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 , the M580 shoots sharp and bright photos that you can print at large sizes. Now the bad news.
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
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.
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.

Summary: The Kodak EasyShare M580's plasticky body and antediluvian interface might put you off, but its pictures are engagingly vivid and punchy. If Kodak sorted out this camera's appearance and feel, the verdict might be very different

Cons: Awful interface; very limited manual controls; cheap and tacky feel.

Summary: The 8X-optical-zoom Kodak EasyShare M580 serves up great exposure quality and easy controls, at the expense of manual settings. It's a versatile camera for the price, but it falls short on exciting extras.
Pros: Superior exposure quality, 8X-optical-zoom wide-angle lens, in-camera tagging for social-networking uploads, simple operation with automated Smart Capture mode
Cons: Bare-bones feature set for a pocket megazoom, sharing features require connection to computer, image stabilisation isn't very effective, no manual controls
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 fits the bill. It's one of the best point-and-shoot compact cameras we've tested this year in terms of exposure quality, and it's incredibly easy to use.
