Kodak struck out with the V1003
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This was my second Kodak digital camera. I loved the first one. It was easy to use, took great pictures and would store lots of pictures. At first glance in the store this one looked just as easy to use and operate. Plus I loved the color choices. Sadly that turned out to be the only thing I like about the camera. I was told at the store the camera had the same storage capacity as the other camera. When I got it home it would only store a few pictures. The...
Excerpt: I wanted to like this camera, I really did because they are a local company in my area. But the overall picture quality and features just are not satisfactory compared to other cameras in this price point. Kodak was late to the digital camera age, and this camera shows. In sunlight cinditions, picture and color quality are good. But with low light conditions, it's grainy and quality is unacceptable.
Excerpt: This camera is the worst! It's advertised as a basic point and shoot. It features are very basic, it's a 10 mp camera with 3x optical zoom. It can also take video. We purchased this camera on sale to be our primary camera. This camera was sold as being very good at taking pictures both inside and outside. When we tested it in the store it seemed to perform as advertised. We bought it on sale at Target for around $100.
Summary: The V1003 is my third Kodak camera. The first two went to our children. The picture quality was good only in bright light situations. The flash did not provide adequate light indoors. I resorted to taking pictures indoors without the flash for better results. Blurring and grainy pictures led me to Kodak for help. They were useful in assisting me in syncing my flash to the camera but results were only slightly better.
Summary: The day I got this camera I took a lot of pictures and it worked nice but they were kinda blury and did not do well with movement in the picture! As time went by I realized that this camera really sucked! After a year the battery would not stay charged so my reaction was that the battery just needed to be replaced so I ordered a new battery! But it still would not charge more than 1 bar!
Summary: I received this camera as a gift and had to send it in three times to be fixed. (Yes, I am EXTREMELY careful with my cameras) First, the lens would not go back inside. Second, because it would not charge. Third, for the lens again. I used it once after it got sent back and it broke again. A waste of time.
Summary: I dont know if the reason this camera took very poor quality pictures was because it was refurbished. The camera wouldnt focus correctly. Most of the pictures in low light areas where all blurry. I had a Kodak before where this wasnt a problem. This camera would warn you the picture was blurry but wouldnt correct it. I wouldnt recommend this camera to anyone.
Summary: lets u film movies in HD mode one problem is the movie uses 700GB thats bigger then a dvd for less then 20 minutes worth lenth . I wanted to save theese to cd - r rom but the movie I made with the camera where too big just the same size as a hollywood dvd . the other problem was Downloading the movie to my pc after dueing so the movie kept freezing up on my pc when playing. Can any body tell me why it skips on my pc.
Summary: Kodak EasyShare V1003 10MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Midnight Black) You cannot use the anti-blur mode with any of the other modes. It seems very sensitive to movement. If you use the anti-blur mode and want to take a close up (or any other 20+ modes, e.g. landscape, sport), you are out of luck for anti-blur. I find this really annoying. I'm certainly not going to carry around a tripod for everyday, ordinary pictures.
Summary: I had the same problem with the LCD screen. I had the camera just 3 months or so and it cracked. I had it in a pocket in my purse, so it was not without some protection. After reading about all the hassles with Kodak customer service, I really don't want to go thru the trouble of mailing it off, etc..... I had an EasyShare a few years ago that worked just lovely, so that is why I bought this one. But no more Kodak products for me.
