Summary: This camera worked perfect for a couple of years and then started to fall apart - literally. Some little screws fell off and camera started to lose parts. Repair would cost more than new camera, so I ought new one, not KODAK this time.
Summary: I purchased the Kodak EasyShare V610 about 1 year ago. I am someone that wants to point and shoot with little to no thought about settings or manual adjustment. I chose this camera mainly because of the 10x zoom in such a small package. The 10x zoom has been a great feature, and I have gotten some great shots outside. However,I have missed 3 major events including my son preschool graduation, his Terrific kids award ceremony and his final Kindergarten performance.
Summary: I had purchased the Kodak V410 and was very happy with it. It lasted for about a year and then the rear display stopped working. Being based in the Bahamas, I decided it wasn't worth the red tape of trying to get it repaired. So I decided to purchase the then new V610. I was satisfied with this camera also, but then the Gremlins started to show up again. My camera will no longer focus on anything!!! Still shots are blurry unless you use a tripod, and the video....
Summary: I was really disappointed in this camera. From the moment I took it out of the package until I shipped it back I really didn't find anything I liked about it. The black finish is very hard to keep clean and it feels funny in your hands. No matter how many pictures I took it took several times to get one picture that wasn't blurry. The 10x isn't all that it is cracked up to be either. Unless you can stand still and not breath the picutre will be blurry.
Summary: I am in the process to have the power unit replaced second time. After charging with the AC adapter, I could not turn it on. I sent it in for repair and was told that power PCB was bad and had to be replaced. I got it back and recharged it again, it overheated the camera and it stopped working again. So disappointed.
Summary: I have two kids 6 and 3 so I take alot of photos. I used to have a Canon 12 optical but only 3 megapixels and very bulky BUT took excellent shots indoor low light and far far away! So I bought this cause of the compact nature yet with 10 optical it was the first ever I have found. Well I am very disappointed. Indoors auditorium style with lights on this camera would only take decent shots if I did not zoom and even then they were very dark.
Summary: This camera has great features, but they don't work correctly -- bluetooth transfers have never worked and I can't get help on it. The lens is extremely fragile and broke due to normal wear and tear from being in my purse. It cost me $158 to repair. Not worth the $.
