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.
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.
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.
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.
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: LOVED this camera until it broke one year later. I mean it completely broke. It's dead. The battery power died during a photo shoot and killed the camera. Now it won't even turn on. See my post in the forum on this page for more info. The short of it all is, do NOT buy Kodak.
