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.
Excerpt: 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 Facebook, Youtube, FLICKR and Kodak galleries (with the included USB cable).
Summary: 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 cameras we've tested this year in terms of exposure quality, and it's incredibly easy to use. Its ease of use and sub-£150 price, however, come at the expense of manual controls and exciting in-camera features.
Kodak's EasyShare M580 snaps good pictures, but it offers ho-hum features

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: Kodak digital cameras haven't exactly been feted for their contemporary, cutting edge design. So the sharp, angular detailing - partly disguising what is, in effect, another rectangular box - along with the compact, pocket-friendly proportions, ensure the M580 comes as a refreshing surprise as we heave it out of its equally slender box.
