I have been using this camera for a few years now. I originally had one of the other Kodak cameras and it was good as well, but I try to upgrade as time goes on. This camera is 5 MP, but it performs better than some other cameras with a higer pix rating. This camera consistently delivers very clear, sharp pictures. I added a 1g card for extra pics and it makes things so simple. You have the option to hook it up directly (via cord) to your computer, but the card is quicker. It will only hold a few internal photos, so the card is best. Lots of picture options such as black and white, sepia tone, etc. I also use this as my main video camera. I take videos and then we plug this directly into the tv and the camera becomes a video player as it shows everyone a slideshow and my videos on the tv screen. Fantastic! Video quality is pretty good, but not as clear as the pics ... and it does include sound. Only con is that the LCD screen on back is a little smaller than some they have today and the camera is a little larger than the new shirt pocket size, but you can see the pics and zoom in to make sure you get a good shot - all very simple! Menu driven and use friendly. I give it an A++. So much so, I just purchased a new LCD screen after I dropped it so I can refurbish this old camera instead of buying a fancy new one. BRAVO - Kodak is the best quality in my book! Image Quality It is very good quality for a megapixel amount that is now considered outdated. Still, very clear photos! Performance I really like it better than my newer camera, although the view screen is small. Ease of Use Easy to use and user friendly menus. Durability I have dropped this a lot with very little scratching and damage; however, a can of deet bug spray barely got on the plastic and ate it away. Battery Life Uses double "A" alkaline batteries. Ok on regular photos, but closeup feature photos will drain it almost immediately. Portability Not near as small as most are these days, a bit bulky.
