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.
