Color: Red
Length: 4:47 Mins
Arrived promptly, well packaged. No missing parts. Nothing broken nor scratched.

I wanted a decent, cheap camera with a video function. Something that I could put in my pocket, leave in the Jeep and not be too distressed if it was stolen or broken. This camera, for the price, does a good job. Other reviewers have done an excellent job of combing over every detail so I will not repeat.

For $50, it's going to be hard to find a camera that offers more than this one. So, although it is not perfect nor the best, the features for the price get this item 5 stars.

I hope this video will give you an idea of what the camera looks like and some of its functions. Due to the length, I had to minimize the file size. I hope the detail is acceptable.

For best viewing, click Full Screen, the X in the lower right hand corner, after the video starts.


If you want to see how this camera takes basic video in the lowest format(I had Movie Maker downgrade the video for Amazon review) use this Amazon link for my review of Wigwam socks: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1NZKNHDK8CQ6W/ref=cm_cr_rdp_per


I ordered in early May, it is now Sept 3rd. This camera continues to work well. It has taken some abuse being in my Jeep. I have put groceries on it, it hits the floor when I put on the brakes too fast and sometimes I leave the Jeep sitting in the sun. It has survived a 7 year old playing with it. I have dropped it more than once. I like using AA batteries.

If there is one issue, and it's not a biggie, is that sometimes I must press the shutter button several times to get clear details on a closeup. Even my Canon SX50, Powershot and Lumix cameras have this issue....so, no problem, just the only negative I have noticed.

What I needed:

- A camera that would take good quality pictures for site surveys (Information Systems), I take pictures of building layouts, network closets, server racks, etc.
- Needed to take AA Batteries, I keep this in my tool box and don't ever want to worry about whether or not my camera specific battery is charged. I always keep my toolbox stocked with charged Eneloop batteries and the ability to use those was a must.
- Needed to take standard SDHC memory card
- Needed to be relatively small
- Needed to be able to take pictures in low light situations

How does this camera do with the above needs:
- I have been able to take decent pictures, I have not had near as much issue with blurry images as I had with my last Sony camera, however I would not use this camera to get crisp shots of moving targets. Some pictures have come out clean and crisp, yet others would leave a little to be desired. (They DO work for my needs)
- Low light situations are better than I have experienced with some other cameras, however due to the lower shutter speed you have to make sure you hold the camera very still or you will get blurry pictures ... I think this is pretty normal though. The flash works very well, however if too close to an object you can expect some white out.
- I was able to take pictures during the day of moving cars outside my porch (40mph speed limit) ... I was able to get good crisp pictures of those moving vehicals during the day, at night they were blurry.

The camera itself is very nice, easy to hold, easy to shoot. I did have a problem with it which is probably an issue only with this particular camera, not all Kodak cameras. However, the download to be able to share your photos through the computer did not work, and the EasyShare cameras from Kodak are not supported any longer. I was not able to go online and get a download. Because I needed the camera for my part-time work, and that work included being able to download photos to a website, I could not use the camera. Amazon, however, was very generous in refunding the purchase price of this item.

For the price, it's a good value. It's small enough to fit in a pocket, doesn't take special batteries that can be hard to find, and reads chips much faster the Kodak Z740 that I had previous. Battery life is within the acceptable range, and since it takes two AA batteries, it's easy to haul extra. Picture quality is pretty good for a point and shoot. Took me a while to figure out how some of the features worked. Still not a fan of how pictures are uploaded to the computer, although the load to facebook an flickr is seamless. I got it as an interim camera to use until I can get the DSLR I want but will probably continue to use it both because it's so easy to stick in a pocket and carry with everywhere, and to help frame pictures with the bigger camera.

Love it! It's perfect for carrying in my purse as it takes little room and it is there for those "Kodak Moments" when I need it. Love my Kodak Z981 even more, but it's large enough that I have to carry it separately - and do just that when I know I'm going to be taking pictures.
