Summary: Lack of an eyepiece viewer makes shake free photography difficult. With an eyepiece the operators forehead is in contact with and steadies the camera. Without viewer the picture crispness is reduced.
Summary: This camera does not take good close-ups of anything. When you zoom in on something the picture gets fuzzy. My other camera was much better. It was also a Kodak easyshare. It was a 3010 and it took amazing pictures. You didn't have the same one so I had to get the 5010. I am not pleased with the quality photos I am getting.
Summary: For someone who is moving around taking pictures and snapping one after another, this camera is not for you...too heavy! Weight is unbelievably too much when you have to handle the camera and take pictures with one hand.
Summary: I was excited to get this camera as I had great expectations for the 14mp capability. Like the other reviews, the biggest disappointment is how l-o-n-g it takes to process the shot on the memory card so you can take the next shot. If you want to take stills for use for products like cards, magnets, t-shirts etc.
Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare 5010 has been hammered in reviews on other review sites more for what it isn't than for what it is. Fact is, no $250 camera is going to compete with a $1000 pro camera for either quality or bells and whistles. I can't comment on it's video capabilities because I never use them, but as a retired part-time pro who has used some fairly sophisticated hardware over the years, I can say it is a highly competent picture taker.
Summary: Three stars stands for "It's Okay" in the Amazon review system.... Just "okay" I must say, I'd love to see Kodak be the number one USA digital camera maker, they have been in the photo industry so very long and have been a respected camera company for decades. Sticker on the bottom says this one is made in Indonesia.
Summary: A friend of mine asked the other day why anyone would buy a camera when their iphone took such quality pictures. Now this guy isn't a rube who thinks an iphone is the best quality out there, he knows that there are expensive cameras that take professional quality pictures are out there, DSLRs they are called. He wasn't dismissing those as much as he was questioning the need for the point and shoot models.
Summary: Kodak hat es bei der Erstellung der Kamera Z5010 etwas zu gut gemeint bei der Entwicklung des Autoeinstellung. Ich habe die Kamera gekauft weil ich für den Urlaub eine Kamera haben wollte die schnell zum Einsatz kommen kann und nicht besondere Einstellungen braucht. Da diese an die Qualität von SLR Kameras nicht kommt war mir schon bewusst.
