Kodak has made great cameras for many years and the Kodak Easy Share C195 is no exception. This camera features 14 megapixels, Smart Capture, a 3 inch LCD screen & 5 X optical zoom and built in flash. You get special feature settings for all sorts of settings such as taking pics in a museum or sports, or low light, documents, portraits, landscapes, close up, night time pictures etc. The Kodak Easy Share C195 also features a panoramic setting but it is quite difficult to use. You have to line up the edges of picture A, B & C and it can be tricky. This camera features an easy share button which allows you to share your pics via email and Facebook, YouTube & Flicker. The camera takes decent videos and very nice pictures. The speaker on this camera is not good at all. I can barely hear it turned up to the loudest level. I've taken pics of scenery through a car window, while the car was moving, and the pics came out perfectly stunning with no distortion. It is easy to set up your date and time when you first get your camera and insert the batteries. You use the menu arrow button on the back of the camera to tab through the settings. You can use the camera's timer-delay feature to take pics of the whole family with you in it. This has been a durable camera. I have carried my camera around in my purse and it has been bounced around and dropped a few times, and it has continued to work flawlessly. Unfortunately Kodak has decided to leave the digital camera business, but you can still get warranty service for your Kodak products from Kodak for the time being. Image Quality This camera takes very good still pictures. I have even taken pictures from a moving car, through the window and they came out beautiful with no distortion. The videos are pretty decent as long as you don't use the zoom feature. If you zoom while making videos, it distorts the picture a bit. But this is a digital camera and not a video camera. Performance This camera has performed flawlessly for the past year. It takes great pictures. Ease of Use Kodak easy share cameras are simple to use. Point and shoot. And this camera gives you lots of picture setting options to make picture taking even easier. Durability My camera has beenbanged around in my purse and even dropped a couple of time and it still performs great. Battery Life batteries last an okay amount of time. I use regular alkaline batteries and can't compare how long they last as compared to rechargable batteries. Portability this camera is a perfect size to fit into your pocket or purse.
