The Kodak EasyShare Mini is designed for either first-time camera owners, or those that consider photography a chore. That's legitimate, and we certainly can't fault Kodak for introducing a point-and-shoot that's designed to - you know-point and shoot. But the Mini will never grow with you.
Easy to use
The Kodak Easyshare Mini M200 has a number of key selling points and features that it is going to be bought for, these are 1) it's size 2) it's price and 3) it's ease of use, and possibly 4) it's ability to share photos, although not necessarily in that order. If you want an ultra compact, easy to use camera, that's very good value for money, and aren't too concerned about image quality, then this camera is worth looking at.
Decent little device
At a hundred bucks, this thing is a no-brainer for your kids if you were considering something else. They're they only ones who can operate these little buttons anyway. An alternative would be a rugged camera (kids don't take good care of things), but most of those are significantly more expensive. The Easyshare Mini is a decent little device for someone who can't stand using their phone as a camera, but doesn't want the cost or quality of "real" point and shoots.
Good value for money
The Easyshare Touch offers some unique features, such as the ability to tag photos to be shared on the web in camera and different film effects from those commonly featured on compact digital cameras. If you are looking for a camera with a touch-screen then this camera is well priced given its decent image quality. The lag between switching the camera on and it being ready to take pictures becomes annoying, quickly, and don't even bother using the camera in continuous shooting mode.
its image quality is outstanding.
The good news with the Kodak EasyShare M580 is that its image quality is outstanding. With its 14 megapixels of resolution, the M580 shoots sharp and bright photos that you can print at large sizes. Now the bad news. My Kodak EasyShare M580 review reveals that this camera's response times -- especially its shot to shot delays and shutter lag -- may cause some problems with shooting fast-moving subjects. The M580 does offer a burst mode to help with these problems, which is nice.
The specs look pretty nifty on paper: a 14MP sensor, 5x in-body optical zoom, 720p HD video capture, and that touchscreen, which promises to make taking snaps a simple matter of poking your porky digit at the right settings.
A disappointing digicam that, while great for sharing photos, doesn't do a particularly great job of taking them
