I Love this camera-it's so easy to use and so compact it fits easily into a purse or fanny pack.The  pictures are excellent and I love the range of settings on the camera. It has been used to take pictures of wildlife, family and sporting events and under every circumstance I have used it the pictures have been wonderful. I am NOT a quick learner of new gadgets and technology but I found the instructions for using this camera very easy to follow especially the information on how to use it in conjunction with my TV and my computer. Another big plus is the backup that you get from Kodak if you have any questions-which I had a couple-on how to use the camera. As much  as I try to be careful there have been a couple of times that I dropped it and was very impressed by it;s durability-it received no damage  at all. Many times I have taken pictures of family events and shared the pictures with others and I am always complimented on the quality of the pictures and often asked what kind of camera I use. Another great feature that I especially love is the fact that it can take up to thirty seven pictures without having to use a memory card-that is a wonderful perk when you are in a situation that you take more pictures than you planned on and -as I did one time-you don't have an extra memory card with you.

I got this as a birthday present. It was on sale at the store and the price could not be beat. Plus I have always be a fan of the Kodak Brand. This was my very first digital camera, 4 years ago. I was so thrilled to finally own one. I took it on one of my first vacations in years. I was happy about the small size and that it was so lightweight. I am also pleased by the fact it takes a 1GB memory card. That is a plus. 

The software that came with it was not so good. My XP computer did not like it at all. If I tried to cable toe camera to the pc and use the software, it would crash. I chose to bypass that and only use the memory card, skipping the camera's internal memory.

I like the ability to zoom the shot in and out using the control on the back, and the Review feature. It is so simple to look at my pictures and delete the clunkers. The only other drawbacks for me were I wish the shoot button was a bit bigger and that the battery door would slide easier.

All-in-all, it really was the perfect starter camera for my first foray into the digital world. And I still grab it when I see that quick pic I want to snap.

Love the camera

By 

from White Pine, TN

Comments about Kodak - EasyShare C530 Digital Camera:

I have had a great experience with this camera. I have had it for a year now and it is in the same shape it was when i bought it. The only problem i have is red eye. It seems no matter what I do it is always there, but with all the new technologies there are was to solve that real easy. It is small but not to small and It is very easy to use and figure out.I like how it makes sharing your photographs easy.

just like it says....easy!!!

By

Comments about Kodak - EasyShare C530 Digital Camera:

This camera is very easy to use and it will make your picture taking an enjoyment and make you seem like you can really take good pictures. And if you don't like them you can delete without having to pay for getting them developed. The printer dock is a plus for those who do not like to send off pictures or people who stockpile film. One button and your print is there. You can get this camera in a set with the printer dock or alone. It is worth the money.

An easy to use EasyShare camera.

By 

from Thomson, GA

Comments about Kodak - EasyShare C530 Digital Camera:

I'm very happy with my EasyShare camera. It does just what I want it to do. I have poor vision and it allows me to take decent photos at the push of a button. I always use the auto setting. I always use the view finder to see my subject because it is easier for me to take a picture of what I want. When I use the LCD screen I don't always get the photo that I want.

The only drawback that I have is that when I take a photo in low light sometimes it's too dark. Other than that I'm very happy with my pictures.

The photo printer and charger is a great plus. My pictures come out very clear. Easy to use. Love the charger. Saves me a lot of money in batteries. Have used regular batteries and they last a long time. Happy with both regular and rechargable batteries.

I would recommend this camera to anyone who wants an easy to operate camera. I'm thinking of upgrading to another Kodak EasyShare because my camera is getting older. It's about five years old and I think I may try an updated EasyShare.

The easy share is a nice starter camera

By 

from Livonia, MI

Comments about Kodak - EasyShare C530 Digital Camera:

I have had this camera for quite awhile now. It takes pretty nice photos and is a good starter camera. I like that it is easy to use and has a decent size display window.. The menu on the camera is easy to follow and downloading pictures to your computer is pretty quick and easy.

 Some things I don't care for are that the battery life is not good. Also, the memory size is seriously small and I had some troubles getting the software removed from my computer. All in all if you just want to have a casual camera this one is good. If you want anything comprehensive or to hold alot of pictures I would look elsewhere.

Great for the amateur photographer!

By 

from Pottsville, PA

Comments about Kodak - EasyShare C530 Digital Camera:

I got my Kodak EasyShare C530 as a gift and have not found a single thing bad to say about it. I'm not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination but it is an easy and fun camera to use. I didn't have to spend hours pouring over a User Manual just to figure out how to turn it on. I picked it up, got the batteries in and started taking pictures immediately. The memory card slot allows you to maximize your photo taking sessions and stores your pictures safely and easily. This is an A+ product from Kodak!

Best images, affordabele

By 

from Mountain Grove, MO

Comments about Kodak - EasyShare C530 Digital Camera:

I love my easyshare camera. It is very easy to use, that my young children can use it with ease. The software it comes with is excellent and self explanitory for editing your photos and uploading them. This camera is just turn it on, get your box on the target and snap the photo, it shows up all of a sudden for you to see if you like it or  want to delete it. This camera holds i think around 80 pictures without a memory card. But the memory card, is a must buy for this item. The camera is small enough to put in a purse and take anywhere to snap those precious moments you dont want to forget.
