My wife and I have tried various cameras, but nearly all of them result in photos where her eyes are closed. It became a bit of a family joke, but it's actually very frustrating. Several years ago her sister bought a Kodak camera and the photos were terrific, so we bought a Kodak V603 and loved it. No more closed eyes, wonderful colors, great Schneider lens, and it had a nifty little video camera included, was compact, etc. It just recently broke, so we were in the market for a new camera. Luckily, Kodak was just about to release this 580, also with a Schneider lens.

The camera arrived today, is still compact (though a little bigger than our V603), has a much larger viewing screen, and easy to use buttons. The first few photos resulted in her eyes partially closed, but once I selected the "Red-Eye Preflash" option everything was great. Photo after photo and eyes were wide open and beautiful! We're very pleased.

The video looks great and should be just as easy to pull off the camera as in earlier versions. We don't really need the 14 Megapixels (who really does?), but I guess one never knows when we might need to blow up a photo to billboard size. Also, the "blue" color is much cooler than expected -- it's really more like a steel blue. The strap took 10 seconds to put on and it took just a few minutes to navigate the directories, set the date & time, and to insert the battery and memory card (memory was purchased separately).

I suggest watching the price, because it will undoubtedly drop. Also, each time I checked the listing over the first week of sale the seller changed between Amazon and independent retailers. Something to keep in mind as you calculate shipping and return policies.

I have been spending months looking for a camera with a quality lens that was still pocket size. Most of my prior cameras had Schneider lens and I have been a long time supporter of the Kodak company so the two cameras I finally had to decide between were the z950 and the M580.
I liked the large aperture of these cameras since most people take photos indoors and I couldn't believe you would get the same photo quality on a lens the size of an erasure head. The z950 has a slightly larger lens but it also has a large housing for the camera. it is .4 inches larger in each measurement. In reviews this was a deal-breaker for many other users. I liked the idea of a larger camera but ultimately chose M580.
The time between power up and first shot is quicker. And although I cannot give specifics the burst photography is much more reliable on the M580. The z950 is quicker between photo one and two, but I have found that when you are needing to take a series of photos quickly (i.e. kids are doing something quickly) the photo taken split seconds after the first one contain the same problems as the original picture. The processing screen still shows up after the second photo but it only is there for half of a second before you get the opportunity to click again. The z950 has a 3 second delay. In today's fast paced world that is an eternity.
The last reason I chose the M580 was the button layout. I prefer the zoom buttons on the back of the unit. The dial used in the z950 work better when you have your eye pressed against a view finder. The buttons are more distinct on top of the z950. That being said I have yet to press the wrong button by mistake on the m580.

I was hesitant to buy this camera since there seemed to be very few reviews, and of those there were, half were great and the other half were terrible. Well, I am glad that I bought this camera. I am familiar with Kodak cameras, as my last camera was a Kodak Easyshare V1253. This camera is great! The flash is incredibly strong, and pictures taken come out brilliantly lit, and the colors are amazing. I took a simple picture of my kitchen, and I was amazed at how beautiful the picture looked! I didn't even realize my kitchen looked like that! Really though, I haven't found any problems with this camera yet. The video it takes is nice quality, but the camera's sound itself is quite quiet. That's to say that, when reviewing videos taken, it's hard to hear what I videotaped. BUT, I'm sure the sound will be fine once the video will be played on a computer or such. I don't have anything bad to say about this camera. I love the 8x zoom, the wide angle lens... everything. If you are not sure whether to buy this camera, I would say to definitely at least give it a try. I find going to Best Buy and playing with the cameras VERY helpful. You can hold the camera you might end up buying in your own hands, and play with the settings, and see how the general photo quality is. In conclusion, this camera is great!!

I pre-ordered this camera and was excited when I received it a couple days after its release. It was out of the box two hours before I started having problems. When I would use the date stamp feature for my photos, the camera would freeze about every 5th picture and I would have to pull the battery as all the other buttons - including the on/off button - would no longer work.

Hoping I could see past this I continued to use it. However, it would sometimes freeze after taking a picture and, like the problem with the date stamping, I would have to pull the battery. This would also result in the loss of the picture I just took.

What finally did it for me was that even with the image stabilization lens, the pictures came out terribly blurry. This is my sixth Kodak camera and the pictures taken on my 3.1 MP Kodak from 2004 were far better. I know how to work Kodak cameras and on every setting I tried, the pictures came out blurry. The Smart Capture feature seems to make the pictures overexposed. The same picture taken on Smart Capture on my Z950 came out considerably crisper with more true-to-life colors.

Due to the freezing and the blurry images, this will be the second Kodak I've ever returned. It's too bad. I really wanted to like this camera.
