Price:

_
"I hadn't considered a kodak before due to the cheap feeling of the outside, but this one broke the mold with style and image quality."

"Summary:It might seem like a good choice, especially considering the price, but unfortunately it lacks performance."
_
"The only thing I am a LITTLE disappointed with is the fact that you can't charge the battery unless it is in the camera itself... but Kodak sells separate battery charges, so if you wanted to spend a little extra money, this problem could easily be fixed."
_
"Best quality, Kodak made nice and easy camera, to take picture anywhere, best prices, east to carry and storage, best"
_
"the pictures are great, the video is great (for the price anyway, i've never had a super pricey camera)."

_
"The camera is stylish and takes very nice pictures for the price."

Video

Video:
"These are just a couple of small things that are trivial, as only one thing about this camera really makes me upset- the video records in MOV."
_
"This means it will only play in apple quicktime and is not compatible with Windows Media Player or Windows Movie Maker unless you use a converter, which is really unneccesary."

"This camera is cute, compact, easy to operate without a manual and has great video quality, but...I am disapointed with picture quality."

_
"That's 3 times more than the 8 min capacity offered by most other cameras (also on 1gb card).My only complaint about the video mode is that it seems like it's impossible to completely disable the auto-focus."

_
"the pictures are great, the video is great (for the price anyway, i've never had a super pricey camera)."
