The m853 a very reliable digital camera.I bought mine last year as an upgrade and its never let me down.It does not deliver professional video results-and its not meant to.This is a camera ideal for days out,fun weekends.My favourite thing about this cam is the fact it charges via a computer,so while I'm on the net it fills up!no more having to buy batteries every other day.Aslong as you switch the camera off when its not being used,the battery won't need charging for a week or so,sometimes even longer ,depending on usage..The kodak m853 comes in five lovely colours, black, silver, espresso,white and red (me being a proud owner of a red rose one) The dials on the top are very straight forward to use - i especially find the digital image stabilization very useful which prevents
the effect of the camera shaking or 'blurry look'. Considering its features Its good value as a camera investment.FIVE STARS
I have to give great praise to this little camera, it has been worth every penny, I've had it for around two years and I have had no problems with it what so ever. It has captured many great memories on nights out and has seen many outings, have to admit it has been dropped a fair few times and it seems to have withstood the falls quite well. The picture quality is excellent, and photos turn out clear and most of the time in focus. The screen is of a good size and you can easily see what your taking. I wouldn't recommend this camera for more professional work but as a camera you can take out with you to capture your day/night outtings its perfect. The simple use of the SD means you can transfer photos from the camera straight to your computer/ printing station within seconds. Its easy layout and quick review of photos is excellent! With its cheap price tag, good quality photo's and compact size, I would recommend this camera 100%!
Upon recieving this present for my birthday last year, I quickly noticed that this camera is very tidy with a good layout. When you purchase the camera you also get a wide range of extras including a carry case, charger, multi regional adaptors, USB cables and a mount for charging. When trying to use it the first time it was very simple, with a clear instruction manual. The LCD screen on the back of the camera is also quite large, quite unlike many of the less expensive cameras at the time. The optical zoom is also sufficient enough for a small compact digital camera such as this.
In terms of price range you could expect to see this camera at £50 to £65 at the moment, though it is a slightly older model now therefore some maybe available in clearance reduced even further!
Some basic information on the camera I missed out, it's a 8.2 megapixel camera with 6 capturing modes, one basic video capture mode, then 5 others including Auto, Digital Image Stabilisation mode (reducing shakes and movement), Close-up mode (quite good for the generic myspace photo), Portrait (mainly for full frame photos encompassing alot) and a High ISO setting for catching photos at very low lighting conditions.
After using this camera to take a multitude of photos from holidays and nights out I decided I needed to put them onto my computer. This was relatively simple with the USB cables being available and the software being very simple to use.
I recieved this digital camera as a present during the Christmas of 2007. The 8 Mega Pixel digital camera is not too reliable. Not for every day use. May I say, I am not entirely thrilled with it. I have had some problems with it, and five months on I'm considering on getting another camera. First problem is, it takes pictures by its self with out me clicking the shutter. This maybe a faulty product, but it doesn't do Kodak any justice. The second problem I've had with it, was the lens got jammed some how, and it stopped working for a month. I'm not sure what caused the jamming, but it did it my its self. I was not in the slightest impressed. The lens is now lose and wiggly. Another fault is the flash doesn't work some of the time. What use is that?
The good points however, the quality of pictures is incredible The menu is relatively easy to use, and if you delete pictures by mistake then it's easy to undo. The camera comes in various colours, such as silver, black, and red. It takes MicroSD cards to store the pictures, I'd reccommend an 8gb one if you take a lot of pictures. I find that the Kodak software crashes a lot on my Windows Vista laptop. And its user interface is quite hard to use. Quite unorganized. Overall I'd say it is a decent camera, however if you have the option of getting another camera take the chance!
