I agree, this is a very nice camera. It takes nice, high quality pictures and videos. It's easy to use, with a nice large screen, and plenty of memory. The face recognition feature is something I have never encountered before, and I really like it - it makes it really easy to find pictures.

The only con to this camera is the use of AA batteries. It does go through them relatively quickly, so if you are going to be shooting all day, you really must carry a supply of them with you. It's a prejudice, but I do prefer rechargeable cameras.

But, in spite of that, it's a really nice camera and I like it a lot!

So far, I am pleased with this digital camera. Regular AA batteries don't last long, but went to AA Lithium batteries and no problems. I like the 3" screen and picture taking is easy. Pictures are clear and sharp.

This is such a great little camera. I had a Kodak C633 before that I loved but wanted to upgrade. This takes such sharp pictures and has even more features then my last one. It also has more zoom on it then my old one did and more mega pixels. Love the face finder and it seemed to take great pictures indoors. I also love the color of this camera it is a nice shade of purple. For the people who complain about the batteries going dead quickly the way to solve that is use rechargable batteries!! This is a great little investment, I highly recommend it.

This little camera fits easily in a back pocket or purse, which is why I got it. It doesn't come with a manual but is pretty easy to figure out. Getting to know the adjustments, light for example, takes a little practice but the learning curve is pretty fast. A wonderful, compact camera that takes great pictures. The easy share feature is fantastic. Just tag the photo and when uploading, the photos will automatically be sent to social media apps while also being uploaded to the computer photo program. This camera is perfect for young people just starting out with photography, as well as experienced photographers who like to have a camera with them but not schlep around the equipment. I have a Nikon D90 but do not take it with me everywhere I go. The C195 in my purse allows me to be able to take photos anywhere! Love the color purple!

After buying a Nikon Cool Pics to replace my broken Kodak EasyShare, I was very disappointed. I could never get a clear picture from the Nikon. So, we checked out Amazon and found this great EasyShare! I really enjoy using this camera. The pictures are generally very crisp and the "smart capture" feature is very helpful.
The only disappointment I have is that the batteries and the memory card are in the same compartment. So, every time I remove the memory card, the batteries become loose.
However, this camera is very easy to use, and takes great photos and video.

I bought this for my 20 year old daughter for Christmas. It was a much nicer camera then I expected. I have a 700.00 camera and the photo quality was just as good if not better than my own camera, mine is a few years older but for 79.00 it was an amazing very easy to use camera. She loves face book and this camera makes it easy to share pictures online. Small, it fits easily into her purse but has a nice large screen for viewing! Very user friendly! JUST POINT AND SHOOT! Highly recommend as an everyday take anywhere camera!

I have been using a Kodak Z1275 for a couple of years and I loved it! It was 14MP and full of features, most of which I eventually learned how to use. I regularly had photos blown up to poster size or printed on pillow cases and blankets. They were always crisp and clear when I used the automatic setting. Unfortunately, Kodak does not make that camera any longer. (My beloved camera fell off the back of a chair when taking photos two weekends ago so it is no longer working.)

I looked for a Kodak camera with the same features. What I found was the C195. It is not exactly the same (e.g. 5x optical zoom vs. the Z1275 have 3X optical and another 5x digital), but most of the settings were exactly like the camera I loved. It even uses 2 AA batteries and is the same size (pocket-worthy). Despite noticing some dust under the display on the rear, I was thrilled with the first four test photos so I registered the camera the same day it arrived from Amazon.

I did not really take "normal" photos until this past weekend. I took 647 photos and videos while on a trip to Disney. As my 4GB memory card filled up I decided to look for bad photos and delete them to make extra space. That is when I noticed that some of the pictures looked blurry. I wear glasses so I asked several other people for their opinions and they agreed. I thought it might be related to the dust under 1/8 of the screen on the back, but when I downloaded the photos to my computer I found that every 4th, 5th, or 6th photo was horribly blurry. That was very frustrating, but also very sad as many of those photos were once-in-a-lifetime shots (e.g. my wife making very close eye contact with one of the Boys II Men singers). I am sending this camera back to Amazon tomorrow. I am not going to buy another C-series camera from Kodak. Those moments cannot be replaced.

The camera itself is not really the problem. Kodak is the problem because you cannot download the software for this camera from their website anymore and they no longer support this camera. As well you cannot upload the software from this camera to your computer either! All it gives is error messages. You cannot use the USB that came with the camera because it does not work to transfer pictures to your computer unless you have the software installed and as I've previously mentioned that opportunity no longer exists.

All you can do is use a memory card and that is not included with the camera. I would not buy this camera again nor would I ever recommend it to anyone. Also they do not provide a full instruction booklet with this camera! They only provide you with a small leaflet that has 6 shorts steps. 1. Load the batteries. 2. Turn on the camera. 3. Set date/time/language. 4. Take picture. 5. Review picture. 6. Install software (should I say it again, this does NOT work!). Bottom line, buy a different camera and save yourself a headache.

Kodak is a world famous company with a great reputation so this is a big disappointment to me. I'm sure they have many great products so if you want a Kodak camera buy a different make/model.

Manufacturer no longer supports this camera. I purchased it but cannot upload my pictures from it. A total waste of money.

I have had this camera for about a month. It makes great pictures and videos but it does eat the batteries. That is my only complaint.
