Summary: Good long zoom and decent photo quality. Didn't come with a spare battery but I did some checking around and the company that builds this for Kodak did not reinvent the wheel, they used a know design, a Casio np-40 battery. The Casio battery works great and is cheap.
Summary: Haven't had a chance to really use it, especially the zoom, which is what I bought it for. I had the previous model, which I loved , but it got broken. I also ordered the case and I think that will help.
Summary: I have loved this camera for the past 2-3 years. Suddenly it has started doing random odd things. Switches to video or other weird setings on it's own. I usually leave it on AUTO mode but it is far from that anymore. Sometimes I have to shut it off and restart to be able to take a pic. HELP??
Summary: I purchased this camera elsewhere but I feel compelled to write this review. I can NOT say enough great things about this camera. I had a Canon that this camera replaced. The Canon got wet and was ruined.
Summary: Love the 52x zoom. The very day I got the camera I was getting bird shots that I had only dreamed about. The camera arrived the day after the order was confirmed - really safely packed. My only complaint is there is no paper manual. One must use a cd.
Summary: I have only used the camera a few times but am impressed with how solid the camera feels. I have owned many cameras including Fuji and Panasonic super zooms and this camera is built more solidly than they were. As for picture quality it is average except inside where it is not really very good.
