My husband and I bought a Kodak Easy Share DX7630 when we got married 6 years ago. This has been a great camera. It is easy to use and has all kinds of picture taking modes. You can put the camera on auto for a thought free picture taking experience. Or you can pick from the modes in the camera such as action (for when the subject is in motion), museum (for when no sound or flash desired), close up (for taking pictures just a matter of inches from the subject). It is nice because when you select a mode it gives you a description so you pick the best one for your application. You can even play with setting on your own if you are technically inclined, I am not so my husband has played with shutter speed and the like more than I have. This camera also can take videos. We have used this feature multiple times. It's nice for short little videos and you can upload them directly to your computer. We love our camera so much our family has bought three Kodak Easy Share cameras in the past few years.
