Frustrating Waste of Time/$

Summary: Bought this some time ago as a back-up point shoot camera and now it's time for back-up and guess what? Same problems described by so many others - horrible battery life and full lock-ups, especially when you have a good shot in front of you.
Summary: This has turned out to be an extremely disappointing camera from an even more disappointing company. The good: takes really nice outdoor photos. The bad: horrbile battery life, even when using the Kodak CRV3 batteries. These batteries are about $8.00 a pop and I replace mine at least once a month.
Summary: This camera takes pictures that are ok...good for the price of the camera. But, it goes through batteries at a ridiculous rate...even when it's not being used. Somehow, it uses up the batteries even when it is turned off. I have taken to removing the batteries after each use.
Summary: A friend bought this camera for me originally, and I loved it and used it all the time. Then I dropped it in the sand at the beach and broke it. I replaced it with a "better" camera, but I hated that one because it was too complicated and bulky.
Summary: This thing eats NiMH batteries like they were alkalines, only now did I find out that you should only use Lithium batteries. Furthermore, when this camera is on it makes strange swishy fan noises... Wouldn't recommend.
Summary: Thrilled with this camera. Takes great pictures, so far the batteries included have held up (about 100 shots) and fairly simple to use. One minor ittitation, the playback of the videos shot in the widescreen HD setting will not play on my computer despite getting the most updated version of...
Summary: While this camera takes pretty decent pictures, it's going to end up costing you quite a bit more than the initial price of the camera. It goes through regular AA batteries like crazy! You can't even get through one family event without needing to replace the batteries.
Summary: After a lot of debate on what digital camera to purchase, we finally decided on this one to replace our old Kodak (DX7440) and have been very pleased. These Kodak cameras are very easy to use, with just the right amount of options for somebody that is not simply defined to the "auto" settings.
Summary: I have owned this camera since January & have LOVED it! It takes beautiful pictures. The images are sharp & clean, the colors vibrant. It has been easy to use. I particularly like the ISO feature for shooting in low-light situations.
Summary: We got two of these for my boys and BOTH of them after 3 months would not take more than 1-2 pictures with FRESH AA batteries. Called Kodak and they said we needed to use the Kodak KLIC-8000 rechargeables with them (as RECOMMENDED on the packaging).
