Does anyone know any thing good or bad about the Kodak Easyshare. I want a camera that I can take good pics with to share and has good quality prints. So many out there, and I'm a digital dummy! Thanks for any feedback : )
i just recently bought a canon easy shot A95, i bought it off the internet at a great price, there is a site called dpreview.com where you can click on any camera and read an in depth and customer reviews, mine is 5megapixels, the highter the mp the better the picture. This site will then also give you all the sites where u can buy your camera and the prices, it's great, i have not seen my camera cheaper anywhere else. i love it.
I have the kodak easy share thing and I love it. It is so easy to use(and I am a complete computer dummy). Mine is an easy sharedx6440. My mom just bought another cheaper model and it works just as well. She has used it on vacations and taken some great pics! The camera she had before didn't take good scenic shots and this works good for everything. Mine even has video, I'm not sure if all the models do though. The software is pretty simple too.
i just went lookign b/c its the only thing on my list for santa. the best buy guy told me they have a whole rack of returns, all sony. told me the newest cannons, sd200 and sd300, $300 and $400 respectively are the best technology out there. they are 3.2 mp and i forget whet the sd300 is. they have digix technology which makes for a faster recycle time btw pics. none of the other companies have come up with something to compete with digix. so other than the 2 canons with digix, the rest are all comparable. i have a kodak now, its 4 years old and never had aproblem, its just old and slow and big and heavy so i want a new one.
once he said that about the digix i didnt ask about the other brands. he offered the info about the sony's being not-so-good.
I guess I'm the only one out here that has not gotten a digital camara yet. I just have a 35mm camara and I love it. It has always taken great pics. And I probably won't go digital until my camara dies.
I'm pretty new to the digital camera world myself. Just got a Kodak EasyShare CX7530 (5 megapixels). It's great!
From what I've learned, if you intend on blowing up your pictures, the more megapixels the better. A 2 megapixel camera does a great job on regular-sized pictures, but blowing them up larger than that distorts the picture. The more megapixels your camera has, the bigger you can blow up your pictures. The pictures my camera takes can (supposedly) be blown up to poster size without distortion. I haven't tried that yet.
Also, batteries seem to be a big deal--don't get a camera that can only use non-rechargeable batteries.
Also (again), most digicams come with some internal memory. Don't buy one that ONLY comes with internal memory and has no port for memory cards.
"Ease of use" (a/k/a "user friendly") seems to be the buzzwords lately, as manufacturers catch up to each other. I got my son a non-brand-name 6 megapixel camera off ebay for $100. The pictures are awesome (as good as/better than my Kodak), but the camera itself is not user friendly; you have to keep the user manual by your side!
I've asked for a digital picture frame on my "wish list"! Hope I get it. Those are sooooo cool!
I haven't had any trouble using Kodak's software, so far anyway. I just got the camera for my b-day on 11/21, so it hasn't been used THAT much.
My husband picked it out for me, and it's probably NOT the one I would have chosen for myself. I probably would have went for the 5.1 megapixed Sony Cybershot (just 'cause the LCD screen is 2.5" -- as compared with the EasyShares 1.8"). Other than that difference, though, the two cameras appear to be very much alike, although the Cybershot is quite a bit more expensive.
Oh, another thing. Optical zoom is to be much preferred over digital zoom. A 3X optical zoom (which zooms BEFORE the picture is taken) is better than a 3X digital zoom (which zooms AFTER the picture is taken). So that means that optical zoom takes your picture as you want it and will print that way; digital zoom is applied after you've taken your picture so will probably become distorted after zooming and printing it.
isn't that digital review site great. I think the canon a95, is easy to use, there are alot of functions, but you don't have to use them, you can just point and shoot, and it's 5megapixels, her is a link to some pics i took with it recently. http://www.photobucket.com/albums/v627/jsf61/? It uses regular and rechargeable batteries, i bought some 2300 rechargeables for it, they are a better value, regular ones don't last long in a camera. It also comes with a 32mb memory card, i just bought a 512 for 47dollars off the internet, the software that comes with it isn't too hard to use, i'm going to buy an ac adapter though for when it's connected to the computer or printer, you don't waste battery life.
I posted this on the last thread about digital cameras, but here it is again. http://www.steves-digicams.com It has TONS of in depth reviews and even shows the kind of pictures they take. I also highly recommend getting a camera that has a lithium-ion battery. The rechargeable ones can be such a pain in the butt.
Great Pictures and info. Thanks. Steve's site is awsome. I have ordered the Canon 95 from Wal Mart. Will be here before Christmas.... Will take some pics of my pet pals JRT to share. God Bless and Thanks again.
I bought my hubby the Kodak Easyshare CX7530 with the printing dock for Christmas. We had it recommended by someone who owns one. They are supposed to be easy to use and very good quality. Plus with the printing dock we can get real pictures right away.
