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.

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
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...
Conclusion: OK, so the M580 is no Fujifilm F80EXR or Panasonic TZ when it comes to reliability and performance, but gets away with it - to an extent - by being cheaper than both. However it's a real shame that a very classy headline specification - 14 megapixels, 8x optical zoom in a body depth of just 25.6mm,...
Pros: Inexpensive price, slender dimensions, 8x optical zoom, HD movie capability with HDMI output, lightweight yet sturdy metal build
Cons: Top plate controls badly arranged and unnecessarily fiddly, average image quality
Conclusion: Una cámara que recomendamos a las mujeres que prefieren los gadgets de colores, ya que este equipo les permite jugar con las imágenes, pues tiene distintas herramientas como modos de escena, efectos de color y balance de blancos.
Pros: La resolución de 14 megapixeles, graba video en alta definición y el botón de Share.
Cons: El cuerpo es un poco grande y no cuenta con salida HDMI, aunque puedes adquirir un adaptador por separado.
