. The photos don't autimatically go to disk where I can just pop them in my computer and go.
Excerpt: I bought this camera for my mother for Christmas. I ended up returning it and getting a different brand instead. I tried it out first. I was looking for something very simple, easy to use. My mother isn't much into technology, but loves her digital camera. Design cons-- First, the on button is recessed. Good for not accidentally turning on. Not so good if you have problems with your hands....
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised by the image quality out of this camera. The lens is sharp and the images it produces are clean, even when viewed at 100% zoom (1:1). Then there is the interface. Every time this camera boots up, it goes into Automatic mode, meaning you have to jump through the clunky menu to get to program mode. Then it forgets your image preferences such as vivid colors. Why would they not put the option to return to previous mode.... why????
Summary: First I was sent the wrong color, I bought this camera because of the recharging battery, the view through the back to take pic's sucks, it is fuzzy, so you don't know if you are even going to get a good pic. the pic's taken are ok, nothing special, Might be good for a kid, but I am not at all impressed, it should be a $20.00 camera not $80.00.
Summary: I don't think I've ever reviewed a product online before, but there are several things I wish I had known before making this purchase. 1. The pictures are rather grainy. 2. There is no way to get a date stamp to automatically print on each picture. You have to manually add it to every picture. With two young boys, I take a lot of pictures and always used the date stamp with my old camera so that I could easily keep track of when the pictures were taken.
