This is a really good digital camera for quick and easy use, it has 8 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, 3 inch LCD, ISO up to 3200, digital image stabilization, 64m internal memory with a card expansion slot, auto focus, plus it also comes in silver, black and red. If you are looking to buy this camera you can get it for as cheap as £79.99p which i think is a bargain. Kodak have made taking pictures very easy to do with this camera, if you are looking for something easy to use or a first camera then this is the one to buy. I bought this camera several months ago and have not had a problem with it up to now, i find that the pictures i print from the memory card are superb quality, i am very happy with them. My ten year old sister also uses this camera at school sometimes so that just goes to show how easy it is. The only problem i have with the camera is that sometimes it can take a while to take the actual picture.
I recently purchased a M883 whilst on holiday in Australia.After the purchase I was amazed and disheartened by the negative feedback given to this camera. Thinking I had bought a lemon, I was most pleased when I printed of my first photographs, to find that they were faultless and of very good quality.I download direct to my computer and print with my trusty old Epsom (read cheap) printer.I would recommend to anyone looking for a low priced good quality camera to consider one of these.Chris, NZ
I bought one of these at the end of September 2007, attracted by the large LCD, and my previous good experence of a Kodak digital camera.
I've found that unless photos are taken in brilliant sunshine, the photos are so grainy as to be useless. This includes photos taken with a flash.
Thinking there must be a fault with the camera I contacted the Kodak customer service number provided with the camera - I had just missed the one month window of opportunity for getting a refund, so after numerous, lengthy and exasperating conversations with various non-UK call centre staff, they agreed to take a look at it. The camera was duly returned with a note saying this sort of "noise" is normal for this camera - so not only am I stuck with a camera I can't use, but also the camera dock and memory card I bought to go with it.
As the camera had only just been released in the UK when I bought it, the only reviews I could find were, I now suspect, planted by people with a vested interest in encouraging sales - take a look now, and there are many, many people who have found the same problem with "noise" as I have. I have owned other supposedly inferior digital cameras (including an earlier kodak one), and without exception, they have all taken excellent photos in all light conditions.
I feel like I have been robbed, and I would urge anyone considering buying one of these to read as many reviews as you can before throwing your money away.
