I bought this camera about a month ago, and I am really pleased with it. I am a complete novice at photography, fortunately this seems to have been built with people like me in mind. Every imaginable scenario or subject has a designated setting providing the ideal picture. So if its snowing or if I am watching a fireworks display, I just have to set the camera to the relevant setting, so there is no playing around with complex manual features.
The image quality is very impressive, providing crisp and clear pictures with brilliant colours. The 10X optical zoom is also a great feature, particularly for such a reasonably priced camera.
My only real complaint is that it doesn't accomodate the larger sd storage cards (i.e. it wouldn't accept the four gig one I bought the other day) which is a shame as when you are a novice like me, it seems best to take lots of snaps and pic the best one out of a dozen efforts.
overall though, exceptionally pleased, reasonably priced, lightweight and robust, and offers a plethora of features I am still working my way through.
Purchased this camera a couple of months ago and i must say that it is rather well equipped. Good optical *10 zoom is great for those must have shots and the AF is very clear. There is a handy auto mode and a custom mode to select the correct setting for the environment (night, party, indoor, sports, snow etc). There is also a handy one touch picture transfer which is the 'Easyshare'.
The red eye setting I have found not to be so useful and on editing the photo with Kodak software provided, the red eye was not totally removed.
The lens cap is not best designed and in just two months the springs managed to come loose and the lens cap no longer attaches.
The design of the camera is good with a neat pop-up flash and compact button layout. The zoom button could be larger though especially if like me you have large hands! The lcd screen is a good size and you can switch between viewing only through the viewfinder or through lcd screen only.
The video option is also very good with clear steady picture and reasonably good sound.
Overall the camer is very good value.
