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: 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: 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).
Summary: I've owned this camera since Christmas 2008 and I would agree with the other reviewers. It takes great pictures but that's where it stops. Once I tried videos I realized that there was a lot of audio noise on the recording.
Summary: I loved the camera at first, the features are great and all was well. I had it for 3 months and the trouble began on Christmas day! it shuts down, locks up and got funny lines on the LCD for no reason.
