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.

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.
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.
