    I too, bought this camera on black Friday. I love it, but can't understand why it constantly ask me to format my memory card. If I don't format, then it won't let me take pictures and if I do, then it deletes the pictures I've already taken!! Has anyone else had this problem? I'm wondering if it's the memory card or the camera. HELP PLEASE!!!

    • A. I too have had trouble. I used the 4mb card that came with the camera, so I don't think that is the problem. I took the card out and put it back in and now it seems fine. This may be "glitch" in the camera design.

    • A. I bought mine black friday too. I have had this happen time and time again. It really makes me nervous I have lost lots of good pictures because of it. Maybe the probem is that I am using a 2GB SD card and the camera calls for a 4GB card? I haven't tried it yet, but I think I will go buy the 4GB SD card to see if that solves the problem.

    • A. I have had no problems with the memory card. I just followed the step-by-step instructions and after installing the software I have had no problems. I didn't have to reinstall the software after getting my 1st one replaced. Maybe try a new memory card?

    tried different cameras and almost bought an SLR but my neighbor had this camera and was so happy with it I decided to try it, and let me tell you i am glad i did because it is my new favorite toy. i have had it for a month and i use it almost every day. the picture quality is great and the software that comes with it is great too, there are so many things you can do with it, cropping, red-eye remover, it even fixes the minor blemishes on someone's face in the picture. The zoom on this thing is amazing, I couldn't believe it. I am super happy with this camera. I did read all of the reviews and yes the batteries are an issue, but i bought re-chargeable batteries with the wall charger and the car charger, so no matter where i go they can be charged and also the flash comes up everytime you turn the camera on but all you have to do is push it back down, no big deal. If you ask me this camera is great and I am glad I bought it, if your on the fence, just do it, you won't regret the buy.

    Excellent image quality Image Stabilization works even up to 20X optical/digital zoom combo 12X Optical zoom is great Flash power can be controlled and is more than enough power for fill or indoor flash Build quality is good for a camera of this price point Pop-Up Flash comes on when power on switch is pressed..minor nuisance. Would recommend this camera to anyone who wants to get up close and personal with the action. See image from this camera attached.

    I got the camera for my sixteenth birthday. i got it on sale, and I'm really glad I found it. picture quality is fantastic, the quality when zoomed in is amazing, especially since it's got the autofocus. The internal memory is really limited, but it's working just fine with my SD card. Video quality is great, too. Except that if the sound is too loud or too close to the mic it makes a loud buzzing noise on playback. Other than that, it's a really excellent camera. I haven't been able to put it down. I love that it comes with a strap and a lense cap, it keeps it a lot safer from damage. And the easyshare technology is amazing, too. I wouldn't even concider myself an amature photographer, just someone who enjoys taking pictures, and this camera is really simple to use, but it's also got more complicated features that you can use if you want to. I'm kind of in love with it. (the pictures i have with this are the first two i took with the camera. Like, litterally right after I got it out of the box and put the batteries in.)

    To get a camera like this for $149 was shocking to me. When I shop for a camera, I want a camera with the highest optical zoom and good features for the lowest price. I found it!!! It takes very clear pics. I attached some of my dog. The 1st thing I don't like is the fact the flash pops up when you turn the camera on. The 2nd thing I don't like is the video volume. The subject has to be pretty loud in order to hear the sound on playback. I'll have to test it some more. I recommend this product.

    I purchased this camera the day after Thanksgiving. My husband and I both owned Kodak digital cameras that we were still using (and pictures are still great), but they are getting older so we were looking for a newer model. It was not the intention to buy when we did, but it was a good price and we reasoned that we could return it if we were not pleased. I took the first photograph in a poorly lit area of the house and the camera auto-corrected (can be used without). My husband was skeptical at first since it seems more plastic and lighter than our other two Kodaks, however the corrected low light picture and others to follow sold him. We were disappointed that the camera was offered for $20 less after the mad rush of the after-Thanksgiving sale. The both pictures of Santa Claus were taken from across a large school lunchroom.

    Is More of a Camera than I expected

    I wanted to buy myself a good digital camera right before Christmas. I didn't really know or understand digital camera's. I liked the looks of this camera, and I liked the Zoom lens, and it had the # of pixels I thought that I would need. But it was the price that really grabbed me, the price was better than great! In my novice hand, this camera does way more than I expected! I took 1 star of the overall rating because there is so much to learn with this camera! It not only does pictures, it can shoot a picture that is poster sized! It also has video with sound, and you can time it. The camera actually auto corrects your mistakes! I am loving this camera, but I wish that the instructions on how to use the camera were better, as I seem to be learning through my mistakes, but that's okay! It's only been a couple of weeks now, since I bought the camera, and there is so much more that I can do with this camera, amd am still learning how. This is a great camera, and I am glad that I bought it. However, I think if you're just looking to take snap shot's of the kid's, you don't need this much camera! To me this is no longer just a digital camera, it's a hobby!

    to the Boss 0803; I purchased 2 KLIC 8000 rechargeables w/charger for $20 online. (the sight of the rechargeables may throw you off, but they are the ones that work. When you view one, you'll see what I mean) You can get lithium batteries any place they sell batteries (CVS). Also Walmart does sell the same one that came with the camera. So does Target and any other place that sells camera batteries (Best Buy, etc) NOW, MY REVIEW-- I have been into photography since my teen years (40+) and have a Kodak C863 (3X zoom). I've taken all sorts of photos already with this one (macro, scenic, close up, motion, portrait, inanimate objects, distance, panoramic, group and sunlight, night time, darkness, low lighting. So far, I have had no issues with the quality of the photographs. Can't beat that!

    This camera I bought for my friend but I thought of giving it a test and the camera was brilliant in terms of the picture quality and ease of use. The ultimate thing was the zoom, it works amazingly and does not granulate. The drawback that I found was the camera when in full zoom was taking time adjusting the stabilization and in ISO mode the zoom was fading, but apart from that the camera was simply brilliant in the pictures that it delivered. I would recommend it strongly if you are not into a very sleek design and want value for your price that you paid. The camera is a bit odd in shape but its mainly because of the lens with which it delivers this amazing zoom. Overall a very good camera for amateur and a level of professional use as well.

    LOVE IT!!! My old EasyShare CD40 wasn't cutting it anymore and I found the bundle for this one. I take alot of sport action shots and this camera is wonderful! Perfect size-not too big/small to take anywhere. I had to get my first one replaced because the focus button was sticking. I bought the 2yr warranty and had no problem at the store replacing it. I use my camera almost on a daily basis right now and I have had no other problems with it. Zoom is wonderful...I can now zoom in on my daughter doing karate and get the action shot with the sports scene function. The pictures shown were taken in an auditorium and I was about 15 rows from the front. It looks like I was in the front row!

    I LOVE my new camera. It takes excellent photos and video as well. See the attached photos 1 was from 20 ft away and the other caught motion without any minipulation on my part. As I am a novice this camera would be for family, friends, party type photo shooting. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who's more advanced as it might not meet their expectations. I recently found that after the Kodak battery dies if you replace the battery with 2 AA's you can only take an additional 16-17 photos before the camera dies. I'm looking into a rechargable Kodak battery, but haven't found time to search for one. All in all, I still LOVE my new camera and the price was absolutely reasonable.
