I have owned the Kodak Easy Share CX7430 for over 4 years and I am still pleased with its picture quality considering it is an older model camera. When I purchased this camera the price was much higher than it is now, I didn't want to spend hundreds on a camera, but I did want the quality of a great camera. This camera is simple to use, the display screen is rather large, I like that I can view the picture, and decide if I want to keep it or delete the image. The best pictured I have ever taken have been outdoors, in the natural light, the images are clear and crisp, when printing them out I am amazed by the quality. The features are as expected, there's 9 scene modes to adjust the camera to the setting. I purchased the small printing dock that this camera goes with to print pictures fast and it's fairly simple. I have learned a great deal about digital cameras since making this purchase, and now know the 4.0 mega pixels isn't a super high quality picture, but this camera has taken some really nice up close up photos of my family, scenery outdoors and birthday party images. I have replaced the original batteries that come with the camera, but the rechargeable batteries I am using now don't last very long at all. I also want to mention the video function, which I have used a number of times, I think it's neat to have video and photo in one camera. I am still learning how to take good pictures,I have since purchased a better camera but this one is still a good camera for the money.
