Summary: To my wife, everything is a photo opp. She uses her iPhone 5 a lot, but I wanted to get her something with optical zoom and more pixels. This made her happy... and when mama's happy, everyone is happy.
Summary: Does everything I want it to. Have taken dozens of pictures and videos. Good color, high quality images. Telescopic video is great. The video telescoping starts where the photo telescoping ends. IE if you start video record then telescope you can bring things about 5 times closer. If you photo and telescope you can bring things about 3 times closer. If you start video with the telescope at 3 times closer you can bring it to 8 times closer.
Summary: Has some nice settings, however, it's tripod threaded hole is off center and isn't the best configuration for using a boom type tripod on a regular basis. I found the settings easy to use, and great for a basic photographer like me.
Summary: I had a another camera just like this one and dropped it on a tile floor. I liked the camera so much, that I wanted another just like it. Camera was fine in a new box but without the setup-CD. I am having difficulty in down loading the set up program from the camera or the Kodak web site.
