Summary: this camera takes good photos, but it is not good for taking videos. it is a little blurry on wide angle, but when you try to zoom in during taking the video, and the more you zoom, the worse the video blurr is. if you zoom clear in while videoing, you can barely see the image when you plat it back.
Summary: I had this camera for one year and it has froze up.....I went to radio shack and bought a battery for $40---half of what this camera cost......put the new battery in and the camera froze up again after 3 hours.....
Summary: Difficult with my operating system. Ubuntu Linux in particular can usually do plug and play even without accompanying software, but apparently Kodak refuses to do anything to make their products more compatible with Linux systems, even after repeated requests to do so. That's a shame, because this camera takes beautiful photos for the selling price. Also appears to reset itself to default settings when the camera is turned off, which is a nuisance.
Summary: I bought this camera just a simple point and shoot that would hopefully make family photos easy...It worked pretty good for a while then the flash stopped working. I was able to send it back to the manufacturer since it was under warranty. It was returned to me and worked pretty good for a bit, now there are some other focus issues...I don't think I would recommend this particular camera to anyone who just wants a worry free camera that takes good photos.
Summary: How do you find a simple camera anymore? I searched and searched, read the reviews, and was still disappointed with this one. I thought buying a cheaper camera meant less options... not so. (The original Sony DSC-P51 I bought in 2002 was much easier to understand, I was able to use it right away. It's big and bulky in comparison, but I sure wish that one still worked, the Sony was my dependable workhorse for online selling.
Summary: Photos are lovely. Battery life is sufficient but there is an issue with my navigation buttons. I almost have to bite the buttons to navigate through my photos and when i reach a certain date in the photo folders, the camera freezes up and i have to remove the battery and reset the whole thing.
Summary: I bought this camera with the intention that one could "easily share" photos on social media. But to my dismay, one can only do it through a personal computer or laptop, like any other camera or smartphone. It takes great pictures and I bought it at a reasonable price, but why call it an "EasyShare" when it doesn't do anything that my Android can't do? Because you're able to upload photos to the Kodak social media website? I STILL don't see the advantage in that.
After 10 pictures, a flake of something was behind the lens

Summary: Camera seems good enough but quality control must be bad. Ours started showing a flake or "hair" behind the lens after about 10 pics. Cleaned the lens well, can't see anything but it's behind the lens. When you zoom, it comes into a little bit of focus. Seems like a metal filing or something. And Amazon will only refund. We bought it for $135, now the price is up to $150. Shouldn't they just replace it? THIS ALSO ONLY TAKES MICRO SD CARDS.
Summary: Kodak EasyShare M583 14 MP Digital Camera with 8x Optical Zoom and 3-Inch LCD - Black (New Model) I purchased this camera to replace my 6 year old Kodak DX7630, which was an awesome camera. There M583 looked to be a fairly large improvement on the DX7630, smaller, lighter, more megapixels, zoom and a 28mm lens vs 35mm. Perfect! The M583 arrived quickly, but from the first dozen photos I realised that something was wrong.
