Advantages: Small, light and easily carried with great photos.
Disadvantages: Not super great storage space.
We brought this camera a while ago along with a dock which charges the camera and allows you to easily transfer photos to a computer.
It's a great size, small enough to fit into your pocket but not so tiny that you can't see the screen properly or press the buttons. It's very light and has a wrist strap to make carrying it about easier.
The camera is 4 mega pixels, and so the photos are very clear. When up loaded onto a computer they are big too - 2304px X 1536px, so when viewing them you can see so much detail. It takes good photos in bright light too, with not a lot of glare which is good for sunny photos or snowy photos.
The camera has many different features as well, which include:
- Auto mode which automatically focuses on an object.
- Portrait, which takes good photos of faces
- Landscape which focuses on far away scenery
- Macro which takes good closeups
- And of course a video recording feature too, amongst others.
When taking macro photos, its hard to tell where to stop so that the resulting photo is clear, but when you get it right the results are fantastic.
The videos are clear too and not sticky or jumpy, although they take up quite a bit of storage space.
The camera has many different flash types as well which it automatically uses if it thinks the area is too dark. However, these can be changed and turned off if you don't need them.
The storage space is fairly good with a memory card, and many photos can be stored. Videos, as mentioned, take up a fair amount of space, but short ones are OK.
Photos can be edited from the camera itself, such as cropping before sending to the computer too which saves time and is very easy.
The screen which displays photos (and acts as a viewfinder to take pictures through) is a reasonable size and very clear, or you can use the old fashioned viewfinder at the top if you prefer. Having a choice is one feature I thought was great!
The zoom goes really far, and the quality doesn't suffer too badly on zoomed in photos which is nice.
I haven't had any problems with software, which is also a bonus! Either the memory card can be removed and inserted into the printer which then transfers the pictures to the computer (check your printer has this function first though). Or, the camera can be connected to the computer via a USB cable. You could choose to use a printer dock instead however, which I usually use. The camer sits on top and once loaded, you can press a button which immediately send them to the computer using the Kodak easyshare software. The software allows you to edit and organise images or just copy them to your computer. It doen't take long and is pretty simple too.
However, the dock is supposed to charge the camera too, which when it works is really handy. We put some rechargeable batteries in our camera from a local shop, which turned out to be a bit dodgy and now the dock doesn't charge our camera, so i'd reccommend using proper batteries which you know are from a reputable shop!
Summary: A nice, tidy camera that takes matching photos!
