I like it!,
This review is from: Kodak EasyShare C195 Digital Camera (Purple) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
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!

Try using Lithium batteries. They come in AA. They are less at Sam's. They last a lot longer than regular ones. Good luck.

personal preference I guess..I like AA batteries...readily available....and I can use rechargebles that last long. I do not like proprietary batteries. They are expensive (never had good luck with the generic knock offs) and when they die I have to wait to recharge it. With AA's I can pop in a fresh pair...

I use Sanyo Eneloop NiMH AA rechargeable batteries--they hold their charge much longer and are available on Amazon.

Use Lithium AA's,
-Last 5+ times longer
-30% lighter than reg. AA's. With 2 of these in a camera they make a difference
-10 year shelf life
-work effectively in a wide range of temps from hot to cold conditions.

I use Energizer rechargeable AA batteries, not a problem for me.

I agree with others -
Use the BLUE energizer lithium batteries. I take a LOT of photos between personal use and business use.
I date them each time I put them in to see what I am getting from them. The most is three months, but
again, I take hundreds of photos! Maybe other people don't do that many...
the best benefit of using the AA lithium blue energizers (vs li-ion), is that you can get more
almost anywhere most of the time. So, if you are on vacation and need more batteries, you aren't
trying to find a replacement li-ion at a higher cost, or missing photos because you forgot to charge
your camera! I try to keep a pack in the car at all times, and sometimes, a couple in my purse (when I am going somewhere I know I'll be taking lots of photos).
