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: Bottom line: If you're shooting nature photos and want a sub-$200 option, my Kodak EasyShare M580 review shows that its image quality is tough to match in this price range. During my review of the Kodak EasyShare M580, I found that the image quality in this model is among the best you'll find in a...
Pros: Outstanding image quality, Good mix of manual control and automatic features
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 14-Megapixel Kodak EasyShare M580 is a stylish and compact digicam that has made it even easier to share your images. This camera allows you to tag your images inside the camera, allowing you to connect the camera to your computer and automatically upload your images with the tags intact, to...
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
Pros: Vivid colours and crisp-looking detail; better-than-expected 8x zoom.
Cons: Awful interface; very limited manual controls; cheap and tacky feel.
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.

Conclusion: 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
Summary: The Kodak Easyshare M580 may be a good looking pocket snapper but there are plenty more models on the shelves for anyone hoping to reel in a good deal, with just about every other manufacturer fielding nigh identical 12MP or 14MP 'high zoom' models and Panasonic probably being the first name you...
