Charging

Charging:

"In addition to the pictures not being nearly as good as the previous camera, I have had problems with it not charging or holding a charge since I had it."

"The reason I had to buy a third was that my daughter accidentally tried to charge each of the cameras and unknowingly forced a KODAK camera charger cord into the ports on both, which made them both unable to charge and the one with the unbroken display would show nothing."

"We also have a Cannon digital camera that took too long for the flash to go off indoors so you missed every shot."
_
"The straw that broke the camel's back was when I took a picture indoors with adequate lighting AND flash and the picture came out almost completely black:( The camera is also very slow, the time it takes for the camera to focus, take the picture etc is very long, and you are likely to miss the shot you are looking for."
_
"It takes beautiful pictures even indoor in poor lights."
_
"I like it over all, but it takes a few seconds to load picture in screen after taking but other than that it takes great pictures indoors and out and nighttime pictures are great! "
_
"Is great indoor and outdoor."
_
"It took clear pictures in low indoor light and perfect pictures outside."
