Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"It is sturdy enough for moderate travel, but I wouldn't put it through crazy stuff because it still has a flimsy feel in parts like the battery door."
_
"The part where the battery goes in was broken."
_
"Only complaint is it has very short battery life, but batteries are cheap."
_
"After I do, it says the battery is dead, and turns itself off."

_
"Camera is very nice, good quality when you get the right light, i dont like how it only takes batteries though, but i put rechargable batteries in and it has lasted longer then the regular batteries, and you do have to use a specific kind of batteries so please read the label under the door to where the batteries go very closely."

Image

Image:
"i got this cam because i needed one to take photos of my work for my portfolio.... my phone didnt take good enough pics.... but.. i cant even get the driver to install on my computer so i can even get the pics off of it... and you cant share photos unless the driver is installed.. and in its OS list... it goes no higher than vista... UHHGGGG so freaking frustrated.. and i cant find the software online... only updates for it.. i wish i never got this thing..."
_
"The images were not as high-quality as I would have liked and I have returned the camera for a refund."

"Nitetime pics from a distance only came out blurry, pics from airplanes failed due to light reflecting off of their wings and the audio picked up at higher elevations sounded like crowded city streets due to the wind."

"A little disappointed but at least I can attempt to take pics for special occasions like first day of school, etc."
_
"Bought this two years ago and still works excellent, love photo qualities"
_
"It seems that the software to easyshare is no longer available so the cord to easily transfer pics is useless but the SD card is effortless to access and remove."

_
"Just the right size, easy to use and fits in your pocket, takes great pics and easy to down load on to the computer."

Photo

Photo:
"after taking the photos after the 5th damaged, cut out , black ....."
_
"Once when I was backing out of a parking spot my back bumper touched the front bumper of a car waiting to get into my space; the other driver called the police, and I whipped out my trusty Kodak to take photos--there wasn't even a Dent on either car--just a quarter-sized piece of paint missing from both--and I gave the photos to my insurance company."
_
"The Kodak quality will shine here, although don't expect commercial quality photos, but for the price these cameras can capture wonderful moments from graduations, to weddings, to baby showers, etc and you can even record video with sound."
_
"Takes great photos and uses 2 AA batteries."
_
"Takes very high quality photos and very easy to use."
_
"Easy to operate and view photos."
_
"Besides that it is a great camera for what we use it for, which is taking before and after photos for home remodels."
