    Not Just “Easy”….GREAT PICTURES, too!, September 27, 2005
    By 

    This review is from: Kodak Easyshare C330 4 MP Digital Camera with 3xOptical Zoom (Electronics)

    For my first digital camera, I bought a Canon A70. The user manual was huge, the camera controls mystifying, and the pictures were blurry. I blamed it on myself, thinking that I needed to read some books on photography. I spent hours reading books about photography, trying to solve the soft focus problem (see? I did learn something! Blurry is called “soft focus.”) I thought my crummy pictures were my fault, after all, Canon was supposed to be the best! A few months short of two years, my Canon died a weird death–one day, I turned it on, and the screen was awash in purple and red blobs. I was angry at Canon after reading that this was a common occurence and there was no fixing it. But secretly, I was relieved. I hated that thing.

    Holding my breath, I bought this EasyShare C330 camera with the dock. I didn’t believe it would take good pictures…after all, how can something “easy” be good? WOW!!! Was I delighted! It really won this skeptic over. The pictures are clear, and the camera is so easy to understand and use! It narrates settings for you, it’s easy to navigate, and it’s a complete joy to use. The software is amazing–you can take a completely unbalanced, over-dark picture, edit it with a one-touch “enhance” button–and you’ve got a perfect picture! The color technology is amazing, too–gorgeous blues, vibrant reds; better than real life! What a delight after that complicated, annoying Canon.

    Because this camera is such a joy to use, I find myself taking 20 times more pictures than I used to. I cannot say enough good things about it…it has completely changed picture-taking for me. Because I love taking pictures now, this camera has taught me more about photography than all the manuals and photography books I had to read.

    In a nutshell, I would recommend this camera to anyone who just wants to take a good picture. Leave the “F stops” and “exposure times” to people who are interested in that sort of thing–I am definitely not. This camera takes fantastic pictures, PERIOD.

    I have done extensive research on many kinds of digital cameras, from Canon to Olympus. This camera was recommended by a friend who knows that most architectures and engineers on the field choose Kodak digital cameras for durability, sharp pictures and great price. This camera is EASY to use and has many shooting modes. It also is small, like holding a deck of cards. Most of all it takes excellent pictures and the price is cheap in comparision to other cameras. Best to upgrade the memory card to 512, it will take over 600 pictures. Also, use recharable batteries and get a AC adapter. Also, get a extended warrenty. I got a 4 year one at Best buy for only $39.99.

    Dont’ waste your money on other brands, if you want a simple, durable and great camera!!!

    The Swiss Army Knife of digital imaging…, July 19, 2006

    This review is from: Kodak Easyshare C330 4 MP Digital Camera with 3xOptical Zoom (Electronics)

    Todays digital amateurs and novices looking for a good camera have a plethora of choices: Huge mega-pixles, techno-savvy features, and then there’s the varied prices. Yet the achilles heel of many digital cameras is they accel in some aspects, but disappoint in others. The Kodak C330 and its Kodak kin are spot-on in all three aspects. Specifically, the Kodak C330 is the Swiss army knife of digital photography.

    I have used Kodak digital cameras before and was impressed early with their ease of use, large screen, unimcumbered layout, and easy to use ‘EasyShare’ software. I shopped for Canon, Nikon, and Pentax cameras to get a sense of what features and prices I could expect. The Kodak C330 and kin first impressed me with their simple layout; big buttons, not those that resemble small cell-phone buttons. Second, the big and bright screen size made it easy to see the picture I took, even in direct sunlight. The simple menu on the camera made the learning curve short, thus giving me an out-of-the-box experience. It uses either SD or MMC cards for additional memory. I suggest going with SD memory as they hold more memory than the older MMC and are now fairly inexpensive. The zoom lens works efficiently and the zoom controls are a cinch to use. Another user-only discovery: The battery life in these cameras is amazingly long! Finally the EasyShare software was a joy to use: Simple and intuitive for both amateurs and novices alike: I easily maneuvered between taking Color,B&W, and Sepia pictures. Transferring pictures from camera to PC was very quick!

    The only dissappointment was with the Kodak Retinar lens. I wish Kodak would have instead used their German Schneider-Kreutznach lens it uses in their upper cameras. The Schneider-Kreutznach lenses are superior to many, if not all the lenses I have seen in and on digital cameras. Likewise, please be forewarned of cheap digital cameras that use inferior lenses. I have learned that while some cameras are feature-laden with techno-gizmos, this sometimes conceals a inferior lens. After all, no feature on any camera is more tangible than the lens itself.

    The Kodak C330 is a great camera for those interested in digital photography and don’t want to spend a fortune. You ought to consider this little Swiss Army knife of a camera. It will not disspoint!

    The charger itself was a good product, but cable did not match the camera socket. It seemed to to have been put in the package as an afterthought.

    Very inexpensive and meets my needs perfectly! The item came as described and works great. It’s nice that it includes the car charger, which allows me to charge the camera battery (removed from the camera) while driving.
