Summary: With smart phones making extraordinary photos the point and shoot is passing into history however this is my favorite camera. Most important it has an optical viewfinder. An absolute necessity in daylight. Why cameras with LCD view finders are given good reviews I have no idea. They are useless in daylight. Even the so called new ones are still all but useless. Sad Kodak is no longer making cameras. This takes wonderful photos.
Excerpt: I am having trouble downloading my pictures from the loading dock. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. I am considering returning it. I had no problems with my previous Kodak. I do not like the way the V550 digital camera attaches to the loading dock. It does take good pictures and I love the size.
Summary: If Kodak had much, much better software, I would rave about this camera. The camera itself is very easy to use and has nice features. The Kodak Easyshare software, on the other hand, is the single worst software I've ever encountered and makes dealing with the photos a nightmare. The software is slow... and I mean SLOW. It can take HOURS to upload, sort, and label just a few photos.
Summary: This was my first digital camera that I purchased in 2005. I bought a refurbished one for almost 3/4 of the retail price, which was a great deal. As of 2009, I still have this camera. It has served every purpose needed. The thing I like most about this camera is that it starts up in about 1 second, and takes a picture very quickly. I am always sniper shooting people. It is on the bigger and heavier side, but when it came out it was the real deal.
Summary: This my second one. I destroyed the first one I owned and searched the internet to find another one. I bought an 8 megapixel kodak, but didn't like it nearly as much. I finally found a refurbished one and bought it immediately.
Summary: this camera worked well, until the lens stopped working one day. now it just makes a grinding noise. from looking online, this is a common problem. the outside is metal, but the gears inside are just soft plastic.
Summary: This camera is awesome. I love the fact that now I can carry my camera with me everyday and not have to lug an extra carrying case. The pictures are sharp and clear and it it easy to use. I do suggest using the wrist strap as my husband had a hard time with the "smallness" of the camera. I did not find it hard to use or handle. The picture on the LCD is clear and easy to see in all lighting conditions.
Summary: I bought this camera as a general snapshot camera for work (I take photos of whiteboards with diagrams), after-work fun, and family events. I use some photos to publish on the web or use for company websites so good, crisp graphics for web-display was important. Also, the camera needed to be very small and portable to keep in my pocket and available.
Summary: If you want a compact "point-and-shoot" camera that is one of the easiest to use and has a great 2.5" display, then you can't go wrong with this one. I've had it for couple of weeks and have shot about 200 pictures under various conditions. The display is the best I have seen so far; and in my experience with digital cameras, the display is really important because you end up sharing more of pictures right there on the camera's built-in screen than any other way.
Summary: i bought one for my wife and i am using it just as much as she does until my P880 arrives. i just love the Kodak colors--rich and vibrant. my wide likes it because it performs well and is stylish to boot! this camera works well with the Kodak easyshare printer. it prints without need for a computer in seconds. if hooked to a computer, you can send e-mails at the touch of a button.
