Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"The movie is much higher quality, and you can zoom while filming (though at times the zoom sounds like loud scratching on metal on playback, other times you hardly notice even if there's no other background sound).Unfortunately, it has terrible battery life."
_
"Battery life-I knew the battery life wouldn't be great before I got the camera, so I'm not faulting it."
_
"There are two things to watch out for if you go for one of these slim, compact cameras: weak flash coverage and short battery capacity."
_
"Both cameras have worst then average battery life."
_
"Battery life is quite decent."
_
"i haven't found that to be a problem, but it would probably be a good idea to get an extra battery."
_
"I reccomend getting an extra battery, though, because with the bigger SD cards you can run out pretty fast."
_
"Our CX7530 had excellent battery life."
_
"com-------put in KLIC-1001(that is the battery for the V550)or put in the part # BCYKDIC7001 and you will find one for about $26 dollars and the battery for about $27 dollars This is a great camera,I am very glad I purchased it, have no regrets at all, great job Kodak."

"I have 3 small children, and it doesn't work too well for my photo needs."
_
"Missed all the holiday photo opportunities due to this problem; again, if a camera isn't there for you, all the other features are meaningless."
_
"I tend to carry it more often so I am less-frequently without the camera when a good photo opportunity arises."
_
"The photo quality was not as good as my old 3.1 Kodak Easy Share product."
_
"This is a great little camera if you do a lot of outdoor photo shoots of still objects."
_
"They really loved the large, very clear LCD screen when showing them the pics in review mode."
_
"One of my favorite features is being able to make a still photo from any video frame."
_
"Don't try to take a photo of that beautiful flower in your garden or you childs toothless smile."
_
"The button to push to actually take a picture is normal size so it's not a problem taking the picture--just reviewing the pics ect."

Photo

Photo:
"Furthermore, the management system for photos does not allow easy transfer from one album to another, creates a new album every time you upload to the online service (whether you want one or not), does not allow subfolders, loses pictures occasionally, and does not let you select where you want pictures to save on your computer when you transfer from camera to computer."
_
"I'm looking for better photos and this camera does not perform well."
_
"the prints have a clear coat protection that prevents smudges and fading -- a problem with some ink jet photos."
_
"This takes wonderful photos."
_
"With smart phones making extraordinary photos the point and shoot is passing into history however this is my favorite camera."
_
"While my husband, who is an amateur photographer has gotten some pretty good photos, my experience has been hit and miss."
_
"Outdoor photos are very good; but, the screen is difficult to view in very bright sunlight."
_
"It's extremely easy to use, takes great photos in many different modes and I use the in-camera crop feature a lot."

_

_
"The picture quality is good and it isn't difficult to use or set up."

Screen

Screen:
"The LCD screen wasn't working properly and there were some other problems."
_
"The screen is super big but the resolution of the screen is not so good but that does not matter so much because that is not the real resolution of the pics."
_
"Besides that it breaks easily (I have had mine repaired 2 times in the past month alone), the LCD screen is not of good quality."
_
"Outdoor photos are very good; but, the screen is difficult to view in very bright sunlight."
_
"It's small and lightweight, it looks good, and the display screen is large and vivid."
_
"They really loved the large, very clear LCD screen when showing them the pics in review mode."
_

Size

Size:
"I have 3 small children, and it doesn't work too well for my photo needs."
_
"Also compounding the problem is that the 7440 accomodated a larger backup, so you could get double life with it; this one takes only a second one the same size, which, as mentioned, is inadequate."
_
"Now since its a small camera the flash isn't that great as larger cameras but thats what you want a smaller camera don't you?"
_
"None of my pictures have that red eye problem...a problem that plagues many cameras this size."
_
"I will probably just live with the camera without the cover as I am happy with the performance and size, and my husband assures me that the missing port cover is not a problem."
_
"The one problem some people could have is that the buttons are very small."
_
"She absolutely loves it -- the sleek black design, compact size, and big preview screen."
_
"Love the size and the ease of use this camera."
_
"Size and weight are great -- I keep it with me all the time now!"
_
"i am a student and there are so many moments that i want to capture and this camera is perfect because:1. it's lightweight, and small."
_
"It's small and lightweight, it looks good, and the display screen is large and vivid."

Video

Video:
"- the flash is SO quick...unlike other digital cameras that take a while to take the picture- sound with the video is good...not so great when replayed on camera but when uploaded to the computer it is good- very easy to turn flash on and off with a quick press of a button on the top- turns on really quickly...fast upload- almost identical to the v530 in size, but you can tell the difference in the weight, the v550 is definately heavier- charger makes it so much better!"
_
"I love the video feature, but taking pictures indoors is horrible."
_
"So many Scene Modes to choose from, Great Optics, and believe it or not, amazing video w sound as well."
_
"I had to get video of him to be able to see him at all."
_
"Video option is great though."
_
"This camera is sleek, very user friendly and allows me to capture video and digital moments for long lasting memories."
_
"The first, is that it does take decent candid videos."
_
"Videos are sharp in good lighting, but limit your zooming because the microphone does pick up noise from the process."
