    Great Camera for the price

    Posted .

    This was my first digital camera i purchased in September 07. It takes wonderful clear pictures. I went out to San Francisco and took pictures of the bridge and Alkatraz. Looks like they are out of a post card. However i do agree with the pictures not always coming out that clear when it is really dark. I sugest switching the mode and selecting on of the picture types. I would recomend this camera 100%. Attatched are two pictures i have taken with the camera.

    Good pics but problems

    Posted .

    I am not sure what happened to this camera but the shutter would not close. It had fresh batteries in it and just froze and then would do nothing. It took great pictures for the month that I used it, but now it will not work at all. I will write back if I get it solved.

    Wouldn't CHARGE!?

    Posted .

    I got this camera as a gift, and was able to take a couple pictures before I realized I needed to charge it. Just like the instructions said, I downloaded the software and plugged in the camera to the proper USB port. However, the camera did not charge. I left it in all day and realized that it just wasn't working out. I will be returning the camera ASAP. I would not recommend this camera to anyone.

    AWFULL

    Posted .

    I live in Las Vegas and went at night to try to get some pictures of the LV Strip, every pic I took was so dark and fuzzy you couldn't make anything out. Tried several different views and tried all the flash options, still DIDN'T work. I am returning it tomorrow! SEE ATTACHED PHOTOS.

    OK, Not Great

    Posted .

    I have owned Kodak cameras in the past, and for the most part were very satisfied with them. Not so with this one. The first thing that attracted the wife and myself to this camera was the large screen on the back. It looks really NICE! The menu system is easy to use and very intuitive. Outdoor pictures come up looking pretty good, although sometimes a little washed out. Indoors, though, my opinion changes very quickly. Pictures indoors come out very grainy unless there is a ton of light. Although it is advertised as having a Assist Focus Light, I could NOT get it to work. The face recognition was iffy too, it frequently would not recognize faces and focus on different areas. Another quirk with this camera is the battery charging. To charge the battery, you must hook up a little grey piece to the bottom, connect miniUSB to the grey, and hook other end to the computer. The camera comes with NO wall charger, a must for trips. This must be purchased seperately, but you must still use the USB cord and grey connector to plug into USB AC Adapter. TOOOOO MANY PIECES KODAK! Without any reservations, this camera will be going back tomorrow.

    You get what you pay for...

    Posted .

    I would only recommend this camera if it's for someone who is just starting out with a digital camera. I've had the Kodak DX7630 for several years and it's the best camera I've ever had. It's pic's are crystal clear! I bought this camera because I wanted something smaller that would fit in my pocket and I like the color RED just for fun. My opinion is that you get what you pay for. I took 20 pic's with this camera when it came and they were horrible! I know how to use a digital camera too. I'm not one who just opened the box and took a few pic's and decided I didn't like them. When you take a pic and then try to review the pic and then zoom it in it's very fuzzy and unclear. There is also lots of noise in all the pic's. This camera only comes with a USB cable to charge it. It doesn't not come with a wall plug or a cord to connect the camera to your TV for viewing your pic's. Most Digital camera do!!! Overall I was very disappointed with this purchase. I returned it and purchased the Casio Exilim Ex-S880 and am much happier. I've only had it 2 days but really seem to like it much better!

    okay

    Posted .

    I bought this camera because my c633 easyshare died. This was one a great price and better options. My first easy share was "easy" This one is not. On sunny days you can not see in the large screen to take pictures. You need a regular viewfinder for you eyes to look in or you just point, guess and shoot as you cannot see the screen. It does not hold as many pictures as my old one did without a memory card, which is easy to fix. The instruction book does not tell you how to set up the camera. You must go online to get that info. It does take good pictures, but I don't think they are as good as my old camera. I don't like how one chooses the settings. I happen to be at Best Buy a month later when the Kodak rep was there, and he in fact showed me a few things about the camera which did help. I think the instruction manual should be easier and have all setting in the book like my old camera did. Also it is difficult to charge. I did purchase the ac charger with the camera, but it too is difficut to use and instructions there are also vague.

    Good, but not great.

    Posted .

    In short, I had a camera of a smaller pixel size and it took much better pictures than this camera. If you are looking for overall picture quality, don't waste your money on this one. I have seen much better. However, in this camera's defense, mostly everything on this camera is pretty easy to use. The LCD screen is one of the largest around. The camera has some nice options. But for me, I was only looking for a digital camera that was easy to use, would fit neatly in my pocket. Meaning, not using some bulky carrying case. So for me, this camera fits the bill. If you have other requirements, you may want to look for a different camera.

    Great camera for the normal point and shoot

    Posted .

    This is a great camera for a normal point and shoot person. The screen is nice and large, start up time is quick (within 4 seconds), nice compact size, for being a red camera, its a nice shade of red. There are plenty of options to keep many people happy and shooting nice pictures. My only gripe is the pictures I shot in low light situations with everything set on Auto I was left with grainy pictures, not the subject so much but any darker areas behind the subject seemed to have a lot of digital camera noise. I am giving this camera to my mother for Christmas and it should be perfect for her. Normal daytime pictures turned out great and the internal memory is pretty decent as cameras go, seeing as how some cameras do not provide any internal memory. Taking 18 8MP images (if printing) or 76 2.1MP images (for web and other applications) is a great amount of images for not having a memory card included. So to stop babbling, this is a nice camera, if your in the market then check this camera out.

    Ok Camera.

    Posted .

    I got this camera for my birthday and I expected to be as good as my older canon camera. But I was disappointed. Some of the pictures came out blurry. You can't take good moving photos or pictures in the dark. It does take clear good photos from close up when you are still but a lot of people will want there camera to be able to take moving pictures. It was Ok for the price but I would have gladly paid a few more dollars for a better camera if I would have known how these pictures come out. Overall it is an Ok camera, but if you want clear, great pictures then you should buy another camera from another brand.

    So Far, So Good

    Posted .

    I bought this camera for myself after Christmas & so far it's okay. After I bought it & read the reviews, I was skeptical to use it...thought about returning it. After thinking about it for a while, I decided to try it out. I've only taken a few pictures, but so far haven't had any bad pictures. I haven't had problems w/the memory card either. I didn't use the software that it came with - that's just pointless to me. I can still download my pics on my pc & clean them up using Picasa2, which I downloaded for free. It takes the red eye out & cleans up the pics the way you want. I believe that no camera will have PERFECT pictures. I think if you take the time to learn about the camera, you should be ok. Yes, the only bad thing I have to say is that it didn't come w/a charger & it's frustrating when charging through the computer because the pc has to be on. I'm going to give it a few more shots (use it for New Years)...hopefully I won't be disappointed or I will be returning it.

    Somewhat disappointed with this camera

    Posted .

    I got this camera for Christmas '07 and found it had to be charged with a computer or buy an adapter, which I did. I think the adapter should have been included for the price. The battery life seems to be short, therefore I have to constantly charge the camera.Also the manual that came with it is not good at all. It doesn't give enough information about operating the camera. You have to go online to find out more information. The LCD screen is nice and big which I like. The pictures turned out ok. The worst thing about this camera for me was that it started to make a grinding noise as soon as it was turned on. I contacted Kodak and since it was under warranty, they told me to mail it to a repair center. I did and when I finally got it back, the paperwork showed they had to repair the lens assembly. Now I'm afraid the camera is a DUD since it already had to be repaired. I wonder what will happen to it next. I wish I had taken it back after I got it last year. I thought I would be pleased with this camera because I also have an EasyShare that I've had for 4 years and I really liked it. For it to be a Kodak, I am very disappointed. I've always liked and trused the Kodak name. Not with this camera though! I would not recommend it to anyone!! It's certainly not worht the money. I could have gotten a better camera for less money.

    Mixed Emotions

    Posted .

    I bought this for a couple reasons....pretty color(red) and huge viewing screen and it's small enough to carry in a small purse or pocket ! It's actually the size of a credit card, only thicker of course ! I also thought that the 8 mg would take better pictures than the 3 mg that I had and was I ever wrong ! Well, let's just say that this model doesn't ! However, it takes fantastic videos and I don't mean those short little clips either and the sound it picks up is amazing ! We think that it's equal to our camcorder in quality and we have a good digital camcorder ! Especially if you take the videos outside in good light ! I decided to keep this camera for that feature alone ! I'm always taking videos of the grandkids playing, etc and this is great for that ! Change the still shots to 3-5mg and they're ok.

    Good camera with some drawbacks

    Posted .

    I got this camera as a xmas gift. I couldnt wait to use it especially after I waited for so long for a digital camera. It is good camera for first time users like me. I was impressed by the fact that the camera was lightweight and slim. The 3 inch display is wonderful. The only drawback that I have with this camera is the USB port charging does not as well as the adapter. After going through the Kodak website to download the updated version of the firmware. After numerous attempts to update the firmware on my camera, I just gave up. I am sticking with the adapter to charge the battery on my camera.

    Not a good picture

    Posted .

    This is a nice looking camera; small, stylish, with a large 3 inch view finder. However I am not satisfied with the quality of the pictures. I have a Kodak DX7630, 6.1 mp that I've had for several years. The M883's picture quality is nowhere near that of the older camera. The pictures are O.K., but too noisy and soft; not the sharpness I expected from an 8.0 mp camera. I also wasn't happy that it doesn't fit the two Kodak camera docks that I already own, even with the provided tray adapter.

    DON'T DO IT - WASTE OF $$$$

    Posted .

    I received this camera for Christmas along with a leopard case with read trim – they look very cute together. I received this because I dropped my Kodak DC340 (I think that’s the right number) on Thanksgiving. I had the DC340 for about 6 years and it took way better pictures than this camera. I’ve only used my camera about 3-4 times since Christmas. I had to purchase a memory card and the AC charger; without the memory card you can only take about 3 pictures or a short short video. A few weeks ago I pulled my camera out to use it and it would not turn on so I tried to charge it. The charge light that is supposed to be on the front according to Kodak’s directions would not turn. I connected the camera via USB and AC – still no light. I emailed tech support , told them what happened and they sent me an AC adapter (not sure why since I told them I had one already); the camera would not charge with the AC adapter they sent. So I took my camera and USB adapter and cord to Best Buy. They used their display USB to prove my camera was working and it was. Then they plugged my USB into a display camera and it didn’t work. So this time I called tech support (the number is on their website) and went back and forth with them for about 2 hours. I explained that I took my camera to Best Buy and asked them to send me a USB cord and adapter – they told me I would have to pay for them! I asked to speak to a manager and all of a sudden I got disconnected so I called back and ask to speak to a manager again after explaining my situation for the umpteenth time. They ended up sending me the items I requested however when I received them and connected them to my camera the light still didn’t come on….so I’m really frustrated at this point – I got online and read a review on here that stated the charging light is the light on the BACK of the camera. I connected the camera to the AC adapter overnight and low and behold it charged!!! To those thinking of buying this camera I think it will be fine now that you know how the charging system works if you just have to have a red camera however if I knew what I know today I would never have asked for this camera. Also, buy the camera from a store who will not charge you a restocking fee – there are stores that have a 30-90 return period – this way you can test it out and return it if you want without being penalized. The battery life is really really short.

    Poor Picture Quality, Not Recommended

    Posted .

    I purchased this camera to be able to cary around in my pocket and hopefully get decent pictures from a point and shoot. The picture quality was horrible, especially for a 8MP. I have a 5 year old Olympus 3MP camera that takes much better photos. Indoors photos wer especially bad. The camera also does not come with a wall charger and had to be charge thru your computer unless you buy the extra cable. I retruned this camera after two weeks of trying different settings and different locations and still getting poor quality photos. I would definitely not recomend this camera and have invested in a the Cannon SD1000, for a little more money the picture quality is much, much better.

    Our 3rd and WORST Kodak

    Posted .

    We've had two previous Kodak EasyShare's and this one was the worst. I returned it today for a Canon Power Shot. I bought this Kodak because the two previous ones were WONDERFUL. The images were incredibly clear and it didn't take half as long to actually shoot the picture as it did with this camera. I took pictures from a wedding and graduation before returning it and even on image stability mode, the images were beyond blurry and they were very grainy. I compared pictures to two friends that owned Power Shots---their pictures were so much better. In addition, Kodak makes you purchase an adapter to be able to charge the camera from an outlet, the other two cameras came with a computer charger/image sharer that allowed you to take the charger alone and plug it into a wall or use it in conjunction with the image sharer. Even though the adapter wasn't expensive, it was still something that didn't come with the camera. I'm very disappointed because I trusted Kodak and enjoyed the two prior cameras but I would not recommend this camera.

    Poor Picture Quality

    Posted .

    Nice size, slim with really large LCD. Good software for the average need of taking pictures. It turns on fairly fast, but not too fast. I had no other quality issues (but the picture clarity) and the camera is charging well through the USP. It had no mechanical problems although it fell on the floor a couple of times. I have it for two months now and got hundred of pictures. The picture quality is really poor blurred, out of focus and is particularly visible when you zoom in a stored picture or you see it in your computer. The ISO 3200 is a joke as you can see the noise even if the picture is taken in good light conditions. The 8 MP can only spend storage bits in your computer. If you got it and you can not return it, reduce the picture size to 3 MP or less to at least save storage space. Do not even think taking pictures at low light with flash as it fails to focus. A 4 MP Sony I have for years now, takes by far clearer pictures. Finally, I tried to reduce the ISO and increase the sharpness but I got no better results.
