4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat of a basic model for Kodak, April 23, 2011
This review is from: Kodak EasyShare Mini M200 10 MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.5-Inch LCD - Red (Electronics)
Kodak, after Canon, is my favorite brand of camera, due to the sturdiness of the casing and the wonderful way they have in-camera programs which other cameras require you to do on the computer. You can edit videos on the camera, clipping out frames from video, and so on. If they just added extremely high speed video, I'd be ecstatic, because I love to shoot lightning storms and then clip out the best individual frames as stills. 30 frames per second is pretty slow when it comes to lightning.

But enough about me. Like all Kodaks, this is sturdy, with excellent in-camera editing features such as panorama, video editing, touching up photos, and a variety of 'scenes', which is Kodak speak for different settings for different photo ops. It is absurdly, delightfully small---smaller than my blackberry. It's smaller than a deck of cards. It's somewhat basic in comparison to my z1485, which is basically a tiny almost-SLR. But if you want a camera to grab as you're dashing out the door, this is it.

A word on Kodaks: I went to Iraq and I wound up killing two cameras, or rather the heat did, along with the rough and tumble conditions. I think the heat is what fried them, literally, because on some days, it was 100+ by 9AM---in the shade. By noon it was unspeakable. A friend gave me a floor model, used, from a store, and that camera got kicked around, subjected to the conditions that had killed the other two cameras, the heat, the dust, and the abuse, and though by the end of the tour I had to keep the battery compartment shut with a rubber band, it still worked just fine. When I got home I upgraded to another Kodak. I gave the old one---still equipped with the rubber band----to a soldier friend, who in turn took it to Iraq with her. It came back with her in fine shape but finally back home, it gave up the ghost, yet was in good enough shape to be sold for parts on Ebay. Its successor---the much beloved V505---went to friends when I upgraded from that one, and that too performed admirably till it got fried in an electrical incident. Every Kodak I've had---and I have three now---- are tough, small, and versatile. I'm very fond of them, and all they need to do now is to make a camera that has night vision and shoots at FPS1000. That's all I ask. Until then, I've got these in my bag when I go out the door.
