I wanted to get a camera that was good enough to keep up with technology for the next couple of years. I then came upon this camera. It has 5 MP max resolution, but if you want to save space or you have a small card, it can be lowered all the way down to 1.2 megapixels. The camera comes with 32 MB internal memory, which is very nice, like if you are on a trip and you card gets full, you can easily switch to internal. I got this on Christmas, and it did not come with a memory card, and no stores were open. But i was still able to tqake 16 5MP pictures. The next day i went to target and got a 128 MB card for $60. (Not the best deal but i was anxious and had money to spend). This camera uses Sd/MMC cards (secure digital/multimedia card). the Kodak Dock is nice but it is not necessary, especially for its $80 price tag. Just but rechargeable batteries and charger for $20. I would reccomend the Kodak Easyshare starter pack along with this. It is $35, but it has bettery pack, charger, and a bag, and some other accesories.
This is as of 12/25/03 (This exact product)
Includes
USB Cable (Kodak Easyshare Dock is nice but it is not necessary)
Kodak DX4530 5MP Digital Camera
Video Cable ( for slideshows on TV)
Product manual ( i suggest you read this)
Kodak Easyshare software ( nice software, with a simple, but effective and fun editing program.)
5 sheets of trial photo paper.
Other ads and papers reguarding registration.
AS i conclude, i have one last thing for those interested in it's 10X zoom. optical zoom(3X) is the actual lens zooming in. digital zoom(3.3X) is just the camera enlarging the pixels. What is done with digital zoom is something that can be easily done on a photo editing software.

I have had this camera about 2 weeks now and I can honestly say there is not a single thing I dislike about it. I took it on a trip to Estes Park, CO and the pictures came out fantastic. The detail is amazing and the color was spot on.
I've also had no problems with the indoor quality of my pictures and what I don't like I can easily correct with my photoshop program.
The unit is lightweight and fits nice in the palm of my hand. It has 5 seperate modes (auto, sport, night, scenery and macro) and it even takes Quicktime Video!
I specifically purchased this unit becuase of the Kodak name and the cameras ability to accept SD cards. I think that CF (compactflash) is on the way out and I already had a SD card for my PPC.
The camera hooked up to my WinXP machine without any trouble and I was transferring photos and video within minutes.
Where I think this camera really shines is the Kodak Easy Share software. It lets you unload your camera, create albums, modify the photo (very basic stuff though), and even order prints online! I've already taken advantage of the online ordering and the quality is fantastic. I highly recommend you have a broadband connection though, since the file size on "best" setting is rather large.
Dont be afraid to try this camera!

I got this camera a few months ago, and absolutely love it. The picture quality is outstanding, and it's extremely easy to use. I swore I'd never get a digital camera until I could get a 5.0 MP, and I'm really glad I waited!
I've had lots of people tell me the Kodak camera docking station isn't necessary, but let me tell you, it sure is convenient to use, one button, and the pictures download to the computer. The best part is it's always charged and ready to go, no dead batteries!
You won't go wrong with this camera no matter what your photo taking experience may be!

If you don't know what an F Stop is, have no idea how shutter speed effects your photograph, or don't know aperture from temperature then this camera is for you. Kodak's Easyshare is your basic "turn it on, aim and shoot" type camera. All it takes to operate this camera is the ability to insert a battery.
The picture quality is amazing in normal lighting conditions, but does suffer a little in low light without some user knowledge or a tripod. The camera has a few features that you can tweak, such as small exposure adjustments. My favorite feature on this camera is the movie mode. Having mini movies with sound is such a joy when you want to show people something, and a still picture just doesn't cut it (like baby's first steps). I almost find I am making more movies then taking pictures these days.
I was initially unhappy at the ease of use, since I am a photography junkie that loves total control of everything. However, as time has gone by I find that I am getting exactly the types of pictures that I want to get, but I don't have to do all of the thinking anymore. If you don't mind letting the camera do most of the work then look no farther. For price, quality, and ease of use I would give this product an A+.
Lastly, I would recommend that you purchase rechargeable batteries and a charger, and also at least a 256k memory card.
Happy photographing.

Verified Purchase
I bought the Kodak 5 MP camera as an up grade for my HP 320 2MP camera. I notice another person here mention that he was displeased with his Kodak because he couldn't tell the difference between his new 5 MP camera as compared to his old 2MP camera, so he returned it. My experience is the same as his - at first. If I take a picture of my room with both cameras, I cannot tell the difference at all at casual glance simply because the 2MP camera I have does such a wonderful job of normal picture taking. I really recommend people who just want normal pictures and don't want to part with a lot of dough to stick with the 2 MP cameras, because it costs half of what a 5 MP camera costs.
However, I must stress that there IS a difference between the picture qualities of the 5MP and the 2MP camera. It is just that the difference isn't that obvious, and you have to look very carefully to see it. The 5 MP camera is definitely better and if you look at its pictures long enough, you will notice it. The main reason I bought this camera is so that I can take close-up pictures of dishes I cook so that I can show off my cooking to friends. Without a doubt, the 5 MP camera takes clearer pictures of close objects, but this is not to say that the 2 MP camera can't do it. It just doesn't do such a good job, but it does do an acceptable job - a friend said the shot of my lasagna with the 2MP camera made her mouth water. The 5 MP cameras don't do a perfect job of it either when compared with the professional pictures I see in cook books, but it is better by about 20%. You have to be picky to see the difference.
Overall, the Kodak 5 MP camera has the following major benefits over the HP 2 MP camera:
1. It has a lens cap.
2. It does short little movies.
3.
