Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"My camera has always had the problem detecting the batteries...sometimes I have to rotate the switch on and off several times before it is ready to shoot, and at first, it fooled me into thinking I just had dead rechargeables."
_
"Also, the battery life is absolutely horrible."
_
"The broken two had similar histories - minor knocks broke the miniscule plastic retaining tabs on the battery cover (causing endless nuisance improvising ways to hold the cover on), and later both cameras just suddenly stopped working."
_
"The camera seems to have a fairly high threshold for 'dead', and so on rechargables this camera conks out well before the battery is actually flat."
_
"I have the WORST time with the batteries for this camera!"
_
"I put some relatively fresh batteries in, put it in my pocket, and then found out I had accidentally turned it on and the batteries were dead."
_
"The battery door is easy for my daughter to open and hard for my arthritic hands, but you don't want it popping open."
_
"I have resorted to the very expensive lithium batteries, as I was able to use the camera over a few day span using them."
_
"The camera seems to have a fairly high threshold for 'dead', and so on rechargables this camera conks out well before the battery is actually flat."
_
"I use rechargeable batteries and they last a good amount of time, have never died in the middle of an event or anything."
_
"Easy to use, great battery life (with rechargable) and very durable."

Image

Image:
"For example, if you ever try to take a photo of a sunset or thundercloud, you will be very upset, because this camera doesn't understand when you want it to work like a plain old normal camera and not try to bump up the exposure."
_
"It's kinda hard to accept those tips and expect great pictures since so much of trying to capture great images is trial and error."
_
"Never worked and I am very disappointed in it as Kodak has always been such a great manufacturer for photo stuff"
_
"I bought my Kodak Easyshare C340 a little over a year ago, and have been using it primarily as a tool for photos I upload to my website (see link in my Amazon profile for photos taken with this camera).For an occasional user like me (1 - 2 photo sessions a month), I've found the C340 to be a great choice."
_
"Second, in high-light or low-light situations, it is almost impossible to see anything useful in the digital viewer: the viewer is very washed out or very dark (even though you can be reasonably certain the final image will turn out well).At the time I bought this unit, I felt it was the best quality unit available in its price range."
_
"The software that comes with the package is easy to install and makes sharing pics and composing albums fun."
_
"Technically speaking, this camera has quite good exposure latitude, being able to turn a dusk photo into a daylight looking one, when on a tripod."

Photo

Photo:
"It uses way too many batteries and does not take good close up photos."
_
"With the exception of a few photos which were a little out of focus due to, I believe, operator error the photos have been wonderful."
_
"It takes great quality photos with good detail and color."
_
"My previous Kodak was a great camera and perfect for my needs - family photos, eBay, and an occasional creative endeavor like a greeting card."
_
"The photos are generally good quality, but there are several major drawbacks."
_
"When I compare printed photos from this camera with other 5MP cameras, I find the quality superior."
_
"This camera is perfect for someone who wants good quality prints as well as the opportunity to email photos without having to take a lot of time to learn how to use it."
