I love the photos this camera takes and it is really easy to use; however, for a first-time user, the instruction guide could be expanded; however, user manual is online, and the directions are fairly basic.

Manuals & Guides
I had a different Kodak camera for years, when that finally died, I wanted something similar so I wouldn't have to learn how to use another camera. This works very similarly to mu old one. I am satisfied with the picture quality, but then I am not a fussy photographer and most of my shots are outdoors . This seems fine for someone like me, who uses a camera occasionally for simple shots.
Good little camera for the price.
Not the most sophisticated camera in the world, but a good value for the money. Takes good photos. Only complaint - battery life is not long; have some charged backup batteries on hand if you plan to take a lot of pictures at one time.
Kodak PIXPRO FZ53
I haven't taken a tremendous amount of pictures yet, but what I have taken are great. I'm going on a trip soon and will give it a through workout then.
Great camera, straight-forward to use!
We got this camera for our young son after returning a similar one from a different known brand because it felt too flimsy and it wasn't straight-forward to use. We were happy to see the better quality in this camera, in the body and the pictures taken. Our son felt right away at easy navigating the menu and the settings, it's easy to get them even without reading the instructions because they are intuitive. We are happy with this purchase, thank you Kodak and Walmart!
Easy to learn
This is my second purchase of this camera. I need electronics that are easy to use as I get flustered. The camera is point and click. There are a few custom settings such as close up, red-eye removal, and a couple of others. Transfering the pictures to the computer is easy. I needed easy and this would work for anyone not savvy to fast learning of electronics.
A wonderful little camera. I love it.
Low quality pictures
The focus/auto-focus does not seem to work very well. Close-ups are horrible. Low light photos are not clear at all. I tried different lighting, zoom, flash, and exposure with little or no improvement. My phone takes far superior pictures.
"In a nut shell"
"In a nut shell" camera does not come with a user manual or s/d card (Kodak has dropped the ball by making this unit way to complicated) it only comes with a quick start guide with minimal instructions! Camera has a multitude of features of which most have no instructions of how to use, to get a manual you have to go on line, & then will find out the manual is 72 pages of hard to understand "Small print" descriptions of multiple steps to use most features, not a camera for the average Once in a while user unless basically all you were to do is just take pictures, Very disappointed in Kodak, Camera went right back to Wal-Mart for refund.
Camera, not what ???
If you are going to transfer to a cpu, you are going to have to purchase more items. I should have known that, when I read, "What's in the box". I did not unpack the camera,, instead I returned it, and purchased a Polaroid iEX29 v2, and a micro memory card. Everthing I wanted, and at a cheaper price.
