Okay camera

jungleeravana, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: Hi, I had this kodak camera as I was really high on kodak products but boy I was so wrong. I had to buy a different camera as the feature of this camera looked perfect on the paper but actully when I started to use, it was really really bad. First and foremost, whenever I tried to use to take the picture in night, the pcitrue was blurry. I activated auto flash, I deactivated auto flash and tried all option but still the pciture was not perfect.

Don't waste your money

Mia "Mia", Amazon

  • 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. Maybe last about 100 pictures. That is A LOT of extra money. The Kodak rechargeable batteries don't last for 10 pictures so that was another worthless purchase.

Sucks batteries like water

  • 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. Now they last a little longer...but it's a pain. I have to reset the date and time every time I want to use it. If I had known about this I would have never purchased this camera.

Battery Hog

sbcheli, Ebay

  • 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. The camera dock kit that is recommended for this camera is the Series 3 kit, but it comes with a battery that doesn't fit this camera! Isn't that nice of Kodak?

Must buy Kodak rechargeable batteries

R. Wray "richwh", Amazon
8 July 2009
  • 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). We fought with them saying that those batteries aren't recommended, but now REQUIRED for this camera. Anyway, we got them (having no other choice) and sure enough they do work now...

Terrible Customer Service and Repairs

L. Mendat, Amazon
20 March 2009
  • 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. It sounds like you are standing next to a busy highway even when there is no noise around. So I jumped through all of Kodak's hoops...updated the firmware adjusted the auto focus etc., and nothing worked.

not reliable

Rose, Amazon
18 February 2009
  • 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. I sent it for repair and when it was returned me, I tried it the first time and was extremely noisy and even when in off position I could hear a high pitched whine coming from the camera. I took a few pics and all the original problem were still there.
