Summary: The Kodak EasyShare M580 is one of several low-cost, mid-zoom, compact point-and-shoot cameras offered this year. It's a comfortable size and weight, and has some stylish touches and a nice sturdy feeling, and it also has a good range of features. The smart capture and face recognition are accurate and easy to use. The Kodak software is also easy to use and makes sharing photos simple.
This camera’s best feature is its ability to take very good pictures and videos.
Overall this digital camera is easy to use and produces high quality photos and video. It’s small and takes a bit to getting used to; at least holding it the proper way, but still makes for a great 14MP camera. There aren’t many 14MP cameras you can get for this price of $139.99 which is available Geeks.com. This camera is a great all-around camera for someone looking to take high quality pictures and videos, while still being able to fit it in your pocket.
Summary: The good news that I found with my Kodak EasyShare M580 review is that its image quality is outstanding. With its 14 megapixels of resolution , the M580 shoots sharp and bright photos that you can print at large sizes.
Now the bad news. My Kodak EasyShare M580 review reveals that this camera's response times -- especially its shot to shot delays and shutter lag -- may cause some problems with shooting fast-moving subjects.
Pros: Outstanding image quality, Good mix of manual control and automatic features, Interesting body colors, Lens fully retracts when camera is powered down, Easy to manage and sort photos in the camera
Cons: Shot to shot delays are poor, Shutter lag can be a problem at times, Menu structure takes some getting used to, "Mode" button and shutter button are too close together
Excerpt: If you want a camera that takes great photos and has a larger-than-normal optical zoom range, the 8X-optical-zoom Kodak EasyShare M580 ($170) fits the bill. It’s one of the best point-and-shoot cameras we’ve tested this year in terms of exposure quality, and it’s incredibly easy to use. Its ease of use and sub-$200 price, however, come at the expense of manual controls and exciting in-camera features.
Excerpt: Quote from review: “The Kodak Easyshare M580 is a new entry-level camera with some advanced features, including a wide-angle 8x zoom lens, 14 megapixel sensor, HD video and a large 3 inch LCD screen.
